Sports Massage

Although sports massage techniques are used as part of a rehabilitation therapy, I also offer it as a stand alone treatment for individuals, organisations and clubs.

 

There are three main categories this usually falls into...

Pre-training massage

To open up the muscle fibres, increase the blood flow and motor neuron communication to the muscles and generally prepare the body for the rigours of training and competing.

Post-training Massage

To help flush out toxins built up which can lead to muscle fibre damage and injury. And to encourage new blood flow and nutrients to help with repair.

Interim & Maintenance Massage

To keep muscles joints and connective tissue in optimum condition, and help to avoid accumulative injuries like RSI and occupational related defects from occurring.
