Although it is commonly known as “Sports Massage”, it could be argued that just as appropriate a title would be “Remedial” Massage Therapy. This simply means using manual therapy techniques to try to remedy a problem, regardless of your sporting activity, or lack of it! I believe that to offer a remedy you must do more than just relieve pain, you must also be able to understand how the problem came about inorder to stop it happening again in the future. To achieve this, I offer a range of advanced soft tissue techniques as well as essential rehabilitation procedures. As well as dealing effectively with a range of musculoskeletal problems this can be used to help in recovery and reduce the symptoms in many medical conditions too.
Many people use Sports Massage as an essential tool in their training, ensuring they maintain healthy bodies, and avoiding needless injury.
