Treatments

We offer a range of massage therapies designed to treat many different conditions.

 

From recovery after sport, injury treatments or just fixing general aches and pains.

 

Below are just some of the more common symptoms we can treat.

Back, neck & shoulder pain

In recent years, upper back pain has become a familiar complaint from people who work at computers most of the day.

 

Often, upper back pain occurs along with neck pain and/or shoulder pain which can be very nagging and even make us loose focus in daily 

Ankle Sprains

Most types of ankle sprains happen when you make a rapid shifting movement with your foot planted, such as when you get tackled in football, slip on wet grass or loose you ballance on high heels.

 

Each of us take different time to recover after an ankle sprain and rehabilitation is a very imortant part of the process to get you back to your normal self.

Sports Injuries 

Sports injuries can be caused by an accident, not warming up properly before exercising, poor technique or pushing yourself too hard.

 

Almost any part of the body can be injured, including the muscles, bones, joints and connective tissues (tendons and ligaments).I can help alleviate pain and prepare your body so that you give your best in sports.

Bad Posture

It's so easy to slouch at the office or to have a "very relaxed" posture when we're driving but a bad posture can cause certain muscles tighten up or shorten while others lengthen and become weak.

 

Daily stress can also be a factor in having a poor posture.Sports massage releases that tension to make you feel more relaxed.

Body Misalingments

When we lose proper alignment, we see joints begin to break down or wear out. This is due to uneven weight distribution. When the vertebral joints lose proper positioning and alignment, it leads to abnormal motion and movement, which affects how the brain communicates with the body.

 

We can design a personalized program which includes stretches, exercises and soft tissue manipulation to help you stand tall again.

Tennis Elbow

Most commonly caused by playing tennis, but not always, tennis elbow is a condition in which the outer part of the elbow becomes sore and tender.

 

This causes inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow. Sports massage can help to relive this inflammation and bring the condition under control.

Sciatica

Sciatica causes pain to go down the leg from the back, and may go down the outside, back, or front of the leg.

 

Weakness or numbness may also occur in parts of the leg and foot.Sports massage can help treat Sciatica by easing the pressure on the sciatic nerve through massage to the the lower back and buttocks.

General Aches & Pains

Almost everybody has likely experienced discomfort in his or her muscles at some point.Because almost every part of the body has muscle tissue, this type of pain can be felt practically anywhere. 

 

Often, people who experience muscle aches can easily pinpoint the cause or they could just feel stressed or uncomfortable.I can use a range of techniques to make you feel better. sports massage doesn't have to hurt!
