Remedial & Sports Massage Therapy is just that. Therapy.
Massage is a versatile tool and can be invaluable in the treatment of a diverse range of problems. Clients come to the clinic for many reasons:
Frustrated clients unable to return to exercise due to old injuries and scars causing pain.
Clients with busy lifestyles that are stressed, tense, and need to unwind.
Clients who spend a long time in one position and experience tightness & stiffness when they move around.
Muscular aches, pains & stiffness?
Sports related injuries and niggles that impact your enjoyment or performance?
Stress, tension and generally feeling uptight?
Pain when moving a certain way, or when bending or lifting?
Old injuries that cause pain, or hinder peformance?
Stiffness from sitting at a desk all day?
Runners, cyclists, triathletes and many others are prone to muscular injuries. Injuries may be mechanical, but can often be due to an individual’s particular biodynamics (way of moving), inherent muscular imbalances and non-activation of important muscle groups that are needed to support the movement.
Sports massage and remedial therapy can work to pinpoint the problem areas and work on releasing the tight musculature and fascia that is impeding movement, or causing pain. It comprises of remedial, deep tissue and holistic massage techniques and is completely bespoke to you and your needs.
Releasing tight and overused muscles can result in a greater range of movement and improved performance, as well as helping you to enjoy your chosen sport, pain free.
Amateur athletes who clock up a lot of mileage should consider sports massage as an integral part of their training regimen in order to keep the body pain and injury free, and to hit those PB’s. Regular sessions will keep you in peak fitness.
As the name implies, this massage will deal with the aches and pains you are experiencing that need not have any sporting connection. Once assessed, the massage will target the required areas and employ a number of techniques dependent on the client’s needs. This could involve deep tissue massage, or a gentle holistic massage that simply reduces tension, and leaves the client with a heightened sense of wellbeing.
Everyone will benefit from a wellbeing massage, as it can reduce muscle tension and pain
– improve the mobility of joints and range of movement
– improve rehabilitation after injury
– improve circulation
