Mike Bell, B.A. (Hons)

I work professionally as a Level 5 Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist. This is the highest level of sports massage qualification in the UK, and this is what makes me unique in the North-East.

Sports massage can treat everyone of all ages and is applicable to all soft tissue related conditions.  This has many applications, including pain management, injuries, chronic discomfort and pain, releasing tight muscles, muscular imbalances or recovery from training workouts.

My passion and interest is in helping people function and perform better

This corrective massage approach can help you to recover, function better, regain muscular strength and balance, improve circulation, and relieve the pressures of stress and tension.

I have taught advanced massage workshops to experienced massage professionals, worked alongside and supported chiropractors, and provided pre/post massage support at sporting events.

I am also a highly qualified NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) Corrective Exercise Specialist and Performance Enhancement Specialist. This competancy increases the effectiveness of my sports massage and clinical assessment because of my understanding of how the body functions. From an exercise perspective I can advise my clients on the correct exercise strategy to approach, whether it is in regards to injury, rehabilitation, muscular imbalance or health/fitness.
