Sport & Remedial Massage
The treatment of sports injuries is the area most people naturally associate with Sport & Remedial massage, but nowadays it is used in the treatment of a broad range of conditions affecting people of all ages and from all walks of life. We fix pain and improve mobility. We help you look after yourselves even outside of our clinic walls!
Sport massage combines general massage techniques with deep tissue work, stretching, neuro-muscular stimulation and connective tissue release and myofascial manipulation to help you regain and retain the health of the body’s soft tissue. Its therapeutic effect can often eradicate the need for symptom-masking painkillers and restore movement and functionality, yet it is frequently overlooked by orthodox medicine or mistaken for a pampering treat.
Remedial massage therapy simply means using manual therapy techniques to ‘remedy’ a soft tissue problem. But to offer a remedy you must do more than just relieve pain: you must also be able to understand how the problem came about and how it can be avoided in the future. A successful treatment will not only deal with the immediate source and symptom of discomfort, but aim to slow down and eventually banish its re-occurrence.
