It aims to prevent injuries, accelerate recovery, alleviate pain, improve blood circulation, enhance flexibility, boost endurance, and sharpen performance. Sports massage isn’t just for athletes; individuals with physically demanding lifestyles or desk-bound work routines can greatly benefit from its restorative effects.

Gentle strokes and guided breathing create a safe space for your brain to release these stored memories. If you experience chronic or recurring injuries, alignment therapy may help restore natural movement, vitality, and pain relief.

Vera is absolute MAGIC! Her innate healing capabilities stretch far beyond the physical. Whether I am training for an event or merely sitting at my desk too long, I can always count on Vera to fix any snap, crackle, or pop that showed up uninvited. I also make sure I always have some of her very own epsom salt and essential oil diffusers at hand to assist the healing and recovery. And above all else I believe I have made a true friend for life. You are safe, respected, and treated with a purpose of healing. Your body will thank you for making an appointment!

I came in for a sports massage and Hanlie was intentional with all the movements she was doing. I could feel that she was adjusting what she was doing based of how ‘tight’ my muscles were. She is kind and friendly as well. I would highly recommend.

Vera is able to alleviate 6 weeks worth of tension and pain, in one 60 minute session. She is so knowledgeable and readily offers advice and rehab recommendations. Vera is definitely my go-to for all sport related injuries.

I will highly recommend Vera's sport massage. She sorted out my tired, over worked muscles, and identified & treated the problem areas. Vera delivers a very professional service. She gives good information and recommendations about (the state of 😁) my body, and the way forward with my training. Thank you Vera, see you soon again! 😀

Very glad I was referred to Mindful Healing - Sports Massage after my MTB injury! Vera identified the root trauma area that was causing my painful shoulder restrictions. By treating the exact areas brought relief in the 1st session. Strapping helped my movement and healing process. Vera has a great way to talk you thru the painful part of treatment. I am grateful to be back on my bike and learnt it is so worth investing in your body's health instead of only in your bike! Thanks Vera, looking forward to your Lyno and Body Alignment treatments.

I suffered a blowout C4 Disc that compressed my spinal cord which caused my neck and shoulders to be affected with pain and stiffness. Vera has been of huge help in reducing the pain and cause mobility to return to my neck and back. I am very pleased and csn highly recommend her.

I can’t recommend Vera’s sports massage service enough. She is incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in her practice. She was able to easily identify the trouble spots in my muscles and worked on them effectively. She has also provided me with valuable insights on how to loosen up problem areas at home, which has been extremely helpful in managing tension between sessions. I have visited many massage therapists in the past, and Vera’s expertise and commitment to her clients truly stand out. If you’re in need of sports massage therapy, I would definitely recommend her services. You won’t be disappointed!

Vera is my go to for all my deep tissue care, What sets Vera apart from other therapist is her ability to tailor each session to the individual. She listened attentively to my feedback throughout the massage, adjusting her approach accordingly. She always remembers the previous session and problems I had. Her personalized care made me feel like I was in the hands of someone who genuinely cared about my well-being.

Daar is nie woorde om te beskryf hoe amazing Vera is nie! Sy weet presies wat sy doen en hoe om te help. Ek is al ‘n jaar by haar en sy help met als. Sy is ‘n gekwalifiseerde “Lyno Therapist, Sports massage Therapist, Body Alignment Therapist en Reiki Master/Teacher Practitioner. Sy laat jou baie gemaklik voel en is baie professioneel. Sy het een aand laat my gehelp toe my rug in spasma gegaan het a.g.v klein kindertjies wat ek moet ronddra. 🫣😅🥰 Sy is amazing en ek sal enige iemand na haar toe verwys. Sy gee regtig om.
