Woke up on a Saturday morning struggling to move as I’d done something to my back.
Googled anywhere near me that could do a sports massage that day and found these little heroes!
Stuart managed to fit me in for a physio appointment/sports massage within 3 hours and was lovely.
Felt so much better afterwards and it was very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend! Worth every penny!
This was my first sports massage.
I wasn’t quite sure what to really expect or if it would actually help my stiff and painful neck/shoulder. It helped massively.
After my session with Ross, who was friendly and experienced, I had way more movement and much less pain which meant I could drive again. Thank you, Ross, you worked wonders.
Had a sports massage with Health by Science, the first time I’ve ever had a massage and it was great.
Professional service, good facilities and quite straight up – no incense sticks or anything! Will go back for sure and would definitely recommend.
I booked an appointment with Health by Science after hearing great things.
I’ve had one appointment and fully understand why they’re highly regarded. I was immediately greeted by courteous and professional staff and assessed by the very knowledgeable Ross.
He explained the reasons why I was tight and experiencing pain while performing the sports massage. After our session, I felt the obvious benefits in my movement and flexibility. He offered aftercare be providing information on how to prevent reoccurring issues.
I highly recommend Health by Science.
MEET YOUR THERAPISTS
Hi, I’m Marisa, one of the sports massage therapists at Health by Science. I have a keen interest in health and wellbeing, and am passionate about helping others stay active and feeling good!
Since gaining a Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy I have worked with a variety of people, of differing ages and activity levels. This has allowed me to establish a person-centred approach for administering therapy, follow up care and activity recommendations. I also have experience working with athletes, providing treatments for sports injury rehabilitation and guidance on injury prevention strategies.
Hi I’m Ross and I made a switch from working in a corporate environment to pursue a career to work with people.
Since qualifying as a Sports Massage Therapist I have worked with a variety of patients with different issues from working with patients with chronic pain to athletes recovering from injury.
I’m currently finishing the 2nd year of my undergraduate degree in Podiatry from Queen Margret University. I’ve got a keen interest in muscular-skeletal injuries and helping patients return to an active lifestyle.
It’s fair to say my coaching style and approach has proven to be adaptable & extensive – much like my joke library. If you would like to work with a coach who takes a person-centred approach and will help you achieve your goals with the most efficient & effective method – then get in touch.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I expect?
At the beginning of the appointment, your therapist will take you through a short consultation to allow you to share any medical conditions and information you think is useful to us- as well as ask any questions you might have.
You will be asked to describe areas of concern you might have and demonstrate any movement restrictions. We may also ask you to do some simple movement tests to assess and explore any problems you are having. This helps us to understand your requirements and establish the best treatment for you.
We then use soft-tissue massage at a pressure tailored for you and target the areas where you need it the most. After the treatment, you may notice an improvement straight away, but it may take a couple of days to feel the benefits. If your treatment was deep-tissue, some people might feel slight discomfort in the muscles before you feel an improvement- don’t worry, this is completely normal.
We may also show you therapeutic exercises specific to you and your symptoms, that will help you both short and long term with your symptoms.
What should I wear?
We use towels during our treatments to ensure you are properly covered and comfortable at all times.
We suggest you wear/bring comfortable clothing that is easy to remove and that you don’t mind potentially getting massage oil on.
If you would like your lower body massaged then loose-fitting shorts are the best idea. If you have long hair please bring something to tie your hair back if we are working on the upper back/neck area.
Are Health by Science qualified to give health advice?
When it comes to becoming qualified to work in the health and fitness industry, the entry-level is set pretty low as coaches with zero experience can become qualified in 6 weeks. What makes Health by Science different is that we go above and beyond this required entry-level by some margin. Our therapists have completed their Sports Massage Diploma courses.
But these qualifications don’t mean anything without the practical application and experience to back it up. So what really makes our coaches different, is their ability to use all of this experience and education and apply it in a treatment programme that is tailored to your exact goals and preferences.
Are you COVID secure?
At HBS we put the safety of our clients as our main priority. Therefore with the current pandemic, we have increased our precautions. Our massage therapists will be wearing full PPE equipment, including face mask and apron. The treatment bed is covered with disposable paper towels to lower infection risk. Our treatment room is cleaned before and after client sessions with disinfectant. You will be provided with towels during sessions which are cleaned after each use.
We ask clients to turn up for their appointment as close to their agreed time as possible to help limit crossover. You may be asked to wait outside for a short time if there are too many people in the facility. We also ask all clients to wash their hands when entering the facility in our bathroom. Clients will be provided with a face mask if they do not have one, which is to be worn throughout the treatment. After the treatment, we ask clients to once again wash their hands on leaving the facility.
Can I have a male or female therapist?
At HBS we have two Sport Massage Therapists, one male and one female. Both of our therapists provide professional, highly skilled treatments to ensure clients receive the highest service.
However, we understand that some clients may have a preference for one of the therapists. In this case, clients are able to choose which therapist they would prefer by selecting the therapist above.
