About Victoria soft tissue therapist
Victoria is a level 5 sports massage therapist who has over 20 years experience working in top 5* London hotels, sports and football clubs. She has also traveled the world with clients supporting them by maintaining their bodies whilst in competition and in every day life.
”I specialise in advanced soft tissue massage techniques, sports injuries, neuro-spinal assessment & treatment, neuro-muscular techniques, gait analysis, joint function & repair, PNF stretching, assessment of postural imbalances and devising treatment and aftercare plans.”
All treatments begin with a subjective and objective assessment to identify normal and abnormal findings.
Massage therapy is a hands on treatment used on the body's soft tissues to improve health and overall well-being, promote healing and injury recovery, improve flexibility and ease pain caused by muscle tightness. There are many different types of massage methods available.
I perform Soft Tissue Release (STR) techniques to restore normal muscle flexibility. Its particularly useful when the muscle becomes very tense and shortened. STR is often used after a muscle has been warmed up and manipulated.
I also perform Muscle Energy Techniques (MET's) in my treatments to improve musculoskeletal function through mobilising joints and stretching tight muscles & fascia. this will help reduce pain, improve circulation, lymphatic flow and mobility. METs are useful to people who are looking for more flexibility and mobility in their body, these can be done in all my treatments if needed.

RELAX, REPAIR, RECOVER
Reduce risk of injury, improve recovery time and breakdown of adhesions & scar tissue which builds up over time causing tension. Relieve muscular pain & discomfort and to improve joint mobility.
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. The pressure will generally be more intense than a relaxation massage.
Therapeutic massage is an all over body massage stimulating circulation, lymphatic and nervous system with gentle flowing movements.

I have been suffering with lower back pain for years and luckily I met Victoria a few months ago and she’s totally changed the way I feel! I haven’t experienced the pain since and she has given me exercises that are so beneficial that I can do in between our sessions. She is not only so knowledgeable and understands all about the body, she’s warm and kind and makes you feel like she really cares about you as a client. I would recommend her to anyone, even if you didn’t necessarily have a specific problem per say, but she knows all about how to look after your body day to day and keep the muscles healthy and in good order!
Victoria has not only helped me physically through her massage but has also shaped by attitude towards looking after my body through her enthusiasm and education. She’s a star!
