SPORTS MASSAGE

The human body has approximately 640 skeletal muscles, its no wonder we sometimes need a little help!

 

Massage can help with;

 

  • Reduced muscle tension

  • Improved circulation

  • Stimulation of the lymphatic system

  • Reduction of stress hormones

  • Increased joint mobility and flexibility

  • Improved skin tone and elasticity

  • Speedier healing of soft tissue injuries

  • Increased energy levels and mental alertness

  • Can aid balance within the digestive system

  • Helps improve sleep pattern

 

What To Expect 

 

On the first consultation clients will be required to give their full medical history to ensure that any medical conditions are treated accordingly. There are some cases for whom massage may not be suitable or for those requiring their GP's consent, for example prescribed medication and clients undergoing surgery. If you are in any doubt to the suitability of a massage, please do get in touch as soon as possible. 

 

Many people assume a sports massage to be very painful, this should not be the case. A firm pressure is needed to release tension in muscles, however I will always ensure the treatment stays within your comfort levels.  

 

Clients may experience some of the symptoms below after a massage, however everyone one is different! Some clients may experience some of the following;

 

  • Emotional response 

  • Severe tiredness

  • Slight bruising/aching muscles

  • Headaches

  • Excessive urination/bowel movements

  • Increased thirst

 

Clients are advised to have a relaxing few hours if possible after the massage, drink plenty of water to help flush out the toxins released during the massage and to eat lightly during meal times for the rest of the day.
