About me

Clinton is a qualified Clinical Sports Massage Therapist, Deep Tissue Massage Therapist and Myofascial Release Therapist working in a family-run clinic with his wife, who is also a trained Massage Therapist and Pilates Teacher.

Clinton trained with London School of Sports Massage where he did his BTEC Level 5 in Sports & Remedial Massage. Since then he's gone on to do more advanced training with Jing Advanced Massage Training and Myofascial Release UK where he's learnt a more structural approach to treating the whole body and also skilled techniques like myofascial unwinding.

Having always been fit and active Clinton loves using his skills in soft tissue therapy, postural assessment and rehab to help his clients fulfil their optimum potential, whether that is to live pain-free in day to day life, to prepare for events like marathons and triathlons or to work in physical and demanding day jobs.

Sports Massage - Clinton uses deep tissue sports massage to rehabilitate sports injuries, improve flexibility, aid recovery time, increase mobility and relieve everyday stress. He treats a lot of people with back pain, neck pain and shoulder tension.

Myofascial Release - Myofascial Release (MFR) is a gentle but highly effective hands-on treatment that works with your body's fascia or connective tissue system. We have planes of fascia that run from the soles of our feet to the top of our skull. If we have restrictions within that fascia, like C-section or appendix scars or poor posture and overworking muscles, the whole body and its internal systems can be compromised. True myofascial therapists use advanced skills and "listening" to feel the pulls and restrictions within each individual's body. Using gentle, slow, sustained pressure they work to free these restrictions. Each treatment is truly unique. Myofascial Release treatments can lead to increased ease of movement, reduction of pain and better posture.

        Further information

        I listen carefully to what my clients tell me and work to treat the underlying causes of their presenting issues and not just the most obvious symptoms.

        I treat every client as an individual and no two treatments are the same.

        We take a detailed case history and assess the body before creating a treatment plan, followed up with stretching and a detailed care plan so that a client knows how they can help themselves towards recovery or improvement between appointments.

        I ask new massage clients with a presenting problem to try and see my regularly three times with short intervals so that we can try and effect change, from there my goal is to space treatments further apart and keep the improvements for longer each time as well as create more strategies to prevent recurrence.
