Adam Park-Elliott - Sports & Remedial Massage Practitioner

LSSMDip, RSA / BTEC, SMA

Sports massage has gained widespread recognition as a valuable aid in the prevention and treatment of injuries; used during training, or before an event, as part of an athlete's overall preparation, as well as after competition to relieve muscular tightness and aid recovery. It gives best results when administered on a regular basis to prevent muscular tension, and can deal with minor injuries which, if left untreated, could become chronic and affect performance. Treatments are designed for the individual to give maximum benefit, and involve manipulation, stretching, mobilisation of joints and muscles to increase range of movement and further aid the body's own healing processes.

Treatment sessions last 45 to 60 minutes – the initial consultation includes a brief medical history, and it is very important that you advise us of any medical treatment, medical condition, or regular medication you are receiving. A treatment plan will be discussed with you, and advice may be given on stretching and similar remedial exercises to help continue your recovery. I have treated people from all walks of life who simply realise the benefits of regular massage – that 'feel good' factor !
Please note that whilst able to treat young people, if they are 16 years old or under, it would be necessary for a responsible adult [I.e.parent or coach] to be in attendance throughout the entire treatment session.

I have been a qualified massage practitioner since 1995, and continue to keep abreast of developments in all aspects of massage; attending conferences, seminars and workshops on specialist or sports related subjects organised by professional bodies. I have spent time, both in the UK and abroad, working alongside physiotherapists, chiropractors, doctors and sports coaches in a wide variety of sporting and non-sporting areas, including:-
