About Sports Massage Treatments

Andreas’ treatments expertly ease into deep tissue treatments within an osteopathic context.

When moderate and light pressure massage was compared, only moderate pressure was shown to have some contribution to a reduction in pain.
(Field 2014; Mancini et al 2015)

Moderate pressure massage was also shown capable of modifying neurophysiological parameters such as heart rate, and a decrease cortisol levels(a key stress hormone).

What the patients say

“My initial consultation with Andreas came about due to severe pain in my foot and lower calf. A series of treatments ensued and Andreas was able to successfully deal with this condition (I’m now fully back up and running again, literally). I’ve been seeing him now for just over two years, on a monthly basis, to ensure that any aches and strains (usually brought about by sports or work ) are dealt with before they escalate further. Andreas is highly professional and extremely knowledgeable, I trust him completely and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to friends and colleagues.”

“I have been seeing Andreas for many years, for various concerns and injuries. He is extremely professional and very knowledgeable. His treatments are very, very comprehensive, I feel he always gives 100% and more to every appointment and I come away feeling a lot better.”
