At Woolpit Complementary, we offer Sports and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy to ensure that you are assessed correctly and thoroughly.
Sports Massage and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy
The ‘remedial’ in sports and remedial soft tissue therapy means applying manual therapy techniques to try to ‘remedy’ a problem with muscular aches and pains; to relieve pain and to prevent the problem reoccurring in the future. This doesn’t have to be due to a sporting injury. Following a thorough assessment, massage treatments are tailored to each individual to achieve the best results using a wide range of applications such as Muscle Energy Technique and Soft Tissue Release. A skilfully applied massage improves circulation and lymphatic flow and has a relaxing effect which should leave you feeling well and refreshed.
You can call us any time between 9am – 6pm Monday to Friday or 10am – 3pm each Saturday 01359 408 011
