Our treatment room
At the studio we offer a range of treatments from sports massage, to physiotherapy. One of our therapists is available every day at the studio. All you need to do is let Amy know what time suits you, and we will do the rest.
Sports massage explained
A sports massage is a very effective type of massage to improve muscle, fascia and connective tissue health.
It uses firm-pressure designed to release tight layers of muscle and tissue, which usually develops from bad posture, injury or overuse. Restoring proper function in the deeper tissues alleviates pain, muscle spasm, assists in injury recovery and improves your overall health.
In general, a sports massage can play an important role in anyone’s physical life. It can help to relieve pain, improve physical performance, increase flexibility and reduce stress and the risk of injury.
More specifically, a sports massage can help with muscular pain, whiplash, sports and work injuries, alleviating muscle strains, repetitive strain injuries, increase range of motion and flexibility, nerve compression and sciatica.
