Soft Tissue Therapy and Sports Massage Therapy
Soft Tissue Therapy is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is applicable not just to sports people but to anybody wishing to guard against or recover from a soft tissue injury.
Individually tailored treatment and advice (which may include stretching/strengthening exercises) aims to:
- help relieve the stress and tension which hinders the achievement of optimum performance,
- reduce the likelihood of injury during exercise,
- speed up the recovery process and aid rehabilitation after injury,
- ensure full range of joint movement and increase muscle flexibility,
- improve postural and general body awareness.
I have regular sports massage and see it as an integral part of my training…as important as all the other parts of my sporting lifestyle…I look forward to it because I know that I may have a few aches or slight strains that really need working on and will no longer be a worry after the massage.SB, Olympic triathlete

I want to let you know how much I appreciate your helping me with my back and always squeezing me into your busy schedule. You are really helping me…it does not go by unnoticed.AG, music arranger
When I was training for the Washington Marathon…it seemed to me then that my training was trying to tone me up at a greater rate than my muscles could absorb and I imagined I had come up against a sort of log jam…I came upon you by chance and asked if you could somehow help the benefits of the training to sink in. I doubt that made professional sense to you, but your ministrations certainly made sense and I valued them greatly.IM, businessman and marathon runner (the first, last and definitely only one!)
Thanks for all your help with the sore limbs…AP, distance runner
