Sports and Clinical Massage have become increasingly well recognised for their contribution to maintaining a healthy lifestyle as well as for the treatment of a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Many people are now turning to these forms of therapy to help counteract the effects of prolonged computer use, to address their muscle imbalances, to speed up their rehabilitation, or to help prevent an old injury from sabotaging their performance. For many users it has simply meant a life less compromised by crippling pain when carrying out their daily tasks.

Despite the name, Sports Massage is not solely targeted at athletes and sports enthusiasts. It is a specialised form of deep tissue massage used by individuals who may not necessarily be suffering with a specific injury or pathology but who may be experiencing frequent muscle aches and tension that can often occur as a result of poor posture or movement patterns pertaining to their occupation, hobby or sporting activity.

Some of the effects of Sports Massage include:

Whilst making full use of the tools and techniques available in Sports Massage, the practice of Clinical Massage is generally called upon in the event of a soft tissue injury or pathology. Here, carrying out relevant physical assessments along with a good understanding of human anatomy, physiology, and pathology is fundamental to the clinical decision-making required for knowing what, when, and how to apply massage therapy appropriately and safely. In accordance with the therapist's training, advanced massage techniques may be employed, such as Trigger Point Therapy and Myofascial Release, as well as special orthopaedic techniques such as Muscle Energy Technique and joint mobilisations.

Some of the conditions that I treat with Clinical Massage include:

My career as a massage therapist started back in 2004. Since then I have continued to develop and broaden my skills base, with a particular focus on biomechanics and exercise therapy.

I am a level 5 Sports Massage tutor and I deliver workshops in advanced massage skills.

Other massage therapies that I practise at the centre are Pregnancy Massage, Indian Head Massage, and Reflexology.
