I have been suffering with chronic pain in my neck, lower back and hamstrings for over a year now. I have seen osteopaths and chiropractors with no improvement at all. Twelve months ago I saw a poster in Peak Fitness Advertising the services of Michael Sterling and with nothing to lose I decided to book an appointment. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Michael has worked on the areas that caused my pain as well as explaining to me how to prevent further problems. Following treatment my pain is much improved and I cannot thank Michael enough for giving me back my quality of life.

Our daughter had been suffering for several months with severe neck and shoulder pain making her withdrawn and very tearful.
Michael was recommended and prior to the appointment our daughter was very withdrawn and in pain. After 1 appointment she came out a ‘different’ girl and literally skipped down the street, her pain had been relieved immensely. Since then she hasn’t complained of pain in her neck and shoulder to any great extent so well done Michael.

I’ve been suffering with migrianes (cluster headaches) for twenty years. When i got a migraine it would last for two hours and all i could do was hide from light and sound. I would have them four times a day, somtimes lasting up to three month periods. I went to the doctor, to a physiotherapist, had crainial osteopathy and general massage. My journey ended when i met michael, who has cured my migrianes. Thank you very much…

As an international fighter I’ve experienced several therapies over the years to aid competition preparation and injury rehabilitation.
Michael took the time to fully understand the sorts of injuries that my sport can leave me with and spends time targeting the specific areas that are causing me trouble during treatments.
Since seeing him I’ve noticed a marked improvement in my mobility and my posture in general, which is very impressive after only a handful of sessions.
I would recommend Michael to anyone; he is incredibly knowledgeable, efficient and professional.

Emma Markwell - Martial Artist

“As a professional footballer for some years I have suffered – as is a common condition with many other players , from niggling hamstring pulls and tears.This occurs especially during the pre-season and with periodic massages I had found this alleviated the problem but not eradicated the precise cause.”

“On the advice of a friend, I made an appointment to see Mike (Sterling). After two sessions my problem was cured by both, treatment and a prescription of rehab exercise. He explained that fascia build-ups and when we hold tension to protect or assist with nerve transmission to a particular area, footballers tend to hold that tension in the abdomen (i.e. the psoas). This means that this muscle dominates the glutes and consequently, the lower back and the hamstrings have to work unnecessarily harder.”

“Mike has devised a series of techniques that address this very specific problem. His expertise, knowledge and hands-on-technique need greater exposure and I cannot thank him enough. I now feel sharper and more relaxed both pre and post competition. Many thanks Mike.”

Peter Sweeny - Bury FC

“As a former Olympic and International athlete for over 15years I obviously subjected myself to many sport-related injuries which over time, and increasing age, developed into ‘conditions’. Both, during those competitive years, and subsequently, many years after, I have had to seek treatment from numerous osteopaths, physiotherapists, sports-therapists and the like from all over the world.”

“Although I accept, that I have accelerated the wear and tear of my joints than most people and caused rapid degenerative changes throughout my body, most worrying of late, was that I was recommended that a hip-replacement was necessary.”

“I was fortunate to be recommended – (as a last resort), and to seek the services of Mike Sterling. I was both relieved to discover after several sessions that his expert hands and analysis proved that much of the pain and immobility was primarily due to poor blood-supply, large fascia build-up, scar tissue which as a consequence, caused obvious restrictions to movement and range of motion.”

“Being somewhat muscular I need deep-frictional massage to stimulate blood supply and break-up and separate tissue that neglect and abuse over the years had fused together. I am so grateful to Mike for his professionalism and it is because of his medical intervention that I am able to function as I am and NO operation is necessary which I attribute purely to Mike’s expertise.”
