Sport & Remedial Massage Therapy

Sports & Remedial Massage Therapy helps alleviate muscle pain which can occur due to too much physical activity, poor posture or muscular imbalances which can be caused by work or lifestyle stresses and strains.

Is Sport and Remedial Massage suitable for me??
If you have any of the following then YES....

  • Tight, sore muscles due to physical exercise
  • Chronic pain or aching muscles due to your job or lifestyle
  • Headaches that could be caused through bad posture or imbalanced muscles.
  • Training for a competition and need a general muscle release
  • Stressed or anxious 
  • Recovering from an injury (post 3 weeks) 
  • Suffering from arthritis or any other joint conditions (we cannot cure your illness but we can release the muscle tension surrounding the joint, reducing your pain.)

We are NOT Physiotherapists, so please be aware before you book that we do not deal with acute trauma to the body. We specialise in chronic muscle aches and post rehab treatments. If you have had a fall or an accident we advise you to see a Doctor or Physiotherapist first before seeking our help. We will also require a doctors consent form for the following conditions,

  • Heart conditions
  • Previous stroke or deep vein thrombosis
  • Cancer history


Benefits

Sport & Remedial massage offers excellent psychological and physiological benefits such as,

  • Prevents or delays onset muscular soreness by encouraging blood and lymph flow throughout the body, preventing muscle fatigue.
  • Improves tissue elasticity and prevents muscle stiffness
  • Breaks down scar tissue which may have occured through a previous injury or  trauma
  • Releases endorphins, which help decrease anxiety, provide pain relief and improve a person's mood and state of well being.
  • Releases muscle tension and stretches the fasical tissue which surrounds the muscle
  • Removes waste products, such as lactic acid, from the tissues and encourages the muscle to take up oxygen and nutrients to help speed up recovery.
