I am writing this email to recognise all your team. I had a regular sports massage visit today with Will. As always the personal interaction with reception, in this case, Jade, was exceptional. Always welcoming and reassuring. Today as I have for a number of occasions now, I was been treated by Will. His professionalism and understanding were of a high standard as always. For such a young person (they are all young to me!!) I have always been impressed by his attitude and caring approach. I appreciate you have all had challenges during this past year, but to see how upbeat the staﬀ have been throughout is a credit to you all.
How does massage & Soft Tissue Therapy help?
It is perfect if you have generalised or specific areas of tension, that may have built up over time. It can also be a great way to boost performance and help recovery if you are training for or recovering from an event.
What does Shockwave Therapy involve?
Each session will be tailored to your individual needs and goals, but as a guide your first session will be 45 minutes including a full injury assessment, diagnosis and your first SWT treatment. We incorporate shockwave treatment alongside our other treatments at no extra charge.
What will happen during a SWT treatment?
The overall treatment will last between 15 – 20 minutes, during which we’ll also give you injury advice and exercises to further help your recovery.
It is recommended that you have one SWT session a week. A total of 3-4 sessions is normally needed for mild cases, 6 or more may be needed for longer-term, more severe injuries.
Feedback from other patients who’ve had SWT is that the treatment feels very specific to the problem area i.e. “it’s right on it”, “it’s getting right to it”, “I can feel it doing its job”. Following the SWT treatment session, there can be an ongoing sensation of healing between treatments. This is perfectly normal.
