Sports & Remedial Massage

Sports & Remedial Massage involves a specific combination of techniques which aim to improve performance, accelerate rehabilitation and recovery, and reduce the risk of future injury.

Treatment is based upon a thorough initial assessment, with a focus on the root cause of any pain you may have, rather than just the symptoms. Specific techniques are selected based on your needs, including Muscle Energy Techniques (MET) for improvement of joint mobility and motor control, and Soft Tissue Release (STR) for treating distinct areas of tension and adhesion.

Sports & Remedial Massage is particularly effective when used as part of a maintenance programme. Regular treatment can help ensure soft tissue remains supple and performing at its optimum, with areas of restriction and tension being eased before they become more of a problem.

 

The benefits of Sports & Remedial Massage may include:

  • increased lymphatic flow and circulation to necessary tissues

  • improved metabolic waste removal (so quicker recovery after training)

  • facilitation of optimum healing of strained muscles, ligaments & tendons

  • reduction of pain and discomfort

  • reduction in muscle tension, soreness and stiffness

  • sense of relaxation and improved sleep

Relaxation Massage

This type of massage involves working the soft tissue of the body to relieve discomfort associated with muscular tension, to encourage a feeling of relaxation.

It is best used as a regular tool in relieving stress, relaxing muscles and promoting a deep sense of well being, but even one off treatments can have a restorative effect on both body and mind.

The massage is tailored to you; just let me know the level of pressure you prefer.

The benefits of relaxation massage may include:

  • relief from stress and tension

  • increase in blood and lymphatic circulation

  • promotion of relaxation

  • improved quality of sleep

  • calming of the central nervous system and subsequent reduction in pain sensitivity
