Soft Tissue Massage Therapy (Sport Massage & Remedial Therapy)
Are you training for your next sports event or struggling with an old injury?
Do you feel inflexible and experience muscle tension and ache?
If so, you can benefit from a Sport & Remedial Massage treatment. Also known as Soft Tissue massage, this therapy is the assessment, treatment and management of muscle, fascia, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments injuries, pain and dysfunction.
Sports massage helps you to:
- Recover faster from your training and events
- Reduce muscular tension
- Treat aches and pains
- Eliminate soft tissue restrictions
- Prevent / rehabilitate injuries
- Address postural issues
By forming an integral part of your training, regular sports massage treatments can:
- Enhance your sports performance and keep you free from injuries
- Make you feel lighter and freer in your movement
- Give you that confidence and edge to enjoy your sport for many years to come
As part of the treatment we will explore areas of restriction / dysfunction, range of motion, proprioception and coordination testing, review of your stretches, warming up and cooling down routines, as well as advice on remedial exercises to help improve your performance.
What to expect at your first appointment:
Your first treatment will be at least 1 hour long. After discussing your concerns and a brief assessment, we will start with the sports massage treatment. The techniques I use are: Neuromuscular technique, Soft Tissue Massage Release, Muscle Energy technique, Myofascial Release, Acupressure and Trigger Points.
We will end the treatment by showing you a couple of stretches to take away with you so to help yourself at home.
Following appointments may be 1 hour or ½ hour long depending on the response to the previous treatment.

What clients have said following a sports & remedial massage treatment:
As a long time sufferer of lower back, tight shoulder and neck muscle discomfort finding a professional to treat and relieve the pressure with clinical sport and deep tissue massage was a great relief. Whether golfing, working at a computer or, heavy gardening, I found muscle tightness an issue. A three weekly visit to Felicia during the past four years has proved an enormous benefit leaving me less tense and more flexible. Long may my treatment continue which I recommend to all fellow sufferers.
I am surprised at the difference I can feel after the treatment - my legs are so much lighter and the hips feel looser. I like the fact that Felicia explains what muscles she is treating and why. I also feel very involved in the treatment process as we explore together new stretches or how to improve my technique
