I'm recovering well and getting faster....I'm so grateful I got it fixed....my instep was really worrying me.....you also let me know to take care of my body and to take twinges etc seriously.

Nigel, a runner

Over the last year, a deteriorating condition in my upper thigh had got even worse with increasing pain and stiffness, which no longer improved with use, and I felt my limp was in danger of being permanent....and acting on a personal recommendation I consulted Mike. After one treatment there was a marked improvement and now it seems to have completely gone and after some months there has been no sign of a return. Mike's treatment has been amazing.... I now attend the gym again with no problems.

I think this Pilates thing is really working...

When you find a good masseur you stick to them, that's why I've been seeing Mike for more than 10 years. Having regular treatment has kept me running injury free and ready for my next workout with fresh legs. He always takes time on the problem areas and never rushes through the treatment - I would recommend him to anyone - give him a go, to help you achieve the best you can.

"Being treated by Mike has been a revelation. He pin-pointed the issues in my long-term back problem almost immediately and in just two sessions he has already made a huge difference. No drugs, no complex exercises just clear analysis and straight-forward corrective action."


Great Results, Personable, Expert

Mike intuitively knows how to use his hands to release muscle tension, enabling me to move more fluidly again. He also imparts a load of knowledge which I hungrily absorb. After a session with Mike I always feel like dancing!


Mary Nonde Dance-Movement and Creative Arts Teacher

"I was desperately looking for someone who could help me with my back, neck and knee problems, all made worse by arthritis. Mike is VERY professional and knows what he is talking about. He knows exactly how to keep me on my feet and as for sorting out my neck pain and headaches, there is no one like him! So many people feel they need to go to someone who will crunch their bones to get relief but really the bones are being held together by muscle, so why not go for the root cause! I hope Mike never retires... as I couldn't do without him."



I very much enjoy and look forward to my weekly Pilates class with Mike. Being new to Pilates I appreciate the way Mike breaks down the exercises step by step, which is the way I learn best. I also appreciate the time he takes to encourage me to stretch myself  that little bit further each week to get the most from the class. Mike has a teaching style that works superbly well  for me for which is firm, caring and fun.

spine01A desire to help others led Mike Ker to practice Massage and to teach Pilates. Many hours spent talking to those who were treating the many injuries Mike Ker sustained whilst playing rugby and distance running fired him with an enthusiasm to learn how to help others to avoid injury or to recover as quickly and effectively as possible.


Pilates worked for him, which is why he now teaches it.


Mike Ker first qualified as a Massage therapist in 1995. In 2000 and again in 2001, he received Diplomas from the prestigious London School of Sports Massage in both sports massage and remedial massage.


In 2004 Mike qualified as a Pilates instructor with the Body Control Pilates Academy. He is continually updating his knowledge through courses, workshops, conferences etc.


Mike Ker is a full member of The Sports Massage Association and The Body Control Pilates Association. Both of these Bodies are at the forefront in seeking National registration for their members.


Pilates achieved National registration in February 2006, with Body Control Pilates the first school not only to meet the registration requirements in full, but even at basic level, to exceed them .


Mike works throughout South Bucks and East Berkshire and the surrounding areas with clinics and classes in Marlow, Bourne End and High Wycombe.

If you are injured or have an ache, why not book a treatment or come and join a class and enjoy the benefits of Pilates, or arrange for a "Personal Trainer" appointment. We look forward to helping you.
