Sports massage therapy is commonly used to treat muscle tension and general aches and pains that typically arise from stress, injury, pain, poor posture or movement dysfunction. Sports massage can be used before and after sport and as part of a regular routine to help you maintain performance by preventing increased training stresses developing into longer term injuries.
However, you don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from massage. We treat many individuals with physically demanding jobs, many local builders and farmers receive treatment regularly to enable them to continue with the jobs.
Sport and remedial massage can be used for the general relaxation of the musculoskeletal system as well as being directed into local problem areas, thereby reducing pain and improving recovery. Massage can help increase blood flow to the lymphatic system, improve circulation, relieve pain and aid relaxation to enable quicker recovery from injury and high training loads as well as preventing further injury.
Massage is a natural therapy and has been used to treat musculoskeletal conditions for many years, having both physical and psychological benefits.
Remedial massage is extremely beneficial for those suffering with ongoing muscle, joint and back conditions, headaches, tension and stress relief coupled with rehabilitation exercises/stretches.
Relaxation massage helps to de-stress and loosen up your body and is great for those who have had a hard working week or feel like treating themselves to some TLC. The treatment consists of flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulations of the muscles performed at your chosen pressure. It is a pain-free way to relax both your muscles and your mind.
