6 reasons to choose RESTORE Sports Massage
are a dedicated Remedial Massage practice
utilising ONLY soft tissue techniques.
Not providers of 'sportsstyle' massage
only as a sideline to other services.
Committed to hands-on Soft tissue therapy, treatment, education
and research for the benefit of all.
- Assessment, treatment and re-assessment throughout the duration
of a session means we are able to really pin down what is working
a course of treatments we can more acurately monitor
your overall progress.
At the end of each session YOU can walk out KNOWING
something really has changed for the better thanks to constant
direct feedback from testing and assessment.
at RESTORE is both motivating and empowering, bringing you actively
into the treatment process. Bringing in all aspects of YOUR life.
Considering ALL possible contributing factors.
if a rub down is all that is required or wanted then that is what
we will provide!
- 8+ years on, exemplary testimonials from world champion
athletes, and a thriving busy practice speaks for itself.
We don't advertise to any great extent as word of mouth brings
most of our new patients to the door. Check out our testimonials
- Treatment can have outstanding results, especially as the
soft tissue component to an illness, injury, imbalance or surgery
can often be neglected during the rehabilitation process. Once
the contributing factors have been eliminated, such as poor
biomechanics or damaged cartilage, sometimes all the body needs
is that final nudge in the right direction to substatially improve
musculoskeletal health and comfort... We provide this nudge
with a considered, skillful and educated approach.
years of fun and self inflicted pain spent chasing around
the mountains of the world; rock climbing, altitude
mountaineering, ski-ing, fell running, long distance
cycling and some knee crunching rugby thrown in my body
and especially knees are frustratingly giving up. After
long days out in the hills I'd retire to bed in severe
pain. A recent visit to my doctor and a knee specialist
confirmed damage and the expected onset of arthritis,
surgery Oh No ! My only alternative course of action
to slow the inevitable process:- work the supporting
muscles harder and a visit to a magician (Restore Sports
Massage). Cynical as ever I was starting to believe
that the surgeons knife was on the cards and nothing
could help, the surgeon thought so as well. Paul's massage
treatment has left me almost pain free, no behind the
knee cramping tendons and a flexing of the knee joint
that I haven't enjoyed for several years. More impressive
I spent 6 days out in the mountains of Scotland last
week, I'd normally return semi crippled from such a
trip with a painful swollen knee. I cycled to work as
normal the day after I got back and sleep pain free.
It's amazing how depressed you can get when you're denied
fun in the hills or just riding your bike to work. Back
on the road to a fully active life, for an old man.

not afraid of challenging both the closley held norms of clinical
practice and our own conditioned education. Maybe biomechanics
have caused back pain and maybe not. Maybe stretching can be
beneficial but maybe it can be harmful too. Do trigger points
or 'knots' really exist? We consider every posibility with the
patient even if it means that in the end massage may not be
the right intervention.
