About

Piotr Piekarniak MSc
BTEC Level 5 Soft Tissue Therapist

Originally educated as a mechatronic engineer, spent 15 years designing complex, bespoke electromechanical systems for very demanding environments.

Following graduation from Oxford School of Sports Massage, I am combining my scientific, yet pragmatic approach with a passion for helping people make the most of their lives.

Depending on needs of my clients I apply general massage (GM) - superficial and deep tissue, Muscle Energy Techniques (MET), Soft Tissue Release (STR), Neuromuscular Techniques including Trigger Points (NMT, TP) and Fascial Release.

I am also a certified ScarWork therapist and can offer treatment of variety of post-operation, post-injury scars (such as C-section, mastectomy, knee joint replacement, burns and many more).

I am happy to work with amateur and professional sports people as well as people who have nothing to do with sports of any kind.


Testimonials

Piotr is a fantastic soft tissue massage therapist. He is really lovely and instantly put me at ease. His knowledge is superb and he has helped me significantly with relatively complex musculoskeletal issues. If he’s not 100% sure about something he will research the topic so he can offer you the best treatment possible. I would strongly recommend him.

Piotr is a great soft tissue therapist, he takes time and precision to provide a great service to his clients. He’s assessed my body + my lifestyle (sports, gym, etc) to provide a truly bespoke service. Couldn’t recommend him more highly!

It’s more than a massage, it’s a specialist treatment that assesses your body’s weaknesses and helps to improve your quality of life. Piotr gave me some invaluable advice on my lower back and neck problems. I fully appreciate his knowledge and advice and would recommend his services!

Piotr is a highly knowledgeable and wonderful massage therapist. I was lucky enough to be one of his first clients and from the start he put me at ease and taught me all about why my body is a complex mess of knots! I highly recommend using Body Links. As a rugby player I have had my fair share of sports massages and I can confidently say that Piotr is by far the best.

Piotr Piekarniak is a very skilful and knowledgeable soft tissue massage therapist. He’s wonderful to deal with and puts his skills as an engineer to work out just how to deal with a patient and their issues. He also has a very comfortable massage table. Highly recommended!
