Sport & Remedial Massage
Sport & Remedial Massage combines general massage techniques with deep tissue work, stretching, neuro-muscular stimulation and connective tissue release 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.
The treatment of sports injuries is the area most people naturally associate with Sport & Remedial massage, but these days it is increasingly and successfully used in the treatment of a broad range of conditions affecting people of all ages and from all walks of life.
Remedial massage therapy simply means using manual therapy techniques to try and ‘remedy’ a 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.
