A range of massage treatments for sports injuries & injury recuperation together with relaxation.
Kinesiology taping is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique designed to aid the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.
It alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.
Swelling is better able to flow out of the area, taking with it toxins which result from inflammation and injury. Also there is less resistance to blood entering the area thus bringing more oxygen and nutrients vital for healing and recovery.
As pressure on the vertical layers of tissue between skin and bone is reduced, normal slide and glide mechanics between the layers of tissue is restored. Kinesiology taping is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric, and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.
If you require a deep tissue massage, or post event sports massage then I am more than happy to provide.
If you are looking for injury prevention or rehabilitation then only a BTEC Level 5 qualified Soft Tissue Therapist is trained to do that, which happens to be my main body of work!

Hot stone massage is a type of massage that involves the use of smooth, heated stones that the massage therapist uses in the palms of his or her hands to massage the body.
Some people find the warmth of the hot stones to be comforting and deeply relaxing.
The penetrating heat and weight of the stones are said warm and relax tense muscles so the therapist can work deeper, more quickly. However, hot stone massage is also suited to people who tend to feel chilly and for those who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage.
The heat relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to work the muscles using lighter pressure. Although there's a lack of research on the benefits of hot stone massage, the therapy is often used for the same conditions as a classic massage:
