Soft Tissue Therapy and Physical Therapy
Is your aim to:
- Manage back or hip problems?
- Recharge after having a baby and manage discomfort?
- Maintain your muscles and joints to enhance a more active lifestyle, no matter what your age?
- Recover from a muscle, tendon or ligament injury?
- Find relief from irritating plantar fasciitis?
Sports massage therapy and soft tissue therapy techniques – sometimes known as physical therapy – can help with these aims.
Please read my blog outlining the many techniques used for more in depth detail – just click on the blog button above.
There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that massage may be effective in helping to support people with certain chronic conditions, such as low back pain. In guidelines produced in 2009 by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), manual therapies –including massage –are recommended for the early management of persistent, non–specific low back pain.

I take a full history of your condition. If necessary, I work in consultation with your GP, surgeon, chiropractor or osteopath or a post natal specialist.
New mums: Please call for a chat about how one to one ‘me time’, posture assessment and self-care sessions by video call could help you relax and recharge in the comfort of your home. (Interruptions for baby care welcome!) If you don’t have time to travel for treatment, this option could work until baby is a little more independent.
Horse riders: Please call to chat about how to book socially-distanced ridden assessments for back problems, discomfort, forward head carriage or body asymmetry .
Soft Tissue Therapy should not be used in place of conventional medical care. Always consult your GP or a health professional for medical attention and advice.
