TREATMENT TYPES

Sports Massage

Sports Massage utilises a range of different techniques to reduce pain & discomfort, improve & enhance muscle performance, develop flexibility and increase range of movement. It is essential in helping to repair and restore mobility after an injury, shortening any recovery time, accelerating healing. Our professional training has given us a detailed knowledge of the body’s anatomy & physiology necessary to assess and treat clients. Although its name suggests that it is exclusively for sports people, in fact these techniques can equally be adopted for injuries, aches and pains, which occur through any occupational and reacreational lifestyles.

 

Kinesio Taping

Inspired by Japanese chiropractor Dr. Kenzo Kase, he developed a muscle treatment in 1979 that he named the Kinesio Taping Method. This taping method gently lifts the layer of skin and attached tissue covering a muscle so that blood and other body fluids can move more freely in and around that muscle.

 

Scientifically inconclusive, there is much anecdotal evidence that this treatment is effective and is now widely used throughout elite sport and more and more for rehabilitation and as well as a preventative treatment.

Sports Therapy

As Sports Therapist’s we are able to help our clients with common muscular complaints such as back pain, mobility problems, postural problems and work related conditions enabling then to return to full functionality.   Injuries treated vary according to the sport or activity involved and can for work place injuries be used to treat, for instance; 'repetitive strain injury'. We are able to advice on prevention of injuries and can examine, assess and treat those that do occur, as well as helping with the rehabilitation process.

 

 

Medical Acupuncture

Medical Acupuncture (sometime referred to as dry needling) is used for soft tissue and joint problems and pain relief. Beneficial when more 'deep' treatments are not appropriate, it is very effective. It is also considered one of the safest treatments available.

Massage through pregnancy is both functional and therapeutic.  It’s designed to deal with the changes a mother-to-be will experience during and after her pregnancy. 

 

These will include postural changes, hormonal changes, possible weight gain and the emotional ups and downs. Pre and post natal massage benefits the wellbeing of the mother and baby.
