Portrait of James Hurst, owner of BodyTherapy.Health providing massage therapy

I am based in Goudhurst and I'm a professional Level 5 Soft Tissue Therapist & Medical Acupuncturist with a passion for helping people. My main focus is to improve your body's soft tissue and correct functional imbalance and movement through fascia release.  Helping you move and feel better. 

I founded BodyTherapy.Health to bring you an innovative system of therapeutic techniques developed to address the body as a whole, rapidly eliminating pain, improving mobility, restoring impaired function, reducing recovery time & optimising your performance. All services are tailored to suit everyone, from new Mothers to Musicians and Athletes to Office Workers. 

With a background in professional dance and fitness, I've always been fascinated by the body and how it works.  After many years of working within the charity sector as an operations director, I felt it was time to get back to what I was passionate about - the body.  I was keen to continue giving back so I retrained as a Soft Tissue Therapist.
