Kay Shore – Sports Massage in Eastbourne.
Kay provides Sports Massage in Eastbourne and East Sussex in addition to Advanced Medical Acupuncture and Tool Assisted Massage to treat a range of conditions.
I work with my clients to release areas of restriction, tension and pain within the body.
Pain and tension very often arise from negative belief systems and stored emotions from past trauma.
I use various methods and techniques to release the areas that are holding on to pain and emotions. These range from Sports Massage to Advanced Clinical Massage, Myofascial Release and Advanced Medical Acupuncture. I am also an Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) practitioner.
I work on a physical, spiritual, emotional, intuitive and energetic level.
I regularly work with clients who have medically diagnosed chronic pain conditions.
At the first treatment I explore your ‘body history’, and the areas of discomfort and pain within your body. From this, I can assess your needs, treat you holistically, and provide you with the tools to continue to heal yourself.
I offer Hands-on, Drug Free treatment.
It is my belief that pain is often the result of unhealthy belief systems, or unwanted emotional stress from the past, which has been stored in the body and not released or resolved.
My goal is to help you discover and release these unwanted emotions and beliefs, and so restore body and mind to its natural, healthy state.
Pain can be treated using physical techniques alone, however if the emotional issue is not dealt with then it can manifest itself in the body in other ways, potentially returning in a more aggressive form than before.
I have discovered through my work with a broad range of clients that using a combination of mind and body techniques opens the way to very powerful and successful treatment experiences.
This approach to treatment can result in decreased pain and discomfort, and freer movement within the body, as well as healthier lifestyle and positive emotional changes.
I have worked in the health and fitness industry for seventeen years, and during the latter years started my journey as a healer.
Initially, I trained in Holistic massage (ITEC) before training as a Sports Massage therapist (ITEC) with Advanced Clinical Massage techniques (JING), Myofascial Release (JING), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Advanced Medical Acupuncture (OMT) and Physiotherapy Techniques (JING).
My study path is a result of my own belief that Body Work has immense healing power, through its powerful link with the mind.
When the mind isn’t happy, neither is the body, and when the body isn’t happy, neither is the mind!
I am currently developing an approach to releasing physical and emotional pain through exercise and movement.

1 ½ hrs £90 (recommended initially to thoroughly assess, treat and provide homecare)
1 hr £60
One session may be enough to help you on your way. However if further treatment is required then sessions are £60 per hour.
The length and type of sessions are individually tailored to the needs of the client. I use a bespoke approach, as I believe everyone carries pain in the body for different reasons and in different ways.

Eastbourne Sports Massage Testimonials
I would highly recommend Kay and her treatments ; she is very skilled in assessing the areas that need releasing; she has the intuition and sensitivity to know exactly where to work and the pressure required to allow the body to release the tension it is holding.
The results for me are greater range of movement and freedom from any pain or restriction when I am running. (Julia Armstrong Ex International and Elite runner 2013)
Thank you so much Kay. You clearly know your stuff, and I can already see the light at the end of the tunnel! (T. Stirmey, Eastbourne 2016)
On the recommendation and persistence of a friend, I staggered through Kay’s treatment door in desperation. I had developed and was receiving treatment for ‘late on-set migraine’. The migraines were frequent, twice/three times monthly and unbearable intense, with vomiting on the slightest movement. They could last anything up to five days, with at least two of these days leaving me completely immobile in bed. It had become easier to count the days in a month when I did not have a migraine. I had undergone two brain scans, with one as an emergency and had seen two Osteopaths, alongside ongoing medical treatment.
If honest, the migraines were so powerful, with little relief from prescription medication, that I could not see how a Sports Massage could possible help. I have never been so happy to be so wrong! Kay took a comprehensive medical history and then set to work, with a combination of Sports Massage and Acupuncture. In addition, she provided, reviewed and updated a range of ongoing self-help stretches and exercises to support the appointments, thoughtfully structured around the demands of a usual, busy day.
Following Kay’s treatment, life has dramatically changed, in a way I could never have envisaged. I now live migraine free. I suffer the odd headache, but this is controlled with over the counter painkillers and a range of self-help actions Kay has given me. The headaches are unrecognisable to the migraines suffered previously. In addition, I have a head that is straight on my shoulders and a neck, shoulders and back with significantly improved movement. In short, I have regained a quality of life I had completely lost. I could not begin to thank Kay enough.
Kay’s skills for assessment and treatment are impossible to convey on paper. She has an incredible intuition and can locate pain and tension that you are unaware exists. Kay is always very positive, supportive and empowering, offering a very personal, unique approach. This approach incorporates all aspects of life that might impact the issue or the treatment. She is totally non-judgemental, does not make false promises or give false hope, but remains absolutely focused on supporting you reach your specified health goal. I cannot recommend Kay enough and do so knowing that any treatment journey with her will be a very positive and successful one. (P.Brett 2016)
Having had a treatment from Kay, I was impressed with her history taking and her ability to define what I needed.I felt the massage was thorough and she found issues I hadn’t identified and was able to give advice post treatment. This included stretches and rehab exercises. I am happy to recommend her.
(Dr Keith Barrow Medical Officer to British Judo Team and London Broncos Rugby League team 2014)
I went to Kay to fix a stiff neck but in the end she sorted out far more. I had a longstanding tennis elbow issue that had been treated by Physio’s splints. Very depressing as it only responds to rest so was seriously impacting on all my training-even oddly my running. In our first session Kay discovered the elbow problem was referred pain from a problem with my rotator cuff, so no tennis elbow anymore. Kay has continued to investigate my odd sports pains and each time has intuitively and with great skill found the path of the pain, which is never the presenting problem, and treated the real cause. Without her input I would still be having treatments but no cures! Just did a PB in half marathon with no injury or pain problems. Thanks Kay! (Sinead Brophy CEO Eastbourne 2013)
On visiting my GP, with severe lower back and hip pains caused by a fall, I was told that it would be better for me to seek advice from a therapist who worked with muscle complaints in order to re-educate them and that the NHS could not provide me with physiotherapy. I was in considerable pain, not sleeping, taking time off work and unable to do a variety of activities due to the injury. I was also suffering from a tennis elbow and two cortisone injections had not helped with this. Again, I had time off work and had to keep my arm in a sling to ease the pain. Luckily, a friend recommended Kay to me.
I cannot recommend Kay enough; she is amazing with hands of steal which get right to the root of the problem. She is kind, thoughtful and extremely caring. I have immense trust in her ability and this has proved to be justified as I am back at the gym and able to carry out all aspects of my life as well as sleeping pain free. She also suggests follow up exercises to help retrain areas that have been treated hence speeding up the recovery period.
Kay is a lovely person who listens, considers and only then treats. I will always be grateful to her and hope she will agree to treat me should the need arise in the future. She is a great source of advice and will recommended other therapists should treatment be out of her field of expertise. A gem! (Fay, Eastbourne 2013)
Having undergone several medical procedures to get to the root cause of my pain, it was only when I starting seeing Kay that things progressed. Kay’s sympathetic and caring nature made me feel relaxed whilst being treated. Her knowledge and thinking outside the box improved my symptoms almost immediately! I just wish I had seen Kay before undergoing medical procedures! Thank you so much Kay for sorting me out! (Charlotte Bell, Personal Trainer, Eastbourne 2013)
I have been seeing Kay for treatment for the last few weeks following a diagnosis of tendonitis from my doctor which he suggested surgery. I was not happy with this and sought further advice from Kay.
Kay discussed my symptoms with me and after my first treatment concluded that the pain I was receiving in my wrist was stemming from my shoulder.
She gave me a list of exercises to perform daily in-between treatments to aid the speed of recovery. I was relieved to find an improvement after the first seven days. After a few weeks of massage coupled with my dedication to the self-help exercises I was prescribed, I had noticed a significant change to my symptoms. The pain had significantly reduced and I was able to carry out everyday activities once again, including exercise.
I am exceptionally happy with the results and relieved that I did not need invasive treatment in order to recover from my injury as my doctor had initially suggested.
Kay is a very professional therapist with exceedingly good knowledge in her chosen field. I would recommend her to my friends, family and clients. (Laura Morrow- Office worker and Class Instructor 2014)
I have always found Kay to be a professional, competent and friendly therapist.
I have been going to see Kay since 2009 and have always received effective treatment, coupled with good advice.
Kay uses her own time to research my problems, dealing with both the cause and the symptoms.
I recommend anyone to visit Kay where I am sure they will receive the highest standard of therapy. (Mick, East Dean 2013)
