About David Edward Holgate

I first began working in the fitness industry as an Advanced Personal Trainer and added to my CV by qualifying in Exercise Referral and also Weight Management for Obesity, Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome. I eventually became a manager of a new health club in southeast London.

My experience during my years as a trainer gave me an insight into problems people face when they begin exercise programs and when fitness and sports enthusiasts start to get older and accrue more injury.

Before I became a personal trainer I was the CEO of a car parts and accessory company and saw first hand how damaging work related stress is to our physical and mental health.

I switched from fitness instruction and studied first Swedish Massage and then Deep Tissue, followed by Sports Massage, with a few other certifications along the way to become a remedial massage therapist.

The benefits of massage are well known and I greatly enjoy meeting clients, talking over their problems and putting together a personally ,  tailored treatment programme for them. Alternatively if you simply want a relaxing, gentle massage to ease the stresses of the day away, that too can be arranged.
