Soft Tissue Therapy

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.

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.

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.

Soft Tissue Therapy integrates three essential clinical elements:


Applying a range of assessment methods to determine whether Soft Tissue Therapy is appropriate for your problem, and to devise a suitable treatment plan for you.


Applying a range of soft tissue techniques (including massage) to aid you in your recovery from injury and to improve your soft tissue condition and joint mobility.


In many cases we will offer advice on a range of remedial exercises and lifestyle factors aimed at speeding up your recovery and preventing injury recurrence as well as improving your posture, performance, and function.

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.

Should you require any further information about us or any of our services please use our contact section, or alternatively you can always email or telephone 01509 556101 and we will be happy to answer your enquiry.
