Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy
Massage is defined as the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues, including muscles, tendons and ligaments to assist with preventative treatment and injury recovery.
So many of us suffer with everyday aches, pains and complaints that we think we just have to put up with. From stress-related injuries to migraines to postural problems that can lead to more chronic back pains, massage therapy can really help to relieve some of those issues.
Massage therapy provides relief from muscle tensions and can be a very effective treatment during recovery from operations or an accident, reducing pain, improving mobility and restoring function.
We know that the body and mind are intrinsically linked and a massage session is also great for relaxation, gaining that much needed personal time to switch off and de-stress in a calm environment.
Relief from repetitive strain injuries
Reduction in frequency and intensity of headaches and migraines
Improved body awareness
Reduction in stress & anxiety
A safe, soothing massage during your pregnancy can relieve some of the normal discomforts you may be experiencing at this time – such as back ache, muscle tension, fatigue, headaches or migraines.
By increasing blood circulation, relieving stress on the major joints and helping to relax nervous tension, massage therapy can help you gain better sleep and be generally more comfortable and calm during your pregnancy.
For sports performance
For the body to perform at its optimum level, massage techniques can be of great benefit to overall performance. Releasing muscle tension and knots and developing even muscle tone will prepare you, as the athlete, for smooth, efficient activity.
Regular massage treatment will help training to be more effective and will enable recovery from training to be a smooth process, reducing the chances of injury. This will ensure that maximum training effect can be gained from each session, leading directly to improved performance during competition.
The benefits of massage therapy are evident in pre-competition, during and post-competition. With carefully tailored pre-event massage, the body and the mind are prepared for the demands of the competition. Post-competition massage aids recovery with reduced muscle soreness, allowing a faster return to training.
Massage can help in the treatment and recovery from injury. We use advanced massage techniques including mobilisations and stretching techniques to restore optimal function and movement. We work closely with each client to try and identify the causes of injury by including a detailed assessment to help prevent further injury. We can provide advice on rehabilitation exercises and support clients in the safe return to activity and training.
