Who are we?

I am Martin Whitney, professional Sports and Deep Tissue massage therapist, muscle activator and personal trainer with extensive experience treating sports professionals, amateurs and members of the general public alike. With a proven track record of supporting teams (match/tournament days included) and one to one in clinic, I specialise in recovery and rehabilitation from all types of soft tissue damage, pain and injuries. I am also trained in Neural Muscular Activation techniques, which completes my range of abilities allowing me to deliver, a “complete” treatment.

As a former Royal Marine, my career unfortunately ended during basic training after suffering some rather painful dislocations of both shoulders. I was found to have a malformation of both acromion processes.

The solution for this was reconstructive surgery, which lead to a period of two years rehabilitation (a year for each operation). It was during this period that I became interested in manual therapy and rehabilitation work. For more than 10 years I have worked in the world of rugby, and for seven years in the most prestigious all male and all female gyms in Barcelona. After which I opened my own consultancy for massage therapy and personal training.
