REMEDIAL SPORTS MASSAGE
Remedial sports massage is used to locate and repair damaged areas of the body and speed up the body’s own healing processes. The therapist will aim to balance the length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons, which restores the correct position of the bones, increases blood flow and helps heal injuries.
This massage treatment uses a variety of techniques which are highly effective and proven in relieving pain, rehabilitating injury, facilitating movement and releasing stress – whether the result of sport or leisure pursuits, a demanding job or lifestyle, poor posture, pregnancy or medical conditions such as arthritis.
Remedial Sports Massage is frequently paired with Cryotherapy.

Remedial sports massage is a specialised, dynamic deep tissue massage. Problem areas are identified in the soft tissues (muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons) and a customised treatment is provided with the aim of maximising function and restoring the body to a pain free balanced state.
The pain, injury or area of dysfunction is identified and if need be traced back to the original area of insult. Specialised deep tissue massage techniques are used that focus on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. This releases the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and more direct deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibres of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and around joints. The purpose is to “unstick” the fibres and breakdown scar tissue while releasing deeply-held patterns of tension.
