Sports and Remedial Massage is not just for athletes!

Sports massage was developed to help improve sports performance by adding remedial techniques to a massage treatment to improve the body’s movement and deal with injuries and postural problems. These are often caused by the repetitive movements in most sports, but can just as easily occur through bad posture at the computer, manual work or playing an instrument.

Most people will benefit from sports massage as the deep work into the body’s soft tissue will stimulate the muscular and nervous systems rather than just offering the relaxation of a holistic massage. Physiotherapy techniques such as advanced stretching are used to increase range of movement, break down scar tissue and enhance blood flow to muscles and soft tissue.

How can Sports & Remedial Massage help me?

For athletes ……… If you are an athlete or sportsperson you are likely to stress your body by frequent training and competitions. Rest days, stretching and good nutrition will help the body recover but sometimes more is needed. Sports massage will aid circulation removing waste products from tired muscles and will stretch out muscles that have become tight from repeated use.
Many athletes use regular sports massage to help maintain optimal athletic performance. Sports massage is also an effective way of detecting minor soft tissue problems & dealing with them before a more serious injury occurs. It can be adapted to enhance pre-event preparation and warm-up, to offer assistance during an event and to aid recovery post-event.

For others……… Repetitive soft tissue problems commonly called repetitive strain injuries (RSI) can affect anyone.  A common example is the person who uses the computer for hours and ends up suffering back and neck ache, possibly pain in their wrists and a sore shoulder from moving the mouse. Or the gardener who has dug over the vegetable plot and has an aching hip and sciatic symptoms in his leg. Sports massage is just as effective with relieving pain and correcting muscular stress and imbalance caused by everyday activities.

After  surgery…….
Another condition where we have had great success is recovering movement in a joint or limb after surgery. Usually an operation to repair a joint or compound fracture requires immobilisation resulting in muscle weakness and stiffness. Sports massage can assist by breaking up scar tissue and stretching shortened muscles. Weak muscles can be stimulated and strengthened, and the patient will be asked to do simple exercises to help their own recovery.

After suffering from chronic bad back pain for as long as I could remember I was recommended to visit Trudy and her relaxed manner and amazing knowledge of the body really helped me work to correct my posture and home-working setup and I’m seeing great results already
Jason M, 39 yr old man
I decided to take up active exercise and found I was suffering from regular aches and pains in my shoulders. After a few quick sessions with Trudy I realised that I actually had tissue damage and needed to change my exercise routine. With new strengthening exercises I am able to complete an exercise class without the recurring pain
Karen M, 50 yr old lady
I have been running pretty much all my adult life and time has taken its toll on my joints and my recovery time between events has been greatly reduced which has left my training schedule almost non-existent so when I visited Trudy and she was able to help me reduce my recovery time it was like having my youth given back to me. I have now completed 5 more marathons that I thought I wouldn’t have been able to do!
