Sports Massage & Soft Tissue Therapy

The soft tissues of the body refer to muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. Maintenance of soft tissues requires management, manipulation, prehabilitation & rehabilitation to any individual regardless of whether they are involved in sport or not.

Our sessions very often differ from a general sports massage in a number of ways, firstly our clients are not all from a sporting background, Secondly, in your soft tissue therapy session, a variety of other techniques may be used to provide appropriate treatment. These techniques include: Muscle Energy Techniques (MET), Soft Tissue Release (STR), Assisted Stretching, Deep Tissue Friction, Myofascial Release and Joint Mobilisation. We will also check anatomical alignments of the pelvis, shoulder girdle and look for any spinal deviations which may be causing other issues. We will always mobilise Feet, Ankles, Shoulders, Elbows, Wrists, Hands & Fingers as our standard protocol, before moving onto other areas.

The manipulation of soft tissue brings great relief to many who are suffering from postural dysfunction. We can see the results very quickly. Once the soft tissue starts to release, this will allow the bones to move back into their correct position, in return decrease pain and improve range of movement.

The benefits of our treatments are endless and felt by everyone

Motion Aid Sports Massage Therapist

About Me

Hello, my name is Vincent and I am a Soft Tissue Therapist in Deddington, Oxfordshire.

After a number of years working in Formula One, I decided it was time for a change of career path. Following numerous injuries of my own, I wanted to understand how the human body worked and how I could become pain-free.

In 2010 I began studying the human body to enable me to assess peoples injuries and helping them with rehabilitation. My aim was simple; to help others avoid the pain that I had experienced in the past.

Motion Aid runs daytime and evening clinics at Stone Cottage Clinic in Deddington.

The Motion Aid mission is to reinstate range of motion which will allow people to use their bodies to its maximum potential and live a pain-free life.

Whether you are into sports or not our treatments will enhance your well being and quality of life. Awake or asleep our bodies can easily fall into a bad posture. In this case, strained areas of the body cause pain, pain can then causes dysfunction due to compensation.

After an initial assessment, we will tailor a treatment for your specific needs, then give you continued support moving forward. Very common issues we see are Sciatica which is pain shooting down the leg. Assorted neck and back issues caused by anything from heavy lifting too spending to much time in the car or at the computer.

We will always do our best to help you become pain-free.

Professional Services

Our treatments are important to anyone who wants to enhance their well being.

Sports Professionals or Corporate Professionals it’s all about performance, functionality and mindset. At a sporting event treatments can enhance your performance and limit injury.

In the office much the same if you are pain-free and aware of your own body then you will perform better, have more energy with a great mindset.
