Regular sessions will increase joint mobility and flexibility, and reduce the risk of injury during exercise.Rest assured that our sports massage is not just for the professional athlete.

Frequently asked questions

If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, please contact us.

What can I expect on my first session?

We will start with a full consultation, including your personal details, lifestyle, any allergies and your general health. This way we can work together to help determine the cause of any muscular dysfunctions you may have and treat accordingly. This will take approximately 15 minutes.

I don’t play regular sport – can I still have a sports massage?

Of course. Sports massage is not just for competing athletes. Everyday aches and pains caused by poor posture or repetitive strain from your occupation can be eliminated by sports massage. Sports massage can have a positive impact on your lifestyle as well as increasing energy levels.

Does a sports massage hurt?

Yes and no! Pain suggests that treatments are designed to make you wince. This is not the case. If there is a particular problematic area that requires some deep tissue work, then yes, there may be an element of discomfort associated with treating that area. If the discomfort becomes too much we can ease off or try a different technique. Our approach is not to make the massage hurt just for the sake of urban myth, but to ensure goals are achieved with each session.

What do I wear?

You will always be covered by towels or sheets, with only the body part being worked on exposed, so sensible clothing and comfortable underwear is ideal. If you prefer to wear shorts/sports clothing then ensure they are loose fitting. Female clients, if you are having back treatment please refrain from wearing a sports bra. A regular bra with a strap allows better access to the entire back for a more complete massage.

Will you visit me at home?

Home visits are available depending on your location and distance from our Rework therapy room. A fee for home visits may be charged on top of treatment to cover fuel and time. Please contact me for pricing. There will be no extra fee within a 1 mile radius of Sutton station.

Do you offer discount for packages?

Yes. 3 x 60 minute sessions for £120 (£30 saving). This must be booked and paid for in full on your first session.

Is there a late cancellation/no show charge?

Yes. Where possible I ask for at least 24 hours notice on any cancellation. Anyone who either forgets or consciously chooses to forgo their appointment without informing me will be considered a no show. They will be charged the full amount for their missed appointment, and future service will be denied until payment is made.All cancellations or no show charges will be at the discretion of the therapist.

Fascial Stretch Therapy

First things first, what is fascia? Fascia is an internal connective tissue that wraps around muscles, bones, joints and organs, providing shape and support for the body. It has the appearance of a very thin spider web, connecting layers of muscle and surrounding all internal body tissues. Here is a video explaining further. Although it often goes unrecognised studies have shown that there are at least 6 times as many sensory receptors in our fascial tissues than in the muscles. Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a pain free table based assisted stretching technique. It focusses on the body’s fascial system and joint capsule to gain the optimal level of flexibility by using traction. Whether you have been suffering with chronic pain, want to move better or just want someone to stretch you from head to toe then give FST a try.

Benefits

  • Improve posture
  • Increase flexibility
  • Reduce pain
  • Reduce risk of injury
  • Improve mobility
  • Decrease stress
  • Increase performance levels

Frequently asked questions

What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is an assisted stretching technique designed to target the body’s joints fascial system. It also help relax and re-educate the nervous system.

How is this different from conventional stretching?

Fascial Stretch therapy was created by Ann Fredericks in Arizona in the mid 90’s. Unlike normal stretching it focussing on decompressing (tractioning) a joint in order to achieve its true range of motion. Studies have shown that 47% of a person’s flexibility comes from their joints. Breathing is key to this treatment which allows the body to disarm the nervous system, release fascial adhesions and relieve pain.

Fascial? Is that to do with the face?

No, this is not a facial treatment. This is a full body, head to toe, fascial treatment. Fascia a web of connective tissue under the skin that covers the entire body and its structures.

What do I need to wear?

This is a fully clothed table based treatment. It is advised you wear loose fitted clothing or gym wear as well as bringing a top for warmth.

Cupping Therapy

The skin is drawn upwards through suction in a cup, over a targeted area of the skin. The cup stays in place for 5 – 15 minutes and is then removed. This ancient form of alternative medicine treats localised pain, assists in the breakup and re-alignment of deep scar tissue, and softens tight muscles and knots. Cupping Therapy works by creating a vacuum inside a cup that is placed on the body, which draws stagnant blood and sticky fluids (that forms around tears in the muscle fibres) to the skin’s surface. With the waste fluid being drawn away these damaged fibres, new healthy circulation rushes to the area allowing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the area, encouraging faster recovery. This a fantastic alternative medicine to release tension in the muscles and break up adhesions. This therapy may not be suitable for everyone as it will leave visible redness on the skin, that last approximately 10 days but for some could last up to 3 weeks.

Benefits can include

  • Enhanced blood circulation
  • Removal of stagnant blood and fluid that can remain around old injuries
  • Better performing lymphatic system
  • Reduced stress levels
  • Softened scar tissue
  • Relaxed nervous system

Frequently asked questions

If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, please contact us.

Is cupping safe?

Yes. This treatment has been around for many years. Your therapist is highly trained and qualified in cupping techniques and will only use it if it is safe to do so and there are no contraindications.

Will it hurt and bruise?

There is an element of discomfort with this technique, depending on where on the body you have it. Although this treatment will leave marks on the skin, it is not bruising. Bruising is caused by impact trauma with the breakage of capillaries and a reactionary rush of fluids to the damaged location from the tissue injury. There is no compression in correctly performed cupping. The severity of marks left on the skin depends on the amount of stagnation in the tissues. If there is little stagnation and the tissues are healthy then the marks left will be light pink and fade quickly. If there is a high amount of stagnation then the marks left can be dark purple in colour and take a longer time to fade. Before treatment you will be made fully aware of the effects it leaves on the skin.

What are the benefits?

Benefits include, enhance blood circulation, stimulate immune system, activates lymphatic system, stress reduction, post surgery adhesions, soften scar tissue, relax the nervous system and clearing stagnant blood around an injured tissue.

What is massage cupping?

Massage cupping is a form of dry cupping where lotion is applied to the skin and the cup is move along the body to a desired spot. This is a great way of locating areas of stagnation in the tissues as the colour of the marks on the skin will indicate areas that will need attention. It also helps break up cellulite.
