Sports massage loosens tired, stiff muscles; helps maintain flexibility; promotes blood flow to the muscle to remove lactic acid and waste build-up; and reduces cramping, and aid in breaking down scar tissue.

Massage Therapy helps to maintain healthy muscle, connective tissue, normal range of motion, high energy levels, pain free movement mental calm, alertness and concentration.

The goal of all sports massage is to maximize athletic performance. For those of you who striving to enhance their sporting achievements or maybe starting in a new sporting venture, running a marathon or long distance cycle ride we can put you in touch with performance coaches who can assist with your training schedules.

And for those who do not actively take part in sport, we offer remedial massage and soft tissue release techniques for treating the neck, shoulders   back and leg problems.

We have experience in treating those of you who suffer from chronic pain fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Myofacial disorders, ME and MS, and we can prescribe a rehab programme for those of you recovering from injury of broken bones.

Stress-related disorders make up between 80-and-90 percent of the ailments that bring people to family-practice physicians.

One of the complaints we often hear that physiotherapists do not give ‘hands on treatment’ to their patients, and not able to allow time to listen to their concerns. We at Overtones are prepared to listen, advise and offer caring hands on treatments.

We believe massage therapy is absolutely paramount in the healing process because of the relief it brings to any client of any age, young or old. We here at Overtones understand our clients needs and can offer a listening ear and a relaxing massage to ease away those aches and pains and help you to unwind from the stresses of modern day life.

Relaxation treatments with Jane can be for one hour or more, and can be tailored to suit your needs, call us for more details.

Combined with tropical massage oil, these marine polished sea shells glide smoothly over the back, and with their soothing heat are perfect for men or women that want deep tissue work, as they help release muscle tension, unblock energy flow, and leave you feeling rejuvenated.

The Lava Shell Tummy Treatment is natural colonic and ideal for anyone suffering from IBS and bloating. This treatment uses the heated lava shells to massage the abdominal area and improve the functioning of the digestive system. The combination of soothing heat and gentle massage stimulates the body’s natural systems to effectively eliminate toxins and reduce bloating. This treatment will leave you feeling comfortable, rejuvenated and with the added benefit of a flatter tummy which lasts for days.

What the experts say:

“The treatment was amazing - one of the best I have had, and I’ve had a few! I loved the texture and heat of the shells, which I felt allowed for some really deep work, especially around the stomach area which often lacks this special attention in massages. I left feeling totally shifted in mind and body."

Jill Cartwright, Women’s Fitness Writer


“Lava Shells are among the most innovative products in the spa today with this cutting edge technology I see virtually no limits to the application of this product.”

Spa Director


“This is hands-down the best treatment I’ve had.”

Hivamat Deep Oscillation

What is Deep Oscillation Therapy?

Deep Oscillation therapy is a totally unique form of physical therapy. It is used by doctors and therapists in hospitals and clinics throughout Europe and America, and is now available in the UK. Deep Oscillation therapy is characterised by an intermittent electro-static field, which is built up between the hands of the therapist or an applicator attachment and the soft tissue of the patient, by means of the Hivamat machine. The patient’s tissue is then attracted and released in the selected frequency, which through a unique patented process triggers a deeply penetrating and lasting resonance, (DEEP OSCILLATION) of the treated tissues. What makes this form of therapy unique is that it penetrates much deeper into body tissue than traditional manual methods thus allowing previously 'untreatable' injuries to be manipulated with the minimum of physical pressure. Electrostatic waves create a 'kneading' effect deep within the damaged tissues, restoring flexibility and blood supply to the affected area.
