Sports Therapist

Despite its name Sports Therapy is equally suitable for both sports people and non-sports people alike. Ruth Mills Therapies was set up in 2010 with the main aim of providing affordable healthcare to anyone suffering with pain or injury regardless of age, ability and lifestyle. Ruth’s approach is to deliver hands-on treatment (including deep tissue massage, ultrasound and kinesiology taping), and also to provide all the appropriate rehabilitation exercises allowing the person to return to full functional fitness.

Why see a Sports Therapist

Benefits of using a Sports Therapist

The following benefits can be experienced through the application of sports and deep tissue massage techniques:

- Muscle tension, soreness, and discomfort are reduced.
- Improved performance due to increased range of motion.
- After exercise or physical activity, muscular stiffness and pain are reduced.
- Post-injury healing time is cut in half.
- Relaxation levels are higher, while physical and psychological stress levels are lower.
-Aids in the quantity and quality of sleep.

These advantages are mostly due to an increase in local blood circulation, which aids in the removal of chemical irritants and waste materials that have accumulated within the muscle. Fresh blood flow improves oxygen and nutrition content within the muscle at the same time. This, in turn, can aid muscle recovery and contribute to a reduction in muscle tension.

What People Say About Us

Lets get you back to your phenomenal self

Bambi Newport

Ruth Mills Therapies is fantastic! Ruth is very knowledgeable, approachable and friendly, putting you at ease. She has a lot of experience and understanding to ensure correct diagnosis and treatment plans, and explains the issue and the treatment clearly. As my job is very physical, the importance of maintenance and effective treatment is key and Ruth is able to adapt and address treatments accordingly. She is flexible and accommodating when it comes to arranging appointments. I would highly recommend Ruth to anyone who needed treatment for injury, maintenance, or just a good deep massage!

Would highly recommend Ruth. Following a Grade 3 Calf Tear, I was looking for a Sports Therapist to support me on a ongoing nature with reducing the risk of a reoccurrence.Playing football 3-4 times per week means the risk of it happening again is always there but seeing Ruth on a regular basis, I have noticed a significant difference in my recovery times, muscle condition, general well-being and overall confidence.Always a friendly welcome, professional and great value. Would highly recommend 60mins+Thanks for all you do Ruth

After suffering for years with bad back & sciatica and various physiotherapists I came to see Ruth, WOW I wish I had used Ruth years ago as I feel like a new person last night was the 1st night in a VERY long time I was able to sleep on my side without the feeling my ribs were going to break, I have had a good night sleep pain free, thank you so much Ruth, you honestly have the magic touch.
