Hello I'm Elaine a qualified and insured level 4 sports massage therapist working in and around leicestershire.
Sports massage is primarily associated with injury prevention and recovery as a means of optimising performance. But it’s not just a treatment for athletes. It’s also useful when tackling other problems, including back pain and postural issues – increasingly common complaints among those of us who sit for long periods of time at a desk.
With sports massage, the pressure applied is generally deeper and combines stretching of specific muscles and surrounding areas. As a sports massage therapist I have gone through extensive training in anatomy and physiology and understand the physical demands of competitive sports. I will assess the state of your muscles and design treatment plans to help prevent injury and aid performance and recovery. Alongside more advanced massage techniques, I may also give advice to improve your flexibility, boost performance and recovery.
If your issue is not sports-related but due to a sedentary occupation, I can help tackle those postural imbalances that often lead to muscular strains – stretching short, tight muscles and advising you how to strengthen weak areas.
My treatments work on improving the quality of soft tissue in the body, putting your needs first so that you feel better as soon as possible, I offer mobile appointments covering Leicestershire, and also clinic appointments in Loughborough .
I strive to provide you with the best care possible, I work deeply and instinctively, responding to the muscles and soft tissues in the body, tailoring each treatment to the clients physical needs or injuries.
I am a level 4 sports massage therapist working with all kinds of sport and non sport clients throughout Leicester, Loughborough & Leicestershire. From runners and boxers to cyclists & athletes. Sports massage can really benefit non sports people too, helping redress imbalances built up through everyday activities.
Sports Massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is applicable not just to sports people but to anybody wishing to guard against or recover from a soft tissue injury.
Deep Tissue Massage reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. This massage is beneficial for athletes and those who sit for long periods of time.
I provide both pre, intra and post event sports massage, please contact me for details if you are organising or taking part in an event. Whether as part of a pre-event warm-up or post-event massage to relieve aches and help restore the body to a more relaxed state, athletes benefit from massage.

Taping and strapping is a part of my services, a fantastic extra to be added to your sessions if needed, or a stand alone service!
Dry Cupping Therapy uses special cups to create a vacuum pressure in specific areas of the body. The procedure is usually performed on the client’s back to promote healing, helps release toxins and to trigger the lymphatic system. People have cupping for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Dry needling, also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling, is an alternative medicine technique similar to acupuncture. It involves the use of solid needles for therapy of muscle pain, including pain related to myofascial pain. Dry needling is mainly used to treat myofascial trigger points, but it is also used to target connective tissue, neural ailments, and muscular ailments. Dry needling is a technique used to treat dysfunction of skeletal muscle and connective tissue, minimize peripheral nociception (pain), and improve or regulate structural or functional damage.

Medical acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of health conditions, but the most common reason to try medical acupuncture is for pain relief.
A course of acupuncture usually creates longer lasting pain relief than when a single treatment is used.
