About me

Instant Pain Relief.

Wouldn't it be nice to rid yourself of everyday aches and pains and go about your daily routine free from the daily aches and pains endured from a busy work life balance?

Consider Okinawan Bodywork Dynamics (OBWD), a form of Shiatsu OBWD. It’s an alternative therapy based on touch, using healing techniques based on Japanese practices that are thousands of years old.

Ailments are caused by an imbalance between mind and body, when the meridians or channels through which energy (Chi) flows around the body become blocked.

By stimulating various acupressure points, tension is released and the body and mind are harmonised, allowing the energy to flow. This encourages physical and emotional wellbeing.

Heavily influenced by and based on age-old techniques and methodology, found in Japanese anma and some modern-day shiatsu styles, Bodywork Dynamics also contains elements of diverse disciplines as Thai massage, osteopathy, tui-na, Indian head massage, acupressure, kinesiology and regular massage.

Indeed by it’s adaptive and creative way of working Bodywork Dynamics naturally animates such as progressive state of development infusion. Students, practitioners and tutors are encouraged to research and adopt different techniques from variant systems, all be it with underlying principle of the three R’s of bodywork as the core element.

Training, qualifications & experience

This can only be achieved by working with the recipient and aiding them into deep states of relaxation, then helping them let go.Using our minds in our treatments and not our physical strength, karmic release is our secret.

I use these techniques to successfully treat a wide array of conditions, particularly those with persistent symptoms. Muscle and sports injuries, conditions such as migraines, sciatica, depression, digestive problems and epilepsy all form part of my work and everyday list of ailments to treat.

Examples of treatable symptoms: -

Constant headaches or migraines

  • Loss of appetite
  • Reduced sleep
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Sciatica
  • Stiff joints
  • Stress

Further information

In 2010, I started the journey towards becoming an OBWD practitioner he made an appointment to see Paul Jefferies for a recurring achillies tendon injury and quickly took an interest in Bodyworks. Mr Jefferies selected Mike to enrol as a student in his OBWD class, which he still attends today.

The extraordinary results, tuition and treatments was life changing and personally helped me in my spiritual journey and to achieve a wonderful worklife balance.

I successfully harnessed and channelled a successful professional management career spanning 30 years, coalescing occupational methodologies with learning’s and intricacies such as Neuro Linguistic Programming, Life Coaching, Yoga, Qigong, Tai Chi, Meditation, and spirituality.

The results have been astonishing, Sarah Hirst one of my clients describes the treatment as phenomenal going on to say that  it can be quite uncomfortable and sometimes painful the outcome far out weighs either of those feelings. The sense of well being and freedom is wonderful. The movement within my body is greater and the aches and pains diminish. The thing that always strikes me is Mikes ability to work with each individual, his sense of belief and understanding is 100% He gained my trust and confidence to give me the best possible treatment he can. If you want to feel free from mental and physical stress then you need look no further.

I treat clients part-time and all proceeds go to fund my continued study. I gain immense satisfaction from the feedback and results from all those who I have helped. I believe that we all have a purpose in life and if we are to live by our top values then we will be fulfilled and enriched in life.

If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition, please consult your GP for advice before starting any new therapies.
