Sarah is a fantastic sports masseuse. She did great work leading up to my 1st half marathon, adapting each appointment to treat the latest niggles. Sarah’s style is client-led and flexible, making sure you get the most out of each session. I cannot recommend her services strongly enough.
What is a Soft Tissue Therapy?
“Everyone needs therapy”. When you read that, did you automatically think of your brain or your body ? We bet you thought brain, but did you know the rest of your body probably needs it too?
Whilst your body is pretty good at repairing itself, it’s not perfect. What’s more problematic is that the older we get the less well our body’s can fix themselves. Niggling knees, shonky shoulders, busted backs and a whole range of aches and pains can start to affect your day-to-day activities but that doesn’t mean you should just “put up with it”. The good news is that we have a solution !
We use advanced hands-on techniques to manipulate your muscles, tendons & ligaments to help rehabilitate them. It can also have an affect on your nervous, immune, lymphatic and fascial (connective tissue that holds all your internal body bits in place) system. It can be used as a preventative treatment and help with injury recovery.
Our fully qualified therapists will give you an initial consultation & movement assessment to formulate your treatment plan. They will use a range of techniques from massage, soft tissue release (STR), Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM), Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and Myofascial Release (MFR) depending on what your body needs. Sounds sciency right? Just know it’ll make you feel good!
They will then re-assess to determine the effectiveness of the treatment and discuss any plans for future treatment if needed.
