Sports and Remedial Massage therapy combines traditional massage with deep soft tissue manipulation and advanced stretch techniques.
The aim is to ease off the stress and tension that occurs throughout the body, caused by everything from elite sporting performance to the demands of everyday life. With repetitive overuse or over exertion, injuries and minor lesions often occur. These problems need to be given the best possible chance to heal correctly.
Massage breaks down the lesions and ensures that the involved soft tissues restore themselves to their maximum functional potential.
Incorrect posture and movement patterns cause certain muscles to become weakened and lengthened, while others will become tight and shortened. With a sound anatomical knowledge, the therapist is able to effectively target and work through those shortened and tight muscles. This will relieve muscle tension and restriction, thus restoring correct length. Remedial exercises to activate the weakened and lengthened muscles are also advised where appropriate.
By increasing range of motion, tissue flexibility, and encouraging relaxation throughout the body, the treatment works to obtain optimum performance and physical conditioning. Sports massage is both a safe and non-invasive treatment.
It is important to note that stress and tension come from all aspects of life. Therefore anyone can benefit from sports massage.
