Sports massage is a common and effectively used treatment for muscular aches and pains throughout the body
What is it?
Sports massage is used to in 3 key ways:
1. Pain relief - Stretching and mobilising stiff and sore muscles to ease pain. Muscles can develop areas called trigger points that create painful pointe with muscle tissue. These can be relieved through target techniques during a sports masssage.
2. Exercise recovery - After a tough workout or within a focused training schedule amateur and elite level athletes can benefit from a sports massage to help promote recovery. The body spends typically 24-48 hrs recovering from exercise ensuring that energy sources are replenished, tissue is repaired and any inflammation is managed. A sports massage can help take the time off this recovery period getting you ready for the next session.
3. Relaxation - At times you need more depth to a massage than a gentle rub down. Sports massage therapists are trained to work into areas of the body that require extra depth, ensuring all muscles are given the attention they need. They also know when too much depth is problematic and a more subtle technique is required.
Who is it for?
Sports massage can be for all people, not just the physcially active. The main difference between deep tissue massage, remdial massage etc… and Sports Massage is the training extra the therapist receives. they are trained to a much higher level of understanding of anatomy, physiology and injuries

Kieran has helped me recover through climbing and running related injuries and each time provides a clear, methodical approach to recovery. Very supportive and knowledgeable!Braydan Barrett

I had ongoing issues with finger pain stemming from climbing too hard and Kieran had been highly recommended from many people. Starting with the initial consultation, he was able to pinpoint the source of my pain and with a mutually agreed rehabilitation plan, encouraged and supported me in achieving outstanding results. This was all carried out in a safe and professional manner at Vauxwall East clinic. Although I'm sure i could have found an excellent osteopath much nearer to where I live, I am convinced they would not be as knowledgeable as Kieran for my specific ailments and as such would not hesitate to recommend him for any climbing related injuries.Oliver Blatch

Kieran is a great attentive practitioner who has helped a great deal with a long standing neck issue and more recently knee pain. He spends a lot of time going over all issues you have in trying to understand and then prescribe suitable course of action along with links to videos that help demonstrate exercise techniques as part of a rehabilitation plan. I have found a lot of relief following a first time visit to see an Osteopath, and hopefully, no discredit to Kieran, don't have to visit again too soon! Really highly recommended.Joseph Fisher

From gymnastics to touch rugby and now rock climbing; I have had a fair few injuries all rehabilitated with the help of various physiotherapists. I am so glad that I chose to see Kieran regarding this particular injury! Kieran immediately reassured me through his knowledge of sports injuries and ability to understand the mindset of an enthusiast. Being a visual learner, I found the 3D anatomical model on the computer helpful in understanding my injury and was impressed with the prompt follow up email containing videos demonstrating my exercises. The follow up video consultation was fantastic and efficient. I feel this is a great tool, particularly as I live far from the clinic. Now I am back climbing with no pain! Long may this continue... however, I would not hesitate to contact Kieran in future if I was to need further treatment.Rebecca Malynn

Eglantine has been brilliant. We saw her with my husband and 2 month old baby boy and she was very knowledgeable and kind. She helped our whole family. Thank You!Anett Condick-Brough

If it was possible I would give 10 stars to Eglantine. She literally put me back on my feet after a very painful end of pregnancy - and now I can even do dance classes again! She can read my body's pains and needs like no-one. Dont know what I would do without these sessions!Carla Di Falco
