Custom Tailored Planning for Your Specific Needs
What we do for each patient:
Recovery from injury, reduce pain & stiffness, and increase mobility!
Physiotherapy healthcare assesses, diagnoses, treats, and works to prevent dysfunction and disability through physical means. We are University trained experts in human movement and function and work with you to assist in overcoming movement disorders. These disorders may have been present from birth, acquired through accident or injury, or are the result of ageing or life-changing events.
As Physios, we can also help you prevent further injury by listening to your needs and working with you to plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition, including setting goals, treatment outcomes and demonstrating rehabilitation exercises.
Sports Massage Specialists
Boost your performance, reduce fatigue, and relieve muscle swelling & tension.
Sports massage is a more vigorous style of massage and aims to increase blood flow to muscles and is designed to prepare the athlete for their best performance, reduce fatigue, and relieve muscle swelling and tension.
Heavily exercised muscles may also lose their capacity to relax, which causes chronically tight muscles and loss of flexibility. This lack of flexibility is often linked to muscle soreness and predisposes to injuries. Sports Massage helps reduce and prevent the often painful and debilitating effects of DOMS (delayed onset of muscle soreness).
Integrated into training, your muscles will relax and revitalise, and you’ll feel calmer and more focused before and after events.
Remedial Massage Specialists
Deeper therapy to a specific problem area rather than an all over body massage.
Remedial Massage treatment aims to reverse the negative physical effects of pain and discomfort you may be experiencing.
A remedial massage is designed to balance muscle length, tension and tone which will in turn will promote the return of normal joint, capsular and bone position. The increase in the flow of blood and lymph fluid, particularly to injured areas, heals muscles and removes blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury and dysfunction. Remedial massage reduces stress, heightens mental alertness, improves posture and is paramount in escaping the vicious cycle of chronic complaints.
Pregnancy Massage Specialists
Alleviate pain without trying to force your body back to its usual position.
Pregnancy massage promotes relaxation, soothes nerves, and relieves strained back and leg muscles in expectant mums. It is a great way to reduce stress and promote overall wellbeing and it is especially beneficial in the second and third trimesters when the extra weight in your belly puts a strain on your back and neck. A pregnancy massage is generally slower and more soothing. Due to the crazy changes your body is already experiencing, our job is to alleviate pains without trying to force your body back to its usual position.
It eases neck and back pain, leg cramps, headaches, swelling, helps you to keep good posture and relaxes and provides flexibility to birthing muscles. Prenatal massage provides relaxation by relieving stress on joints and also aids the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which keeps blood flowing to both the mother and the baby. Postnatal massage is also very beneficial and can help restore your body to its pre-pregnancy condition. It helps relieve neck and back pain you may experience from breast feeding and bending over lifting your new little gift.
Facilitates quick recovery, reduces pain, promotes movement
If you have been injured at work, playing sport or just doing something as simple as picking up the cat, your body may need some rehabilitation training. A rehab program facilitates a quick recovery, reduces pain, promotes movement, restores normal function and prevents recurring damage to the injury.
Post surgery, we will work with your Doctor or Orthopaedic Physician, trainer or other therapists you use to achieve the best outcome for you situation. Rehab focuses on various physical activities, strength and flexibility exercises. This will help regain the range and motion of the injury or operation site. We will show you the correct techniques so you do not re-injure yourself, and devise an exercise plan with you to optimise your healing.
Permanently reduce muscle pain and dysfunction.
Trigger Point Dry Needling is a treatment technique, which uses small filament type needles to release tight muscles with the goal of permanently reducing muscle pain and dysfunction. Manual Therapists around the world are now using this technique to effectively treat acute and chronic orthopedic and musculoskeletal conditions.
Our Physiotherapist Adam Smyth is fully qualified in trigger point dry needling and continuously assists with his patients rehabilitation and pain.
Dry needling is a very safe form of treatment, in our clinic we are trained in using a safe and clean technique. We fully steralise the area of the patient and use packaged, single use needles.

Hear what our patients have to say about us.
In December 2009 my personal trainer recommended me to get a massage from Adam Smyth, at Wellbeing Sports Massage, after constant complaining about my bad knees, lower back and neck issues. After my first massage, I walked away thinking – “that was the best massage I’ve ever had”. For more than 15 years I’ve seen Physios, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Podiatrist and Acupuncture; you name it, I’ve tried it. Since seeing Adam, I’ve never looked back, my body feels free from constant daily pain. I’ve found Adam to be extremely professional, friendly, caring and remarkably talented at his profession. I would not hesitate to recommend Adam to my friends and colleagues. I wish Adam a wonderful and successful career in Sports Massage and Physiotherapy.
I was referred to Wellbeing Sports Massage 2 years ago after my Soccer Coach told me that if I didn’t get my body fixed, I wouldn’t have long to play for the team. I had a lot of niggling injuries from Soccer that took several days to recover from, and was affecting my day job as a builder. Regular sessions with Adam have meant better movement and shorter recovery times after games and training. And whilst I am getting slower, the team has commented on how much better my game is. At 37 I am still playing first grade, putting in a full weeks work, and have no plans to slow down
Sarah has helped me understand my body and how much it needs to be looked after. She has second to none knowledge and experience in treating athletes of all capabilities. Being an athlete herself she not only relates to you on a conversational level, but can have you back in training fast by getting straight to the problem areas, whether it be muscle release or neglected muscle groups lacking strength. Sarah practices with an air of relaxed professionalism of which I cannot speak more highly of. If your goal is getting to races in prime shape or just ensuring all is in working order then you need look any further.
I have been going to Sarah Fletcher for remedial massage for the past 3 years. I have found Sarah to be very knowledgeable and up to date in her subject, and she continues to refresh and add to her knowledge through on-going education. She is both very pleasant and fully professional in her approach to her work. In addition, the fact that Sarah is an athlete at a high level means that she understands the needs and problems encountered by other athletes (I am a marathon runner), and so she helps to keep me running. I am happy to recommend Sarah to anyone in need of remedial massage.
A re-occurring injury had seen me suffer from a prolapsed disc in my back. The administrative work that I do, coupled with over training, has meant that I often suffer from bad back pain, and the sleepless nights that go with it. After a couple of sessions with Adam, I defiantly noticed a difference. I found his approach to be professional and unique, as he had a holistic approach to my problem, not just focussing on my injury. Thanks to his treatment, I am able to enjoy a fuller life that is relatively pain free. I still see Adam as a preventative measure, to avoid re-occurrence of my injury. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to live a happier, pain free existence.
Sarah is extremely knowledgeable, and a highly trained therapist. A massage from Sarah is completely different compared to one from a person who has little or no understanding of anatomy. She is able to provide me with a wide range of benefits from healing injuries to relaxing pre-race massages. I have always felt comfortable, cared for and safe with her. I can finally stop hunting around for a massage therapist I trust!
