“Working with Rich has been hugely influential to my business, his creative mind helped to bring my ideas to life and brought ideas I had never thought of into the fold. Rich is great with meeting deadlines, even the ones sprung on him at the last minute. His passion and dedication to his craft really comes across in his work and I am grateful to have him working with Xplore Lifestyle regularly. He is also incredibly patient and puts up with my constant emails and changes, I would implore you to work with Rich on any and every opportunity you have”

Sports & Remedial Massage
Massage is a treatment that has evolved from the instinctive and reflex reaction to rub something that hurts. As a result, there are many forms, schools of thought and qualifications that can be described as massage. The focus of a massage therapist is to restore function of soft tissues, including muscles, skin, ligaments and fascia. This is achieved by applying direct pressure in differing directions influencing blood flow, nerves and the muscle fibres.
Remedial massage aims to address aches and pains that arise from day to day life whether it be a stiff neck, those crunchy shoulders or achy lower back. Remedial massage works to get things moving and finding some balance.
A massage therapist will also give advice on rehabilitation and exercises to maintain performance or prevent further injury. When applied to sport, massage can be used both pre and post event. It has been shown to help improve sporting performance and its psychological effects cannot be underestimated. Sports massage is the perfect complement to a training program. Whether it be training for a marathon, triathlon or merely keeping fit, sports massage can help you be at your best. We also have a fully qualified Sports Therapist on site for those who require this specialised service.
