Steve Mason

I have been working with complementary therapies since 1999 and have a passion for Traditional Chinese Medicine and advanced therapeutic massage. I have travelled extensively both in the UK and overseas to learn the best techniques to help my patients restore a sense of health and vitality.

I like to fuse together specialist techniques of deep tissue and clinical massage, myofascial release, acupressure and acupuncture which I have studied for more than 10-years at some of the UK’s leading massage institutions as well as overseas, including the Shandong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China and The White Lotus Foundation in California. I have travelled to Thailand for additional yoga and meditation training and to India for extensive massage training in Chavutti Thirumal.

As an acupuncturist, I find that using needles or acupressure as part of my treatments can powerfully enhance the benefits and results.
Having such a wide range of skills, every person I see is given a detailed consultation before we agree how best to work together to achieve the best results. In my therapeutic work, I have treated people with all manner of aches and pains including, back neck and shoulder pain, sciatica, hip, lumbar, knee and ankle problems.

As a professional member of CThA, I have extensive experience of working with people from all walks of life and treating a wide range of ailments. Such as rotator cuff, knee and hamstring injuries as well as more complex problems, such as frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and plantar fasciitis. I passionately believe in rehabilitative exercise and have trained as a yoga teacher as well as studying yin and therapeutic yoga.

I am a life long student and have travelled extensively to further my skills. I am a devoted vegetarian and constantly strive to further my own personal growth and development. I believe in encouraging people to feel empowered and to find their own answers by taking an active and responsible role in their lives.
