Sports massage therapist
Sessions 1 hour – £40
I qualified in sports massage over ten years ago, but feel that the word ‘sports’ is not always helpful when considering what I do and it is definitely not only sports people who can benefit! Sports or deep tissue massage can release tight muscles, speed recovery from injury and surgery and maintain a balance within the body’s muscular system allowing it to work as freely as possible.
I was first drawn to sports massage therapy not through sport, but through seeing the huge benefits of deep tissue massage in increasing and maintaining range of movement for my daughter who has cerebral palsy.
Since qualifying, I have treated people with conditions ranging from sports injuries to physical disabilities, lower back pain to post-operative knee and hip problems, headaches to sciatica, aching shoulders and legs. I have worked on various high profile sporting events including the London Marathon and Deloitte ‘Ride Across Britain’ cycle ride. I fully understand the sports person’s need to quickly get back after injury but also get a big kick, professionally, from helping people cope with, and in many cases get rid of, chronic/on-going aches and pains that they thought they would have to live with forever.
