Steve is the Founder and Managing Director of LW Health and the Lead Soft Tissue Specialist.
Qualifications: Level 3 Diploma Sports Therapy, Level 4 Diploma Sports and Remedial Massage, Level 5 BTEC Soft Tissue Therapy & Sports Injury Rehab, Level 5 BTEC in Clinical Sport & Remedial Massage, Level 1 & 2 in Kinesio Taping, Sports Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy, Cert. Osteopathic Spinal Manipulation, Cert. Medical Acupuncture and Diploma in Pregnancy Massage
Steve is the founder of LiveWell Health and is currently the driving force behind his highly qualified team of soft tissue and sports massage therapists. With over 7 years’ experience treating a whole range of musculoskeletal issues through advanced soft tissue techniques, Steve has built up an enviable reputation in the Midlands as one of the leading practitioners in his field. Steve has had what could be considered an unusual career path, initially working as a Marketing Consultant for a large FTSE 100 company and then running his own marketing company before working in the health and fitness industry.
This change in career came about because of his lifelong passion for fitness. Steve enjoyed training most days in the gym or running and as a result suffered from a number of injuries. After seeing several ‘so called’ specialists and physiotherapists with no clear or positive treatment plan he decided to retrain to understand the biomechanics of soft tissue strains that his body was going through and why general sports massage and physio treatments were not helping. In retraining he found a huge gap in the market for properly qualified professionals, realising that most sports massage therapists were actually just standard holistic massage therapists with no real understanding of injuries and how to effectively treat them. Steve started LiveWell Health to fill that gap and start a considered approach towards rehab and recovery of injuries no matter how big or small, with customers from the world of elite sport and the general public.
