Remedial and Sport Massage Therapy
Sport Massage has long been successful in both treating sport injuries and preventing them
That lead to the realisation that this treatment could be equally beneficial when applied to injuries sustained outside of sport. Called Remedial Massage, it is now used to deal with problems caused by such factors as poor posture and structural anomalies within the body.
The distinctive feature of Sport Massage is that the treatment reaches the root cause of the problem. Muscles, tendons and joints are pushed to their limit during repeated bouts of strenuous physical activity.
They burn large amounts of energy which leave behind waste deposits lodged deeply within the body tissue. The massage has to be equally strenuous,applying strength and skill to disperse these waste products into the bloodstream.
A first consultation will therefore begin with questions about your medical history, present state of health, the types of physical activity undertaken and any problems you might have encountered.
This consultation may reveal that the problem has been neglected in the past and so has worsened over time, leading to increased stiffness and pain.
Sport Massage undertaken regularly will prevent such injuries from arising and help to raise your performance to a fresh pitch.
