Our massage therapist, Jo, specialises in deep tissue restorative treatments to relieve pain and reduce muscle tension. Massage therapy promotes recovery and helps restore balance. It gives the body a chance to unwind, reduces stress and promotes a sense of well-being.
Jo qualified ten years ago from the Clare Maxwell-Hudson School of Massage, one of the country’s leading massage training centres. Since then, Jo has specialised in Deep Tissue and Remedial massage, attending numerous courses at the JING Institute of Advanced Massage Training. Certificates include Living Anatomy, Working with the Spine, Treating Hip and Pelvis Pain and Treating Leg, Knee and Foot Pain.
Each treatment is tailored to your individual needs whether it be pre-race, post-race or to ease muscle fatigue during intensive training schedules. The treatment is hands-on focusing on warming the area, lengthening tissues and increasing blood flow which brings oxygen and nutrients to help repair damaged tissues.
Treatments also work on a psychological level giving you a chance to relax and unwind. Jo works in a slow and soothing manner to release deep tissue and relieve tension.
30-minute treatments can focus on one specific area and are effective on a superficial level to relieve muscle tension and increase blood flow.
60-minute deep tissue treatments target either the upper back, neck and shoulders or lower back and legs, or can be tailored to focus on the areas that require special attention to relieve pain and improve performance.
90-minute treatments are available for a full body deep tissue restorative massage.

"I have benefitted greatly from Jo's exceptional level of sports massage treatment to maintain the training volume required competing as a Pro at Ironman distance triathlon. Jo has a comprehensive understanding of soft tissue release techniques and experience to identify individual requirements within each session, invaluable to ensure continuity in training. What I most value about Jo's approach is her level of experience as an athlete, ensuring you don't suffer bruising or excessive painful deep manipulation of muscles and injury sites which impact significantly on recovery and detract from the quality of subsequent training sessions after a treatment. Understanding how to facilitate recovery with sports massage is absolutely essential for anyone serious about their sport, competing at a high level or recovering from injury! I recommend Jo to the athletes I work with as a full-time Professional Triathlon coach. "
Fiona Ford – Founder of Triathlon Europe
"Jo is brilliant at ironing out niggles before they become injuries without leaving you feeling too sore to put in quality training. She delivered me to the Ironman startline in the tip top condition that helped me to nail a PB. A class act.
Zoe Catchpole – Ironman Vichy 2016 in 10.49.05 (AG 7th)
"I see Jo regularly, her treatments are effective at relieving muscle fatigue from intensive training. I find that my muscles feel fresher when I get back in the pool the day after treatment. Jo also works on aches and pains that set in from postural stresses due to my busy workload whether I am travelling a lot or spending long periods of time in front of a laptop.
