Massage for Sports & Remedial
Sports massage is a deep tissue massage that helps the mobilisation and stretching of muscles to their full length and potential. It is used in the prevention of an injury as well as speeding up recovery on new, recurring and old injuries.
Remedial massage provides a remedy to muscular dysfunction. It separates adhesion and scar tissue and helps realign damaged muscle fibres, with the aim of restoring balance within the body.
Both of these treatments are good for anyone, from the athlete to someone that wants to improve their active lifestyle or just want a deep tissue massage. They use a variety of techniques, such as Soft Tissue Release (STR) Neuromuscular Technique (NMT) and Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and Friction.
It is not uncommon for either of these massage treatments to be a little uncomfortable, sometimes known as ‘good pain’.
A relaxing, soothing massage, which everyone can benefit from. It helps relax both body and mind giving you a sense of wellbeing. It helps relieve the general aches and pains caused from everyday life, leaving you completely relaxed & refreshed.
What is Hot Stone Massage?
Hot stone massage uses Basalt stones which are made from hardened volcanic rock, carved and polished. They retain heat and glide smoothly against your skin when having a massage. The heat penetrates deep into the muscles aiding a deeper relaxation, de-stressing the muscles and mind, and increasing circulation.
Cold stones can also be used to help drain away toxins and reduce swelling from affected areas. This can be beneficial when working with sports injuries, or conditions such as arthritis, stress, back pain, and problems related to circulation, etc
This massage can be concentrated on specific areas, or as a full body treatment.
Acupressure is an ancient healing art which goes back thousands of years. The western treatment of trigger point therapy follows very closely to this.
When specific points are pressed, it can help to release muscular tension, promote circulation of blood, and aid the body’s natural healing process giving you all the benefits of a massage.
All this can be done either as part of a massage treatment or through clothing in a massage chair -with no oils needed.
