Back pain, Knee pain, Sore Neck, Plantar-fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Headache, Carpal Tunnel, Golfers Elbow, Tennis Elbow, Frozen Shoulder .
Remedial & Sports Massage Therapy is used in treatment of these painful or restrictive muscular conditions. These techniques may also be used in your rehabilitation post injury.

An extensive range of Remedial techniques may be used in your treatment. Trigger Point Therapy, Acupressure, Myofascial release, Soft Tissue Release, Muscle Energy Techniques, Medical Acupuncture (Dry Needling).
The information and findings gathered during your full consultation and assessment will determine appropriate techniques and treatment plan.. During the process, we’ll agree what a realistic ‘good’ would look like for you. For example, to tie your shoelaces without pain or return to sport.
“….I had been suffering from back pain over a period of approximately six months prior to receiving massage therapy from Shelagh. Initially, I tried to relieve the pain in a variety of different ways e.g. warm baths, hot water bottle, ibuprofen gel, tennis ball, sleeping on the floor, buying a mattress topper, replacing my mattress, and physiotherapy – but none of these interventions managed to improve my condition.
Out of desperation, I turned to massage…”
Dr S. McK
I treated my client using Remedial Massage. Firstly, I carried out a full consultation and assessment of the presenting condition. Based on a combination of these findings and my clients recovery goals, together we agreed a realistic treatment plan which consisted of a variety of different remedial massage techniques including myofascial release, soft tissue release, trigger point therapy and mobilisations.
With Remedial Massage, the primary objective in treatment is to reduce muscle spasm and relieve pain and the goal of the therapy was achieved, in this case, within 2 treatments.
“Two one-hour sessions a week apart has not only allowed me to wake up in the morning without pain, but I can rotate my body from side to side and it feels normal. I would not hesitate in recommending Shelagh’s massage therapy to anyone suffering with muscular pain.”
