Remedial Massage

Sports massage is a practical, no-nonsense massage treatment which aims to stretch tight muscles, stimulate inactive muscles and improve soft tissue condition. It enables the body to move more freely, and over time can help improve posture and flexibility to the muscles. Massage is popular for sports men and women as it can enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury, however there are advantages that all people can benefit from, including those listed below:

•  chronic pain
•  postural problems
•  osteoarthritis pain
•  muscle pain/tension
•  aiding recovery after sports
•  recovery from injury/operation

Common problems for professional and amateur sports people from running, rugby, golf, football, cycling, swimming, horse riding, volley ball and racket sports of all kinds can include: 


•  tight legs needing regular maintenance,  

   rejuvenating and advice on injury

   prevention  
•  shoulder impingement, tennis elbow 
•  tight arms where grip is used 
•  trauma from impact

You don’t have to be an athlete to pick up an injury or suffer with poor mobility, and I see many clients who have been working behind a desk for 7 hours, 5 days a week!

 

Frequent or common issues that people can face include:

•  office workers typically have neck,

   shoulders and repetitive strain issues 
•  labourers with all types of muscles aches

   and pains

•  arthritic changes and muscle tension
• stiffness due to lack of mobility or loss of

   confidence in using your body
•  postural changes due to age

•  chronic headaches

Regardless of your background most people will suffer some sort of repetitive strain or posture related issues, and my treatments will have a positive affect on most conditions. 

 

 Remedial 'massage' includes techniques that have developed from traditional methods and have been combined with other techniques. The aim is to release tight muscles and to stimulate repair of a specific injury and compensations.

 

Combined with massage the following 

techniques provide an extremely effective treatment:

•  Soft Tissue Release (STR) - A mechanical

   lock and stretch technique to stretch and

   'unstick' congested muscle tissue
•  Muscle Energy Technique (MET) -

   stimulation of the nervous system,

   enabling muscles to be stretched and to

   encourage inactive muscles
•  Neuromuscular Technique (NMT) - using

   the nervous system to eradicate pain and

   tension. Trigger points can also be

   deactivated using this technique
•  myofascial release and connective tissue

   work
•  positional release

  Remedial Massage concentrates on deep tissues for the treatment of sporting and physical injuries including bad backs, muscle damage, whiplash and any trauma related issues.
