Sports & Remedial Massage

Our Sports Masseurs have undergone extensive training in most forms of massage and soft tissue techniques. They are experienced Sports Masseurs, experienced in Remedial Massage, Aromatherapy and many additional soft tissue techniques such as Trigger Point therapy, used to release knots in muscles.

Sports Massage

  • ¬†pre-event sports massage — this is usually a short, stimulating massage 15 – 45 minutes before the event. It is directed toward the parts of the body that will be involved in the event.
  • post-event sports massage — this is ideally given within an hour or two of the event, to assist the body to recover quickly from the event.
  • ¬†restorative sports massage — given during training to allow the athelete to train harder and with less injury and maximise their full potential.
  • rehabilitative sports massage — aimed at alleviating pain due to injury and returning the body to health. This may be very complementary to Physiotherapy and speed up the rate of progress.

Remedial Massage

This is often a lighter form of massage, although it can include deep tissue massage and trigger point work. As with Sports Massage the vigor of the techniques can be altered to suit your preference.

It may –

  • ease tired and aching muscles
  • assist recovery following an injury, accident or operation
  • assist with mental and physical relaxation

Aromatherapy Massage

This is massage but using specific Essential oils to assist your recovery back to Well being.

Our Sports Masseur can advise on the best form of massage for you if you are unsure as to which is better for you
