I have re-opened my practice and following PPE instructions.

A warm welcome to Structural Massage Edinburgh.

As a skilled physical therapist, I bring together a combination of styles and techniques to address your body’s individual needs.

I look for the reasons behind your symptoms, treating your body as a whole. I place particular emphasis on releasing postural restrictions, helping your body to recover from injuries and chronic conditions. I also consider the connected relationship between your bones, muscles, fascia (a type of soft connective tissue) and natural life energy.

I have just finished 5 years course to become an osteopath (I am before graduation) at London School of Osteopathy with Anglia Ruskin University. This learning greatly influences my work and style.

I have been practicing in Scotland since 2008. Please scroll down the page to get more information about me.

I am Maciek Leszczak, Mattie for short, a manual body therapist and massage therapist. Originally from Poland, I now live and work in Edinburgh, Scotland. I have been practicing since 2005 and continue to develop and add to my skills through advanced courses and study.  I graduated as a shiatsu practitioner in August 2012 after three years of study at the Shiatsu School in Edinburgh. This new qualification further complements my other ongoing work. I added Myofascial Release to my list of client treatments in 2010.

Additional experience and expertise:

I have been running an integrated soft tissue workshop at The Shiatsu School Edinburgh in 2012-2015, where I also helped out.

I was one of the sports massage team for the 2013 Tough Mudder Race in Edinburgh.
