Bedford’s Massage Cabin
Specialising in the treatment of aches, pains, and sporting injuries, as well as massages to de-stress, unwind, and relax.
Hello, my name is Martin and welcome to the Massage Cabin in Oakley, Bedford. Here, I aim to provide you with a comfortable and relaxing environment where I can ease your aches and pains. As you can see from the images this is the perfect setting to do this – I have kept the wood bare and hangings minimal which really gives it a warm and cosy glow – most people are surprised by just how relaxing it is.
I call my type of massage Massage for All because I aim to treat people from every walk of life. Many of the people who visit me have had an ache or pain of some sort for years. It could be lower back or neck pain, caused by a variety of situations such as: stress, computer work, sleeping awkwardly, sports or a fall. That’s why when you come to the Massage Cabin for the first time I will do a full assessment and really get to know you and try to find out how this problem first arose so I can find the best way to treat it effectively – often the problem is not the muscle that hurts but the muscles surrounding it.
Many active people, who do a variety of sports (from running, martial arts, swimming, to golf) come here too. This can be for a massage to keep muscles working optimally by relaxing them and getting rid of knots or for an injury or niggle which is just not going away. Either way the process is the same and a full assessment will determine your needs.
By far the best reason to come and see me is prevention. You know your mother told you that ‘prevention is better than a cure’? – It’s the same with muscles, keep them relaxed and toned and you are less likely to develop long term problems or injuries. For example, if you sit in a chair all day then you will likely experience upper back and neck pain or lower back and hip pain. This will gradually get worse and gradually change your posture. A massage can release the tension to help you keep your body upright and moving optimally and freely. Or maybe you just have a busy life, deserve a massage and want to treat yourself. Well, that’s fine too!
So, whether you need a massage now or in the future please feel free to get in touch with me and discuss your needs – I’ve even helped everyday athletes set new Personal Bests! If you want to know how then get in touch.
I’ve been a runner for 27 years and it’s very hard to find a good sports therapist. Right from the off Martin filled me with confidence on his ability to understand what I needed and not jump to any conclusions. Very professional and sports massage left my legs feeling refreshed.
Thank you Martin, see you soon for the next massage.
Had an appointment with Martin this evening. I have had a problem with my left leg for months when exercising. During the consultation, he took the time to understand and investigate where the problem was and to look for causes behind it. He recommended some self treatment to help with the problem before expertly working on the affected areas identifying particular spots for extra work.
I have visited a few sports massage therapists now and have found the intial consultation with Martin the most worthwhile. I am so satisfied I have already booked my next session.
I visited Martin after having some back pain brought on by overtraining and he’s really helped me. His therapy room is calming and comfortable and Martin really puts you at ease, explaining what he plans to do at every step. The massage I had has really helped my mobility and I plan to return regularly to get maximum benefits. He offers flexible appointment times with availability in the evenings, and being able to book appointments on Facebook and by text is really convenient. Highly recommended.
Martin is professional and knowledgable, I would highly recommend him. He has listened carefully which has resulted in great progress in just 3 sessions. thank you!
I have visited Martin 4 or 5 times now , with an on going back problem. prior to this I had wasted over £500 On a chiropractor!!!! After just a few visits my problem area had improved greatly with the impressive massage that he does combined with an easy to follow stretching exercises plan I am almost pain free again !!!! thank you Martin, i would recommend you to anyone 👍
Martin is brilliant, he is very professional and personable. His massages are great and sorted out a few running injuries enabling me to do my marathon pain free
Highly recommend Martin Preece for all your massage needs. This guy is cool calm and professional. Will definitely be returning.
l have and am still going to see Martin at Actuve Life Therapy and Fitness. for deep tissue massage . l would recommend anyone to go and consult Martin concerning any back issue as l have found Martin to be very understanding and motivated to resolve these back issues . l have found Martin to be fully present and give his full attention. l am very happy with his dedication to getting to the root of the back pain l am dealing with. The massage cabin is very cosy and warm . l feel very at ease . Martin is very professional but very approachable. Many thanks to Martun for his continued commitment in helping me.
From start to finish Martin was welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. Took the time to find out all the issues before detailing what he would be doing before a very thorough massage, even going over out time by 10 minutes just to make sure I got the full benefit. Booked then and there to go back next week. Would happily recommend to all. Thank you Martin.

Had an excellent first massage with Martin after having pain in shoulders and back for a couple of years. He was very knowledgable and gave me some advice on how I can help myself at home too with various exercices. Got my next session booked with him already. Would highly recommended.
I;ve just had my first appointment, Martin could feel where the problem with my knee pain was & explained what it was. I;ve made a follow up appointment.
I have a long history of lower back problems and Martin was fantastic. Very knowledgable, identified the problem area very quickly and my back feels so much better. I’m an avid gym goer so he’s given me advice on exercises to help reduce my back pain and strengthen my glutes and core. I’ve already scheduled my next appointment! 100% recommend!!
I had my first deep tissue massage with Martin today and can highly recommend him. Such a lovely cozy cabin, very private and warm. After a short chat a lovely massage which has got rid of all my aches leaving me very relaxed. I've booked my next session already. Thank you Martin.
I can highly recommend Martin for sports / deep tissue massage. I had one of these today and it was amazing, all my knots and niggles are gone! He is very knowledgeable and the Massage Cabin is very cosy. Very impressed and already have my next session booked in
Really cant recommend Martin enough! So glad i decided to try someone new, already booked my next massage!! Perfect location and felt very welcomed and relaxed
I had a deep tissue massage and from the very beginning Martin made me feel at ease and very confident in his abilities! He was knowledgeable and genuinely took the time to get to know any problem areas or any pain that I was having. The room was quiet and relaxing and I felt comfortable and the massage was great. I came away feeling much better and very relaxed with some tips about how to ease pain and also I booked in for another session! I would highly recommend!
After trying a lot of different options to help sort my should and back pains. I thought I’d try and see if Martin could help. I’m so glad I had a sports massage with him. He knew exactly what he was doing and how he could help! I was very sceptical at first after never trying it before. There was a lot of tension in my shoulders and neck which Martin managed to get rid of completely in my right shoulder!! Even to his surprise. I would thoroughly recommend Martin and if you’re sceptical like I was, honestly give it a go!! Thank you so much and will be going back in a couple of weeks.
I took adventage of the discounted orice of a deeo tissue massage that Martin was offering & am so pleased I did! I would highly recommend him, he knows his stuff! my shoulders feel great! will definitely be returning on a regular basis.
