Sport & Remedial Massage
These methods are used as a combined therapy in order to achieve a variety of results, which are beneficial to anyone, not just the sports performer.
As part of your initial appointment you will be asked about your weekly routine, any current aches and pains and what you wish to gain from this therapy. A postural and biomechanical assessment will then be carried out to pick up on any currently contributing or potentially predisposing factors.
From this information a personal treatment plan will be developed using a variety of the following techniques in order to meet your goals:
- Muscle Energy Techniques
- Neuromuscular Techniques
- Soft Tissue Release
- Positional Release
Where appropriate you will also receive postural, preventative and home care advice to optimise your treatment and prevent further problems.
