Appointment Length

Sports massage/massage therapy/ choosing your appointment length

Our massage appointments are entirely tailored to the individual on the day. We will take some information, have a chat about what you would like from the treatment and then work accordingly

Everyone is different and so everyone one of our treatments is slightly different.

15 minutes seated chair - Short of time? Need a quick fix for an achy shoulder, stiff neck or ouchy feet? Then choose our 15 minute seated chair massage option. We work through clothing so no need to shed any layers. We try to offer some of these for 'on the day', 'walk in' appointments too so pop in if you are passing. Our 15 min seated chair massage appointments are good for a neck & shoulders or feet and lower legs quick fix.

30 Minutes - Need us to work a bit more specifically or need a follow up appointment? Then book a 30 min session; this would normally be in one of our treatment rooms but we can offer seated chair if you would prefer. We will absolutely tailor the appointments for what you need on the day. Our 30 minute appointments can be used for Massage Therapy or Soft Tissue Therapy.

45 Minutes - Our 45 min treatments in our therapeutic, relaxing treatment rooms are perfect for when there are a few different areas to work on. They allow enough time talk to you and discuss your treatment, to work effectively with your body to get you feeling the best we can that day. Our 45 minute appointments can be used for Massage Therapy, Soft Tissue Therapy or Myofascial Release.

60 Minutes - Our one hour sessions are recommended for first time appointments. They allow enough time for an assessment, talk about the treatment and a lot of hands on time allowing us to do some general work and to work more specifically into some areas and maybe show you some stretches or exercises if needed at the end of the session. Our 60 minute appointments can be used for Massage Therapy, Soft Tissue Therapy or Myofascial Release.

75 Minutes - Tailored to your needs on the day, this is our longest appointment and is great if there are a few issues or areas that need attention. It gives us the time to do some general work and also some specific work and not have to rush. Our 75 minute appointments can be used for Massage Therapy, Soft Tissue Therapy or Myofascial Release.

How to choose which treatment is best for your appointment.

Sports massage/massage therapy/deep tissue massage is a safe and effective way of working into the muscles and soft tissues. Hands on therapy either with oil on the skin or dry through clothing. Massage therapy uses a mix of techniques working methodically into the muscles and is wonderfully relaxing and very effective as pain relief. It can aid recovery and is great for injury prevention and maintenance to help you feel good for your job, your sport, during pregnancy or just for relaxation. Our therapists are trained in different techniques so no two sessions will be exactly the same. We don't really do 'set routines' here at Mountain Massage Co. We would much rather ask you what you want from the treatment and work accordingly. Hazel Clark, Louis Mackay and James Clark are trained in Sports Massage & Massage Therapy. See our Therapist section for more details.

Soft Tissue Therapy is still very much 'hands on'. We use a lot of different massage techniques and, also, a range of treatment options including sports & remedial massage techniques, dry needling, ultrasound, myofascial release, myofascial cupping, kinesio taping, muscle energy techniques, soft tissue release, home rehab and aftercare advice. Soft tissue therapy can very effectively help with muscular skeletal pain, postural related problems or as part of maintenance or training. It is also highly effective for sports injuries, overuse injuries, work related postural problems, during pregnancy or pre & post surgery. Your soft tissue therapist is very experienced with dealing with mobility issues and working with pre-existing medical conditions. Depending on your therapists’ specialisms they might suggest a combination of treatments. Hazel Clark is trained is all elements of Soft Tissue Therapy, Louis Mackay is trained in many different techniques. Please see our Therapist section for more details.

Podiatry - is specialist lower limb, feet and ankle care, sometimes called Chiropody. It can cover biomechanical issues with the foot and ankle or can be used for foot health and care. Foot Care & Nail Surgery Your podiatrist will assess your needs and use different types of treatment options and offer home care advice. Your podiatrist/chiropodist is highly skilled in the use of surgical tools and provides treatment and advice for hard cracked skin, corns, cracked heels, callus, verrucae, fungal nails, ingrown nails and other foot problems. Our podiatrist is trained in diabetology, rheumatology, wound healing, dermatology & vascular disease. Biomechanics your podiatrist is also trained in 'biomechanics', how your feet and ankles move. They will assess your feet and ankles and look at how they function in relation to the knees and hips to help remedy pain in the joints, tendons, muscles and ligaments. Your Podiatrist can also fit and prescribe orthotics or specialist footwear to help prevent problems and pain. Your podiatrist is well trained in infection control, everything is sterilised and cleaned. Jude Hamer is your expert Podiatrist. Please see our Therapist section for more details.

Treatments

Myofascial Release - Is a wonderfully relaxing and therapeutic hands on technique for mobilising and unwinding the fascia. Highly effective with pain, postural disfunction and conditions like fibromyalgia and TMJ problems to name just two. Fascia is all the ‘stuff’ that isn’t our muscles, bones and organs. It surrounds all our tissues and is a continuous web of highly elastic and strong tissue designed to protect us and support our body. Imagine it like a very complicated and living 3D woolly jumper. All the fascia is connected, so if you tried to unpick it you would end up with one ball of wool at the end. By working on one area we can have a release through the whole body. Your therapist will take the tissue to tension and follow the releases of the tissue, moving around the body following areas of tension. Hazel Clark is trained in slow sustained Myofascial Release with Myofascial Release UK.

Dry Needling (sometimes called Medical Acupuncture). Dry needling uses acupuncture needles to release tight, painful areas of muscle and fascia. Your highly trained therapist might use just one needle on a specific area of tissue they have felt or a few needles in a certain pattern to get an area to release. It is surprisingly un-painful, so much so you sometimes can’t feel them at all. Dry needling is great for easing tissue tension & spasm and helps to reduce pain. Occasionally you might have a little bruise mark at the needle site. Your therapists would talk to you before treatment. Hazel Clark is trained in Dry Needling/Medical Acupuncture with OMT training.

Ultrasound uses a machine directly over the specific problem area. It is painless and directs a wave into the tissue. Very simply, ultrasound can either be used to calm tissue down or stir tissue up. So, depending on what the problem is your trained therapist can either calm down an acute area of tissue or stir up a more chronic area of tissue to promote healing. Hazel Clark is trained in Ultrasound Therapy.

Myofascial Cupping is a direct fascial technique that very quickly and effectively loosens the superficial fascia layers. You will love it as you will feel very dramatic results and our therapists love it as it allows them to be in two places at once; we can use cupping on one area whilst massaging another area. You might be left with some red marks like Micheal Phelps or Gwyneth Paltrow! Fairer skin tones tend to mark a bit more. Your therapist would talk to you before treatment. Hazel Clark and Louis Mackay are trained in Cupping Therapy.

Kinesio Taping uses stretchy tape applied in a certain way to help ease pain symptoms and aid healing. It is a simple technique but very effective in reducing pain and improving function. You have probably seen it on athletes at the Olympics or Wimbledon. Hazel Clark and Louis Mackay are trained in Kinesio Taping. Jude Hamer is trained in specialist foot and ankle taping.

Pilates is all about getting our bodies to move well. It strengthens the weaker bits and lengthens the short tight bits and really gets the brain talking to the muscles to help improve our mobility and the way we move. It is a fantastic way to help avoid future muscular skeletal pain and is a wonderful compliment to other sports and activities and helps keep us strong for the jobs we do, the sports we play and the life we want to lead.
