Nev has been practicing massage and teaching yoga since 1997.
After taking a Humanities degree majoring in Indian philosophy and yoga Nev became interested in Eastern healing arts . He spent several years working in social care and mental health services whilst training in yoga and Thai massage .

Thai Massage and Sports and Remedial Massage.
Nev has been to Thailand a number of times to study advanced Thai massage on top of qualifications in the UK, and has studied Thai medical theory as it relates to massage . Thai massage can be applied in many different ways according to need as well as combined with reflexology.
He studied Sports and Remedial massage as a Soft Tissue Therapy BTEC level 5 to enhance his knowledge of injury care and soft tissue issue.
Thai massage and Sports/Remedial Massage are both very expansive treatment forms with many techniques and ideas of how to help people . In that way Nev feels that the two can be integrated very successfully at times as well as practiced separately.

''Nev's Thai massage is such a treat! I practiced Shiatsu for some years, and have received much bodywork over that time, becoming somewhat of a fussy individual! I found Nev's treatment wonderful, and his touch spot on. He certainly knows his stuff and I would recommend him to any of my friends.''
S W counselling student, ex Shiatsu practitioner.

"Nev's brand of Thai massage is vigorous, intelligent & sensitive. I feel energised but at peace at the same time after one of Nev’s massages.”

"I went on one Neville’s yoga holidays in Dalyan, Turkey with Free Spirit Travel. His subtly challenging approach to teaching the yoga asanas really worked for me as an over 50’s relative beginner. So great to practice in a relaxed spacious environment with fantastic food.”
