Sports/Remedial Massage

Sports and remedial massage involves assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of soft tissue injury and muscular pain.

The focus is on remedial work, to ‘remedy’ the issue rather than just treat the symptoms, i.e where it hurts. This ensures we get you feeling and moving better with lasting results.

The site of your pain is all too often  the ‘victim’ of compensations in the way you move rather than the problem itself. We need to assess the whole body  to understand the real root of the problem, requiring a truly holistic approach.

Sports massage is a form of manual therapy, however it is definitely not reserved for sports people and everyone can benefit from the assessment and treatment skills of this powerful therapy. If you experience chronic back or neck tightness due to your work or activity habits, suffer tension and headaches through anxiety or stress or feel that you have poor posture driving your pain, sports massage can be extremely effective.

Benefits of sports and remedial massage 

  • Extremely effective for injury recovery and prevention
  • Thorough assessment helps to identify faulty movement patterns that drive re-occurring pain/injury
  • Relief from muscular pain and dysfunction
  • Increased range of movement and flexibility
  • Improved sporting performance
  • Postural awareness
  • Improved post event recovery, aiding blood and lymph flow to facilitate recovery
