Vale Sports Therapy are a young dynamic fitness training and sports therapy company based in the Vale of Glamorgan, with facilities in Penarth and Cowbridge, covering Cardiff, Penarth, Barry, Cowbridge and Bridgend. We are dedicated to fitness, health and wellness and specialise in fitness training, sports massage, sports therapy, running, cycling and triathlon training.

Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.

Sports therapy takes sports massage one step further, and utilises other tools to help deal with injured athletes through to dealing with many common muscular complaints such as back pain, mobility problems, postural problems and work related conditions. We can then provide advice on the prevention of injuries and can examine, assess and treat those that do occur, as well as helping with the rehabilitation process.

New services for 2013 involve more fitness orientated training, including our popular Learn To Run running technique workshops, running, cycling and coaching, nordic walking and health & nutrition advice.
