Colchester Sports Massage Therapist

Naturally, choosing the right Sports Massage Therapist is essential for a successful rehabilitation, but today more and more people are also turning to sports massage to improve their overall quality of life and wellbeing, with the results leaving you feeling re-energised and raring to go.  Sports massage helps keep your muscles healthy, vastly increasing and improving the circulation while also building up those muscles that may have wasted, even during periods of extended rest or restricted work.

Sports Massage

Sports massage should play a very important part in any athlete’s training programme alongside warming up and cooling down.

Through massage we can remove the build up of general aches and pains that we seem to accept due to gradual increase and intensity from our programmes and then seek to suppress it through drugs. So, benefits of sports massage lie in injury prevention.

Sports Massage is the scientific manipulation of soft tissue for injury prevention and therapeutic purposes. Also involving the restoration of the various structures of the body.

Sports Massage/Soft Tissue Therapy is being used more and more due to everyday Repetitive Strain, Overuse injuries, Work related injuries, tension and NOT just for sporting or active people.


In our lives we have BOTH, Positive and Negative stress and they are both important to our aspects of life and the effects it has on the body.

No discussion of either the highest quality of life or of serious health problems is complete without including all the considerations of stress.

Therapeutic Massage

Today, once again, the therapeutic value of massage is at long last being recognized. For it is regaining its rightful place in the health care today and being added as an alternative treatment, which in turn helps maintain a positive health.

Massage may be defined as the scientific manipulation of the body tissues performed with the hands for therapeutic purposes. It has both a physiological and psychological effect.

“The level of service that I received was very professional. Having been a customer for many years, I am consistently impressed by the professionalism from Sonia. Even though I don’t live near her anymore, whenever I am down her way on business I always book in for a Sports Massage and would just like to say. Thank you for helping me treat my aches and pains!”

“In this day and age, it’s hard to find a company you can trust. Wellness In Leisure & Exercise Systems was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the quality of service I received was outstanding. Keep up the good work!”
Karen, Essex
I had a course of deep tissue massage treatments with Sonia and found that I not only regained mobility back but also my lower back issues were put at bay and I found for the first time in a long time, I could actually sleep well at night. She is a true professional and will only recommend the right amount of treatments you require. I couldn’t believe how quickly I got results. I know this is not indicative to every body but I have to say I was overjoyed with the results I got, hence I book in on a regular basis to make sure it stays that way. Thank you Sonia for all your hard work.

I think the easiest way to describe my thoughts on Sonia’s ability is to say that I now live in Preston (North west england) and would more than happily drive to the other end of the country for a massage, in my job I have been lucky enough to travel the world and have had massage in some of the best establishments in the world as I worked for a very rich individual so only stayed in the best places. I can honestly say that I have never found anyone who even comes close to a massage from Sonia, I personally have a deep tissue massage due to huge tension in my back neck and shoulders, and normally when I ask for this I get a reasonable massage but leave feeling I need another one as it’s never really enough. Sonia however actually does do a deep tissue when that’s what you ask for, and actually gets all the knots out! I honestly couldn’t recommend her enough, do not waste your time or money going to anyone else.
