Sports & remedial massage is an effective therapy to help people of all ages and activity levels to address muscular pain or tension. Strain, injury, overuse or stress can take it's toll on your muscles and joints. Sports massage can be an excellent addition to your treatment plan to help address imbalances and improve your overall health & wellbeing.
"Excellence in care and treatment is paramount, we have a strong emphasis on treating the whole body, looking at how long standing pain and tension can manifest in different postural compensations and addressing the resulting tension."
Liz Carlyle - Pilates Instructor & Sports Massage Therapist
Our clients individual needs are at the centre of every treatment we deliver, no two clients lifestyle, symtoms or fitness are the same so your treatment won't be either. The initial assessment & treatment will go through your medical history and current problem to establish and inform you what the aims and progress of the treatment will be. Current lifestyle or sporting habits will be discussed to help identify and possible modify any factors that could be causing muscular pain or tension. This analysis, coupled with self stretching will help maximise the effect of your treatment. Whether you are recovering from an injury or joint operation, training for an event or addressing work related tension we will develop a treatment plan to suit you.
We utilise a variety of soft tissue techniques to address restrictions and scar tissue in the muscles and connective tissue or fascia. Your therapist will encourage you to give feedback to ensure the treatment is appropriate for your needs and condition. We are experienced in working alongside healthcare professionals (Osteopathic, Chiropractic or Physiotherapy), and can tailor your treatment to fit your existing rehab programme. We maintain high ethical standards and if your therapist does not feel that sports massage is appropriate then the client will always be referred to an appropriate professional. Appropriate shorts/clothing should be worn for the treatment, check with your therapist before your treatment if you are unsure.
