Physical Therapy incorporating sports massage, deep tissue massage, osteopathic mobilization techniques and corrective exercise.

About me

I am delighted to introduce my new clinic in Newmarket, based at the Lodge, in the grounds of the Heath Court Hotel.

I have been a practising sports and remedial massage therapist for the last 12 years with verifiable success in pain relief, injury management and corrective exercise in that time. I work independently and also alongside Osteopaths in their private practices.

In the last 2 years I have studied at MSc level at the European School of Osteopathy where I have furthered my anatomical learning and osteopathic mobilisation techniques.

Prior to that my qualifications are :

  • BTEC Level 5 Diploma Sports Massage and Treatments
  • Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy Level 4
  • Corrective Exercise Specialist, National Academy of Sports Medicine
  • Certified Personal Trainer, National Academy of Sports Medicine
  • Performance Enhancement Specialist, National Academy of Sports Medicine
  • City and Guilds Level 4 – Teacher Training/Lifelong Learning
    (subsequently taught advanced massage on courses UK wide – deep tissue, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage, pregnancy)


These studies afforded me training in:

  • Conducting and objective physical assessment
  • Applying Neuromuscular and soft tissue mobilisation techniques
  • Prescribing corrective exercise for injuries
  • Soft tissue dysfunction

In 2018 I gained a postgraduate Certificate in Obesity and Weight Management (MSc) at the University of Chester, Department of Clinical Sciences and Nutrition- September 2018.

Mike is phenomenal! I visited Mike after a family member highly recommended him. I’ve had chronic back pain for more than 5 years, and thought it was originating from my left hip. I’ve tried several physios/chiropractors with no results. Within half an hour Mike had determined that the cause was more likely three points in my right leg. After two treatments, and some targeted stretching between sessions the symptoms are significantly improved, and I suspect they’ll soon be completely resolved. After many years of dance training I thought I was fairly aware of my body, but through systematic testing and observation Mike found a problem I didn’t even know I had. Honestly, I wish I’d found him sooner, and cannot recommend him highly enough!

I’m a bodybuilder and went to see Mike for some help with my shoulders and neck. After a short while working with him I felt instant relief and a major increase in mobility in both of my shoulder. Would definitely recommend

Mike was professional in his approach and advice he gave. I left the practice with noticeable results for a long standing condition. I would recommend to anyone who is experiencing issues. His flexibility to appointment times was also a factor in choosing Mike as I can sometimes struggle finding treatment times due to work commitments. Great he is also based in central Newmarket with ample parking.

Mike is excellent and highly recommended, I’ve seen him a number of times now for sports massage on sore legs from cycling/running. Mike doesn’t just treat the symptoms, but goes over and above to understand the root cause of the injury/soreness. Incredibly knowledgeable & professional.

I have ongoing problems with tension in my shoulders and upper back and felt an instant improvement after my first appointment today. Mike is friendly, professional and thorough. I will be making another appointment for some further treatment.

Mike is excellent. He listens and takes notes at the beginning to understand your issues. He then works methodically through them to give you great results along with exercises to do at home to keep you in good shape. I would highly recommend.

Went to see Mike with a calf injury and after two visits was back on court pain free. Can highly recommend. He is definitely worth a visit for sports injury.

Mike is one of the few people who really know what they are doing concerning massage. I have been to over 10 masseurs and most just give you a general or deep tissue massage. Rarely do they manipulate joints which is often necessary to completely rectify long term problems. Highly recommended.

Mike Bell is always polite, professional and good humoured. I have visited him for several years and he has helped me greatly with my back and knee injuries. Mike also always takes the time to explain what he is doing and why. I would I recommend him highly.

What I can do for YOU

Some clients come to me as they have developed tightness and restrictions in their bodies, resulting in a limited range of movement.  I help such clients to release this tightness so that they can function better, be more at ease, and develop improved movement and health.

Some people need deep tissue massage and stretching in order to aid general maintenance, and people who exercise or work-out come to see me in order to improve recovery rates and function.

When clients see me for the first time. they can expect the following:

  • A personal, confidential and professional service.
  • A consultation to understand the problem/issue and any relevant history.
  • Methodical and systematic testing to determine the main areas to focus on.
  • Undertake the treatment; this will be addressed via manipulation, soft tissue and osteopathic techniques.
  • Provide advice and information for post treatment support

Its always my aim that my clients leave feeling satisfied that they have been afforded a bespoke, individual and tailored treatment for their needs.
