Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy is not just for sports people , it helps many people who have never played sports !
It is a proven method of relieving pain, increasing movement and improving performance in your specialized field whether it be on the track or easing tension and stress whilst in the office.
Sports Massage is a no nonsense technique that deals directly with the bodies soft tissue. It has developed over the years to deal with specific conditions within the human body that are affected due to repetitive / overuse or overloading of the joints and muscles.
When injuries to the muscles occur the fibres become mis-aligned. Our muscles are covered with a layer of connective tissue known as Fascia. This Fascia covers all the muscle fibres and is one continuous piece of tissue. Normally the muscle is soft and pliable in a healthy body but when injury occurs our movement is restricted and postural misalignment occurs, the fascia / muscle becomes hard and scar tissue forms trapping toxins and causing pain and discomfort, which leads to a series of structural compensations which lead to further pain and problems throughout the body.
Therefore Sports Massage is just as important to an office worker who spends hours at an unsuitable desk as it is to an Olympic athlete suffering from a torn hamstring.
Like sports people we all have challenges in life, whether it be physical, mental or emotional, so it is appropriate that we give our bodies the same quality of treatment !
So whether you are a Bodybuilder, athlete, office worker, builder or just suffering from stress and tension, this type of treatment is designed around your specific needs so you can expect a tailor made session every time.
