Chronic Back Pain

Amazing! Marcel really focused on where my pain was coming from and gave me some excellent advise! Have already booked to go back! Would highly recommend

Calf Muscle Tear

I endured a nasty calf tear and fortunately came across details for Marcel. From the moment my treatment began, I felt confident my recovery was going to be fine. Marcel is not only incredibly knowledgeable but also imparts his knowledge from the start and as the treatment is progressing ensuring a clear understanding of the injury and the importance of consistency in the healing process. I cannot thank Marcel enough. He would always be first choice for any future treatments given quality of treatment and client care ~Many Thanks

Chronic Back Pain

"I came to my first appointment with Marcel with some wariness around trying a new service, and negligible optimism about palpable results after just one session. However the sense of trust kicked in instinctively very soon after the consultation began. The consultation as a whole impressed me as more thorough, informed, intense and holistic in perspective than I had expected or experienced in most other medical/health appointments. (No one else has ever bothered to ask where my fibroid tumour is located at the back – not that I know the answer.)

By the end of the session I didn’t question continuing with the recommended course of treatment. This was further reinforced the following morning, as the (surprise) reduction in pain overnight spoke for itself."

Strength and Confidence

I started working with Marcel Salazar in July 2014 with a view to improving some muscular skeletal issues and improving my energy levels.  I have found Marcel to be knowledgable and professional. He takes a holistic approach and brings a variety of factors into the treatment plan.  He really cares about helping you reach your goals.  He often goes the extra mile in terms of encouragement or time given to his clients.  If he feels you will benefit from working with other practitioners he will make a recommendation or referral.  He is also great fun to work with and will lift your mood with his good humour and light hearted way, whilst still remaining professional.  I have seen some really good results and have no hesitation at all in highly recommending Marcel.

Maple Works

"Thanks especially to Marcel for being the pioneer and by far the most proactive member, well done Marcel! Its been a great collaboration with Marcel working here, not just because he is a positive, energetic guy, but because I have seen with my own eyes the benefits of Marcel's work with clients. They leave Maple Works after a session with a spring in their step; and what a great testimonial that is"

Fractured Ankle

"After breaking my ankle for the fourth time within the last 8 years I decided it was time to get some serious help and rehabilitation. Marcel was recommended to me and he prescribed an 8 week programme which involved deep tissue massage, exercises and a lot of helpful information and preventative action. As an active person who likes to run, I have found the information and guidance from Marcel has given me the confidence to pursue my fitness goals. Now that my ankle is better and healing, I feel I have the knowledge to prevent this type of sporting injury happening again. I look forward to working with Marcel over the next few weeks to ensure my running technique is correct to prevent further injury."

Bilateral Tennis Elbow

“I have had treatment at a Bupa hospital for the same condition for 3 months with no improvement. 6 Sessions with Marcel and I have been able to for the first time pick my daughter up with both hands”

Bilateral Arthritic Knees

"Thank you Marcel, for treating my arthritic knees, well what a difference three sessions has made for me and the exercises you have given me to strengthen my muscles I feel so much stronger."

Relaxation Massage

"I just received an excellent massage from Marcel Salazar at Strong for Life today. He treated my back pain (too much time spent at the laptop with a hunched back) by loosening up my neck, shoulder and back. I can already feel a substantial difference with greater range in my neck after just 30 minutes!"

Sciatic Irritation and Deep Tissue Treatment

"Dear Marcel, Thought you would like know how well your course of 4 treatments have turned out. My 84 year old back which is well worn has been giving me serious trouble for a long time and now it is much better than it has been for years. I feel quite confident it should remain so, provided I carry out the course of exercises you suggested and visit you on a fairly regular basis for "fine tuning." When I saw you last week I could hardly walk, today I managed a brisk one hour walk without feeling any pain, just a little discomfort. Thank you so much. Good wishes and I hope your new venture will be extremely successful."
