SPORTS & REMEDIAL MASSAGE
Remedial massage treats injury or imbalance. It involves assessing the body, then using stretching, nerve activation and manual therapy it rebalances soft tissues, including muscles. The body is then reassessed. The perfect compliment is to have a personal training session to teach you to strengthen weak muscles so that these tight muscles are less likely to reoccur.
Sports massage is not limited to athletes, it can be thought of more of a maintenance massage to relieve adhesions, encourage circulation, address the nervous system and provide balance within the body for optimal performance.
If you book in for one of our massages you will be given the appropriate massage for you. Be it curative/remedial, sports/maintenance, pre- or even post- event.
Kinesiology taping available to speed up recovery, aid drainage from site of swelling and bruising, possibly enhance performance.
