Mike Bell

Sports Massage Therapy & NLP Coaching/Therapy

As from 1st January 2018 I am delighted to join the North Lakes Clinic, Cockermouth specialising in both Sports/Remedial Massage and NLP Coaching/Therapy.

I have moved my business to Cumbria and bring with me some 17 years of success in both fields of expertise.

Qualified to Level 5 Sports and Remedial Massage, I bring a level of expertise in the integration of advanced massage skills including myofascial release, advanced stretching, muscle energy techniques, soft tissue release, trigger point therapy, and neuro-muscular techniques, NASM personal trainer, corrective exercise specialist, and performance enhancement specialist.

Sports massage can treat everyone of all ages and is applicable to all soft tissue related conditions. This has many applications, including muscular pain and/or injury (neck, shoulders, back, hips, knees), chronic discomfort and pain, rehabilitation, releasing tight muscles, muscular imbalances or recovery from training workouts. This can then relieve the pressures of stress and tension, improve circulation, improve muscular strength and balance, and facilitate greater functioning. Please see my Google reviews and recommendations

I have taught advanced massage workshops to experienced massage professionals, worked alongside and supported chiropractors, and provided pre/post massage support at sporting events.

Alongside this, my background in psychology, NLP, coaching, therapy and hypnotherapy offers my clients the therapeutic support to overcome problems, anxiety and addictive habits. My work can enable clients to cope more effectively with their life’s challenges.

A new year is often time to kick old habits which don’t serve you anymore, and create new behaviours which are more beneficial and sustainable. Typical examples include weight loss, stop smoking, addictions, emotional issues, and self-confidence.

The reason why my work is so successful is because my approach is integrative and I bring to you my experience, skills, and learnings in supporting positive change. As a Master Practitioner in several fields, this combines my understanding of NLP, Coaching, Hypnotherapy, and Neuroscience.  I am currently studying a Masters at Chester University in weight management.

Most clients only need between 1 and 3 sessions with me. Those who require ongoing coaching and development arrange sessions over a longer period of time.

Appointments can be made through the North Lakes Clinic on 01900 821122, or talk to me directly on mobile 07754 937341, or email
