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

About me

I have been based at the Clinic in Newmarket for approaching two years now and am delighted with the regular customer base I have built up in that time. The Clinic offers free parking and is located at the Lodge in the grounds of the Heathcourt Hotel, CB8 8DY.

I have been a practising sports and remedial massage therapist for over 15 years with verifiable success in pain relief, injury management and corrective exercise in that time. (See my reviews on Google)

In 2020/21 I studied at MSc level at the European School of Osteopathy where I furthered my anatomical learning and osteopathic mobilisation techniques. I believe in ongoing learning and development and am also about to complete an advanced Manipulative Therapy course in June 2023 which enables me to offer my clients the optimum treatments in manual medicine.

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.

My daughter suffers badly from fibromyalgia. Nobody has ever listened before or been able to support and help her. Mike has been brilliant at listening and it has made such a difference to her. I cannot recommend him enough.

As soon as you meet Mike Bell he makes you feel at ease, he listens, take notes and gets to the root of the problem. He's passionate about his work and helping clients get to their goals. After one visit I noticed a definite improvement. I highly recommend Mike Bell, two of my friends have already had appointments with Mike and they feel the same.

I can’t recommend Mike enough. Having suffered a spinal injury in 2015, I have spent years and years (and a lot of money) trying different physios, doctors and consultants with the aim to solve my lower back pain. After just 1 session with Mike, he was able pinpoint the area that was causing my lower back pain, something no one else had picked up before. Since having sessions with Mike, I am no longer experiencing any pain in my lower back and I feel like a whole new person! Mike is extremely knowledgeable and professional and I thank him enough.

Mike was recommended to me by a good friend. After visiting 3 previous Physiotherapists each with a different diagnosis for my painful inner leg. Mike finally 'nailed' the cause and provided me with the solution. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

This man is a genius, I felt a different person after my first session and I have only had two, I wanted to do cartwheels back to the car, as was so relieved the pain had gone! Mike takes time to pinpoint the exact location of the problem and works on it explaining all the time the reasons why it's causing pain and what needs to be avoided and what he is doing. He is so reassuring and gave me exercises to carry on with at home. I would recommend him 100% as worth every penny and more! Incidentally, I am still waiting for my NHS appointment which with physio's going on strike in the New Year will probably be canceled! Merry Christmas everyone, Mike has saved mine!

I’m so glad I’ve found Mike. I recently moved to the area and was looking for help in solving a long term injury which previous physio, chiropractors and sports massage haven’t helped with. Mike looked deeper into the mechanics of the issue offering a mixture of massage, exercises and joint movement. I’m 2 sessions in and am already enjoying the benefits of little or no pain. I shall continue visiting until my issue is resolved. Thanks so much Mike, you’ve really made a difference to me!

I was recommended to Mike. I walked in with serious pain and walked out pain free and with a lot more ease. He was very knowledgeable and extremely professional. I’ve had my 2nd appointment with him and cannot recommend him highly enough.

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.
