What it is
Sports massage is the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity. It assists in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue caused by repetitive activity. Sports massage is designed to release tension, reduce pain and restore range of movement.
Sports massage is ideal to aid recovery from injury where muscle tension or spasm is a factor. It can also help to prevent injury, encouraging good muscle condition, balance and posture.
What to expect
Techniques used are a little more intense than in other forms of massage and include kneading, manipulation of muscles, joint mobilisation and stretching.

Meet our Therapists
Sport TherapistHaving played sport from a young age, I always dreamt of being a professional sportsman. Due to injury like many other professionals in the industry this was not possible, but my desire to stay involved in the sporting environment lead me to the profession of Sports Therapy.
Sport and Therapeutic Massage TherapistI absolutely love what I do, am inquisitive by nature and massage gives me purpose. I enjoy coming to work every day knowing that I am helping people have the best quality of life possible. Being Canadian I talk a bit funny, am very outgoing, andalways smiling!
Here’s What Our Clients Think of Us
For Karla (Hypnotherapist)
“I was here on 3-day work experience. The first day I was nervous but there was a ‘family atmosphere’ where everyone was really welcoming and made me feel comfortable. I enjoyed every minute and would love to come again.” Charlie Edwards
For Vicky (Vim and Vigour)
“I am now nearing the end of my second course of Vim and Vigour sessions. I must say, along with thoroughly enjoying myself I have noticed an improvement in my balance, core strength and flexibility over this period. My thanks go to Vicky who has focused the activities towards my particular needs and has also raised my awareness of how to combat the ageing issues my body is facing. Thank you.” Karen McDonald
For Jo (Physiotherapy)
“I have to say that in all my years, working and coaching, and being treated myself, that was one of the finest pieces of work I’ve ever witnessed. My daughter is a very complex, head strong young lady. I am truly in awe of the way Jo took on the mental and physical challenges in a way she could accept. Very grateful for all you’ve done”
“Over the last 2 years of rehab, I’ve done lots of different exercises, some extreme that have worked me hard. This is the only one that I’ve had to ask to stop mid-session to get a drink of water, that’s how hard it pushes you, do not underestimate this fantastic form of exercise.” Jerry Fowler
