These treatments may help with relaxation, recovery from acute injury, relief for chronic conditions and enhance rehabilitation.
Sports massage is a specialised treatment that benefits someone who is regularly participating in physical activity or sports. Sports massage may be used to enhance both recovery and performance when used prior to or after exercise. It may also reduce tension and correct muscular imbalances (overactivity/underactivity in muscle groups) arising from strenuous or repetitive activities or injury or direct trauma. Sports massage may also restore function and prevent injury.
If you are a regular sports person looking to treat and injury or improve flexibility, performance and recovery then a sports massage is the best treatment for you!
Deep tissue massage
A popular deep tissue massage that combines traditional sports massage techniques with a lighter touch style to help both body and mind. This brings calm and release of tension from muscles and soft tissues.
Remedial massage seeks to relieve a particular muscular or soft tissue problem that may be causing pain, tension or altered functioning of the body or joint. The massage involves an initial assessment of where exactly remedial massage treatment is required and a variety of massage techniques are then tailored to your specific needs. This may help painful backs, necks (including headaches), shoulders or limbs. Pains that respond to this approach are very varied – and may be acute or chronic. Remedial massage can help recovery from postural aches and pains or from sporting or occupational injuries.
Holistic Swedish Relaxation massage
A more gentle massage aiming to reduce stress and tension in the body. This may have resulted from general physical and mental stress from day to day life activities and events. In the hectic lives we currently lead, looking after yourself is so incredibly important and relaxation massage is a great way to give yourself a regular burst of ‘tlc.’ “Self-care” and “me time” have become increasingly recognised as essential activities to stay well both physically and mentally.
