Sports Massage Cornwall

Sports Massage isn’t just for athletes, Sports Massage is for anyone suffering with muscular pain and tightness, immobility, postural defects or specific injuries.  Designed to break down collections of lactic acid, collagen and other by-products deposited in the muscular skeletal system, sports massage can promote a greater range of movement by loosening muscular tension to help reduce general aches and pains and help re-align postural defects.

The most common problems resolved by Sports Massage include lower back pain, hip and IT band issues, tight shoulders, headaches, tendonitis, tennis elbow and also sciatica. There really isn’t much Sports Massage can’t cure when delivered correctly.

After 8 years as a Sports Massage Therapist and over 15 years as a professional athlete I can honestly say that I feel confident to treat any client that walks through my door.  Analysing your body from a multitude of angles, I can generally ascertain where the injury or issue originated and what needs to be done to rectify it.

The site of the pain is rarely the actual problem. It’s usually an issue further up or down the body that’s causing the injury to occur or the pain to happen.  As an experienced athlete, personal trainer and therapist I have both the knowledge and diversity to help even the most complex of cases.

I was lucky enough to be trained by Lia Wheeler, an incredibly talented Level 5 Sports Massage Therapist who has people travelling from as far as Sweden to be treated by her. She now works in Bond Street, London.  This strong foundation has given me the deepest understanding of the human body, it’s bio-mechanics and it’s coping mechanisms for dealing with injuries and chronic pain.

If you’re suffering with any of the following please give me a call to discuss your symptoms and plan a comprehensive road to recovery.  Once we speak, if I am not entirely confident I can help you, I will refer you to a chiropractor, osteopath or other alternative therapist that I feel will be better suited to treat you.

Here are just some of the conditions that Sports Massage can help:
  • Sciatica.
  • Lower back pain.
  • Neck and shoulder pain or tightness.
  • Stress or tension stored in the body.

  • Knee and hip pain, IT band syndrome.

Vicky is a very accomplished massage therapist. Being an athlete herself, she has a great understanding of the toll that training and everyday life can have on the body. The approach Vicky takes is not merely mechanical, but holistic, making treatment educational which is important for long-term health. Vicky is professional yet friendly, making me feel relaxed and comfortable before, during and after treatment. I would highly recommend her to athletes and non-athletes alike.
