Massage / Pain Relief


Soft tissue therapy techniques have been recorded as being used by athletes and warriors for thousands of years. From housework to house building, gardening to marathon running, our bodies need to be kept in optimal condition.


Soft tissue therapy covers a combination of techniques that may include: massage, neuromuscular techniques, muscle energy techniques, soft tissue release and mechanical treatments.


We would position Seti, our soft tissue specialist somewhere between a sports massage and Physio, so if you have a specific area of concern, Seti is the one to see.


To ensure the continued wellbeing of clients, all treatments begin with a consultation, to allow your therapist to assess if, or what technique of Soft Tissue is correct for you. Your therapist will then explain exactly what they intend to do, what areas of the body they intend to treat and how to treat them and will tell you if they need to work on the skin or through clothing.


Soft tissue therapy can be used and is very beneficial when there is a specific area of concern. Alternatively it can be used as part of a sports massage treatment.


It is highly effective and allows for the client to have a full treatment on the first appointment (subject to assessment). The techniques and tools used allow for a deep massage or release without the excessive pain.


The benefits of Soft Tissue Therapies are: •    Relief from muscle strain and tension •    Improved range of movement in joints •    Increased flexibility •    Recovery from training sessions •    A general sense of health and wellbeing


NB. Soft tissue therapies should not be used in place of conventional medical care. Always consult a GP or other health professional for medical attention and advice.

Physiotherapy is a Health Care Profession; all Physiotherapists are Registered with the Health Care Professions Council and are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapist.

Physiotherapy is dedicated to promoting mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential through a thorough examination, evaluation, diagnosis, and physical intervention.

Physiotherapy applies a holistic and reasoned approach to help people of all ages and abilities to achieve their health and activity goals, whether in everyday activities, sport (at whatever level) and the work environment.

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists are experts in assessing and treating a wide range of soft tissue injuries (muscle, ligament and tendon sprains or strains, lower back and neck injuries), whether from Sport or every day activities, more chronic conditions such a arthritic joints and longstanding conditions, and providing post-operative treatment and rehabilitation( for example after joint replacements, fractures, ligament repairs or spinal surgery).

Following assessment, a thorough explanation of the nature of the problem encourages individuals to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing. Treatment will involve ‘hands on’ techniques such as joint mobilization and manipulation, soft tissue massage, myofascial release, electrotherapy such as ultrasound where appropriate, kinesiology taping, and rehabilitation exercises with a long-term programme for prevention, tailored to your individual needs.

Sports massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue. Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. 

Sports massage is not just for athletes. Anyone can benefit from it. So, whether you are a sports person who needs a maintenance massage, 
you just have general tightness, or you simply fancy a nice relaxing massage, we can help.

Sports Massage not only assists physically but is can also greatly improve your mental well-being. This is because Cortisol (our stress hormone) decreases and serotonin (hormone that affects how we feel) increases following a massage. 

Maria is available for appointments at Southwell Wellbeing Centre Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
