Derek Clarke

 

 

Hi my name is Derek and I am a fully certified Massage Therapist, specialising in Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage.
 
Being a former competitive swimmer, cyclist and motocross rider, I’ve been the recipient of hundreds of massages, which have helped me through many injuries, aches and pains, and most of all always kept me at the top of my game over the years. 
 
When I came to studying massage therapy I found myself already so familiar with many different techniques that gaining my certification felt like the next organic step.  In the past 3 years I’ve worked on athletes, yoga practitioners, sports-enthusiasts and anyone in need of some stress and tension release.
 
I incorporate different styles of massage to meet each individual’s needs; these might include deep tissue manipulation, trigger point therapy or myofascial release along with more traditional Swedish massage techniques. 
 
Why massage therapy?
For me that is simple.  I love helping people.   Having suffered with Chronic back pain myself I understand how debilitating pain or tension can be and it gives me a sense of professional satisfaction to know that I can help people relieve their discomfort.  When clients walk in for an appointment feeling not so great, but walk out feeling amazing, it’s the greatest thing!
