A Soft Tissue Therapist by day, an ultra runner when he can and a human trampoline for his two toddlers the rest of the time, Matt loves a decent massage! After a BSc in Natural Sciences and 10 years in corporate business Matt started his original Soft Tissue Therapy training in 2017 following his “mental breakthrough” and subsequent mental health journey.
Matt quickly realised that progression was sorely needed in the education and teaching of manual techniques in MSK care, especially when it came to treating painful conditions. A scientist and nerd at heart, Matt loves to geek-out and translate the high level research into clinically useful information for therapists at all levels.
For Matt, an MSc in Cognitive & Clinical Neuroscience reinforced the need for therapists to genuinely understand what is happening under their hands and that “treatment” is far more than simply the modality we use. Matt truly believes that evidence-informed approaches should be taught right from the start of a therapists journey into practice, where complexity can be layered onto solid basic principles.
