With the evolving Covid-19 situation here at Total Therapy we continue to take the health and wellbeing of our patients and staff incredibly seriously. From a service delivery perspective we are continuing to offer all appointments. We maintain the highest standards of cleanliness on an ongoing basis, along with ensuring all patient contact surfaces are disinfected between each patient. We continue to ask patients to refrain from attending appointments if they are suffering with ANY upper or lower respiratory tract symptoms, such as a sore throat, temperature, dry or chesty cough or nasal congestion. We believe we all need to be responsible in preventing the spread of the virus and we are doing our best to ensure the ongoing health of our community. If you wish to discuss our measures further, prior to attending your appointment our team will be happy to help.
Thank you for your understanding.

WHAT IS SPORTS MASSAGE?
Sports massage is an effective technique for breaking down scar tissue, helping to relieve muscle and joint soreness and restoring length and balance to muscles. Sports massage is also commonly used to assist in the recovery of muscle strains, joint injuries and postural pains both in the acute and chronic stages of pain.
The function and performance of muscles can be significantly affected when adhesions are present. Although a sports or deep tissue massage can sometimes be painful, the positive effects will often be noticeable immediately after a session.
A course of treatments is normally recommended to completely break down all layers of fibrous adhesion and restore normal pain free joint patterns.
COMMON PROBLEMS WE TREAT WITH SPORTS MASSAGE INCLUDE:
- Aches and pains from sport or exercise
- Muscular tension and stiffness
- Back, neck and shoulder pain
