What is Soft Tissue Therapy?

More than just sports massage, Soft Tissue Therapy is the assessment, treatment and management of soft tissue injury, pain and dysfunction. Soft Tissue Therapy treats the muscles, connective tissue/fascia, tendons, ligaments and joints. Whether caused through sport or any other lifestyle factor, the aim is to treat problematic areas by manipulating the soft tissue using massage and other advanced techniques. It also aims to identify the underlying causes of the injury and offer more long-term improvements in physical wellbeing and injury prevention.

During your treatment you can expect:

  • A detailed consultation and assessment to identify problematic¬†areas and more importantly identify what is causing them. Often the site where the pain is felt is not the point where the pain is caused
  • An individualised treatment plan aimed to address your needs
  • Post treatment you will be given advice and a detailed schedule of exercises to help you further address your needs and hopefully increase speed of recovery

What Soft Tissue Therapy can do for you:
  • Relieve muscular pain
  • Improve range of movement & flexibility
  • Break down scar tissue & adhesions
  • Help to improve posture
  • Identify causes of discomfort and assist in injury prevention
  • Speed up recovery from training
  • Early detection and prevention of possible injury
  • Optimise performance
  • Restore function post injury/surgery
  • Assist in correcting dysfunctional movement patterns

What a fantastic session. Simon helped me realise the imbalances in my hips and glutes which are causing both hip and quad tightness, as well as pain and extreme tightness in my neck and shoulders. In-depth session which didn't just treat the pain with massage, but also dealt with and analysed the causes of my problems in a way that was easy to understand for those who don't have a sports massage qualification! Would thoroughly recommend Simon. Real professional, knowledgeable and already seeing results after just a matter of hours!
