Is it for me?

As a member of the Sports Massage Association, I am obliged to identfy anyone for whom sports massage would be ill advised or detrimental to their short or long term wellbeing.  I assess each individual and with their agreement, provide the appropriate massage techniques.  If necessary I will advise if alternative action or therapy other than sports massage is required.
