If your muscles are feeling tight and you’re having trouble recovering from a tough day, whether that’s in the gym, on the pitch, or in the office, a sports massage at Reflex-18 Sports Injury Hub in Colchester is the perfect treat your body needs.
After a massage at Reflex-18, you will leave refreshed, relaxed and energised, allowing you to go about your day feeling amazing. A sports massage as a one-off, or on a regular basis, is great for anyone, particularly athletes when a fast recovery is required.
Sports massage (soft tissue therapy) can help in many ways, including decreasing tension, improving recovery, breaking down scar tissue, identifying areas that could potentially lead to injuries, improving flexibility, decreasing pain and helping relaxation.

WHAT TO EXPECT
When you enter the clinic you will be greeted by a friendly sports massage therapist. They will take a full history of your condition, but ask you some questions to get to know you. What you want to achieve from your sports massage and then perform treatment. The depth of sports massage varies from individual to individual, so our therapist will look for feedback from you on how firm they need to be. This can vary from a relaxing massage to deep tissue work – it all depends on you. It may be that you would benefit from the expertise of another professional in the clinic and in that case your physio may discuss you with the other clinician, or arrange for you to see them too.
RECOVER. MAINTAIN. PERFORM.
I returned to Reflex - 18 this time with a new injury. I saw Shaun who diagnosed the issue really quickly and worked on my back. Talk about a magician. Such a difference, i seriously cannot recommend these professionals enough. You wont go wrong by going here. Brilliant
Best physiotherapist I’ve seen. Over the years I’ve seen a few physio’s and I can say that the physio I saw here knew what they were on about and gave me the help I needed in the space of about 3 weeks to a month of treatment for my injury! Would definitely recommend to anyone like myself who is very much into there exercise and does a competitive sport!
Friendly and professional service. Recommend using them
The rehabilitation programme I received was delivered in a professional and appropriate manner. All sessions were relaxed, I felt I could ask questions and feel very much a part of my recovery process. Sincere thanks to all at Reflex18 but a particular thank you to Alice who guided me through some difficult times.
In October 2020 I was diagnosed with a ruptured Achilles tendon which I had left undiagnosed and treated for a few months as I was aware what medical intervention would entail. Eventually I sought medical advice and was told I was facing an operation to reconnect the tendon using harvested tendon from my big toe which was going to result in a lot of time incapacitated and a long struggle to regain fitness afterwards. However, the surgeons gave me the opportunity of having physiotherapy first, to see if that would work before a final decision was taken. As a result I visited Josh in November 2020 and 6 months later I am virtually walking normally and can weight bear on my bad ankle again. The final steps in my recovery can be carried out now that I can get outdoors walking again and also my gym being open. I cannot thank him enough for what he physically did for me and also his positive attitude in dealing with my problem. I would have no hesitation in recommending both him and Reflex 18. Many thanks.
I have had a few sessions at reflex 18 with Chris and I am currently being treated by Alice, they are both fantastic physios. I feel I am listened to and Alice is working at my pace. Booking can be done online which is great. I highly recommend Reflex 18. If (touch wood) I need a physio again, I will be back here in a flash.
A very professional service in a comfortable venue housing great facilities to aid therapy. The service is caring and patient centred and good value. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone requiring treatment or advice for their physical well being and injury recovery.
First visit the Relex 18. Easy to park and a nice welcome on entering. Treatment was good and the Physio took time to listen and explain the treatment I would be having. I would recommend
I saw Tom and very quickly booked a second appointment! He is professional and very knowledgeable. I am confident he can resolve my issues.
I was recommended to see Alice by a friend and although I've only had one session, I am more confident in myself that with her help I can recover after a serious injury. Its going to take time but I know I'm in the right place! Mick Harty
