Simon Wintle - Soft Tissue Therapy


More than just sports massage, Soft Tissue Therapy is the assessment, treatment and management of soft tissue injury, pain and dysfunction. Soft Tissue Therapy treats the muscles, connective tissue/fascia, tendons, ligaments and joints. Whether caused through sport or any other lifestyle factor, the aim is to treat problematic areas by manipulating the soft tissue using massage and other advanced techniques. It also aims to identify the underlying causes of the injury and offer more long-term improvements in physical wellbeing and injury prevention.

  • Restore mobility to injured muscle tissue
  • Relieve stiffness, aches and pains and all over fatigue

Advanced Techniques


  • Muscle Energy Techniques – a manual therapy technique which aims to restore musculoskeletal and joint function
  • Soft Tissue Release – is an advanced massage technique widely used in assessing and stretching soft tissues; muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments
  • Neuromuscular Muscular Techniques – Therapy is the utilisation of static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body to balance the central nervous system

Kinesiology Taping

  • Stabilises the area without restricting the movement like conventional athletic tape
  • Relaxes, and can offload, overused and overstrained muscles
  • Accelerates blood flow to the injured area to speed up the healing process
  • Reduces oedema by removal of lymphatic fluid

Injury Management

Simon Wintle - Injury ManagementSoft tissue therapy is a highly effective tool to restore normal function following injury, support the healing process and speed up recovery. Post injury, it is important that a carefully planned and progressive rehabilitation program is followed to enable optimal recovery and a return to sport, or indeed everyday activities.

Post injury the body goes through a sequential healing process and in order to restore full function and strength to the affected area it is essential that a protocol is followed. This includes:

  • Reduction of swelling
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Helping to breakdown scar tissue
  • Restoring full range of movement
  • Muscle activation and conditioning (motor re-education)
  • Flexibility and strengthening
  • Correction of abnormal biomechanics
  • Neuromuscular control (balance proprioception)
  • Maintenance and building cardiovascular fitness
