Martin Rouen Dip OA MAcS Tac (Dip) LSSM MISRM MBA

Soft Tissue Therapy, Sports Massage, Pain Reduction, Orthopaedic Acupuncture

My interest in biomechanics and physical therapy originates from being a Physical Training Instructor (PTI) in the Army in the early nineties.


An interest in Tai Chi led to my exploration of further studies, including studying acupuncture at the College of Chinese Medicine.  I was lucky enough to have studied under Mel Cash at the London School of Sport and Remedial Massage, and was awarded my ISRM/BTEC (level 5) Professional Diploma in Clinical Sport & Remedial Therapy. I provide acupuncture combined with more Western-based treatments, such as trigger point therapy, myofascial release and various muscle energy techniques to help you live pain free.

I don’t charge according to the treatments, but prefer to charge according to the length of time the treatment lasts. You don’t have to be an elite athlete to benefit from my treatments, however it is true that properly prepared sports people will perform to a far higher standard, and benefit from post-event therapy, significantly speeding up their recovery time.

Treatments - * times are approximate
  • 1hr - £40
  • 45 mins - £30
  • Monday 9:00am -7:00pm
