DANCE EVENTS: check out where Back2toes is going; see the list below.
A Dance Event usually entails attending classes all day followed by dancing into the small hours. In the case of weekenders this will be repeated over 2 or 3 days! This takes its toll and the results are often swollen ankles, tired legs, bruises and sore muscles! The Back2toes stand will be at the following events to offer Sports Massage and specialist Pedastress foot therapy to help repair and revive you whilst adding sparkle to your dancing! A little known secret is that a treatment before you dance means that you vastly reduce the amount of tissue damage you would otherwise sustain. It actually prepares you for dancing - warms up the muscles and tendons and ensures optimum suppleness in your joints.
Injuries Therapy and Hot Stones Remedial massage are also available. Book now to avoid disappointment on the day - text 07795420229.
