We offer sports massage to people from all walks of life in our clinic in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.
Despite the name, this treatment can be beneficial to anyone with muscular aches and strains, from the avid gardener to the office computer worker – anyone who wants to target a specific area or areas with a stronger massage that works deep into the muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
This remedial massage is ideal for deep tension, injury recovery, or after intensive exercise, helping to improve circulation, eliminate toxins, remodel scar tissue and restore range of movement. Often it is used to treat everything from pulled hamstrings, frozen shoulders, whiplash injuries, sore backs, and Achilles tendonitis.
For athletes, regular sports massages are essential, as they can help enhance athletic performance by speeding up recovery from an injury or a heavy training session, and by preventing injury by tackling twinges and aches early before they become more serious which can mean weeks off from exercising.
Depending on the needs of the client a variety of techniques are used including frictions, pressure point work, hacking, cupping, and Swedish-style massage strokes.
After the treatment, you will be provided with stretches and exercises to continue at home to assist your recovery, increase your flexibility, and to improve your health.
I first went to see Kerryanne about my clicky jaw a few years back which I'd had since childhood. The hospital said the only option was to cut through the muscles in my face and wash the joint out. Thinking this was quite brutal and extreme, someone suggested Kerryanne. I went along to see her and after a few sessions, she fixed me purely through massage - glad I didn't listen to the doctor! Since then, I have continued to see Kerryanne for a sports massage once a month, occasionally switching to Rossiter. She is basically a legend! She has stopped my clicky jaw coming back and offers health tips and advice. She's super friendly, very knowledgeable and always professional. She's amazing at firm massage and the products she uses smell amazing. I couldn't recommend her enough. If she ever changes jobs or location, I don't know what I'll do! Thanks for your help as always Kerryanne - you're a star!
I’ve been seeing Kerryanne for years, having Rossiter, reflexology and for general sports massage. She always gets the right spots and I feel loads better and relaxed after treatments.
I visited Kerry following a recommendation. I had been suffering with recurring lower back pain for several years and went to see Kerry but didn't really know what to expect, so was a bit anxious. Kerry is lovely and made me feel at ease but is also very professional and knowledgeable. She diagnosed I had suffered a historic back injury which, by not having it treated, had caused muscle to deteriorate. I had the sports massage which relieved my painful bad back and gave me valuable advice on how to proceed. I also saw Kerry prior to a long flight and activity holiday and had pulled a muscle at work. Kerry quickly identified the damaged area by massaging the injured tissue and did hot stone therapy. It helped immensely - I had regained almost all, pain free, mobility. Kerry explained which muscle it was, how injury can be caused and gave me some stretching exercises to do on the plane. I went on to have a great pain-free holiday. Thank you Kerry.
I have been suffering with leg pain for 7 years, and have had various massages from different salons and spa places, however, I was never fully satisfied with my treatments and would leave thinking 'this isn't for me' or 'this hasn't helped.' I always felt like the treatments I had received were not applying the right pressure I needed to be relieved from the pain I had, therefore I decided to research on the best massage places available online, and thankfully came across this page, and haven't been to another place since! I had never thought of having a sports massage before, and before even booking my appointment, Kerryanne asked me my background about where my pain had started, what type of pain I had and so forth, and after all these years of suffering and not knowing why I had this pain, Kerryanne was the one who encouraged me to get an MRI scan and was able to work out what my pain was before I even got it diagnosed. I am so grateful for coming across Kerryanne's page, and not only is she fantastic at her job, she is a genuinely lovely person who really cares about helping her clients get to the root of their problems. I would recommend Kerryanne to anyone and I haven't found ANYONE as good as her.
I suffered a bad calf tear while running a half marathon over a year ago. A colleague at my running club, Mow Cop Runners, recommended Kerryanne to me. I’d never had a sports massage before so really didn’t know what to expect. At my first appointment, Kerry clearly explained what I should expect and went through, in great detail, any problems I’d previously had including my medical history. Kerry made me feel at ease straight away, the treatment was initially painful but this was explained beforehand. Following my first session, Kerry gave me plenty of advice on RICE (Rest Ice Compression and Elevation) and how to treat the injury in the interim. Kerry also noticed that I had an anomaly in that I suffer from under-pronation with my right foot. I’ve since seen a physio who has also been of help to me. After a number of follow up sessions my calf injury was resolved. I’ve since used Kerry to help maintain my muscles and keep me running. Sports massage isn’t just about treating injuries, it’s really down to maintenance. Since working with Kerry, I’ve learnt a great deal about my body and how to keep myself injury free so I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kerry as she continues to be a great help to me.
I have suffered with back pain, neck pain and headaches on and off for years but just ‘put up with it’…now I’m a fitness instructor and exercising a lot, my back was beginning to seize up and the tightness in my neck and shoulders was becoming unbearable! I booked a massage with Kerryanne and found it to be AMAZING!! She managed to totally ‘loosen’ the knots and the relief was fantastic. Previously I’d only experienced beauty salon massages and would end up feeling frustrated at the lack of any positive after effects, now I can relax and feel confident that Kerryanne will improve any pain or tightness…plus its unbelievable value!! I have made many recommendations to my fitness bootcamp and class attendees and will continue to do so….miss this, MISS OUT!
I was having continual problems with my back so I went to see Kerry. It had been causing me a lot of pain and I was having problems sleeping. I couldn’t really attribute the pain to anything in particular, but she went through list of possible causes and ways I could make adjustments to my desk at work and exercises I could do to help keep it loosened up. I had a deep tissue muscle massage and have never felt so liberated. She went straight to the problem and even found areas I hadn’t realised were locked up. I would definitely recommend her!
I went for a Sports Massage with Kerryanne. Wow!! I didn’t realise how much I needed it. I am a regular runner and had never had a sports massage before. I was expecting it to be just an easy massage but Kerryanne worked those knotted muscles for a long time. I was also given lots of advice too on stretching etc. Kerryanne took a full history from me before she began the massage and I felt really confident that she knew exactly where my troublesome areas were. After the massage, I felt good the next time I ran and by body felt refreshed. Think I need to go back to have another massage soon!!!
Having had a bad 6 months with various running related injuries I was recommended to visit Kerryanne. After a couple of sports massages my strains, especially my troublesome piriformis were gone! Kerryanne has given me great advice with regards to stretching and so impressed have I been that I have passed on her details to my clubmates. Kerryanne offers a professional service at a bargain price!!
