Sports Massage & Soft Tissue Therapy

Client receiving massage therapy in Mold

Sports massage is a lot more than the usual rub down after a sports session. Sports massage alleviates stress & tension which can build up in the body’s muscles and soft tissues because of day to day activities and taking part in sport.

Our massage therapists treat a variety of medical issues and complaints aimed at providing you with relief by reducing tightness and improving soft tissue condition. Enabling you to move your body more freely.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that only sports people benefit from our therapies. We all put different demands on our bodies whether we are office workers, manual workers, engage in sports or are pregnant.

There are many medical conditions which benefit from massage treatment including:

Sports massage treatment focuses as much on prevention as it does on cure. Most people would benefit from a sports and remedial massage at least once a month. Regular session can enable monitoring of any negative changes in the soft tissue & to counteract this situation using advanced techniques of body massage and soft tissue therapy.

Soft Tissue Therapy

Soft Tissue Therapy takes treatment one step further and is often integrated into massage sessions as it enables a therapist to undertake further hands-on techniques on your muscles, ligaments and fascia to effectively treat a wider range of physical injury problems with people of all ages and from all walks of life.

Soft Tissue Therapy can enable a therapist to relieve many painful conditions. They assess your movements to determine where you have restrictions and pain. They will then undertake the therapy using the best techniques in their toolbox to ensure maximum effectiveness from the session.

There is an overlap with techniques used in massage therapy but luckily you don’t need to know which type of treatment you need, just book a session and the therapist will determine which techniques will be most effective for you. Often they will use a combination of massage and soft tissue to enable you to maximise the benefit you gain from your treatment.

How will I feel after a treatment?

The body should feel pleasantly relaxed and more supple. There may be some tenderness in places if deep work has occurred. The next morning stiffness may occur and more tenderness can result over a 24 - 48-hour period. This is a natural response to deep massage and tissue work as tissues remodel & start to repair. In most cases if the injury or tension was mild no side effects will occur.

Mild headaches can affect some individuals if very sensitive to changes in the body. This is due an increase in waste levels being excreted into the blood system. It’s usually a good idea to drink more water to flush the system out & take a good brisk walk in the fresh air. We recommend treatment lengths of no longer than 60 minutes due to the intensity of the treatment.


As a Personal Trainer, regular runner and cyclist Nicky has been treating me for a number of years. I rely on her sports massage to keep me and my legs in good shape and free from injury. I would really recommend the Thai massage too which is a completely different energising experience - I feel brilliant afterwards

I am suffering from a chronic condition known as stenosis of the spine which is very restricting and causes a great deal of pain. Nicky has been treating me for over two years and I can only say what her treatment does for me is just wonderful. Nicky is very caring and most professional in her procedures. The after effects of her treatment give me more pain free movement in my limbs and a wonderful relaxed state of wellbeing
Jim Porter, Wrexham massage patient

When I arrived my legs were very swollen due to water retention, my ankles and knees were painful and my left leg in particular was very heavy. But since the two massages and following your advice my agility is markedly improved. I feel I am able to walk much better and for longer. I am more confident in moving up and down steps and my knees no longer feel so painful. I am really pleased at the effect of the treatment
