Sports / Remedial Massage
Sports massage should play an important part in the life of any sportsman or woman whether they are injured or not. It is also an important tool in monitoring muscle tone and can be particularly useful pre and post event helping an athlete perform at their very best and recover after as quickly as possible.
There are physical and psychological benefits from sports massage. During massage the body will release neurotransmitters called endorphins, these help decrease anxiety, provide pain relief and improve mood.
Sports massage may also incorporate muscle energy techniques, trigger point and active/passive stretching exercises as well as the deep tissue massage. Suitable stretching, exercises or lifestyle adjustments may also be advised in order to get the most out of your treatment.
Remedial massage treatment uses massage techniques designed to treat both deep and superficial tissues, not dissimilar to those used in sports massage. It can help individuals who experience aches and pains on a daily basis e.g from sitting at a desk all day, or driving long distances through to those who have physically demanding jobs.. The pressure and areas massaged can be adjusted to suit your specific needs.
Relaxation massage is also an option. It can help de stress and loosen up the body for those that have had a hard working week or feel like treating themselves to some TLC. The treatment consists of flowing strokes, kneading and more gentle muscle manipulations.
