Sports Massage is not suitable for everyone as there are certain medical conditions that would make sports massage unsuitable or unsafe, you will be screened for suitability prior to treatment commencing. If the therapist is unable to treat you, you will not be charged.
You will be expected to undress to underwear as we apply massage lotion directly to the skin. We use towels to maintain your modesty at all times. If this poses a problem for you or makes you feel uncomfortable, please discuss this with the therapist as many massage techniques can be performed through clothing if required.

Please wear conventional underwear. We advise wearing shorts and a tight-fitting top for the postural assessment at your first appointment with us.
