One of Sussex’s best: Beachyhead Marathon

Maria Pali is a Sports and Clinical (Soft Tissue) Massage Therapist based in Brighton and Hove. She is a experienced distance runner and   cyclist.

Sports and Clinical Massage Therapists are highly trained deep tissue and soft tissue massage specialists who work primarily with soft tissues of the body. These include muscles, tendons, ligaments and most importantly fascia (a type of connective tissue which runs throughout the body)

As a professional offering Sports and Clinical Massage Therapy, Maria is  registered with The Sports Therapy Organisation and holds full professional insurance through Balens.

Maria began her journey as a therapist  in the 1990’s studying Shiatsu with Paul Lundberg at the Shiatsu College. She later trained in several holistic therapies giving her a  firm grounding, but really got hooked on massage for injury and pain relief after completing her first life changing marathon.

It was at that point that Maria trained as a Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist at the Wilbury School of Massage. She then went on to complete the Certificate in Advanced Clinical Massage at The Jing Massage School giving her many of the soft tissue skills she uses. She has never forgotten her roots as a therapist and Japanese techniques and holistic and energy work continue to have a profound influence on her work. Maria often combines East and Western techniques within a treatment with fantastic results.
