Firstly, I'd like to introduce myself, but more importantly, the business.

I'm Laura Parkes-Drewery, Soft Tissue Therapist and founder of The Therapy Barn. I first started the business back in 2014 upon qualifying with a mission to helping people do more, whilst hurting less.

Over the past 5 years the business has changed, but the fundamental service we provide has not. Our aim is to provide an affordable and long-lasting solution to pain through the use of Soft Tissue Therapy and careful management.

What is Soft Tissue Therapy? A question often posed, Soft Tissue Therapy is one of a kind. Rather than just treating the area that the pain presents, it looks at the body as an entire - thinking about all potential factors that may influence the issue. Using a variety of hands-on techniques, including; Sports & Swedish massage, Neuromuscular technique (NMT), Soft Tissue Release (STR), Myofascial Release (MFR), and a combination of passive and active stretch work, we can treat a whole host of conditions that are usually written off as being 'something you have to put up with' - well, NEWSFLASH - you don't have to!

Our therapists work with clients to provide a service tailored to their individual needs. This not only applies to the time they spend in their appointment, but also by looking at ways of maintaining the health of our bodies between treatments - which may include stretch programs, strengthening exercises and even, breathing exercises.

Our passion is getting you pain-free, and ultimately, keeping you that way!

We work closely with osteopaths and other medical professionals to ensure you are receiving the best treatment for Y-O-U.

What sort of thing can it help? There's no right or wrong answer to this question. Because Soft Tissue Therapy has so many tangents, it can be used to treat many hundreds of conditions, pain and injuries.

The most common issues we see in clinic include:

- Sciatica - Muscle aches - Long-term back pain / problems - Shoulder injuries - Strains / sprains - Arthritis - Fibromyalgia - Trapped nerves - Headaches / migraine - Whiplash

You can visit us at The Therapy Barn in Lingfield, Surrey. We are a friendly private practice with excellent facilities and three fully trained, passionate therapists to work with. Open 6 days' a week with daytime and evening appointments available, you can be sure to find time to schedule us into even the busiest of lives.

I am writing this blog in the hope it will help people to understand the effectiveness of Soft Tissue Therapy and its many applicable uses in everyday life. If there's anything you'd be particularly interested in hearing me discuss or my thoughts on, please feel free to drop me an email and I will do my best to make it happen.

See you soon!
