All treatments are tailored to meet your individual requirements and presenting conditions, plus any contributing biomechanical and lifestyle factors. I combine a variety of advanced techniques to provide you with a personalised approach, including Clinical MassageSports Massage practices, Deep Tissue Techniques, mobilisation, exercise therapy and osteopathic-based Soft Tissue Manipulation. I’m also qualified to assess your Posture and Gait, and advise on Postural Correction methods to help ease any discomfort.


Often, there is not an obvious reason for the discomfort you may be experiencing, and at times it's a symptom of another problem. The cause of pain can be due to posture, gait or biomechanical imbalances, where strain is put on a particular area of the muscle, or a respective action. Overuse during sporting activity, or a direct force on the muscle can also cause pain and discomfort.

Areas Affected:

  • Quadratus lumborum
  • Gluteus Maximus, Gluteus Medius, Gluteus minimus
  • Iliopsoas
  • Hamstrings group
  • Adductors group


Common Conditions Treated:

Hip Flexor Strain
The cause of injury is repetitive stress on the hip flexor muscles, without appropriate strength training, warming up, or rest and recovery. A forceful hyperextension of the leg or hip can also cause this injury. Pain can be felt in the upper groin, anterior area of the hip, or when the leg and hip is flexed. This is inflammation and tenderness over the hip flexor.

Performis Syndrome
Is caused by incorrect gait whilst walking or running, weak adductor muscles, or tight gluteus performis muscles. Pain can be felt along the sciatic nerve, when climbing stairs, or walking an incline. There can be increased pain during prolonged sitting.

Snapping Hip
The cause is a tight illiotibial band or gluteus muscles, or a labral tear. Symptoms are a snapping sensation in the hip, which can be painful, but is usually a dull ache.

Trochantera Bursitis
The cause is repetitive hip action such as running, or an impact or other trauma to the bursa which lies over the greater trochanter. Tight illiotibal band movement is also a cause. Symptoms are tenderness and swelling over the bony prominence at the top of the thigh/hip. Pain can be felt when flexing or extending the hip, such as when walking.

Groin Strain
The cause of this condition is a forceful stretch to the adductor muscle, or a forceful contraction of the adductor muscles. There can be various degrees of pain; grade 1 is a mild pain, grade 2 is more painful and grade 3 is very painful.

Although one session is highly beneficial, regular massage treatments maximise the numerous benefits.
