Did you know that here at Chapel Leisure Centre, the symptoms we treat the most are stiff neck, aching back & sore shoulders?

Deep Tissue Massage/Sports Massage is one of our specialties. The sports massage is not only for sports people,

it is for everyone who wants a deep massage!

Massage is a manipulation of the muscles & soft tissues of the body to reduce tension, stretch ligaments and tendons to keep them flexible, flush out toxins & promote balance in the body & mind. Benefits may include increased circulation, improve the condition of skin and muscle, improve joint mobility, reduced oedema & stimulate digestion. Massage can also help with uplifting your emotional state & may also help reduce insomnia.

Sports or deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue & are

especially helpful for chronic & tense areas such as stiff necks, lower back tightness and sore shoulders. Using

specific strokes, a Deep Tissue Massage is both powerful & vigorous to get to the deeper layers of muscle tissue.

Sports Massage uses the same techniques & is typically used before, during, & after athletic events. The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance. It does this by draining away toxins, helping to reducing swelling & muscle tension, improving flexibility & reducing the risk of sustaining injuries.

Regular treatments can help break down scar tissue, remove the build-up of toxins, improve mobility & reduce the risk of further injury.

Girl having Sports Massage

"I am passionate about sport but sometimes struggle to keep up with the demands that running, tennis and swimming can put on a 50 something body! I am delighted to recommend Celia. With her care and support I am still very active as she is able, through massage, to target the areas that experience wear and tear the most and prevent the other areas going the same way! Over the years I have spent a small fortune on osteopaths, chiropractors and physios. The person who has made the biggest impact though is Celia ... all in about 8 weeks."
