Aches and pains occur for all sorts of reasons – injury, inactivity, postural imbalances, over-use or misuse and can happen to anyone at anytime. Over the years we have successfully treated athletes to accountants, musicians to mountain bikers, golfers to gardeners suffering from a range of ailments – headaches, dizziness, trapped nerves, rotator cuff problems, shoulder impingement, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, low back pain, sciatica, shin splints, calf strains, ITB problems, repetitive strain injury and many more.
Our treatments include a combination of soft tissue and stretching techniques which act to relax and lengthen compacted tissue helping to restore optimal balance of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system and healthy joint function. This can help reduce pain and improve mobility, function and performance. Postural education and corrective exercise is part of the process and helps you prevent recurrence.
Sports massage enhances your performance by keeping your muscles in top condition and preventing injury, re-injury and muscle fatigue. If you’re serious about your sport, sports massage is a valuable addition to your training regime keeping you on track and minimising injuries so you can perform to your expectations on the day. Pre-event massage tones and peps your muscles up prior to performance whilst post-event massage helps your muscles recover by gently flushing away metabolic wastes.
“Maureen’s assistance during my Iron Man training was invaluable. I couldn’t have completed it without her knowledge and understanding of what I needed at each stage of my training programme and then resume my normal training as quickly as possible afterwards .” SB, Preston
