Belinda Mayne NLSSM Dip, MSMA/BTEC
Registered as a member of The Institute of Sports & Remedial Massage Association
In my practice my clients are young and old and while I do treat and help sportsmen and sportswomen from a wide range of sports disciplines, I also treat a great number of people who have developed problems in relation to their occupation such as Carpenters, Builders and Electricians who often develop problems due to the physicality of their work. Perhaps a little less obviously, I treat Chefs and Musicians who have developed problems related to their posture and repetitive strain injury (RSI).
Some of my clients have a background of medical problems such as Parkinson’s Disease and MS, which have given rise to alterations in their strength and posture and in turn given rise to muscle pains which benefit from sports massage therapy.
Whilst many clients come initially because they have a problem, sports massage therapy is also very useful in terms of maintenance of good muscle tone and balance and helps anticipate and prevent future problems arising. It also can provide a profound sense of wellbeing and lifting vitality.
However for Sports Massage Therapy to have the best opportunity of providing maximum benefit, it is vital that the therapist listens carefully to the client and gains a clear understanding of the clients problems and also of how they have occurred. This diagnostic (or detective) work is a very rewarding aspect of treatment, because it helps the client understand their problems more clearly and hopefully provide a basis for the client to anticipate and prevent problems for themselves.
All in all, Sports Massage Therapy is a highly rewarding and beneficial and for all these reasons I am passionate about Sports massage Therapy and truly love my work.

What my clients say
I have Parkinson's and visited Belinda for help with long-term lower back issues. Belinda took the time and care to find out more about me as a person and what I wanted to achieve. Since being treated by Belinda I have climbed Snowdon, Ben Nevis and been trekking in The Pyrenees. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is recovering from an injury or illness and wants to regain an active lifestyle. She is excellent!
I just wanted to thank you Belinda for an amazing session this afternoon. After suffering a sprained ankle on Saturday I felt my chances of starting a charity cycle ride to Paris this Thursday was in serious doubt. But after the session I can't quite believe the difference and now have every confidence in taking part and completing the ride. I will raise a glass of bubbly to you on the Champs Elysees. Thank you so much!!!
I have a disabled daughter who is bed bound suffering from "Sanfilipo Syndrome”. I found Belinda Mayne in Wells, she is based at the "Courtyard Natural Therapy Centre" and also runs a clinic from her home. Luckily she also offers home visits.
Alice, my daughter is benefiting greatly from regular treatments. Belinda’s care, attention and expertise I believe is really helping my daughter. Belinda is a consummate professional and i can’t recommend her more highly.
Having suffered from back, neck and shoulder problems for a number of years I have experienced a number of excellent professionals. From Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists and the Surgeons who have repaired me enough for these wonderful people to get me moving again.
Although I had recovered a full range of movement, I always felt stiff jointed and a sense that I might pull or strain something. Six months ago I called Belinda as my neck had stiffened and was causing considerable pain. Her approach is to get to the root cause of the problem. So, she massages and stretches from the core so that your whole body benefits.
I’ve experienced a lot of improvement in my back, neck, shoulders and even my legs to the point where my treatments are less needed and more of an MOT.
I totally recommend Belinda.
I have suffered with recurring shoulder and back problems and a recent hip diagnosis means I needed to find a good sports massage therapist who understands my needs and is willing to work with other specialists to ensure I receive exactly the right treatment. I can't rate Belinda highly enough. She is genuinely passionate about her work and her clients and goes out of her way to provide an excellent service. Highly recommended.
I'm very sporty, I play tennis, run and go to the gym regularly but in the last few months, I've been experiencing consistent lower back pain and hip restriction until I found Belinda Mayne"s practice in Wells somerset.
She has been treating me for the last couple of months and remarkably the discomfort has almost disappeared through regular treatment and strengthening exercises that she recommended me to do. She is a caring, attentive therapist and i can't recommend her more highly.
I visited Belinda for a long standing shoulder injury and was delighted by the success of her treatment. I have continued to have regular sessions to maintain the improvement and help with lower back issues. Belinda has been and continues to be a great help in maintaining my overall fitness.
Belinda has a very down to earth approach to her massage which makes you feel comfortable. Her equipment and therapy space is clean, tidy and well maintained and as a person who enjoys exercise herself her knowledge and experience of the body is excellent. Combined with her techniques she gives a very professional and restorative massage. Her after care exercises are a great bonus to the treatments. Highly recommended.
