Myofascial pain, is the result of soft tissue injury, occurring within the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia, which forms the musculoskeletal structure.
When injury, inflammation, physical or emotional trauma occurs, the fascia can become tight and cause pain and/or restricted range of motion.
Myofascial stretching, muscle energy technique, medical acupuncture, joint mobilisation, spinal manipulation, exercise prescription, postural advice and education, and use of wave stone therapy (heat/cold).
My career started over 20 years ago as an exercise consultant in health clubs in London. During those early years I trained in Sports Therapy and this lead to studying manual therapy techniques. In 1997 I studied at the London School of Sports Massage under Mel Cash. Following on from this, I became qualified in remedial treatments which allowed me to effectively treat more chronic muscular conditions.
Reviews and Ratings
I am now a relatively inactive office worker but still enjoy a proper massage to get rid of the aches and pains of modern life. As the other reviewer mentioned, Barry is very keen to offer advice on how to prevent a relapse of the problems you have asked him to sort out. You could say that he is potentially doing himself out of future business.
Aside from the fact that he is very competent, he is also a nice guy who made me feel at ease throughout. To top it off, he charges half of what a fancy spa will charge for a wishy washy whale music and scented candle massage.
