Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy
I'm Karen, a Level 4 qualified Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.
Whether you are an active sportsperson or not, my goal is to restore your mobility, get you moving, keep you moving and ensure effective rehabilitation.
I Provide a comprehensive service using various techniques including Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue Massage, Muscle Friction, Trigger Point Therapy, Soft Tissue Release (STR) Muscle Energy Techniques (MET) and Myofascial Cupping.
Over the years I have sustained my fair share of injuries and mobility issues and am fully aware of the impact they can have on daily life. This has driven me to learn more about our amazing bodies, how they work and how we can repair and restore them.
My goal is to get you back on track, feeling good and ready to tackle anything, so if you feel I can help, get in touch.
WHY MAY I NEED TO SEE A SPORTS AND REMEDIAL MASSAGE THERAPIST?
You don't need to be injured through sport or activity to feel sore and uncomfortable. Anyone can be affected by muscle dysfunction and musculoskeletal problems which can cause weakness, instability, reduced mobility and pain.
Poor posture, headaches, inactivity, stress and lifestyle can all lead to discomfort and pain and can often be the most common cause.
Sports Massage is not just for the super fit. If you are in pain, having to move differently or avoid activities and certain movements,
Massage can directly improve the balance, posture and stability of the body, it can help prevent injury, rehabilitate current injuries and maintain optimal range of movement, it can even improve performance.
I treat a range of people from footballers to office workers, those who are incredibly fit and those who are suffering with musculoskeletal disorders.
Sports and Remedial Massage is constantly progressing as we discover more about how the body works and repairs we identify new ways to support that development and improvement.
I offer the following treatments:
Sports Massage / Remedial Massage - 1 hour appt - £50

This will allow me to gain a full understanding of the issues affecting you and compose a comprehensive treatment plan to achieve optimum results.
