An individually tailored form of soft tissue massage that can use specific techniques to treat stress, tension and fatigue that occurs through occupational, recreational or sporting activities.
Massage is an ancient form of therapy that has been around for thousands of years. It is effective and very safe, and can help to ease pain, release tension, inducing relaxation and promoting a feeling of well being. By working on the soft tissues, Massage stimulates the muscular and nervous systems, and improves the blood circulation and lymphatic flow. This enables fresh oxygenated blood to repair the body tissues and metabolic waste products and toxins to be eliminated. This in turn allows the body to function more efficiently and counteract the debilitating effects of stressful modern-day living.
Remedial and Sports Massage is a deeper form of soft tissue massage which uses specific techniques to treat physically active individuals, who may be more vulnerable to injury because of the stresses placed on the body by their sport.
Remedial and Sports Massage is particular effective in treating minor soft tissue problems, dealing early on with small aches and pains before they develop into more serious overuse injuries. It is also very good in the pre-sporting event situation, either to stimulate or relax and post sporting event to aid relaxation and help recovery.
You don’t have to be a sports person to feel the benefits! Muscular tension, stress and fatigue can affect all of us, whether competitive or recreational athletes, dancers musicians, gardeners, housewives or stressed executives. Active or sedentary, you will find massage relaxing and therapeutic.
