Hi, I'm Helen, an experienced Sports and Deep Tissue Massage Therapist based in Sheffield, UK
I found my passion in Soft Tissue Therapy and qualified as a Holistic and Deep Tissue Massage Therapist in 2012. From there on I qualified in Sports Massage Therapy from the London School of Massage in 2015 and furthered my skills in 2016.
I have worked both as a self-employed therapist and within two prestigious Physiotherapy clinic settings in Sheffield. I now work for myself, in the Walkley area of Sheffield
I offer the following:
Functional movement tests
Deep Tissue Work
Soft Tissue Release
Muscle Energy Techniques
Active and Passive Stretching
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Release
Please get in touch and we can discuss your needs and book you in for a session at a time to suit you. Everyone will require different treatment and my opening hours can vary each week.
Benefits of Sports Massage
Sports massage therapy benefits everyone, from elite athletes who want to perform at their best, to weekend warriors or those that enjoy physical activity in the gym or at fitness classes. It includes those in physically demanding jobs, to people at desk job suffering from stress and tension. Massage is also great if you just need to relax and rejuvenate from the daily stresses of life.
I tailor the massage to your specific needs, so no one treatment is the same. Tailored sports massage has many benefits:
Prepares the body and mind for peak performance by promoting mobility and flexibility.
Increases energy levels and a feeling of well-being from stressful or challenging sporting or lifestyle and work patterns.
Pinpoints tightness and small niggles before they become bigger problem areas and increases overall body awareness.
Reduces muscle tension and tightness to ensure you can perform at your best during training and recover faster after a competition.
Perfect for your full body maintenance massage including back and neck, arms, legs and glutes and feet.
Ideal for a section of the body such as back and neck, or legs and glutes. Great for a pre or post massage treatment.
Suitable for a specific area, often to treat small injuries and niggles, such as the calf, neck and shoulders.
