Established in 2007, Eastleigh Sports Massage Therapy is just fifteen minutes from Winchester and twenty minutes from Southampton. Clients visit our pain relief clinic from Romsey, Hedge End, Gosport, Chandler's Ford and surrounding areas in Hampshire.
Eastleigh Sports Massage Therapy is run by Katherine Johnson (MFHT, MFHST), a Registered Clinical Massage & Sports Massage Therapist. Katherine is qualified in a number of different massage styles, including Remedial Massage, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage and Clinical Massage in addition to holding qualifications in Reflexology and Aromatherapy. Katherine is also a Member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT).
Katherine has trained under some of the top massage and bodywork trainers in the country, including Jing Advanced Massage and Training, Jane Johnson and John Gibbons. She incorporates the latest techniques in treatments, combining Osteopathic and modern massage practices from around the world.
What makes Katherine unique is her very tailored approach to treatment. Following an initial assessment, treatments are personalised for each individual. Katherine does not follow a set routine, preferring to select and combine various massage techniques, as appropriate, to achieve the best results. Massage treatments include a postural assessment and homecare advice, including exercise and stretching guidelines when appropriate.
This very holistic approach means that rather than taking a short term view and simply treating the initial area of pain, Katherine takes into account a number of lifestyle factors - including activity and stress levels, as well as dietary habits. She then looks at treatment for overall muscle groups associated with the area of pain, allowing her to address the underlying cause of the problem.
Committing to a series of treatment sessions working with entire muscle groups has excellent longer term health benefits. Eastleigh Sports Massage Therapy offers excellent value for money, as Katherine believes it is important to make the correct treatment as accessible as possible for anyone suffering from chronic pain.
Katherine is happy to welcome clients into her home, where she has a dedicated, professional treatment room. A great benefit of working in this way is that Katherine is not only able to put clients quickly at ease as they are welcomed into comfortable surroundings, but she is also able to be very flexible. It is important that patients are able to relax and feel comfortable in their surroundings. By working from home, Katherine is proud to provide a highly professional service without a cold, clinical feel.
