“I decided to re-train as a sports & remedial massage practitioner after having a sports massage due to reoccurring injury and have never looked back.
After qualifying and setting up Silverstone Soft Tissue Therapy, I worked at Fulham Football Club, BodyBalance Physiotherapy, English Institute of Sport and Tass (Talented Athlete Scholarship scheme) working with many funded up and coming elite athletes from a wide range of sports. A highlight was working at the 2012 London Olympics & Paralympics. I have also provided pre and post treatment at the London Marathon and many regional events.
I have continued with my professional development, doing a wide range of courses, these include; pregnancy massage, advanced medical acupuncture, Kenisio Taping and ScarWork Therapy.”

“In addition to working in our own practice, I have worked very closely with organisations such as the English Institute of Sport & Tass and in particular working with elite squash players. I have a wide range of experience including managing massage teams at the last 8 London Marathons and in addition to this I have provided pre/post event treatments at many local events too; including the St Albans Half Marathon.
Like Karen the highlight of my working career to date was working at and being part of London 2012.
I was a board member and director of The Sports Massage Association (SMA), the industry leading professional body for almost 10 years.”
the treatment I received ensured that I could return to competition far sooner than I expected and their post injury treatment has reduced my change of future injuries.
"I have been seeing Nick and Karen for about the last 5 or more years for a sports massage, once if not twice a week. This has been a massive help as I play squash professionally so have many aches and pains after training and when I get back from tournaments. Its great to know I can see them for treatment and know that they are doing a great job in getting my body back in one piece ready for the next training session or tournament. Thanks Nick & Karen, I couldn't do it without you!"
Alison Waters (Squash Professional)
'I was introduced to Nick 3-4 years ago to get a nasty calf tear sorted out. Also a compressed frozen shoulder. The results were excellent, better than ever before and now I use him as my body mechanic for all sorts of aches and pains. He has fixed my back, neck and shoulder. Aside from that his experience and chat around his work during the Olympics, football and all sports interest is great fun."

"I had been suffering for a back problem affecting my leg for many years which got so bad driving or sitting for even just 10mins was excruciatingly painful. I had seen lots of Physios and osteopaths but nothing stopped the pain. Nicks treatment and guidance now allows me to be almost pain-free. I would highly recommend him."

"I was new to the area and was looking for a good sports massage and that is exactly what I got! What a great feeling. The massage was wonderful and great for my tired, overworked muscles. As a fitness instructor I really needed a deep tissue massage - I loved the time I spent with Karen - she was professional, caring and has the best hands - thanks for your help!"
KR - St Albans
"Both my wife and myself have benefited from treatment we have recently received from Karen Silverstone, alleviating the back pain resulting from a car accident and reducing the severe discomfort of knee pathology. She is considerate and capable and we are most happy to recommend her to people needing help"
