Dee provided high quality sports massage and a great soft tissue plan to help speed recovery during my marathon training. She is knowledgeable and intuitive on how to enhance recovery and athletic performance through massage treatment.
I would highly recommend Dee for both Recovery and Rehabilitation benefits. I first starting seeing Dee 3 months post an ACL reconstruction. She was fabulous, very welcoming and easy to chat with and she really listens to what and where I was feeling tight or pain. She was extremely proactive when investigating the causes behind any pain or tightness. But don’t be fooled by this sweet, soft approach Dee can dig hard (which is exactly what you need when training 8-9 times a week) into those areas of need to ensure she is giving the best possible treatment but at the same time ensuring you are comfortable with it too. She professional, approachable and most importantly trustworthy with any treatment given. I can not recommend Dee highly enough.
Since my acl reconstruction surgery dee has helped my recovery post op incredibly. After my stitches were removed her treatments really assisted in the reduction of the swelling, allowing me to work harder with my physio rehab. As I progressed with my rehab Dee was amazing at keeping an eye on how my body was responding to the muscular imbalances and maintaining my back injury ongoing so it didn't affect my surgery rehab. Without this treatment I would not have been able to recover as quickly as I have. She treats the whole body and looks at the overall picture which is so rare to find in a therapist.
As a professional golfer, the work Dee has done has been crucial in allowing me to maintain good mobility and preventing any unnecessary stress on my body. Without Dee’s help, I know for certain my body wouldn’t move as well as it does and I’m extremely grateful for her ongoing work! She has also helped me regain good range of movement following a wrist injury. From head to toe, when it comes to sports massage therapy, Dee is number 1!

The fascia is a continuous web of tissue that covers the entire body, under the skin and surrounds individual muscles and groups of muscles. Myofascial restrictions are not shown on standard tests such as x-rays, CT scans or MRI scans, which means they are rarely diagnosed as the cause of chronic pain conditions. However, they may be described as adhesions. People with fascial restrictions are often prescribed medication such as anti-inflammatory drugs which will have no effect. Myofascial release techniques free up these restrictions.
Kinesiology taping techniques run interference on pain signals which are directed to the brain, which reduces the sensation of pain, hence turning down the pain level. It decompresses swelling and inflammation by a microscopic lifting effect underneath the skin and between the many layers. It can attenuate muscle fatigue, help normalize muscle tone whilst distributing the physical stress, allowing full movement but distributing force through other nearby areas through the fascia, ligaments, and even bones.
