What is Massage and Mobilisation?
And What Can It Do For me?
There are varying types of massage that I offer in the clinic. Remedial massage and Sports massage (which comes under the banner Massage and Mobilisation) are the most popular. Patients frequently ask for a massage to help with relaxation, for example, a neck and shoulder massage for office workers which are monthly maintenance appointments.
Sports massage utilises various techniques depending on your requirements. It could be Pre or post-event massage, whether you are a recreational or competitive athlete needing more vigorous deep tissue massage.
Remedial massage therapy is a very therapeutic form of massage. When muscles feel knotted, tense or damaged, remedial massage therapy offers a holistic method of healing using gentle, strong and deep or shallow movements. Remedial massage works to treat specific injuries or muscular dysfunction using a range of techniques to locate and facilitate repair to the damaged muscle, joint, tendon or ligament. This, in turn, will work to rebalance the body and contribute to optimal health.
Massage is reported to support patients with:
- Postural chronic pain
- Sports Injuries and pre-post event massages
- Stress and anxiety including headaches and general tension
- Muscle trauma and tendonitis conditions

Benefits of Massage and Mobilisation
What You Can Expect
Massage therapy is a popular treatment in sport and also among the general population. It focuses on treating soft tissue problems. Massage is commonly used to treat muscle tension and general aches and pains that typically arise from stress, injury, pain, poor posture or movement dysfunction.
Sports and remedial massage can be used before and after sport and as part of a routine to help you maintain performance by preventing increased training stresses developing into longer-term injuries. However, you don’t have to be a sportsperson to benefit from massage. I treat many individuals with, for example, physically demanding jobs or postural problems where this more intense treatment can deliver real benefit.
Sport and remedial massage can be used for the general relaxation of the musculoskeletal system as well as being directed into local problem areas, thereby reducing pain and improving recovery. Massage can help increase blood flow to the lymphatic system, improve circulation, relieve pain and aid relaxation to enable quicker recovery from injury and high training loads as well as preventing further injury.
