I'm a full time, dedicated, Level 5 Clinical Remedial and Sports Massage Therapist - this is one of the highest qualifications of this kind that is currently available, and this is all I do, so you're in safe hands! Because I don't do anything other than massage, I can focus 100% on providing the best possible treatment.
The better-trained clinical therapist will have a toolbox full of advanced treatment techniques which can successfully treat issues that standard sports massage cannot.
This kind of massage is also known as Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy. Sports massage has evolved... and it isn't just for sporting issues:
"Although sport is a common factor with many of our clients, this is far from being the only thing we deal with.
Our therapists mainly treat clients who have musculoskeletal injury, pain or dysfunction caused by any of life's stresses and from all sectors of the community."
