The Benefits of Sports Therapy
The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity.Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.
It is based on the various elements of Swedish massage and often incorporates a combination of other techniques involving stretching, compression, friction, toning, and trigger point response techniques similar to Acupressure and Shiatsu.

I first found Tracey in 2004 when I was suffering from constant head aches which forced me to take pain killers all day every day.
I was amazed that Tracey was able to locate the problem on my first visit and for the first time in ages I was pain free. It really felt like she had performed a miracle.I now visit Tracey once every month and I no longer get head aches.
In the last eight years I have had lower back, hip and leg problems, trapped sciatic nerve, and more recently areas of my shoulders and neck all of which Tracy has treated to keep me mobilised. I go for treatment to Tracy once a fortnight on whatever area is the worst (I like to give her a challenge). I know that my problems will not get any better but the treatment I receive from Tracy gives me relief from the pain. One thing I do appreciate is that Tracy always explains the treatment and shows me the muscle area on the diagram that she is working on. Tracy has also recommended exercises that I can do, she definitely knows her job. I have strongly recommended people to Tracy and they have benefited from her treatments.
Been seeing Tracey for 7 years due to posture problems in my job. I wouldn’t go anywhere else…amazing treatment every time!
I have been going to Bodytech Sports & Massage Therapy for over a year now for back & leg pain. Her treatment and knowledge is amazing. I always leave feeling a different person. I’d recommend Tracey Hughes of Bodytech to anyone struggling with aches and pains, she’s passionate about what she does and that shows in the service you receive.
This woman is a genius. I swear she has x-ray vision! Absolute first class sports injury therapist. I have degenerative discs in my mid and lower back and an old injury from a coccyx fracture. Years of relying on opiate medication in order to function is hopefully coming to an end. I’ve never felt better. Tracy is a lovely person, down to earth and puts you at ease. She is so accommodating and when my neck locked a few week’s ago, she even saw me on a Saturday night… Most of all, she LISTENS to you and works with you. I seriously cannot recommend her services highly enough. I’d give fifty rating if it was possible… Thanks Trace.. keep doing what you do, as you do it so damned well!
