MOOREPliates is really pleased to announce that Chris will be offering treatments at our studio, if you would like to book a treatment please book directly with Chris on 07743 95023 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Chris offers a unique soft tissue prevention, treatment and rehabilitation approach, that is designed specifically for you. Using advanced sports and remedial massage techniques, combined with flexibility and strengthening homecare exercises, we aim to get you back to feeling your best!
It is a major part of our philosophy that treating the cause of the problem and not just the injury site itself, is a huge factor of overcoming your injury. Which is why, through an initial detailed assessment, a treatment plan will be designed that is specific to you and your needs and will include homecare exercises that compliment the treatment.
I started my career in the health and fitness industry, where I initially trained as a personal trainer, this gave me a good understanding of the body in relation to movement, performance and potential. However, it quickly became apparent to me, that functional exercise shouldn't be a standalone tool in the treatment of soft tissue rehabilitation. I wanted more knowledge and to become an expert regarding the prevention and treatment of soft tissue injuries, which led me into the world of massage where I decided to train at the prestigious North London School of Sports Massage, a leading school in the field of soft tissue therapy.
Here my knowledge grew and just being around experts in the field of soft tissue therapy gave me a different perspective and understanding of the body and the way to treat it. I have found that I have now returned to NLSSM as an assistant tutor, helping to pass on my knowledge to the new generation of soft tissue therapist.
Since treatment with Chris started, my back pain and general mobility have improved significantly. He is a very talented therapist who listens carefully and provides excellent client care. He delivers muscle manipulation in such a way you feel little or no discomfort when being treated and has kept me moving when other therapists failed. I cannot recommend him highly enough and wouldn’t be without him.
I went to see Chris after a slightly heavier than usual exercise week. Chris took the time to understand my exercise routine and the impact this had on my body. He really worked through my aching muscles helping to ease the tension but without causing any pain. I came away from my session feeling so much more relaxed. The next morning the pain in my hamstrings had gone and my shoulders and neck felt lights and more mobile, I can really recommend Chris.
As my working day involves much computer deskbound work it was a lovely relief to try out a deep tissue massage from Chris. He has very calm and gentle approach to his work, which also reflected in his personality. Concentrating on my back and shoulders, he manipulated all the stressed areas without any discomfort. but releasing knotted areas and easing my shoulders into an extension gently. The oils he used had a beautiful aroma, and later felt my skin had the additional benefit too. It was a very relaxing experience and I look forward to another session.
