Sports Massage

Release and Relax

I specialise in massage for preganancy, postnatal and I also offer scar release work.

The whole process of childbirth from pregnancy to post birth is a huge strain on the body, particularly your abdomen, lower back and hips. Your upper back might also be sore if you are breastfeeding and not using a suitable position. Massage helps to increase the flow of blood and oxygen to your muscles, helps with posture and aids relaxation.

We all have scars, either externally or internally, and massage can help with both. Not to say massage can make either disappear but it can help make the scar less painful, and can help with any physical imbalances caused by the scar.

I use a variety of techniques including soft tissue release, muscle energy technique and trigger point therapy for you to get a treatment specific to your needs.

Treatment Information

In the first treatment which is 75 mins, we will spend some time discovering what your specific needs and aims are from the treatment, before creating a treatment plan that will address your individual issues. By combining my expertise in movement, exercise and sports massage, we will create an entirely bespoke treatment, along with a homecare prescription to help you make the most of your sports massage.

Benefits of Sports Massage

Massage helps rejuvenate and relax tired and painful muscles, focusing on releasing muscle tension, lengthening short muscles, rehabilitating muscles back to a comfortable state, and improving posture and alignment.

It promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance and helps prevent and recover from soft tissue injuries. Sports massage can reduce pain, discomfort and you will get the knowledge and exercises to help you continue to look after your body. I use a variety of techniques including soft tissue release, muscle energy technique and trigger point therapy.

Relieves Aches, Pains and Stress

Research has shown that massage has a relaxing and rejuvenating effect. A massage does not just relax your body, muscles and connective tissue, but it also relaxes your mind.

Improve Posture

Sport and Remedial massage techniques help to improve posture. You will be given rehabilitation exercises to compliment your treatments and strengthen weak areas.

Postnatal Recovery

The whole process of childbirth is a huge strain on the body, particularly your abdomen, lower back and hips. Your upper back might also be sore if you are breastfeeding and not using a suitable position. Massage helps to increase the flow of blood and oxygen to your muscles, helps with posture and aids relaxation.

Injury Prevention

Regular treatment can ease off tense and over/underused muscles to avoid the risk of injury.

Improve Range of Movement

By breaking down adhesion's, scar tissue and working on posture and movement, massage can improve range of movement, which will have a great benefit on every day life.

Aids Recovery

Massage helps speed up recovery of muscles by increasing the flow of blood and oxygen and draining muscle waste improving circulation.

Pre/Post Surgery

The improved blood flow, improved lymph drainage, and relaxed muscles help prepare the body for the trauma of surgery and some believe that post-surgical pain is lessened by massage.

Reduce Scarring

We all have scars, either externally or internally, and massage can help with both. Not to say massage can make either disappear but it can help make the scar less painful, and can help with any physical imbalances caused by the scar.

What do my clients say?

"I would highly recommend Charlotte for a sports massage. She is professional and knowledgeable with a warm and confident approach. Charlotte listened to me describe my aches and injuries and worked through them meticulously, but with a holistic approach to support my recovery fully, leaving me with a plan of strengthening exercises and stretches."

Joanna Le Vannais

"My massage with Charlotte was absolutely fab. I suffer with migraines and tension headaches and Charlotte’s massage made a really big difference to the tension in my neck and shoulders. It was so relaxing too."

Sanja Taylor

"I had a post-natal massage with Charlotte 9 months after my second baby and I wish I had done it years ago.  Charlotte is really knowledgeable about women's health and helped release tension in areas I didn't even realise you could get it!"
