Trapped Nerve Massage Cardiff
Sports Massage for Trapped Nerve Cardiff

This special range of sports massage treatments is suitable for people of all ages and physical conditions.
Aromatherapy essential oils may be blended to ease the effects of the inflammation associated with the trapped nerve syndrome. Sciatic nerve pain may also be addressed with various trigger point therapy treatments and myofascial or soft tissue manipulations may best suit the release of the trapped nerve which may cause a lack of mobility, reduced range of motion, shooting pains and 'pins and needles' numbness.

Shorter versions of the trapped nerve massage may be performed without oil, over your (light cotton) clothing. This will mainly involve Shiatsu and sports massage or trigger pointing. When performed in this way, this trapped nerve massage routine may be quite deep and invigorating, when needed.
For longer sessions of the trapped nerve treatment, special hot stones therapy massage uses a highly specialised blend of Aromatherapy essential oils that will be tailor made to suit your personal needs (mainly anti-inflammatory oils). The use of the hot volcanic basalt stones deeply relaxes your muscle tissue and allows the painless and smooth release of your trapped nerve with minimal side effects. For long term use, aromatherapy products with specially selected aromatherapy essential oils, may best suit sciatic trapped nerve.
Trapped muscle massage is recommended at any time of the year, as needed - for sciatica, shoulder, neck
and back pain.
Trapped nerve massage client testimonials:
"World Class - Olympic standard.. I've visited City Marshall several times. Having ran in two Olympic Games and having a silver medal in one I'd say I've got some very credible knowledge and experience in world class massage therapy. I've had some of the best therapists in the world treat me in the past and I must say that Philip at City Marshall is one of the best therapists I've ever had. You get what you pay for and that's Olympic standard.... The best! I look forward to visiting again soon!"

"Excellent. Making great progress in my recovery. Philip provides great advice and treatment. I have had a trapped nerve in my neck for a long time, with my shoulders and neck constantly being tight and gave me pain. Since I have started coming to City Marshall I have definitely seen a great improvement and my neck/shoulders are improving. "

"Sciatic pain discomfort - myofascial release. I have enjoyed my visitt to Marshall massage therapy clinic in Cardiff. He appears to have 20 years of great experience in sports injures, and pin-pointed my needs and addresed them within 10 minutes of seeing me. We focussed on myofascial release of my trapped sciatic nerve. It is now two monthes later - and there is still totally no pain! We had two times a full hour session, and both times, I was given an extra 15 minutes or so of free time when we further dicussed diet, nutrition, ways of streching and general well-being. Marshall is an exceptional talent and you should seek him out on your visit to Cardiff."

"With his expert care and professional manner, Philip seamlessly blends sports massage, Shiatsu and other complementary therapies, including dietary advice. His attunement with his clients' needs is second to none and his gentle and intuitive composure makes you feel relaxed and in extremely capable hands. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He has helped me with anxiety, IBS, a trapped nerve and all manner of other discomforts."

"I have been to to many places for massages but city Marshall was by far the best. Philip really knows his stuff! Also my nan had treatment for a trapped nerve she has been suffering with for months and after one treatment she has no pain what so ever. Amazing! True healing hands. Will definitely be back."

"I booked massages for myself and my partner with Philip and we both greatly enjoyed the experience. Philip built in the time to get to know me and understand what I wanted, while recommending the best massage for me. I felt that Philip put a lot of effort into this which results in a very personalised service that best benefitted me. Philip took time to explain everything to me and check I was comfortable with the different things he used. The massage itself was fantastic. I asked for a relaxation focused massage as I had been going through a very stressful time, but with emphasis on my back and shoulder which had been causing me pain. Philip mixed oils together to best benefit my body which smelled lovely and added to the relaxed atmosphere with the gentle music too. I felt relaxed and invigorated at the same time afterwards, and my back was really improved for several weeks. I also found I slept better after the massage, with my body able to properly relax. Philip used towels senstively to ensure I felt comfortable, and the bed used for the massage was comfortable too. I will certainly be returning. Overall I felt this massage gave good value for money, the session was full and personalised. My partner had a similarly excellent experience, with Philip recognising the tension and stress in his head and paying particular attention to this part of his body, which apparently made him feel much better afterwards. Overall, Philip was very therapeutic in his approach, and the experience was soothing, relaxing and contiued to benefit us for several weeks. We are looking forward to returning soon."

FANTASTIC. I cannot recommend Philip enough. I have suffered for 7 years with horrendous shoulder, back and neck pain, causing restricted movement and also lack of circulation into my fingers (always went white when cold) - after 2 sessions I have had no more white finger (and it has been freezing) and considerably reduced pain. I know I will need a few sessions due to being this way for so long, but Phillip is AMAZING and I now feel there is a light at last at the end of my tunnel. I cannot recommend City Marshall enough, I was near breaking point, he really does have healing hands....I can't thank you enough.....
Thank you for making me smile again :-)
"Having suffered from symptoms of damaged nerves in my head and neck for more than 2 weeks - and having had no relief from the treatment prescribed by GP and consultant, I was amazed that after 1 treatment with Philip I saw a vast improvement. I went on to subsequent treatments which have been hugely successful. I'm so grateful for the amazing work."

"I suffer from constant daily back and hip pain due to osteoarthritis. And I didnt realise just after the treatment that I was no longer in pain.... This wonderful reprieve lasted approximately 3 weeks. I am so impressed that I have recommended him to family/ friends / work colleagues, and have asked family to not buy presents for Christmas for me, but to able me to attend this exceptional method of pain relief without popping pills."
Teresa Lloyd-Cox Cardiff 9 November 2012
"After years of worsening back tension, a few visits to City Marshall have worked wonders. The stress in my neck, back and shoulders was extreme. Spa therapists had said I was one of the worst cases they had seen! Not only is Philip releasing the tension in my back and shoulder muscles, he also applies an holistic approach to treatment, drawing on his expertise across multiple disciplines. Philip has advised on back support at work; alleviated fluid retention; blended a warming massage oil and suggested targeted exercises to help. His treatments are therapeutic indeed. Philip is calm and considerate and ensures a comfortable environment. I would have no hesitation recommending him to others, I can not praise him highly enough."

"I'm a professional dancer on tour here in Cardiff. I had been suffering with a trapped nerve for 2 months and had treatment by 2 physio's in London. Didn't help me at all. However after one hour treatment with Philip it's completely gone... Really wonderful!"
