What is Sports Massage?
Sports massage is a physical, hands-on massage applied directly to the skin and is used as a means to manage, mobilise, manipulate and rehabilitate the soft tissues of the body such as muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Sports massage combines deep tissue work & stretching techniques to avoid injury & its recurrence. Regular massage relieves unbalanced muscles tensions, improving muscular functions & performance.
Sports massage is a perfect way to banish the stress & fatigue you have accumulated throughout your busy life. It is a very gentle form of body work which can have a profound effect on the mind & body.
Our sports massage therapists have a great understanding of muscle and skeletal anatomy and physiology, and often a keen interest in sport themselves. This puts them in the unique position to truly understand the dynamics of your chosen activity and the sports specific demands that that places on the body.
Our therapists work alongside highly qualified and experienced Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors who provide the most complete and well rounded approach to injury recovery and maintenance.

“I’m suffering from back pain for a number of years and more recently from tendonitis in both shoulders. A friend of mine recommended to see Soraya working as osteopath at Cambridge Complementary Health. Soraya helped me reducing the pain significantly by using manual treatment and gave helpful advice about how to stretch and loosen muscles. I would recommend her to other people with back and neck problems. She’s taken the time to listen to your problems carefully to get an idea about the whole picture of the problem. If I will need osteopathic help again I’d contact her.”
“I went to Cambridge Complementary Health for osteopathy for my neck and back. Service and treatment were both excellent. I saw Soriah the osteopath and she was very understanding and experienced. I had already tried chiropractic and physiotherapy, neither of which did the trick. She also gave great advice on continuing to build my fitness to avoid future problems. Thoroughly recommend!”
“First class treatment by all staff, admin and treatment alike. I recommended husband to Jack who has done a wonderful job. Definitely keep going for maintenance treatments as the original problem has completely cleared up thanks to not only the treatment but advice for how to keep it from not coming back in the form of exercises and posture. Many many thanks.”
