WHY SPORTS MASSAGE?
Sports massage is the manipulation of soft tissues, including muscles, tendons and ligaments, to help reduce pain, tension and assist in the rehabilitation and prevention of injuries. It aids in correcting imbalances in soft tissue caused by repetitive and strenuous physical activity.
Whilst it is often used to help athletes and active sportspeople to perform at their best, it’s also beneficial for those who experience discomfort and tension in their bodies due to everyday stresses.
Tightness, aches and pains can develop from repetitive postures in any working environment or lifestyle.
So whether you’re looking to improve post-exercise healing or would like to relieve the strains of modern life, I’m here to help.

As a dancer on a busy performance schedule, I needed a reliable practice to aid my muscle recovery and prevent ongoing 'niggles'. Not only did I find Stephanie's treatment eliminated fatigue, but I also came out of her sessions feeling mentally revitalised. Her calm and warming presence put my mind at ease and prepared me for another week of demanding shows. I would highly recommend!
