Michel Revivo has lent his expertise to a number of fields over a multi-faceted career spanning almost 40 years. This has taken Mich from his home in the northern-most tip of Israel to Southend on Sea, which has been home since 1989. He was born in Morocco in 1959, and raised in Kiryat Shmona, Israel.
Originally a massage therapist, he gained his massage qualifications in 1987. In 2015, he added CranioSacral Therapy to his holistic repertoire. CST is a method developed by John Upledger in the 1970s. To find out more click here
The centre-piece of Mich’s work is his half-and-half treatments. Which incorporates both Cranial and massage work. The balance of the two creates a deeply therapeutic session, the effects of which can be felt for days and even weeks after treatment.
CranioSacral Therapy joins the list of careers that Michel has thrown his time and enthusiasm into. These include running a popular café in Westcliff, and working as a lifeguard, all while moonlighting as a musician.
It is his musicianship that truly identifies Michel, a talented, proficient bassist, and a top class drummer. Able to work confidently within any genre, Jazz is that truly inspires him, taking inspiration from the likes of Buddy Rich and Dave Weckl. The latter of the two is somewhat of an idol. He is a member of two separate bands, as the drummer of the Mickey Welton Band, he has played for audiences all over the Essex pub scene.
When he’s not working, performing or travelling between the two, Michel finds hobbies in his daily life. Currently operating several DIY projects throughout his home, he finds tranquillity in these moments of home improvement. And although his children (aged 23 and 21) have both left home, fatherhood is not something he has managed to elude just yet, as he is an owner to one-year old dog, Lila. Lila, a labradoodle-staffie mix, provides more than enough entertainment, and too much mischief.
