Sports & Remedial Massage
What is Sports & Remedial Massage?
Here’s how it can help you!
Sports & Remedial Massage is a variety of massage techniques that are used for the treatment of muscle, tendon & ligament problems.
Using subtle manipulation of the both the muscular skeletal system (bones – skeleton, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints & connective tissue) & the neuromuscular system (nerves communicating messages from the brain to muscles & vice versa) Sports & Remedial Massage affects both systems leading to long lasting results.
Some of the benefits include:
Reduced muscular pain by reducing tension, adhesions, scar tissue & realigning muscle fibres
Improved flexibility & quality of movement
Promoting relaxation & reduce stress by calming the sympathetic nervous system
Managing muscle imbalances improving movement & postural alignment
Activating underused muscles & deactivating overused muscles restoring muscle balance
Reducing the risk of injury by keeping soft tissue structures healthy & working optimally
Improving recovery from training & physical exercise
Supporting injuries during the healing process, promoting full recovery allowing safe return to activity
The aim of Sports & Remedial Massage is to identify areas that may be tense, restrictive, adhesive or fibrotic & treat these areas using a variety of techniques to stretch, stimulate & improve soft tissue condition. Sports & Remedial Massage enables the body to move more freely & can overtime improve posture. It is popular with sports people as it enhances performance, aids recovery & prevents injury but you don’t have to be a sports person to feel the benefits!
