BENEFITS OF MASSAGE
Tom has been instrumental in my recovery from a repetitive calf injury. As as keen endurance athlete himself, he applied his passion for sport and understanding of anatomy to create a program that would suit my training. His follow up and after care is second to now. Would highly recommend to others.
Tom has always been a great physio for me, I recently had a long term back pain that I did not know the source. He checked me over and advised me what to do and within a couple months it has completely gone.
I’ve had multiple calf injuries due to level of exercise required to compete as a semi professional Ironman athlete. Specifically an injury picked up during a middle distance triathlon. Through using his specialist knowledge around triathlon, Tom used massage and showed me some great exercises to assist me back to competition.
I suffered a double break to my collarbone after a cycling accident. An 8 week recovery process proved to be only partially successful and I required surgery. Post surgery I spoke to Tom who recognised the importance of getting my mobility and strength back so I could get back on my bike. Tom provided me exercises to do, which helped to restore my range of mobility and importantly provided me with some strength that resolved the numbness I would feel on rides longer than 30 minutes.
Tom is a great professional who understands the passion we all have for sport and will have you up and running again in no time.
I HAVE TORN A MUSCLE WHEN RUNNING, WOULD MASSAGE BE BENEFICIAL?
Yes, massage is extremely beneficial after an injury such as a muscle tear. Alongside a structured rehabilitation program, massage can be used to assist with your pain levels and aid the healing process through improved blood flow and reduced tissue sensitivity.
I SUFFER FROM LOW BACK PAIN WHEN SAT AT MY DESK AT WORK, WOULD A MASSAGE BE USEFUL?
When long periods of time are spent at a desk it is very common to experience muscle pain and tightness in the lower back area. A massage can be very useful at reducing the tension in these areas and help reduce your pain levels. Following a massage you will feel a sense of relief as the pain and tension eases. Massage can be most effective when combined with a structured exercise program to improve muscle strength, increase movement and help reduce tension.
WOULD A MASSAGE HELP ME MANAGE STRESS AND MUSCLE TENSION?
Absolutely, massage is extremely useful for assisting stress and muscle tension. Massage has an effect on the muscle which helps relax the tissue, reduce the tension and subsequently assist with pain. Massage can also be very useful at managing stress due to the relaxing effect it can have on the muscle tissue and the body as a whole. The massage will help take your thoughts away from everyday stresses and allow your body and mind to relax.
I HAVE A WHIPLASH INJURY AFTER BEING INVOLVED IN A ROAD TRAFFIC COLLISION, COULD A MASSAGE HELP ME?
Massage can be extremely beneficial for neck and back pain following a road traffic collision. In the early stages following the accident the muscles become very protective of the spine and produce pain and tightness, as well as occasional muscle spasm. Alongside exercise and advice, massage can be a very useful tool to help reduce the tension in the muscle and improve the specific joints range of movement. This will then allow you to get back to your daily duties with less pain and physical restriction.
