Anyone who is physically active, suffers from muscular aches and pains from being active or from scars or simply needs to relax, can feel the benefits of ScarWork or a Sport & Remedial Massage.
No weekend appointments are currently available
Regular practice hours are Monday to Friday, 9-1pm.
ScarWork helps release stuck layers of body tissue as it recovers and repairs following an operation or accident. The light massage helps to improve how the scar visually appears but more importantly, changing the underlying tissues to allow better function and movement. It was developed by Sharon Wheeler in America.
Remedial massage relieves aches and pains that can arise from repetitive day-to-day activities or from periods of prolonged inactivity. These include back pain, stiff necks and frozen shoulders, posture-related problems and headaches. It can also be very effective for conditions such as whiplash, sciatica, muscle-related joint problems and chronic aches and pains.
Sports massage is a valuable addition to those in training, whatever your sport. Sports massage enhances performance, ensuring that muscles are in peak condition and aiding recovery from exertion and injury. It is also effective for injury prevention and rehabilitation.
Charlotte, herself a keen athlete, has competed in several international events including the Marathon des Sables, a 150 mile foot race across the Sahara Desert. Her enthusiasm for sport and competition enables her to understand that her clients want to be in peak performing condition and enables her to provide them with the best possible care and attention.
Charlotte qualified in 2002 with a Diploma (Credit) in Sport & Remedial Massage Therapy from the prestigious London School of Sport and Remedial Massage (LSSM), establishing the Vital Hands practice the same year. Working in a relaxed environment, Charlotte tailors her treatments to suit clients’ individual needs, ensuring maximum results from a combination of massage techniques. Charlotte continues to tutor at the LSSM and is a member of the Sports Massage Association (SMA), the ISRM and the CNHC. She is also eligible to provide Sports massage therapy to British Athletics Commission (BAC) athletes.
I recommend Charlotte’s treatment for beating the day to day stresses of life, not just for those suffering from sporting injuries.

If you’re serious about performance or just want to stop the body hurting, Charlotte’s ‘Vital Hands‘ are a must.
