Mike is a Level 5 Soft Tissue Therapist and specialises in clinical sports massage as well as neuromuscular techniques, including Muscle Energy Technique, Soft Tissue Release, Positional Release Technique and more. Once you have had a full physical assessment (see Pain Rehabilitation for more information), these techniques will be available to form part of your recovery.
1-to-1 exercise coaching, or personal training, is used to ensure perfect technique, adherence to the programme, and appropriate exercise intensity is maintained. The Optima Health & Performance studio is a private facility on the outskirts of Truro, close to the A30, where all 1-to-1 sessions take place.
Correct nutrition and a balanced lifestyle are fundamental factors in achieving your goals. The resources for your body to grow and improve after exercise come from the things you do the rest of the time. You literally are what you eat!
Modern holistic, or integrative, health will often incorporate laboratory testing to ensure that the nutritional, supplemental and lifestyle advice that is being given to you is tailored to your individual needs.
