Sports Massage & Other massage techniques
What is Sports Massage?
Sports massage is typically aimed at athletes, or those who perform regular exercise, to optimise performance, or to help post exercise recovery. It is however is beneficial for anyone from all walks of life to alleviate the stresses and tensions that may arise in soft tissues from daily life, occupational stress or physical exercise.
Massage may help promote a self of well being, and aid in relaxation. It can also boost blood supply to muscles helping in recovery, and to break down scar tissue to help tissue repair.
Our therapists may use more than one massage technique during your treatment to obtain the best result such as hot stones, bamboo or deep tissue techniques.
The therapist will obtain a thorough consultation pre - treatment to obtain your health status, and discuss your expectations.
You may be given advice on further treatment or any stretches that may help you.
