London’s best sports massages – Here’s where to get a pain-relieving sports massage in the capital
Josh Betteridge at Twenty Two
Betteridge practises an ultra-slow facial-release technique that is excellent for soft-tissue rehabilitation. His speciality is dealing with problems in the upper back, shoulders and neck.
£100 for 60 mins, 22 Elvaston Mews, SW7, twentytwotraining.com
Jon Gee at The Berkeley Clinic
Ex-trapeze artist Jon Gee combines superhuman strength with a holistic approach to painmanagement, including mindfulness. Don’t expect a straight-forward rubadubdub.
£90 for 60 mins, 19 Upper Berkeley Street, W1, citysportsmassage.com
Jay Watson at Ten Physio
Prepare for pain when you see Watson. He works with athletes and knows that sorting sore muscles isn’t always pleasant. The result was vastly improved mobility in my shoulders.
From £45 for 30 mins, TenPilates City, 119-121 Middlesex St, E1 tenpilates.com
Philip Bishop at Triyoga
With a background in dance, Bishop specialises in posture analysis and correction. After a body assessment he will manipulate your limbs (pressing all the sore points) to bring movement back to your muscles and joints.
£75 for 60 mins, Triyoga Camden, 57 JamestownRoad, NW1, triyoga.co.uk
Lucinda Walker-Smith at Six Physio
Walker-Smith is a goddess. After just half an hour on her table, my achy back — made stiff from slumping at my desk — was completely de-knotted, while all the tension in my shoulders was released.
£40 for 30 min, 39 Harwood Road, SW6, sixphysio.com
