- Injury avoidance when competing or performing at your personal limits.

A sports massage approach is often used by athletes, but it is equally effective for non-sports people. Our patients tell us that they have been glad of our intervention.

Many people associate their debilitating conditions with increasing age. Often, they can be traced back to old injuries that were never treated correctly in early life. We have often seen a successful course of remedial massage surprise our older clients. The very welcome return of free movement and strength can be positively life changing.
Sports massage is often successful where other forms of treatment have failed. The results are usually immediate! Certainly within 3 sessions a big improvement will be seen when our skilful practitioners have been working with you. However, most patients feel a difference after 1 session.
