About Declan

Declan ClarkIn the twenty three years since I became involved with complementary therapy, there has never been a day when I have failed to be fascinated by how the body works. I hope to never lose that fascination.

I’m a massage therapist and Buteyko breathing practitioner. My aim is to find and provide the best natural therapy solution for you.  I work closely with experienced colleagues across a wide range of therapies. So whether through massage, breathing or by referral to another expert, your care and positive outcome is paramount.

In 1992, I co-founded Aromatherapy Incentives. Through this we pioneered taking therapies to the exhibition, conference and incentive industry. I travelled the country, combining the therapeutic qualities of essential oils with remedial massage, targeting a wide range of disorders amongst the beleaguered office-bound.

I taught anatomy and physiology, several types of massage and business studies at a renowned college in Surrey over sixteen years. In 2006 a colleague and I founded Inspire Massage Workshops. A company specialising in the highest quality professional development courses for therapists, with guest tutor workshops from some of the UK’s best known bodywork specialists.  Again, I travelled throughout the UK and abroad training college teachers and teaching therapists in spas and in 2009 led a study trip to Thailand.  I also present annually at Cam Expo, the UK’s premier therapy show.

I have written and run a variety of courses and workshops on subjects like posture and work-related stress for some blue chip companies such as British Airways and BT and also adult learning centres such as Guildford College and the YMCA.

Over the years I have worked with a range of start-up companies in the complementary therapy field and seeing therapists starting out and making their first success is a continuing interest for me. Importantly though, I am also a family man and I need to balance that with being a therapist to the core, so I treat people as and when I can, both in their homes and at clinics.

Currently I can be seen for treatments at The Surrey Centre for Natural Health in Chessington and for members, at Wentworth Spa in Virginia Water.  I still travel the UK speaking to groups about the links between breathing and better health.

I’m a member of the Buteyko Breathing Educators Association and Buteyko Professionals International.
