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...

Nick, after only six lessons

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.

Because of the small class sizes clients can be accommodated in any class on an occasional basis, provided there is room. This means that if a client can't make a class then they may be able to swap to another for that week.




One to one lessons can be held at your home or office, or at Mike's clinics in High Wycombe, Marlow or Bourne End. One to one lessons are £40/hour (a small travel supplement may be added, depending on distance)


Pilates needs to be functional. In other words what is learned in class should be used to improve posture and movement in our daily lives. To that end, Mike asks his clients to practice, but more importantly he wants them to be aware of what they need to do carry themselves well, and, using the correct muscles to move effectively, in alignment.

Many people come to Pilates because they have back, neck or shoulder pain. This is even more the case with Mike's clients, as many of them are already his patients who have undergone or are undergoing his remedial massage treatments. Pilates is helping them to move better, to become less injury prone and to suffer less back ache etc.
