Sports Massage Therapy
Anyone can benefit from sports massage therapy, including people in physically demanding jobs, those who work with a lot of repetition or spend most of their time in a sitting posture, as well as athletes, keep-fit enthusiasts and those who just like to exercise every now and then.
Sports massage therapy can be used as part of a rehabilitation programme from injury, to help decrease tension and pain (tension headaches for example), before or after a sporting event, or just for regular maintenance of muscle flexibility and range of motion in the joints.
It incorporates various massage techniques and can also involve deeper tissue work including muscle compressions, trigger point and deep friction work, depending on what the client has come in for.
Some of the benefits you can expect from Sports Massage Therapy:
- Increased levels of relaxation
- Increased range of motion and flexibility
- Reduction in muscle tension, pain and discomfort
- Reduction in soreness and stiffness after exercise
- Reduced recovery time after an injury
Swedish Massage Therapy
Swedish massage therapy is gentler than deep tissue massage – such as sports massage therapy – and aids in promoting relaxation through the release of tension in muscles.
It can also be a great energising massage, depending on the client's needs, and the techniques used by the therapist.
Some of the benefits you can expect from Swedish Massage Therapy:
- Increased levels of relaxation and decreased stress levels
- Stimulation to the nerve endings
- Increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage
- Increased sense of wellbeing
- Improved flexibility and posture

"Lizi gave me a very thorough massage, which dealt with the discomfort I was experiencing in my neck and shoulders. I was very impressed by the speed with which she located the problem areas and how they were resolved, all the time engaging in reassuring and pleasant conversation which helped me relax and enjoy the session." – Lindsey W.
"Liz did a fantastic job of releasing tension everywhere but spent a bit more time gently easing away any specific areas of tightness (including my calves!), providing a more bespoke massage rather than one that just ‘follows a sequence’. I can’t wait to book in again!" – Clare E.
"I can report that it was a truly blissful experience - Lizi has a very professional manner and yet combines this with working intuitively, sensitively and with confidence." – Beth J.
