Steve identified and treated (with hot stones which feel amazing) the damaged muscles, which must have been under a lot of strain for some time, and also strapped up my leg with special tape which I found very helpful. Throughout the sports treatments Steve informs you as to what he is doing so you can understand your injury and why it could have occurred in the first place which helped me to better understand my body.
I was given various exercises to do independently after each treatment which enabled me to progress faster. I needed 4 treatments for a full recovery and to enjoy the Christmas dancing season. Hopefully sharing my experience of Steve’s treatments will encourage new clients to try his professional treatments. It worked for me and I thank Steve for all his support.
In the past summer holiday (2015), I have also been shadowing Steve and his clients with their permission. Not only is it great revision for my anatomy exams, but it is very interesting to see how the sessions are structured. I got to see how Steve diagnosed his clients’ injuries which I now realise is often a lot harder than it looks! The body is already a bit of maze and everyone will respond differently to a variety of treatments. Plus if you have any underlying qualities such as hypermobility (naturally over-stretchy muscles, tendons and ligaments), this can reduce the reliability of the certain tests carried out to see which muscles aren’t firing properly. One of Steve‘s main abilities is to keep the client comfortable and at ease as this can be quite a daunting situation – something which helped me a lot on my first meeting, as I was nervous mostly about seeing a male therapist on my own as a young girl. Talking to Steve, this is a problem he comes across a lot but, once there, all fears are put aside as he always puts the clients first and always tries to make the client comfortable even when working on the Psoas – and that is never really comfortable!
While I was shadowing, I saw some very interesting cases including clients with nerve damage, fascia problems, over-use issues, post-cancer patients, fascia hypermobility and severe hypo mobility (a lack of stretch in the muscles, tendons and ligaments). Many of these people, like me, had been thrown from one therapy to another with little success so it was nice to see that these situations do not discourage Steve and he really throws himself into dedicating a lot of time to getting them better. With some unusual cases or long-term problems/injuries, finding the root cause of the problem is not straightforward. Often the pain is not where the problem is. The body, over time, compensates for the original injury meaning that the pain could be felt in the back, for example, when actually the problem could be the jaw alignment – making diagnosing the root causes difficult.
I would thoroughly recommend going to see Steve if you have any pain whatsoever. The treatments can be tough and painful at times as deep muscles can be tricky to get to, but what you get back outweighs that 10-fold. Steve will, without fail, always listen to what you say and take that into consideration when treating you. Whether a long or short term problem, you will always be treated with the same level of importance. I cannot recommend him enough!

I visited my GP who diagnosed Plantor Fasciitis. Having read a bit on the Internet as we all do these days, I wasn’t convinced. So with some scepticism I visited Steve Guyatt, a sports massage specialist in Newbury. Quickly he realised that it wasn’t Plantor Fasciitis and diagnosed inflamed tendons in my foot, brought on by tight muscles that he could actually twang, in my calf. I won’t lie, some of the treatment was uncomfortable, but from a condition that seemed to be worsening, I experienced an immediate improvement after the first treatment and after the second treatment I am almost healed completely.
Thank you Steve.

Steve prioritized his approach to my needs and over the course of several treatments he has improved my mobility and pain levels to the point where I can now get relatively easy nights sleep. I have also very much valued our post treatment discussions where Steve has offered advice on stretching exercises and diet. His proactive approach has had a positive effect on my lifestyle.
Although Steve is based in his home this has never been as issue, I have always felt welcome and comfortable. At first I was also a bit concerned about having my treatments from a man, however, I found that Steve soon put me at my ease and respected my modesty. My problems were quite challenging and in the end I was appreciative of the physical efforts and hard work it took from Steve to treat me. I believe his own strength combined with appropriate techniques give him an advantage in this area.
He is particularly good at finding your sore spots leading to treatment that is sometimes quite painful but the benefits following are immeasurable. Steve has also proved that he is sensitive to his patient’s emotional state and tailors his treatment accordingly. I know this because I recently had an operation, my last treatment left me relaxed and ready to face that ordeal.

Steve uses a comprehensive range of traditional, modern and sports massage techniques tailored to your needs. Keeping within your individual comfort boundaries, he can massage deep into muscles to treat tissue damage properly.
After years of problems, my back and calves have never been in better shape!
Miriam Irish, Hampshire
He is patient and thorough. He takes his time and makes sure you get exactly what you need, even if you are not sure what that is. His professional attitude and cheery manner would make anyone feel relaxed so that the fullness of his range of techniques can be completely appreciated. He will find that one muscle knot that you never knew you had and will pick up on problems with an natural and educated ability.
If you don’t feel great after a session with Steve, I will eat my dance shoes!
Brigitte Baker, Hampshire
On every occasion, his professional and reassuring approach has been complemented by his instinctive abilities. He seems to intuitively feel his way around the body and possesses an amazing depth of anatomy and physiology knowledge. He is a true professional, conducting himself in a quiet, calm and confident manner.
Massage treatments are never rushed. He takes time to understand my muscular aches and pains, he listens well and communicates effectively by explaining how he’ll conduct the treatment.
I have numerous years of receiving massage treatments for both relaxation and healing purposes and have no hesitation in recommending Steve – he compares more than favourably with other therapists I’ve received massages from in the past.

Thanks Steve I’m delighted with the results!

Steve works in an unhurried way to ensure that you receive the best professional care. I have used therapists across the world and Steve ranks up there with the best of them. I have no hesitation in recommending his expert services.
He also has good taste in background music to help you relax.

Steve tries to accommodate appointments with my hours as a busy solicitor and I always feel de-stressed and physically so much better after a treatment’. I had no sciatic pain last night and felt much freer.
Thanks for your hard work yesterday.
See you soon. Laura

My body goes through a fair amount with the sports I’m involved with and seeing Steve means I can train hard with the confidence that when things start to cause me a problem Steve will be on hand to put it right!

I often have massage when on holiday or traveling. I have had expensive massage provided by masseurs in Russia, Mauritius, Italy, Spain, UK, China, India, etc. Disappointingly, some massages are light and little more than touch. A good masseur is quite rare, especially in the UK.
I consider that it is worth paying extra for the services of a good masseur. Steve provided a massage at a very competitive rate. When jiving the continuous movement and twisting can take its toll on an aging 59 year old’s body. Steve provided me with what I consider to be an excellent massage, probably far better than the service provided by most masseurs. He was knowledgeable and effective. After just 30 minutes I left the masseurs table totally free of aches and pains to my back. I just wished he lived nearby so that I could use him again.
