Sports Massage:

Due to the stress of modern life it is very easy to allow our bodies to become de-conditioned through inactivity. Aches and pains we just put down to over exerting or ageing can arise from poor sleeping positions, sitting down too much, unsuitable footwear or emotional stress.

This can lead to tension throughout the body. Tight muscles are more susceptible to injury and can diminish range of motion.

Each treatment is tailored to the individuals needs and will incorporate a variety of advanced massage techniques. These are used in combination to treat a range of different conditions. 

Techniques used in sports massage include:

  •  Deep tissue massage to warm up and flush the soft tissues
  • Trigger Point Therapy. This is a neuromuscular technique used to treat areas of soft tissue dysfunction. 
  • Connective tissue techniques to release local areas of fascial restriction.
  •  Soft tissue release techniques to release local areas of soft tissue restriction.
  • Muscle energy techniques (aided stretching) to treat areas of myofascial restriction and to improve flexibility, helping restore full range of movement.
  • Positional release techniques to release chronic muscle tension.
  • Myofascial release.The fascia is a continuous web of tissue that covers the entire body, under the skin and surrounds individual muscles and groups of muscles. Myofascial restrictions are not shown on standard tests such as x-rays, CT scans or MRI scans, which means they are rarely diagnosed as the cause of chronic pain conditions. However, they may be described as adhesions. People with fascial restrictions are often prescribed medication such as anti-inflammatory  drugs which will have no effect. Myofascial release techniques free up these restrictions.

Kinesiology Taping

Kinesiology taping may be offered as part of the treatment plan were appropriate.

Kinesiology is definitely the current buzzword in the field of sports medicine. This brightly coloured tape is now a very common sight at all major sporting events throughout the world and also seen at many recreational activities.

How does Kinesiology Tapng work?

Any type of trauma to the body will set off the body's protective mechanism known as the inflammatory response. The main signs of this response are: pain, swelling, heat and redness as well as restrictions to range of movement. 

When kinesiology taping is applied to the skin it causes a lifting of the epidermis microscopically which allows fluid to flow more freely. This allows blood flow into the injured area, thereby accelerating recovery and repair and also allows lymph fluid to more easily drain from the area.

This process combined with massage allows the healing process and pain management to continue for longer than would otherwise be the case.
