About me

I am a qualified massage therapist and specialise in Deep Tissue, Sports Massage and Swedish Massage treatments.

Massage is such an effective way to keep your body in optimum condition.

We live such stressful lives, whether it be work or through exercise both can cause our muscles to become tight and tense causing many different conditions to develop. Massage is a great way to help revive those tired muscles.

Swedish Massage

Physical benefits

There are numerous physical benefits associated with the use of Swedish massage:

  • loosening tight muscles and stretching connective tissues

  • relieving cramps and muscle spasms and decreasing muscle fatigue

  • loosening joints and improving range of motion

  • increasing muscle strength

  • calming the nervous system

  • stimulating blood circulation

  • firming up muscle and skin tone

  • relieving symptoms of such disorders as arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic and acute pain syndromes, myofascial pain, headache and athletic injuries

  • speeds up healing from injury

  • improving lymphatic drainage of metabolic waste

Mental and emotional benefits

Mental benefits associated with massage therapy include the following:

  • mental relaxation

  • improvement in length and quality of sleep

  • relief of stress, depression, anxiety and irritability

  • increased ability to concentrate

  • improved sense of well-being

Deep Tissue & Sports Massage

Deep tissue massage is best for giving attention to certain painful, stiff trouble spots in your body. It is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Sports massage uses deep tissue massage and takes it one step further in using different techniques to stretch the muscle fibres to help improve muscle tone, elasticity and flexibility. Some feel the benefits of a deep tissue massage in minimizing lower back pain, releasing tension in a stiff neck, sore shoulders, upper back, or loosening tight muscles in their arms and legs.

If you feel tight and tense this massage is a must.

Testimonials


Kay V Testimonial:

I have been having treatment with Sam for about four weeks now and I am really seeing the benefits. After around 30 years of chronic back problems and various treatments, deep tissue massage is seeming to be the only thing that is giving me relief.Before treatment, my back and neck muscles were extremely tight making movement painful and causing tension headaches. It was also impossible to get a good nights sleep without waking constantly to change position. However, with 24 hours of treatment I had my first full nights sleep in ages and that alone was amazing! I find my back is much more relaxed and therefore less achy and painful. Also, since having my neck treated, I haven't had the horrendous tension headaches that I was getting. I can honestly say that the treatment is having a really positive impact on my whole general well being. Sam always works within my pain theshold. He is considerate and always respectful. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone.

Emma K Testimonial:

I booked in for a deep tissue massage with Sam, after regularly having back, neck and shoulder aches and pains at the end of the day and when sitting. These problems are significantly improved, after just a few sessions, and I will be booking in again in the future, when the use of my laptop takes it toll again! As a Chartered Physiotherapist I looked for someone with a recognised massage qualification such as Sam has. It was good to see his thorough and holistic pre-treatment health checklist, which considers the safety of the client, as well as enabling him to offer advice on healthier lifestyle choices.
Sam clearly has a detailed knowledge of his muscle anatomy and can identify problem areas with ease. He has a wide range of treatment techniques and excellent soft tissue skills, communicating with you throughout and making adjustments to the massage as necessary. I have confidently recommended him to friends and colleagues and will continue to do so. Great massage, thanks!


James T Testimonial:

'I had a deep tissue massage on my shoulders and arms from Sam recently and all I can say is I had no idea how much tension and stress had built up in my arms! Sam really worked hard to get rid of the tension, he really listened to my requirements especially on levels of massage pressure and where the areas needed extra work. I had 2 deep tissue massages from Sam and both times came away feeling so much more relaxed! It was definitely noticeable! If I had my way I would have this every day! Thanks Sam!'

Jamie B Testimonial:

I had 3 sports massage treatments with Sam after I had injured my calf muscle in my leg playing football. After the treatments I was back playing football again very quickly and I had no more problems with my calf muscles for the rest of the season which was very unusual for me. Sam really listened well to know the correct level of pressure that I could manage as the sports massage was being done.
Sam was also very helpful in advising me of some stretches which I feel helped speed up the healing process.
