Sports Massage

Anna Herbert, our in house Massage Therapist is now offering sports massage/ soft tissue therapy. Here she explains a bit about this type of massage:

What is it?

If you are looking to address a specific soft tissue injury (covers muscles, tendons, and ligaments) or release patterns of tension then this is the treatment for you. Unlike the name suggests, sports massage is NOT just for athletes and it doesn’t have to hurt, more importantly , it can benefit EVERYONE! Treatments are designed to take on a more thoughtful and personalised approach and are aimed at getting you moving again as pain-free as possible.

Sports Massage / Soft Tissue Therapy is beneficial before or after a sporting event. It can also be used as part of your regular wellness routine so you can keep doing the activities you enjoy.


– Reduce pain and inflammation

– Prevent injury

– Boost recovery

– Regain range of movement and increase flexibility

– Reduce physical and emotional stress

– Improve sleep

What to expect?

The treatment will start with a consultation about your goals for the session. This may mean that we focus on one or two particular problem areas.

A combination of advanced manual therapy techniques will be used to ease your symptoms. They include:

  • Swedish & Deep tissue massage
  • Myofascial release
  • Soft tissue manipulation, PIR/ PNF stretches
  • Neuromuscular techniques

Client feedback and communication is key so that we are always working within your pain tolerance and not beyond it!

If you are in need of total relaxation then the therapeutic massage is the one for you. Enjoy a restorative full-body treatment to help you unwind, improve your circulation and overall well-being.
