Sports and Remedial Massage
What is Sports Massage and Remedial Massage?
Sports and Remedial Massage is a form of deep tissue massage covering the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body e.g. muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia. Most everyday injuries, aches and pains occur at work, home or in the participation of a sport. There are many contributing factors to muscular health problems, particularly the effects of stress.
Regular massages can effectively reduce stress levels, stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal and repair itself by boosting circulation and encouraging nutrients to reach injured tissues.
Despite it’s title, Sports Massage isn’t just for sports participants. It is beneficial for anyone wishing to relieve muscular soreness or tension.

Most sessions will last approximately 1 hour. However treatment duration’s can vary at the discretion of your therapist depending on the nature of the treatment to be performed. Your therapist will use her clinical judgement to decide when sufficient treatment has been performed into any given condition and will avoid ‘over-treatment’ where possible.
You may be recommended 30 min appointments if this is deemed more appropriate for your individual condition. Most new patients will be recommended a 1 hour treatment, as initial consultation will take place and this time will be needed to assess your individual needs the complexity of the case. Treatment duration’s for new patients will be discussed and agreed during booking.
