At Stretch we offer a range of massage therapy treatments including sports massage, holistic and pregnancy massage. We tailor our treatments to your individual requirements, whether you want to relax and unwind, or to prepare for a sporting event.


Sports massage treatment releases muscle tension, alleviating aches and pains from sports injuries, enhancing performance, facilitating recovery and providing relaxation tailored to your preferences.


Holistic massage therapy combines deep Swedish and remedial techniques to ease muscle tension, alleviate chronic pain and enhance relaxation, with treatments tailored to your needs.


Pregnancy massage at Stretch, available from the second trimester, promotes relaxation and well-being, alleviating muscle pain associated with pregnancy, reducing stress hormones and enhancing circulation and oxygenation.


Our Approach to Massage 

Our approach to massage focuses on relieving muscle tightness and reducing the effects of delayed-onset muscle soreness through targeted techniques that release tension directly on the muscular system and indirectly on the nervous system, promoting relaxation and aiding in the removal of waste products from muscles, thereby preventing injuries and improving posture by restoring optimal soft tissue lengths.

questions, answered

  • Do I need to visit my doctor first to get a referral?
    No, you may self refer by contacting us directly either by telephone or e-mail. However, GP and Consultant referrals are also welcome.
  • How long is each treatment session?
    Please allow 45 minutes for your initial assessment and treatment session. Follow-up treatments are also 45 minutes. If a longer appointment is needed in order to deal with multiple complex issues, a double session will need to be booked and paid for.
  • How many sessions will I need?
    Most people tend to need between 4 and 5 sessions of treatment but this depends on the specific nature of your problem. Your Physiotherapist will be able to indicate how many sessions may be required following your assessment but ultimately the number of sessions needed, will depend on your progress.
  • What should I wear?
    Please wear comfortable clothing and be aware that as part of your Physiotherapy assessment and treatment you may be asked to undress. Please bring shorts if you have a lower limb problem and a vest if your problem is with your neck or upper limb.
  • How soon after the onset of symptoms should I seek treatment?
    We prefer to assess you as soon as possible but generally recommend an appointment at least 48 hours after an acute injury. Please feel free to ring for advice in the event of an injury and one of our Physiotherapists will be able to advise you what to do and when you should come in and see us.
  • How do I pay?
    Payment is required by cash, cheque or bank transfer at the time of treatment. Receipts can be provided if required.
