“Approximately ten years ago, a motorbike injury had left me with a number of spinal injuries, and since then I have been working with a number of practising specialist such as chiropractors, Osteopaths and physiotherapists all of which have required regular treatments due to ongoing strains and pains. I was introduced to Lee via recommendation and whilst happy to try any form of treatment to improve my situation, I will admit to being sceptical of how much of an improvement could be achieved through Sports massage. Following the initial consultation session, I was surprised to notice the improvement in spinal movement, along with the feeling of release in areas such as my shoulders and neck. I have since had repeated appointments with Lee, and find the professional approach, along with the length of appointment (most osteopaths and chiropractors I have experienced set appointments for 25-30 minutes - Sports massage can last between 45 minutes to an hour depending on treatment) not only relaxing but extremely affective.
“I've been seeing Lee for just over a year, after I pulled muscles in my back whilst being a big kid on holiday in Disneyland, because work can involve some heavy lifting, and now that I'm in 'regular' training at the gym, I see him once every 6 weeks for 'maintenance. This is something I did in the past before moving to Swindon - back when I worked in an office, but I certainly didn't understand or appreciate the benefits a regular session would bring.
Lee Paines has been invaluable to my family's success in sport. Through regular massage therapy from Lee, combined with his recommendations on exercise and injury management, my son recovered quickly from two stress fractures to become an Army Physical Training Instructor. He also helped me to become a European SIlver medallist in triathlon in July this year despite having major knee surgery in January. He is also playing a crucial part in my preparations for the World championships in September. He has extensive knowledge and experience of sports injuries and correctly identified the source of my knee problem long before the medical practitioners I consulted. He is constantly reviewing and updating his skills and knowledge base and I have complete trust in his judgement.
“I have a sedentary job, which involves long hours hunched up over a computer keyboard. I had long accepted shoulder and neck pain as being just part of the job, until I also started to suffer with my back locking up in the evenings. Then I discovered Lee Paines Sports Massage. When I went for my first appointment, Lee took time to listen to my history, and then set to work on a course of treatment. Within a few weeks, my back had stopped locking up, and my neck and shoulders were no longer painful after a long day at work. Regular appointments since then have left me feeling free of aches and pains. Lee is always happy to attend to any new ailments that crop up between appointments, with an appropriate treatment to resolve the problem, and advice on how to avoid it in the future. I have no hesitation in recommending Lee to anyone, whether they have a particular ailment that needs treatment, or whether they just need regular maintenance visits to avoid problems in the future.”
