Sports and Remedial Massage:
Sports and remedial medical massage can benefit anyone with muscle pain, or looking to improve their range of movement. It addresses muscle and musculoskeletal imbalance, helps clinical rehabilitation from injury, and accelerates athletes’ recovery from intense exercise
It is a more localised treatment than typical full body massage.
Our remedial massage therapists are highly skilled and experienced in finding and treating the cause of your injury and muscle imbalance. Also, they will advise you on the best way to prevent them for recurrence.
What to expect during the sessions?
In your first session, your massage therapist will take a full medical history, and ask about your lifestyle, any exercise routine and past injuries. We will perform a physical assessment to determinate the cause of any issues, and then do an initial treatment to give temporally relief. We can provide shorts or T-shirts if you forget!
Depending on your injury or condition, you may need more than one session. The recommended number and frequency are determined by the severity of the issue, and your own availability.
In each session, we will re-assess your range of movement and pain levels, discus your treatment plan with you, and provide you an exercise program specifically based on your lifestyle.
How it works:
Professional sports and remedial massage is different from other types of massages. It combines a number of techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point, deep tissue, muscle energy technique (“MET”), and advanced soft tissue mobilisation.
These techniques prevent injuries and encourages blood circulation. Soft tissue massage releases deep muscle fibres, allowing fresh oxygen and nutrients to flow, whilst helping to remove waste products and reducing stiffness. Regular massage increases general muscle health.
Pre-and post “Event” massage
To prepare athletes for sports events such as competitions or marathons, a pre-event massage will release tight muscles and incorporate various stretches to optimise muscle elasticity. After the event, we recommend a session to help detect any nascent injuries, and remove the lactic acid that causes soreness. In the long term, this approach helps sustain higher levels of performance and remain injury-free.
We recommend to book your Pre-event massage about 5 days before the event, and your post event massage within 24 hours of the event.
