What I can do for you

Massage
Sports Massage – Deep Tissue – Indian Head massage – Remedial massage
 
Massage really is for everyone, you just need to find the type that best suits you!
Massage is commonly used to treat muscle tension, general aches and pains that typically arise from stress, injury, poor posture or movement dysfunction. Sport/Remedial Massage can be used for the general relaxation of the musculoskeletal system as well as being directed into local problem areas, thereby reducing pain and improving recovery.  Massage can help increase blood flow to the lymphatic system, improve circulation, relieve pain and aid relaxation to enable quicker recovery from injury and high training loads. Massage also helps towards preventing further injury.  You don’t have to be a sports person to benefit from massage.
 
 
 
Sports Massage 
This type of massage can be tailored to pre and post event massage. Maintenance massage during training blocks to keep your muscles fresh and suptle so you can continue your training load progression.  One of the advantage of regular sports massage through your training, it can help to highlight any imbalances that may start to occur as you progress your training. Being able to sport these signs early can help to reduce future injury and start to work on those areas to create a stronger and balanced platform.
 
Benefits of regular sports massage
– Reduce the chance of a niggle becoming an injury
– Increased mobility and flexibility
– Reduce muscle tightness and pain
– Regular massage can help you sleep better
– Massage increases blood flow to the muscles, which increases the amount of oxygen to the muscles and helps
with recovery.
 
Deep Tissue and Remedial Massage

The pressure of a massage can be adjusted to you. That could be a deeper/ firmer massage to relieve neck tension from working at a desk. Or a massage for you to relax and get that feel good factor, relieve stress and take some time out.

 
Indian Head Massage
A massage focused on the head and neck area. This is a lovely massage to have and can be done fully clothed if required. Using acupressure points to achieve a relaxed calm mind. The aim is to relieve mental as well as physical stresses, that have accumulated in the neck, head, face and shoulder muscles.
Fascial Release

Fascial Release is a slow deep subtle technique. Which includes slowly melting into the fascia to stretch and release through the fascia.

Benefits 

Relaxing

Can help to reduce fascial and muscular tension

Improve blood flow

Can reduce fascial aches, pains and restrictions

 

Why should I have fascial release work? 

Releasing the fascia can then allow the muscles to move more freely, with hydrated and healthy fascia. The fascia is a connective structure that weaves in and out through the body. It can hold emotional stresses and physical tension.  Which over time can cause dysfunction through pain and reduced movement.

Cupping Therapy
What does it do?
Cupping works with the meridian points (energy lines) the same as acupuncture does.  Where as new research and practice also uses the cups for massage and myofascial release.  The cups lift the skin and fascial layers, drawing up the old non-circulating stagnant blood from the area and increasing blood flow. The increased blood flow brings more nutriance and oxygen to the area, promoting the repair of the tissue.  Paired with massage (with cup or manual) you can then encourage the waste products to the lymph’s to be removed from the body. The lifting of the superficial muscles and fascial layers inside the cup, paired with the movement of the cups can create a stretching effect.
 
How can you benifit from Cupping?
 Increase blood flow to the area being cupped
 Reduce muscle pain and muscular tension
 Relaxation
 Reduce Congestion in the nervous system
 Lifts and stretches soft tissue to separate fascial restriction
 Increase range of movement and flexibility in joints
 Move waste products in the muscles, enabling normal lymphatic flow.
 
Cupping Therapy can be used as a relaxation treatment, Deep Tissue Massage and
on the Meridian Points.
Taping and Strapping

The main type of taping I use is dynamic tape – this supports the joint without restricting movement, with four way stretch. Also on an area of injury we can use the tape to lift and support the load in the area.
