To support any healing and/or soft tissue adaptations, follow-up appointments should usually take place within 7 days of your initial appointment. Hands-on physiotherapy can be intense at times so if deep tissue techniques are used, your body will require at least a few days in between to adapt. Typically our clients report a resolution to their problem within 4 – 5 sessions, however some longstanding and complex cases can take longer.
Even if you aren’t aware of any physical imbalances, our brand of mobile physiotherapy still has a lot to offer as it can influence a reduction in the harmful stress hormones that are released due to external factors that we encounter on a day-to-day basis. Because of this, it is advised that you continue your follow-up sessions about once every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain benefits and prevent a re-occurrence of the initial complaint.
Our brand of physiotherapy combines multiple techniques and is ideal to treat injuries, dealing with the health of muscle and connective tissue, range of movement, tone, symmetry, balance of muscle and quality of posture. Ultimately we treat you using a whole-body approach.
Sports Massage/Deep Tissue Massage
Sports massage is one of the most effective and readily available methods of hands-on treatment. Prevent and treat muscle injuries, pain and soreness heavily connected to incorrect posture.
Dry cupping involves applying cups to the skin which exert negative pressure on certain points of the body. This is a useful method of stretching fascia, breaking down scar tissue and encouraging healthy blood flow to areas of inflammation.

Can You Help Me?
This is a question we are often asked. Many people associate the term ‘sports massage’ with the treatment of athletes, and whilst we do treat athletes, you do not have to play sports at all to benefit from physiotherapy or sports massage, quite the opposite. Athletes and regular participants in sports have been using sports massage for years to supplement their fitness regime and maintain performance levels.
At the other end of the scale, an increasing number of people who live a more sedentary lifestyle have turned to sports & deep tissue massage therapy as an alternative or supplementary aid to traditional medicine as recommended by their GP.
To get the most from your therapy sessions you should clearly be able to define; what the problem is, what you think could potentially help the problem, what would be considered a successful resolution of the problem and what realistic time frame you would like to be functioning at your normal level again.
