Sports Massage & Soft Tissue Therapy

Although it is commonly known as “Sports Massage”, it could be argued that just as appropriate a title would be “Remedial Massage Therapy”, and it is more commonly called simply “Soft Tissue Therapy” nowadays.

This simply means using manual therapy techniques to try to remedy a problem, regardless of your sporting activity, or lack of it! To offer a remedy you must do more than just relieve the symptom, you must also be able to understand how the problem came about in order to stop it happening again in the future.

To achieve this, I offer a range of advanced soft tissue techniques – including but not limited to Muscle Energy Techniques, Soft Tissue Release, Sports Massage, Dry Needling (closely associated to Medical Acupuncture), Osteopathic Articulations- coupled with essential rehabilitation procedures and advice.

As well as helping ease symptom’s of a range of musculoskeletal problems, Soft Tissue Therapy can also play an important role in a an athlete’s training schedule, and many people use Sports Massage as an essential tool in their training, ensuring they maintain healthy bodies, and reducing needless injury.

Contrary to common belief, Sports Massage does not have to hurt to be effective. Whilst working on a problematic area may certainly cause some discomfort, it shouldn’t leave bruising or cause you to leap off the table!

Sports Massage can help with symptoms of;

  • Muscular aches and pains
  • Neck and back pain
  • Symptoms of Sciatica
  • “Frozen” Shoulders
  • “Impingement” symptoms
  • Shin pain
  • Sprained ankles
  • Sports related injuries
  • Post-operative care, such as knee or hip replacement
