What is Sports and remedial massage? 

Massage is an integral part of the training regime of top competitors and helps prevent injury. However, the benefits can be experienced by all regardless of age, fitness and activity levels.

The basic methods of Swedish massage are used along with more advanced techniques such as joint mobilisations and specific stretches. Massage treats the person as a whole giving you a truly personalised massage, offering exercise and postural advice as required.

Ideally massage should be used as a preventative form of treatment removing pain and dysfunction, creating balance, relieving stress and generally promoting a sense of deep relaxation and well being.

However, if you have an injury remedial massage works extremely well in the treatment of a wide variety of muscle and skeletal conditions i.e. back, neck and shoulder pain, muscle sprains, repetitive strain injuries, whiplash, sciatica, frozen shoulder, tension type headaches and migraines.
