Sports Therapy and Sports Massage
How do you feel when you can’t take part?
Sports Therapy will suit the active sports person who wants to minimise their sports downtime and maximise their performance. It will suit anyone who has suffered an accidental soft tissue injury or who suffers discomfort or pain from daily activities. Alternatively Sports Massage is an excellent way for the active person who wants to stay fit, healthy and prevent injury.
The human body is like a complex suspension bridge with a skeletal framework providing the underlying stress absorption. The Soft tissue in our bodies, such as muscle, tendons and ligaments provide strength, flexibility and dynamic tension. Without them functioning well the the body is frail and weak.
If you have sustained a soft tissue injury, in your favorite activity, at work, at home or have a postural problem, Sports Therapy can help to decrease your recovery time. Treating soft tissue in the body can help relieve pain, promote healing, repair and relieve stress patterns caused by persistent strain or postural imbalance.
Sports Therapy is the treatment of muscle and soft tissue with one of the techniques used being Sports Massage. Sports massage can also be used for general maintenance to help your body stay healthy or to relieve every day stresses on the body.

Hot stones are heated up and used within the session alongside sports massage, they are used as a catalyst to help with individual needs such as tension release down to promoting recovery of an injury. Cold Stones are used to take any inflammation down and reduce the pressure of the inflammation. A mixture of hot and cold stones helps activate the body systems, to accelerate recovery
