Soft Tissue Therapy is a hands on approach to treatment to ultimately alleviate pain, increase range of motion and relax tense muscles. It is the therapy, management & rehabilitation of soft tissues of the human body (muscles, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue, Fascia & joints) to reduce pain and discomfort and to enhance an individual’s overall health and wellbeing.

Soft tissue therapists treat clients from all walks of life with musculoskeletal pain or dysfunction caused by any of life’s stresses. Our clients range from top sports athletes, performers, dancers, musicians, office workers, manual works, stressed individuals, minors and seniors, basically for anyone. Although sport or chronic pain and old injuries can be a common factor with many of our clients, this is far from being the main issue we deal with. We work alongside individuals and teams who want to prevent injuries and continue all their daily living activities whatever that may be.

The benefits of a regular massage can range from as simple as relaxation and stress relief to injury recovery. Whether it be a sporting injury or general discomfort in movement, our team of Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (ISRM) accredited soft tissue therapists have the highest level of training available in the UK from one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject – Mel Cash.
