About Me Cover
Mark Bailey Massage Therapy

Whether it’s pain, fatigue, poor posture, stress or anxiety, we all have an ailment that makes day to day life that little bit more difficult. Whatever is holding you back, it might be time to consider massage therapy.

I’ve been a massage therapist since 2012 and I’ve learnt that people rarely suffer from one isolated problem. I treat everyone who comes to me as an individual and I find out what is happening to them and, more importantly, why. It’s only then that we’ll be able to find the best therapy to help. Massage therapy is about making you feel better as a whole, enhancing your overall health and wellbeing.

I hadn’t realised the range of benefits that can be achieved from a massage until I experienced it myself. I suffered a shoulder injury from dancing and struggled for well over a year. I visited the doctors but was only prescribed ibuprofen and rest. This didn’t help at all. In fact, if anything, the pain actually got worse. It was then that I decided to book myself a sports massage. After the first treatment I felt some relief from the problem. Within two months I was nearly back to full health.

It was then that I realised you don’t have to put up with chronic pain and discomfort. Massage therapy can help anyone overcome physical difficulties and get them back to doing everyday tasks and the things that they enjoy. There is even the potential to become pain free.

Qualifications

I found the massage therapy that I received so beneficial that, it inspired me to train as a sports and remedial massage therapist myself. So in 2011 I began my BTEC Level 5 qualification with the Oxford School of Sports Massage.

I have been practicing since I qualified in 2012, and now have a great deal of experience to add to that. I also have a Level 3 Personal Training and Level 3 Exercise Referral qualifications and I’m a Sivananda Yoga Teacher CYT 200. This means that I can help with exercises and offer more advice and support for what you can do around the massage therapy to make your problems easier.
