About  Lee Parnell

Experience

“I have been involved in sport and fitness throughout my whole life. I spent many years playing football and have also been a regular runner, competing in many races from 5k to Marathons. In truth, there are few sports I have not tried at one time or another. This is what first led me to a career as a Personal Trainer and then as a Sports Massage Therapist. I’m interested in how people move, what restrictions they have and how Injuries occur.

I trained at the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM) which is widely regarded as a leader in its field. I now help to tutor the next generation of Therapists at their recently launched Brighton venue.

I am passionate about all things health and fitness related so please feel free to contact me with any questions or to find out how I can help.”

Reviews

  • Lee is knowledgeable and easy to talk to but most importantly what he does is fix you how he says he will, there is no pressure to sign up for ten or so sessions after an expensive consultation, just good honest advice and treatment. Lee my calves love you!.”

    TobyPolicemen, Sussex
  • As a regular visitor to every kind of rehab professional since my early teens I tend to know instantly if I've found a "good one", and Lee certainly is. He is incredibly thorough and takes his time with diagnosing the problem without jumping to conclusions which is quite rare in my experience. He's also very intuitive and obviously passionate about what he does but the thing that I like most is his pragmatism - taking into account me as an individual, my circumstances and what is realistic to achieve the end goal. As a Beach Volleyball coach it's imperative I keep myself moving and Lee helps me do that and I gladly recommend him to any of my clients too.

  • Lee has solved so many problems that I kind of just pushed through for years thinking it was normal. I cannot even begin to explain the difference Lee has made to my mobility. I feel like I've gone from one extreme to the other! With Lee’s work it has influenced my weight training so much, being able to hit full range of movement with no pain! After a good 6 sessions, I cannot believe I am in maintenance phase with Lee and now see him on a regular basis to keep making these awesome improvements. Couldn't recommend him enough + his knowledge is superb

  • "Without doubt Lee is thoroughly professional and highly recommended. I saw Lee at a low point in my physical health and his treatment and advice worked wonders - headaches lifted, shoulder pain disappeared and no more debilitating cramp in my calves. Lee is enthusiastic and passionate about what he does and is committed to supporting his clients to be in the best shape possible to achieve their goals. "

    IreneHousing officer, Brighton
  • "Being a Sports Massage Therapist and Personal Trainer, I have had plenty of experience with other therapists - but I will always return to Lee if I suffer with further issues. He was especially good at aftercare and rehab, which was extremely important in my recovery."

    AlexaPersonal Trainer
  • "As an osteopath, it is important to have a range of top quality fellow professionals to refer to including soft tissue specialists. Lee is someone that I happily refer clients to and they always come back with glowing reviews and great results. Keep up the excellent work!"

    AdamOsteopath, Haywards Heath
  • "Lee's therapy enabled me to get through the Brighton Half Marathon and Brighton Marathon this year, both in very respectable times for my level of experience and age range. More importantly, after each event I did not suffer any pain or stiffness, so bravo and thanks to Lee."

    AnnieLegal Secretary, Hove
  • "Within just 3 treatments Lee has released a huge amount of tension in my upper body from an accident I had 6 years ago which has been an ongoing problem, it's been so nice to finally have something that helps. A big part of why I have treatments with Lee is because it helps to release the stress and tightness in my legs that I get from teaching group exercise and this in turn helps to prevent any injuries. Lee is extremely professional and really tailors every session to exactly what you need. He will work to get the results with minimal discomfort, and will give you tips on how to improve and gain results in between sessions. I could not recommend him more, and I now refer all my clients to him when they need treatments as he is by far one of the best around."

    MillieGroup Exercise Instructor & Personal Trainer
  • "I've already noticed a 50% reduction in knee pain after my first visit (yesterday). Thanks Lee for a very professional and thorough treatment. I will be back!"

    MichaelPersonal Trainer, Haywards Heath
  • "Lee is helping me to relieve my neck pain. Thanks to his therapy I've been able to keep working at the pace I want."

    PedroResearch Student, Sussex
  • "Made my muscles feel a million times better after a half marathon, highly recommended!"

    JamieMusician, Brighton
  • "Lee has been brilliant in helping me get in the best possible condition to cycle 1200 miles from Lands End to John O. Groats and thanks to his help I now feel fully confident I can go the distance! As a personal trainer I will happily recommend Lee to all my clients in the knowledge that he is extremely good at what he does and genuinely cares about giving the best possible service to every person he treats. Thanks Lee, I will definitely be back for more treatments after my cycle trip."

    HayleyCoach, Haywards Heath
  • "I highly recommend Lee. Not only has he released painful tension throughout my body within two treatments, he has enabled me to gain massive improvements in flexibility and range of movement. I look forward to seeing how far we can get with more treatments. Thanks Lee."

    RyanHealth Club Owner, Haywards Heath
  • "After 34 years of reasonably aggressive sports participation, it was only a matter of time before something went 'ping'. Lee's sessions gave me a greater understanding of the importance of regular muscular maintenance as well as the benefits of excellent sports massage. Top stuff."

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I see you for a treatment?

I work from the treatment room at Linear Health & Fitness in Borde Hill Gardens, Haywards Heath, RH16 1XP

How much does a treatment cost?

Your first 1 hour treatment which includes a full consultation and screening is £45 as are all further 45 minute treatments. If you have a localised problem that only requires a 30 minute appointment then the cost is £30

Are you insured?

Yes, I am fully insured as both a Therapist and a Personal Trainer.

What should I wear?

As you may be quite active during the treatment it’s a good idea to wear something you are comfortable in. For lower body treatments, sports shorts are ideal. For women, a modest rear fastening bra is a good idea. Try to avoid sports bras for any back, neck or shoulder problems as they restrict access to many muscles.

What can I expect at my first appointment?

I will go through a medical questionnaire with you to make sure it is appropriate to treat you. If you have any specific injuries I will ask some more detailed questions to ensure you receive the best possible treatment and aftercare advice. I will carry out a postural assessment so the treatment can be tailored to your individual needs.

Will it hurt?

No. Sports Massage has a reputation for being painful. However, if the therapist is properly trained in a range of effective techniques then there is no reason it should hurt. Sometimes it is necessary to work quite deeply or apply deep pressure but this should never be too painful.

How many sessions will I need?

It really does depend on the individual. Everyone is different and responds to treatment in different ways. Most people report an improvement after just one session, although it usually takes a couple more to make a lasting change. Once we are on top of any pain or discomfort we can discuss a maintenance plan to make sure it doesn’t return.

What qualifications do you have?

I studied with the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM). I hold a Level 5 BTEC Diploma in Sports Massage & Soft Tissue Therapy. I am also a qualified Personal Trainer and hold various other health and fitness related qualifications.

I’m pregnant, can you still treat me?

Please give me a call to discuss your requirements. If I am unable to treat you then I may be able to refer you to someone that can help.

Who are your governing bodies?

I am registered with both the Institute of Sports & Remedial Massage (ISRM) and the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS)

How long is the appointment?

All first appointments are 1 hour to allow for a full consultation and screening. Most follow up treatments are 45 minutes. 30 minute treatments are also available for localised treatment.

I have private health care, are your treatments covered by this?

Unfortunately not.

What can you treat?

My treatments can be effective on all types of muscle and joint pain. Regardless of whether they are sports related or not. If you are in pain or discomfort then please get in touch to see if I can help.
