Sam Costley on sports therapy:

‼️ MYTH BUSTING ‼️ - Sports therapy isn't just massage and it's not just for athletes by Sam Costley

“Sports Therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.”

It’s time to de-bunk the common misconception that Sports Therapy is just sports massage! 🤔 Although massage techniques are a common treatment tool used, Sports Therapy employs thorough and complete musculoskeletal assessment, manual therapy and electro therapy techniques, exercise prescription, education and advice to get patients PAIN FREE, performing and living their life to the full!🕺🏼💃

Sports Therapy is also not JUST for the athlete or recreational gym goer! 😲 Yes, it can help elite athletes compete and excel at the highest level but it can also help those who want to pick up their toddler without back pain, or those who want to be able to spend an hour gardening without needing 3 days rest! Whatever your pain or injury, from back pain to ankle sprains, from sore necks to grumbling shoulders, a Sports Therapist can help you!

I had two sport massages with Sam Costley after sustaining a hamstring injury. I am so impressed with how well I’ve recovered in three weeks since my first visit, as my injury was not getting much better with time. Sam is professional, knowledgeable and friendly, and taught me flexibility and strengthening exercises to do in between treatments, without which I would not have been able to make such good progress. I was getting pain in my hamstrings with short sharp movements but after the second treatment this became a lot better. Sam has helped me to increase my flexibility once more and I can now do the splits again. Would recommend to anyone. :)
Yet again Sam Costley has fixed me!

2 year stroke survivor I continue the fight back to full fitness whilst self employed as a dog walker....left sided weakness means my body works harder than most peoples...yet Sam always manages to make me feel normal again...I salute you my friend for all the help and advice you give me, as well as an awesome massage to fix my broken body x
Outstanding master of his craft; incredibly bright with a treasure trove of health and fitness knowledge; expert in weight training, cardio, human physiology and a warm spontaneous personality that make workouts fun. Sam Costley is brimming with the brains to help anyone achieve the brawn. He truly is the real deal in an industry full of wannabees and is the standard by which any trainer should be measured.

Sam treated me for first time yesterday.....have rebooked already....very professional.
Sam is brilliant - saw him today after being in pain for 3 weeks. Now it’s much better. Very professional and respectful too.

Another belting massage from Sam. I’m tender but no dull aches and I feel great! See you soon
Thankyou. Excellent massage with Sam. Shoulders mobile again!!
Personal Training with Sam:
I train with Sam Costley and for the first time ever as an adult, I can exercise without hurting myself because he really listens and pays attention to detail as I move, so he can adapt any exercise to avoid triggering my old sciatica, knee, neck or back pains. Training twice a week and doing absolutely no exercise at home in between sessions, I went from hurting every time I got up to moving pain free, feeling more confident because I am stronger and have much better balance so I can tackle small projects around the house again. I also sleep much better and, even though that is not why I started training, I have lost my taste for all sugary foods and lost a full dress size in 2 months.
I sometimes train with my daughter and Sam effortlessly adapts the session to engage us both even though we are of different ability (my daughter is really fit).
If you want to work with someone who knows their job, I can’t recommend Sam Costley highly enough.
