Remedial Massage


For everyday aches and pains


Remedial Massage is a technical and targeted massage, focused on identifying dysfunctional, tired or 'tight' muscles and working into them in a very pinpointed way. 

In remedial massage, the main aim is to get blood flowing to the effected area in order to release and heal 'tight' muscles. Remedial massage can be a little sore as you are likely coming to the massage table for a specific reason, and we will be heavily concentrated on that area during the massage. The aim of the massage, however, is not to hurt you. After a period of initial soreness, I would hope that this would ease off nicely and that you'll feel very relaxed and 'loose'.


Regular maintenance massages will help with the onset of aches and pains caused by historic injuries, a sedentary lifestyle or stress.​

            The Effects and Benefits of Remedial Massage

                 The effects of Sports Massage are divided into three categories: physical, physiological and               psychological.

​Physical

  • Improves circulation of blood and lymph

  • Increased tissue permeability to improve the removal of waste products

  • Stretching out muscles and fascia which cannot be reached by 'conventional' means

  • Breaking down sticky adhesions between muscle bundles and relieving muscular tensions/knots which can have a huge effect on levels of stress

  • Assist with the breaking down of scar tissue

​Physiological

  • Pain reduction through removal of waste (lactic acid) and stimulation of receptors which release endorphins

  • Relaxation of mind and body through warmth, touch, circulation and stretching

  • Balancing out Autonomic Nervous System activity​

​Psychological


  • ​Feeling loose and free from tension

  • Reduction of anxiety through release of endorphins.​


 

Sports Massage


For preparation to, warm down from and maintenance in between sporting endeavours

Sports Massage is a highly skilled and energetic massage, focused on treating sports people for the purposes of pre-event preparation, post-event warm down, keeping a sports person in ongoing optimum condition through their training schedule and injury prevention.

In pre and post event massage, the main aim is to get blood flowing around the body in the most effective way to support the athlete. In a pre-event massage, this is making sure the tissues are ready and the muscles are warm, and in post event massage, aids in the removal of toxins and lactic acid from the blood, allowing the muscles to relax and recover most effectively. Both pre and post event massage will help to lessen aches and pains after rigorous sporting activity and will allow the athlete to return to peak condition at the quickest possible opportunity.


Regular maintenance massages between sporting events will help keep the soft tissues supple, discourage the formation of knots and serve in the prevention of injuries.

Regardless whether you're an Olympic athlete who needs regular massage for an extra competitive edge, or a keen local tennis player with a historic injury which sometimes gives you trouble, sports massage has a place for anyone who likes to stay healthy and active.​
