Sports massage is a deep and effective manual treatment. It can be individually tailored using specific hands on techniques to alleviate, tension and tightness as a result of occupational, day to day and sporting activities. Sports massage and Remedial therapy covers a wide range of techniques that can be used to enhance or relieve muscle recovery or fatigue as well as treat soft tissue injuries and aid in rehabilitation.
My uniquely tailored packages incorporate both Sports Massage and Remedial techniques that specifically help with overuse/repetitive problems, as well as other common soft tissue complaints. By incorporating Sport and Remedial Massage into your lifestyle you can reduce muscle imbalances before they progress. Problems can occur with many recreational and sporting activities and sendentary lifestyles.
Possibly the most important aspect of posture and pain is the human body’s way it responds to stress. Stress and external stimulus can alter your postural mechanics, what is in the mind is very much in the body. Muscle activation is used the re-establish the primal firing pattern for posture, ultimately creating an instant reaction to pain and dramatically changing the way you feel. It corrects compensation patterns by un-locking bad posture, and getting the right muscles working at the right time. In-depth video analysis can be used if you wish to increase power, speed and endurance for sports performance. Or before and after photos can be used if you wish to document your posture change. Because Muscle Activation starts with muscles tests to get to see the benefits immediately.

The wonderfulness that is the human touch
You don't have to be a sportsman to benefit from hands on therapy. These techniques work fantastically with desk workers, housewives well pretty much anybody. Various soft tissue release and remedial massage techniques can be used for:
Pre-training: Integrating a Sports Massage session into to your warm-up will increase your muscle circulation and flexibility, in turn reducing the likely hood of injury during the training session or competition.
Post-training: A Sports Massage after training will remove exercise toxins from your muscles, reducing and preventing delayed onset muscle soreness. This means that you can train more efficiently and regularly with quicker recovery times. It also keeps your body and soft tissues in the best responsive state.
Injury Rehabilitation: A Sports and Remedial massage will increase your recovery from an injury. Inflammation in itself will prevent a speedy recovery and lead to a toxin build up within the damaged tissue. Within my sessions I specifically work to flush out damage toxins and with various cold therapies ensure that inflammation is reduced and the healing process can begin. I will advise on how to home treat the injury and inflammation as part of the remedial/recovery program.
