Common issues that can be treated with sports massage treatment:
Muscle tension and stiffness
Neck, shoulder and back pain
Aches and pains from exercise and ongoing activity
Stress and anxiety symptoms

What can I expect from my first treatment?
Your first treatment will consist of an initial assessment, which will involve discussing your health background, your lifestyle and where any pain points are located. Sports massages are different to a regular massage, as the treatment tends to focus on a particular area, with the use of manipulation to release any tension felt in the muscle group.

Sports massage Aylesbury
"I would highly recommend Alex. I went to see her as I had hurt my lower back. Not only did she work out why it was hurting she stopped it hurting with her brilliant sports massages and advised me on what I needed to do to prevent it from happening again. I cannot thank her enough!"
Kylie L - Sports massage client
"Alex is very detailed in her appraisal of your injury or issue and completes a thorough rehab session, providing after-care advice. If an old injury or back
pain is troubling you, it is great value for money and definitely worth a try.
I can't recommend her highly enough."
Richard - Sports massage client
"I cannot recommend Alex enough. After leaving A&E with a sports injury, I had no idea on the recovery process and recovery time. Alex helped me in the healing process of my injury as well through taping and massage, and giving me lots of exercises to speed up the recovery. Professional, COVID safe and so helpful. I will definitely be using Alex again throughout recovery."
