The Sports Massage Association define Soft Tissue Therapy (Sports Massage) as ‘The management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is applicable not just to sports people but to anybody wishing to guard against or recover from a soft tissue injury’.

For the athlete, our treatments can help enhance performance, improve mobility, assist with recovery, and prevent injury. However, you don’t need to be an athlete to reap the benefits of Sports Massage. Our treatments enable anyone and everyone to move more freely, improve posture, and relieve that persistent niggle that has been hampering your work or social life for months.

Before The Treatment

  1. Once you decide you would like a Sports Massage the next step is to contact me either by phone or email.

  2. If you would like to cancel an appointment you must provide at least 24 hours notice prior, otherwise you may be charged the full fee for the treatment.

  3. I will then ask you a few questions regarding the treatment and we will organise a suitable time and date.

  4. Once booked you will receive an email reminder the day before the treatment.

  5. Payment will be made after the treatment either by cash or card (unless pre-paid in advance via BACS).


During The Treatment

  1. The appointment time will include the setting up and putting away of equipment.

  2. It will be necessary for all clients to complete a consent form prior to any treatment.

  3. If the therapist notices any conditions the client has for which massage is contraindicated, they reserve the right to refuse to treat the client.

  4. The treatment will begin with an initial consultation to find out more about how we can help you.

  5. We will then take you through a full postural assessment including palpation of tissues and a series of movements and tests.

  6. After consultation and assessment we will begin the treatment where we will utilise a variety of techniques to help you feel and move better.

After The Treatment

  1. After the treatment it is not unusual to feel soreness in areas that were treated, depending on the type of treatment administered.

  2. You will be given specific home-care advice, such as rehabilitation exercises, nutritional advice, and advice for any pain relief.

  3. We will then discuss the future of your treatment and follow up sessions.
