Our Holistic Services
Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. After a thorough initial assessment a range of techniques will be used specific to your condition and goals.
Kinesiology tape (or K tape) is a thin, stretchy, elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive. Therapeutic kinesiology tape can benefit a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries, plus inflammatory conditions.
Kinesiology tape is almost identical to human skin in both thickness and elasticity, which allows K tape to be worn without binding, constricting or restriction of your movement.
Kinesiology tape is used for treating athletic injuries and a variety of physical disorders. For the first decade after its introduction practitioners in Japan were the main users of the therapeutic kinesiology tape. By 1988 the tape had been adopted by Japanese Olympic and professional athletes before spreading across the world.
You would have noticed that more an more professional athletes use kinesiology tape to improve their sporting performance, prevent injury and allow them to return to sport quicker following injury.
Sports massage reduces muscle tension and promotes flexibility. This in turn improves performance, helps to prevent sports injury, and aids recovery. It is beneficial to all who play sport, from those who have just taken up exercise, to elite athletes.
The techniques used and the benefits of a sports massage will vary, depending on your needs:
Pre-event massage is brisk and stimulating, to loosen up muscles and prepare the mind and body for sports performance. It can be performed anything from a couple of days to immediately before an event.
Post-event massage is an important way to help your body to calm down and recover from the stress and strain of a sports event. The soft tissue is stretched and relaxed, returning muscle tension to normal. It can decrease inflammation and speed up recovery time considerably.
Maintenance massage is given between training sessions to keep the muscles flexible, and break down minor injuries and lesions that occur from overexertion. This enables you to train with less chance of becoming injured, and can also help with energy levels and motivation.
Rehabilitation If you are suffering from an injury, a variety of techniques including massage and joint mobilisation are carried out with the purpose of alleviating pain and returning the body back to its normal range of movement.
