Hi from Zoltan Zavody

Zoltan Zavody Massage Therapist Level 5
Thank you for visiting my site.

I am a fully qualified Clinical Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist (Diploma, BTEC Level 5).  I am a member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage ( ISRM ), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council ( CNHC ), and the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine ( BAPAM ).  Amongst other places, you can also find me at the Perea Clinic , or on the move for Urban Massage .

The BTEC 5 Diploma is the professional qualification for Massage Therapists who treat and rehabilitate a variety of soft tissue conditions - as well as of course  offering a relaxing massage.  I continue to augment this training with ongoing specialist Continuous Professional Development, notably the Certificate in Advanced Myofascial Release, and some of the most progressive massage techniques available.

My interest in body mechanics arose from a range of hobbies, including sports and music.  These benefit from good posture, grounding, smoothness of motion, and whole-body integration.  And all can suffer if muscles are overused, causing injury, pain, and imbalance.  This why I am pleased to be a member of the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine,  who help meet the healthcare needs of artistic performers in a way that is already available to sports enthusiasts.

Through my own experience as well as those of clients, I see how people in need can go from one expert to another - orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, osteopaths, other complementary therapists - without resolution,  eventually giving up on an issue.  Both in the UK and over the course of a year in the Far East, I was surprised at the reluctance to offer specific, systematic, deep but sensitive soft tissue therapy to help resolve injuries.  I eventually found people who could help me, and I am inspired to study, practise, and build my experience in order to help others in a similar way.

Using an ever expanding range of professional massage techniques, I also draw on my ongoing practice of qi gong and nei gong flow techniques, studies in Systems Theory, and experience of martial arts and music - whatever it takes - all helping me to treat you as a whole, integrated person.

I look forward to meeting you.
