Massage osteopathy


Professional massage at The Hatfield Practice starts with a detailed medical case history. Treatment will be considered by taking  your medical history details. Previous problems will be taken into account.

Sports massage treatment for example typically involves deep soft tissue work along specific muscles and re invigorates nerve pathways and has many documented benefits. Massage tends to release muscular reflexes and tissue shortening ( stiffness) that can lead to fibrosis, deep muscle pain and stiffness. The massage provides an amazing sense of lightness, freedom of movement and may help to reduce further injuries.

Of course  mobilisation of the spine (helping the central control of the whole body), articulation  of peripheral joints and soft-tissue work including reflex and trigger point therapy and neuro–release techniques to improve the tensions thorough the neuro system which often lead to pulled tissue disc, joint and nerve injuries.

Sports/Deep Soft Tissue Massage

Our Hatfield  Sports massage therapy is a form of deep soft tissue manipulation that uses several specific techniques to treat physically active individuals, anyone involved in heavy-duty physical activities and sport performance. Some people  are  more vulnerable to injury because of the stresses placed on their body by exertion both mental and physical.

Sports massage can relieve niggling aches and pains before they develop into more serious overuse injuries. It can also be great for post event relaxation and recovery. A brilliant  way to relieve stress, tension and fatigue. Sports massage is generally used to provide rehabilitation from soft tissue injury, maintain muscular conditioning and joint flexibility for competition and flexibility maximising athletic performance therefore potential. In addition deep tissue massage  eases the effects caused by severe exercise such as muscular  myofascial shortening. Restrictions in your body’s contractile (muscle) and non-contractile supportive (fascia) connective tissues (Deep Tissue Pain) that no one seems to get too!

Massage can help you to  keep your body flexible, aid your performance and assist you in rehabilitation from injuries and help you stay stress free and comfortable. We are also very happy to provide sports, Medical, Swedish and deep soft tissue massage with our massage specialists  at The Welwyn and Hatfield Practice.

Body and Soul healing at The Welwyn and Hatfield Practice  means taking a genuinely  holistic approach to health.

Perhaps your  seeking  treatment for discomfort  or choosing to live a more balanced lifestyle.


What primarily distinguishes holistic healing apart from alternative, complementary or integrative medicine is that your physical health is not necessarily the main focus. Even so for most of us  it  is often the experience of physical or emotional pain  and discomfort that will first prompt a interest and search for wellness the essence of holistic healing.

It is true that our pains and other physical discomforts demand our attention they shout loudly or complain to us they let us know there not happy. Therefore it really is difficult to ignore the obvious when we are physically hurting. Common sense often in the form of pain tells us that we should seek help to alleviate our discomforts.

Holistic healing is not an “alternative” to conventional medical care but aims to support and re- energise and balance long before the disease process manifests. Sometimes going to a medical professional  is the best solution to  dis-ease. Unfortunately when when the body is influenced in a strong manner by chemical based drugs there can be side effects that may cause further imbalance.

Physical illnesses are really the manifestation of a greater imbalance that often has often taken a long time to develop through many episodes  over many years. In part “burn out”, chronic fatigue or metabolic diseases  may or may not have a root cause in the physical.

Holistic or “wholistic” healing addresses all parts of the individual, body and spirit.  Not just the physical aspect of a person where manifested illnesses are most apparent we look wider and possibly deeper into who you are and the ways you live. Holistic healing is not intended to serve as a band-aid or a one time fix. It is an ongoing journey of discovery in search of more answers and ultimately; living better, being healthier and striving for wholeness and well being.
