Mark Holmes is a Sports Therapist with 15 years experience working in elite sport – treating dancers, triathletes, body builders and has most recently been endorsed by the Monaco Yacht Club. His clients have predominantly been footballers in the premiere league; having worked with Blackburn Rovers, Sunderland AFC, England U21s, FA Officials and Real Madrid legends. Mark has constantly been pushed to be at the top of his field as part of a strong medical team.
Having travelled the world with his work, and always keen to learn, Mark has continued to develop by adopting new skills and techniques that ensure he stands out professionally. Treatments he offers include: sports massage, fascia release techniques, hot stone massage and cupping massage.
Mark has now decided to start a new chapter, concentrating full time on his clinics. Whilst his experience is predominantly with athletes, his treatments are for newcomers to sport, non-participants and everyone in between. His primary concern is to help reduce aches and pains as quickly as possible, and ensure all his clients are at their optimum level of fitness, regardless of age and ability.
