Michael Jarvis

Michael massage therapist in Brighton

After working and managing teams in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods Industry, I decided to leave and retrain as a massage therapist at the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM). I qualified as an ISRM Certified clinical sport and remedial massage therapist in 2016, and have since continued to develop my knowledge, passing further professional development courses and diplomas at the Jing Institute.

It was through triathlon, running, playing golf, and through working in offices over the last 20 years (aching neck, back, wrists) that I first experienced massage therapy, and then became interested in it not only as a means to recover from injury, but also to prevent it. I have since become fascinated by the musculoskeletal system, and how the various massage techniques, plus improvements to a person’s posture and strength through self-care, can help relieve pain and stiffness.
Each of my treatments are tailored to the needs and goals of the individual, whether it be to relieve everyday postural aches and pains, prepare for and/or recover from surgery, manage both pre and post event training, or to simply relax and de-stress. They include assessment, treatment, and if needed, rehabilitation advice.

I am a full member of the both the ISRM and CNHC.
