Sports Massage
Sports massage can benefit everyone and involves intensive soft tissue therapy. It can stimulate healing and boost flexibility, providing relief from a range of issues including musculoskeletal injury, musculoskeletal pain, repetitive strain injury, pain, stiffness, fatigue, and stress. For amateur or professional athletes aiming for maximum performance, sports massage can help with injury prevention and recovery, training and conditioning, pre-competition preparation, post-competition wind-down, and post-travel flexibility.

Deep Tissue Massage
Our Hands That Heal team are highly skilled in manual therapy and massage therapy. When you contact us with a physical issue, we will first thoroughly assess you to understand your symptoms and likely causes. If we then believe massage therapy can help you as part of a holistic treatment and exercise plan, we will explain exactly what form your massage will take and what you can expect before, during and after your treatment. Massage is a very powerful therapy which can help with many physical and emotional problems. It can relieve joint pain and joint stiffness in different areas of your body and provide relief from stress and anxiety issues which, in turn, impact on your physical health and ability to live life to the full. It is therefore among the techniques most often offered by physiotherapists.

Joint Mobilisation
Joint mobilisation therapy can help treat stiff and painful joints resulting from immobility following injury or illness. It uses targeted physiotherapy exercises to gently free up joints and improve freedom of movement. We use it to provide relief from conditions such as adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder, elbow stiffness, hand stiffness, wrist stiffnes and lower back pain.
