Sports and Remedial Massage still appears to be misunderstood by the majority of people I speak to until I explain what I actually do and the incredible benefits of this treatment.
When you present me with a pain or discomfort, my main focus is to identify the cause rather than simply address the symptoms. I will use the anatomical lines of the body to help me assess, locate and treat the dysfunction in the most effective way. I choose and explain to you the range of massage techniques I use to release and realign the soft tissue fibres to not only achieve the best results for you, but also help you understand how your body works.
In the vast majority of cases, muscular dysfunction is due to poor posture caused by muscular imbalance, but you probably already know that and that this is affecting your symptoms. However, few people are aware of how the activities they do every day are the main contributors. The human body is fantastic at adapting to small injuries, which cause these imbalances, and it can sometimes take several months, even years, for the symptoms to present themselves.
When sports massage is combined with specific exercises to strengthen weaker muscles, it can produce fantastic results in a relatively short amount of time, although this is rarely achieved in just one or two sessions.
Sports and Remedial Massage is suitable for the majority of people, however, prior to all sessions you will be required to complete and submit a New Client Form online so that I can ascertain any contraindications you may have and recommend an alternative approach first, where appropriate. It also allows maximum possible time during the session to talk to you and ensure you receive the right treatment plan for your complaint.
