To fit around your hectic and busy lifestyle I offer a mobile service with flexible hours, meaning you can keep your body in top condition with the minimum of fuss, all in the comfort of your own home.

What happens in initial consolation?
A full history will be taken including general health, any symptoms and injuries. Following this, the therapist will conduct a few simple tests highlighted by the history. All this helps us to target the root of the problem rather than just the symptoms.

Do I need to be a sports person?
Sports massage is not just for treating sports injuries in athletes. Almost everyone could benefit from specially developed sports massage techniques, as it is an excellent therapy for any muscular aches and pains, such as neck, back and shoulder tension, whether caused by driving, gardening, computer use or even stress.

Does it hurt?
Sometimes Sports massage or Deep Tissue massage can be a little uncomfortable, but it is only ever a ‘good’ pain. YOU are always in charge, so if you’re uncomfortable in anyway please say and we’ll try a different approach!

What shall I wear?
Only the parts of the body that are being treated are exposed, but underwear/shorts should be worn at all times. No upper garments need to be removed if its only the legs being worked on.

Can I treat injuries?
No, unfortunately, Level 3 Sport Massage doesn't permit the treatment of Sport Injuries. However, the surrounding muscle groups can still benefit, especially due to the extra strain that is often placed on them to 'over compensate' for the weakened/injured muscle. If I feel you need further treatment I would refer you to GP or Physio.

"Highly recommended!" - Ada Gower, Canterbury City FC

"Fantastic massage. I was made to feel very relaxed and felt like the experience was tailored to my specific needs. I was given some good advice for future exercise and stretching and found that even after one session my muscle tension had improved significantly." - Emma, Chartham Hatch

"Had my first sport massage from Steven Baines it was extremely good it really helped with my bad leg. Very professional and made me feel relaxed. Would highly recommend to anyone who is in need of some comfort from a injury or general aches and pains!" - Claire, Chartham

"This sports massage was totally different from a relaxing massage. As stephen worked on each knot and tensed up muscle it was painful at times but Stephen always controlled the pressure and made sure I was comfortable. I do beleive it has benefited me and i am about to book my third massage. Well worth the money." Liam, Canterbury
