Marcus is based at our Long Eaton clinic. Qualified for over 10 years with a SMA level 4. Marcus enjoys helping both sports and non sporting individuals.

Marcus is a highly qualified, versatile therapist and masseur with a decade of experience ranging from working in elite team sports environments to treating club-level sports people and members of the public.

He has an excellent sporting background as a nationally ranked Judo player, a discipline in which he has attained the rank of competitive black belt 3rd dan. His involvement in the sport taught him the importance of massage to aid injury prevention, as well as its benefits as an effective aid to performance and rehabilitation.

Between 2008 and 2011, Marcus was employed by Notts County Football Club as Head Sports Therapist and was a member of the first team staff during Notts’ League Two Championship winning 2009-10 season. His time managing the individual requirements of a squad of players through highly demanding football seasons gave him an insight into the psyche of professional sportspeople, as well as teaching him the importance of tailoring treatment to an individual’s needs.

Having worked at high profile events in the entertainment industry, Marcus is experienced at dealing with clients of all levels and needs. Performers have to be able to cope with the aches and pains of repetitive performance and relentless travel, and Marcus has worked with artists ranging from Iron Maiden and WWE Wrestling to Girls Aloud and the cast of ‘Chicago’!

Now working in private practice, Marcus gains a great deal of enjoyment from using his knowledge and skills to help other people, whether that’s by assisting their performance in competitive sport or helping them to cope with the stresses and strains of modern day life.
