About me

I am a BTEC6 Advanced Clinical and Sports Massage Therapist specialising in therapy for chronic pain relief. 

My interest in holistic therapies for chronic pain relief stems from my own chronic pain experience, having had chronic low back pain since my late teens. Treatments incorporating myofascial release transformed my low back pain. This inspired me to train to the highest level in clinical and sports massage in order to help others.

The pain issues I work with can be split into two broad categories: Musculoskeletal (MSK) pain and complex pain

MSK Pain

Musculoskeletal (MSK) pain can be described as discomfort or pain in the bones, muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments of the body. This type of pain can affect people of all ages and can be caused by a variety of factors such as injury, overuse, poor posture, or underlying medical conditions.

Common examples of musculoskeletal pain include:

  • Low back pain and sciatica
  • Jaw pain and TMJ issues
  • Frozen shoulder and impingements
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendonitis and Tendinopathies

Complex Pain

Conditions affecting multiple parts of the body, involving multiple body systems, or where you experience a multitude of symptoms, can be categorised as complex pain conditions.

These can include:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Long Covid
  • CVA/Stroke
  • Hypermobility Disorders, including EDS
  • Chronic Stress
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Psoriatic arthritis

Whether you have had a diagnosis or are still searching for answers and treatment, you will likely have had varying experiences, dead ends and frustrations.

If you have a complex pain condition, I highly recommend booking a FREE 15-minute Discovery Video Call.

This way, you can take your time to explain your previous experiences and together we can explore if treatment such as Advanced Myofascial Release, may be appropriate for you.

If you have MSK pain, I suggest either booking a FREE 15-minute Discovery Video Call, or booking the Jing Method™ Clinical Massage.

What to expect

If, like others, you feel let down or lost in the medical system, frustrated with conventional treatments, or feel that you or your symptoms are misunderstood or dismissed, this space is for you. Here you will find a non-judgmental environment, specifically centred around you and the outcomes you desire.

The therapies I adopt are holistic, meaning they address you the whole person. These therapies are evidenced by the latest research and have been proven to be highly effective in both pain relief and pain management – promoting relaxation, and improving overall wellbeing.

Discovery Video Call (15 mins) £ FREE

This free video call is perfect for exploring if clinical massage is right for you. We'll have time to discuss the nature of what you're experiencing and what you could expect from a treatment plan. 

Holistic Therapies

First Visit Appointment (75 min) £85.00

All first visits are 75 minutes. To start our session we'll explore and agree our treatment aims. Our assessment and orthopedic tests will inform our approach and which techniques to incorporate in our Advanced Myofascial Release or Jing Method treatment.

Jing Method™ Clinical Massage (60 min) £80.00

This session is for you if you have persistent pain, including headaches, jaw pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel pain, low-back pain, sciatica, or plantar fasciitis. Our session will combine targeted and soothing advanced soft-tissue techniques including myofascial release, trigger point therapy and light stretches. The Jing Method helps with lasting pain relief, and also leaves you feeling deeply relaxed and renewed. If this is your first appointment our session may run 10 minutes over the hour to allow for consultation and assessment. 

Advanced Myofascial Release (60 min) £80.00

Fascia is a strong, elastic, connective tissue surrounding and threading through our muscular system. This tissue can become hard, dry and hyper-sensitive. Myofascial Release techniques work in harmony with the nervous system to release and soften the tissue, in turn relieving pain and discomfort. This session is for you if you have persistent or systemic pain including myofascial pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, or irritable bowel syndrome. If this is your first appointment our session may run 10 minutes over the hour to allow for consultation and assessment. If you have or suspect you have fibromyalgia, please first book a free discovery video call or call us on 0207 661 7044.

What People Say

"I was sceptical that a massage would make any difference to my back pain. However this is no ordinary massage. To my great surprise and relief, the day after my treatment with Steven I could turn over and get out of bed for the first time in years without any stiffness or pain."

Carolyn, London N1

“I have had chronic pain for some time in multiple areas of my body. Steven and I are currently working on myofascial release. Steven is professional and understanding. His treatment plan is fully comprehensive in finding effective ways in addressing tightness and pain in the body pre and post treatment. I love working with Steven and I can already feel more free in my body.”

Lee, London N13

“I would highly recommend Steven's treatments. I contacted Steven because of the neck and shoulder pain I experience. Even after one session I noticed an improvement in movement and comfort and a significant improvement after a few sessions. I like the balance of a targeted approach combined with a holistic soothing massage that Steven gives. He has a lot of technical knowledge as well as a friendly manner that puts you at ease. Highly effective and relaxing treatment.”

Amy, London N17

“I contacted Steven via his website a few months ago for a chronic shoulder issue. I have been very impressed with the service Steven has provided. He is professional and knowledgeable, and has delivered thorough and effective treatment in less than 6 sessions to date. The initial and follow up videos have also been very helpful and efficient. All communication has been timely and personable. I would highly recommend Steven.”

Emma, London N4
