clinic services

We aim to offer our clients the best care and most effective treatments available in this field, and to provide a team who can assist with treatment to aid recovery whether you are an International athlete, regular, occasional or even a non-exerciser. In fact, not all Active clients take part in sport or exercise. Although many of our clients are athletes or serious exercisers, many of our clients who come in for treatments to back, neck and shoulder, legs, whole body, or even just relief from general stress, fall into the non-exercising category.

Soft Tissue Therapy

More than just a Massage

At Active Recovery we offer Soft Tissue Therapy to treat the musculoskeletal injuries, pain and/or dysfunction caused by any of life's stresses. We work with people from all walks of life and, although sport can be a common factor with many of our clients’ symptoms, this is far from being the main issue we deal with.

Soft Tissue Therapy integrates three essential clinical elements:

A Change in Emphasis

Soft Tissue Therapy incorporates a variety of manipulation techniques (including various styles of massage). With such a wide range of skills, as Soft Tissue Therapists we can provide you with a very effective treatment without necessarily using any conventional massage strokes. We can still do an excellent job treating athletes on all levels and Deep Tissue Massage (including Clinical, Remedial and Sports) is still a regular part of our work, but we do so much more.

Active can thus provide a portfolio of therapeutic treatments to alleviate problems that range from back pain, through to RSI, postoperative recovery, and sports injury, to stress reduction and general relaxation, whatever your age.

Corporate Services

Today work-related stress and musculoskeletal disorders are two of the major occupational health problems in the UK, affecting over a million workers each year. The costs associated with these disorders are massive and can prove costly for the individual, your business, and health service providers. In addition, the European Union are beginning to issue directives that will require corporate organisations to take action in this field.

Back strain, shoulder and neck pain, repetitive strain injury (RSI) and other forms of physical stress are among the leading causes of workplace illness and injury. Research and experience has shown that massage can greatly assist in alleviating these problems.

Active Recovery has been working successfully in the corporate market, supplying professional 'On-Site' services. These can be tailored to suit the needs of your business; our aim being to optimise your staff's potential whilst at work. We offer a range of service options, not only therapeutic massage, but also workshops and presentations on subjects such as Diet & Weight Management, Lifestyle Modification, Postural Awareness, Relaxation, Self Help, etc.

Should you require any further information about us or our any of our services please use our 'Enquiries' section, or you can always write or telephone and we will be happy to answer your enquiry.

Note: We are proud that all practitioners associated with Active have full qualifications, and regularly attend further training workshops. All have extensive experience and up to date knowledge in their chosen therapy.

Our Service

Active provides services for everyone; from over worked business executives to everyday house-wives, from non-exercisers to World Class sports performers, indeed anyone who may be exposed to repetitive stressful work or physical exertion during the course of their daily routine. Whether you need to 'wind down' from everyday stresses, relieve the tightness caused by work or training sessions, or recover from soft tissue injury, we provide the perfect solution, from deep tissue manipulation to gentle Indian Head massage.
