Sports & Remedial Massage
The prime purpose of sports massage is to help alleviate the stress and tension that
can build up in the muscles during physical activity. Where minor injuries due to
overexertion and/or overuse occur, massage can break them down quickly and effectively.
Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way
of performance and achievement.
This treatment is not just for the sports person, anyone can benefit from sports
massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and people who experience
occupational, emotional and postural stress which can produce many similar characteristics
to sports injuries.
Sports massage tends to be deeper and more intense. It is based on the various elements
of Swedish massage and often incorporates a combination of other techniques involving
stretching, compression, friction, toning, and trigger point response techniques
similar to Acupressure and Shiatsu.
As a trained sports therapist my aim is to use a range of these techniques within
your treatment and provide you with advice during treatment, to ensure you can achieve
optimum performance and to provide injury-free training and minimise post event injuries.
Follow up support or advice after your sports massage treatment
All clients are invited to remain in touch via email or telephone. Even if you only
ever come for one treatment you are very welcome to get in touch for advice or referrals
to other practitioners at any point in the future. You may wish to go over what was
discussed during the session – to revise stretching procedures for example.
30 minute and 1 hour appointments are available depending on requirements.
