Hello, my name is Ben Neves,
I first started massaging after completing a Personal Trainer Diploma in 1999. Sports Massage is a natural progression to follow on from Personal Training and having relished the academic rigor of re-training after my service as a Police Officer and being fascinated with how the Human Body works and responds, I found Sports Massage fitted my thirst for knowledge admirably.

My time in each public service has served me well in life experience and human contact and it seems only fitting now that I have chosen a path and career which will help others.
After my studies I earned a VTCT Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy (York College) and the FA Diploma in the Treatment of Injury (Lilleshall) and have been attuned to Master Level in Reiki.
I am now a Member of the Society of Sports Therapists (MSST) and the International Council of Holistic Practitioners and Health and Fitness Sports Therapists.
I have my Clinic in Hull within a gym environment which is a great help in getting injured people and athletes back on the road to fitness. My training in Pilates and Injury Rehabilitation is an enormous benefit to my treatment portfolio; the two disciplines go well together. I also use Ultrasound, interferential and Functional Facilitated Taping.
FFT is by far one of the greatest treatment modalities for almost any injury (and best kept Secret) and is probably the easiest to use. My thanks to Ron Alexander the founder of FFT for introducing this fresh and effective method of treating injuries. Reiki is also a big part of my life now and it is given freely when asked for. It is truly an amazing energy which we all have and is underestimated and misunderstood by many.
I encourage all of my clients to change habits that are causing pain and stress and teach them easy methods to maintain the good work that is done during the treatment sessions.
