Sport and Remedial Massage
Sport and remedial massage is one of the most effective ways of treating muscle injuries and pain. As well as treating soft tissue injuries, massage can help to prevent injuries from occurring. Sport and remedial massage is not only a huge benefit to the athlete but to anyone that is suffering from pain and discomfort. Everyday lifestyles can often take their toll on the body, from sitting at the desk from 9-5, to stress and tension from work and outside influences to general poor posture. Sport and remedial massage can benefit anyone offering relief from pain and tension, relaxation and help the body naturally recover and repair.
Soft Tissue Release
Soft tissue release assists with the stretching of muscle fibres, tendons, ligaments and fascia. The technique involves manipulating the soft tissues through an application of pressure in conjunction with the movement of the associated joint, repeatedly stretching small areas of soft tissue. This is a very specific technique which can be a quick and effective way of releasing local areas of soft tissue tension, breaking down scar tissue and working on adhesions.
Clinical tests are used to assess both joints and muscles which help identify issues such as tight muscles, weakened muscles or damaged soft tissue or joint structures. The outcome of the assessment can help structure a treatment plan specific to the clients needs. Sometimes this may mean referral to another healthcare practitioner for further examination depending on the condition.
