During the first treatment, new clients will be required to have a brief consultation. You can save some time by filling in a consent form before your appointment. It is imperative to establish any current health issues and/or underlying medical conditions prior to commencing hands-on treatment. During this session a subjective consent form will be completed, along with a brief physical assessment. Therapy and massage can begin during this first treatment session (subject to no contra-massage indications). From this session, a treatment plan is tailored to the individual’s functional, occupational and/or sport specific fitness. This might include a program of stretches, exercises and recommendations to consider, with an idea as to where treatment is headed.
At the start of every injury follow-up session, you will be asked a few questions with regards to any improvements made, new complaints and any positive or negative reactions to the previous treatment. This should usually only take a matter of five minutes, but is essential to ensure that the treatment and rehabilitation plan is best suited to the individual.
You don’t need to be injured to make an appointment. If you just need a massage treatment to loosen off tight muscles then feel free to give us a call.
Mobile Service Available
£15 Extra up to 10 mile radius. Call for a quotation if further afield.
If you’ve suffered an injury and need immediate treatment, please call and me’ll try to accommodate you on the same day.
However, if you just need a general massage, sports therapy massage, kinesio taping, strapping of an injury before a game, give Achilles Healers Sports Therapy (Whitefield) a call.
During the sports therapy treatment it is preferable that you wear a pair of shorts (and for females a standard-fixing bra) to improve access to the whole body. This allows for a clearer visual postural assessment and for treatment of the thoracic spine during palpation. Large towels are used to ensure that only the part under treatment will ever be exposed, and the rest of the body will be covered by the towels to keep you warm and comfortable at all times.
I received treatment from Richard for plantar fasciitis - he is professional, informative & very friendly. He also followed up my treatment with self help exercises. Thanks to Richard I'm now pain free!!
A fantastic and professional service which correctly diagnosed and treated my shoulder and neck discomfort. Richard also advised certain post treatment exercises to prevent the problem recurring.
Very professional, knowledgeable and thorough, I have been using Achilles Healers Sports Therapy to fix a sprained foot, and excellent results so far. I would highly recommend to anyone needing any niggles or injuries sorted!
Professional and cheery throughout both sessions, helped alot with my leg pain and would highly recommend him to anyone with the same problem
A very professional service, from online booking through to aftercare, Richard certainly knows his stuff. He is very thorough in assessing the whole body, not just your injury. His aftercare advice is also excellent. Highly recommended.
I went to Richard for shoulder and back pain and he worked wonders! Brilliant treatment and he also gave me some stretches to do at home which have been working well in between treatments, thank you!
I constantly struggle with neck and back pain and have been thrilled by the level of treatment I have received. Even when I go away, I have received information on how to self treat in between treatments.
