I walked in to the Skelian clinic at my wit's end - my neck and shoulders hurt from decades of poor posture due to computer work, my left forearm was tight and painful and I had been suffering with agonizing tennis elbow in my right arm which was waking me up every night. It felt like my entire upper body had seized up. From the moment I entered the clinic I felt a good vibe - Angela, the receptionist, made me feel relaxed and welcome and was just lovely to be around, she takes a genuine interest in every client and radiates warmth - and has a lovely singing voice to boot! Victoria, who I cannot thank enough, has worked miracles. After four treatments, using a combination of dry needle therapy, targeted deep tissue massage and spinal manipulation I feel like a different person. The pain has almost completely gone and I have a workable action plan on how to look after my joints. Victoria is empathic, exceptionally knowledgeable, witty and a great listener. She explains what she is doing in straightforward language and puts you at ease immediately. I can honestly say that I am blown away by the results, it is life changing to have that debilitating pain taken away. I wish I'd gone sooner. If you are suffering with neck, back or joint problems please just book an appointment online, you owe it to yourself.

I was not expecting the relief that I experienced, From the moment treatment started I was made relaxed, after my first treatment I could not believe the difference, All the staff were very professional, the treatment was exceptional, Actually looking foreward to my next appointment
I've been coming to Dani for regular Sports Massage appointments for nearly a year now, recently transitioning on to the Hot Stones massage. As someone who likes to regularly weight train these sessions have been invaluable to my recovery and have ensured that any aches, pains and knots are kept to their absolute minimum. I've recently moved over to the Hot Stones massage and highly recommend it, it's a great mixture of traditional sports massage techniques combined with the hot stones - this will be my go to massage moving forward. Dani is extremely welcoming, friendly and a pleasure to be around - I can't rate her highly enough!

Very nice clinic and in my opinion affordable. I went there because I have office job and suffer from neck/back pain occasionally. Jamie Franchini was extra attentive, reassuring and informative all the way along my first app (since my partner mentioned that I feel a bit nervious about the procedure) and has a very friendly and welcoming personality. He explained everything and made me at ease. Created plan for my particular needs and even sent me additional info with recommended excercises to do for my issues. Had just few visits but deffinately will keep going for the maintenance and further support of overall health. Highly recommending :)

Massage Cheltenham

There are so many benefits to having a fantastic massage. Massage therapy can be a great way to reduce pain, stress or help recover from an injury. 

Sports massage and Therapeutic Massage

There are so many benefits to having a fantastic massage, whether you have a specific problem or not. Massage therapy can be a great way to reduce pain, stress or help recover from an injury. Most things that cause pain or anxiety can lead to muscle tension and massage is a great way to help address or manage those problems.

At Skelian, we have a brilliant massage therapist who is here to help you. From recovering from pregnancy to sports injuries, both of our massage therapists tailor each session to your needs, to help you relax or get back on track after an injury.

Sports Massage Cheltenham

The sports massage offered at Skelian always looks at the bigger picture, encompassing the different areas of the body that need addressing. We are fortunate to have our fantastic Sports Therapist Dani, who qualified at the University of Gloucester.

Dani  customises her sessions to you. Using a variety of deep tissue work, stretching, mobilising, and lighter touch techniques to leave you feeling great afterwards.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage aims to penetrate the muscle or soft tissue fibres to release any adhesions (tight muscle fibres) that may be causing your pain, muscle and or joint tightness. 

Typically more pressure is used during this technique, compared to a more relaxing massage, where the goal is to help reduce mental as well as physical tension. As this technique uses more pressure compared to your standard massages, your massage therapist will ask for feedback throughout your massage to make sure the pressure is just right. Deep tissue massage is often incorporated into sports massage techniques but is used in a wide variety of massage techniques available at Skelian.

Relaxing Massage

 A relaxing massage always feels great. For many people it can help balance the physical, emotional, mental needs of the body. It is a mixture of gentle or deeper movements tailored to your individual needs. It may help to reduce muscular pain, tension and stiffness. Relieves tired or stressed muscles. It helps to rebalance the body’s system. It boosts circulation and helps lymphatic flow, energy levels can also improve. It helps with posture and increases mobility.  Massage may help headaches, stress and improve insomnia.

A base oil such as grape seed or coconut is used and the whole body (back, neck, shoulders, legs, arms and face) can be treated. The result is deeply relaxing and gives rise to a general sense of wellbeing.

Rehabilitative Massage

Not exclusively for sporty people, if you need more of a rehabilitative approach to your treatment then Dani will be able to help deliver this. Dani our massage therapist is an experienced professional and offers a very flexible approach to offering exercises and hands on massage treatments. The massage therapist may also refer you to one of our chiropractors or specialist physiotherapist, if they feel a combined approach or another professional is more appropriate for your condition. If you are referred to one of our chiropractors or physiotherapist, they will often refer patients with a specific goal in mind. For example, this may be easing muscular tension that is associated with a spinal condition, or additional rehabilitation following an injury. Dani will use her extensive and experienced massage skills to help manage your aches and pains or assist in your healing process.

What to expect from a massage

Each session begins with discussion to establish how you are feeling and what you need at the time of the massage. Our massage therapists will ask some questions relating to your health, lifestyle, exercise, area of discomfort, listen fully, suggest a treatment or specific treatment techniques.
