SPORT AND REMEDIAL
MASSAGE

Sport and Remedial massage is suitable for anyone of any age. I treat adults as well as children who suffer with muscular pain and dysfunction. By using a range of massage and advanced soft tissue techniques, these treatments will aid the body's return to normal health after injury or muscular skeletal disorders.

 

 

YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE AN ATHLETE TO BENEFIT FROM THIS TREATMENT?
 

Sport and Remedial massage is perfect for releasing tight muscles from occupation, hobbies and everyday lifestyles and stresses. It benefits anyone who is suffering from muscular pain or that may be recovering from an injury. It can also be used as a preventative measure to keep your muscles healthy, aligned, and to remove any scar tissue or adhesions from the tissues which could eventually build up causing pain and restriction.

 

HOW WILL SPORTS MASSAGE BENEFIT MY TRAINING?
 

Sports massage is great for athletes participating in any sport and at any level. Sports massage is very effective at preparing the body for performance. By incorporating massage into your training and competitive programme the deep and dynamic massage techniques will help reduce soreness,  relieve tension which will help restore balance to the muscles, increase mobility at the joints,  and make for faster recovery. Unfortunately sometimes injuries do occur, however sports massage and a rehabilitation programme can help speed up the recovery time.

Pre-event massage is designed to stimulate the patients muscles before an event or session. This type of treatment involves vigorous and stimulating techniques such as tapetoment. It is great at preparing an athlete mentally and physically before their performance. A pre-event massage can also be relaxing to help decrease the athletes nerves and stress levels.

Post-event treatment helps aid recovery by using long strokes to flush out waste products which help treat and prevent muscle soreness, fatigue and tightness. Passive stretching will help regain muscle resting length after an event or session.

 

HOT AND COLD STONE
TREATMENT

Hot and cold stone therapy is an advanced therapeutic massage technique, involving the use of heated volcanic basalt stones and cold marble stones.

The heat from the stone helps prepare the muscles and allows me to go deeper into the muscle layers, while applying less pressure. The extra warmth provides faster therapeutic results and deeper relaxation. It is generally accepted that one stroke of a heated basalt stone is equivalent to 5-10 strokes of a therapists hand.


BENEFITS OF HEAT

  • Increased local circulation

  • Improved blood flow to surrounding tissues

  • Decrease in pain perception

  • Decrease in muscle spasm

  • Decrease in muscle stiffness

  • Greater ability to transport toxins and waste products from the area


Cold therapy, used along with the hot stone create a dramatic movement of fluids within the body, generating a healing, cleansing, and nourishing effect due to the alternate constriction and dilation of the blood vessels. Cold also generates a toning, strengthening response to several body systems, most notably the immune system.

 

BENEFITS OF COLD

  • Dispersal of tissue congestion

  • Alleviation of swelling

  • Decreased muscle spasm

  • Stimulation of the autonomic nervous system

  • Increased tissue metabolism

  • Removal of puffiness

  • Sinus decongestion



If you enjoy your sports massage treatments, but like the idea of the hot and cold stones treatments, you can have the best of both!
