Sports Therapy Services
Our patients range from international athletes representing England and Great Britain, club runners, gym goers and people who just like to keep fit, so we aim to offer a range of treatments to suit all.
Our objective is for you to stay injury free and in peak condition for what ever it is you want from life. That might be the World or European Championships or just as importantly, walking the dog.
Always ask to see your therapist's qualifications!
I am a Level 4 Qualified Sports Massage Therapist NOT just level 3, so I am insured and qualified to deal with injuries unlike Level 3 Massage Therapists who are not. Also a proud member of the Sports Therapy Association.
We insist on only offering the highest quality treatment so we focus on you, the patient, your goals and your needs. There is no compromise.
Magnus Sports Therapy is your local Sports Therapy Clinic based in the centre of Tavistock. In the event that you can't get to us we can come to you. Saving you having to travel anywhere at all, offering home visits to patients within a reasonable radius of Tavistock.
We're proud to cover most of West and South Devon including Tavistock, Yelverton, Plymouth Horrabridge, Princetown, Crapstone, Gunnislake, Peter Tavy, Mary Tavy, Lamerton, Lydford and Roborough.

Injury Asessment & Treatment
As a Level 4 Sports Massage Therapist I am able to assist with injuries often brought about through sport activities. Through thorough testing and assessment we look to identify not just the injury you present to us but also the underlying causes of the injury. As we all know, prevention is far better that cure. Believe it or not we'd actually rather see you injury free than see you each month because you keep picking up a niggle or pain due to something we could sort out. We'll aim to get you to a point where Maintenance Massage is all you need. I will always give you an honest assessment and if I think you need the attention of a Physiotherapist then I will refer you straight away.
Maintenance Sports Massage - Deep Tissue Massage
We all want to stay injury free don't we? So don't wait for there to be an issue. General maintenance massage treatment with deep tissue massage will keep your body in top condition, giving you the best chance to stay injury free. We will get to know your body better than you and potentially identify problems even before you feel them and they become an injury. Surely that's the best way.....
Post Injury Sports Massage Therapy
After your body has begun the healing process it works tirelessly to put you back together. It does this remarkably well, however there can be problems if that healing process isn't managed well. Scar tissue can form, compensation injuries can occur and weakness in the area can cause future problems. We can work through the areas affected by previous injuries and prevent reoccurring issues. Our range of testing and assessment means that we can identify a wide range of common injuries and muscle dysfunction. We will never knowingly mislead you or pretend we can fix everything. We are open honest and will tell you exactly what we can do as well as what we can't. In these rare cases we can refer you quickly to the right professional for the treatment you need. We have close relationships with who we believe to be the best in their specialist fields. We are very selective over who we refer our patients to. With this referral we will send your patient records including the assessment that we have carried out which will also speed up the diagnosis process.
Pre/ Post Event Sports Massage Therapy
Leading up to a big event you want to feel fresh and ready to give it your best. At the same time you have probably been training hard putting your body through all sorts to get you to the start line as fit as possible. Through the use of appropriate Sports Massage we'll work with you to prepare your body in the build up to the big day and ease those equally sore and tight muscles during the days of celebration after you succeed. Whether it's a running, cycling or swimming event or even a triathlon, we love the challenge of keeping you in tip top condition.
Treatments are offered in 60 minute and 45 minute sessions. We do also offer a 30 minute session but this is reserved for existing patients who we know well and have had a full initial consultation. We don't offer a quick "in and out service", it's thorough and completed properly. We offer the very best treatment and this can not be done in 30 minutes if we have never seen you before.
