Sports Therapy Wirral 

Sports Therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.

It utilises the principles of sport and exercise sciences incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare the participant for training, competition and where applicable, work. 

Sports Massage Wirral

The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.

I am qualified to level 5 in sports massage - the highest level available in the UK.

Deep Tissue Massage Wirral

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a technique which works deeply into the tissues of the body. It is a gentle, hands on technique which uses slow moving and sustained holds to release the deeper tissue of the body - otherwise known as fascia.

The gentle, slow paced nature makes it particularly beneficial for more sensitive clients or those with chronic pain conditions such as Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Myofascial Release can also be very effective for clients with deep tissue injuries whose condition has not responded to other forms of treatment or therapies. This is usually a sign there is an issue with the fascial system rather than the muscles or tendons.

Through my clinic work, I have personally found Myofascial Release to be one of the most effective forms of treatment which can have profound benefits. See our separate Myofascial Release page for more information.

Neil Wilson

I had been having problems with my knee for over 6 months. I was recommended by a friend to make an appointment, the service I received was very professional and friendly. It was made clear to me after an initial examination how many sessions I would need. I do a lot of long distance running and now I no longer have anymore pain in my knee.

John Hammond

Highly recommended ! I ‘like’ to run a lot of marathons and Jeff has helped me out a lot along the way getting rid of all niggles, pulls, strains etc !

Allan Edwards

Jeff has been more than instrumental in my Ironman training. With all the sessions in my strenuous training schedule he is a must to aid recovery and onwards progress.

Susan Brooks

I couldn’t bend my knees without severe pain and couldn’t kneel, and after a month or so of sessions I can now kneel again, and my pain is hardly there!!
Thank you Jeff
