SPORTS MASSAGE AND SOFT TISSUE THERAPY

Sports massage and soft tissue therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body (muscles, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue) through various techniques including the following:

Deep tissue massage
Trigger point therapy
Myofascial release
Soft tissue release
Assisted stretching
Gait Analysis
Kinesiology Taping
Rehabilitation
Medical Acupuncture
Muscle Activation

Sports massage and soft tissue therapy is used to treat both chronic and acute sports injuries. It can also help the body recover from the stresses of strenuous exercise, relieve muscle tension and pain and help to increase flexibility and mobility which in turn can help prevent future injuries occurring.

Full assessments are carried out prior to treatment to include range of movement testing, postural analysis, pain triggers and relievers. Following this, a treatment plan is recommended utilising sports massage techniques. A post treatment plan is then provided, giving you useful exercises to carry out in between treatment sessions.
