Stuart Doree is our massage therapist. Stuart qualified from the London School of Sports Massage in 2003 then spent six years in a physiotherapy clinic based in Essex. There he worked alongside other healthcare professionals, gaining further knowledge of musculoskeletal treatments to enhance his sports massage techniques.
This treatment is primarily aimed at people who are involved in sport or regular exercise. It's very good for treating sports injuries, as well as acting as a preventative measure, and can improve posture and flexibility. It will also enable you to improve performance and stamina. The techniques used within the treatment can address problems such as overtraining and muscle imbalance as well as other stresses placed on the body through physical activity. Recovery times are reduced, particularly post exercise, when this treatment is performed. This is a great treatment for dealing with the rigours of life. Having a deep tissue massage helps improve your circulation, relax your muscles, reduce tension and tightness, and psychologically make you feel relaxed. The massage itself works at a deeper level, realigning muscle fibres and connective tissue. Neck, shoulder and back tightness can often be attributed to poor posture and deep tissue massage can help restore balance.
The emphasis with this treatment is to have a soothing effect on your muscles, making you feel relaxed. The massage itself requires softer strokes, but the benefits still include improving circulation, stimulating the skin and nervous system to promote health and well-being.
