How can sports and remedial massage therapy help me?

Man Benefitting from Remedial Massage with Heather Smith in ShropshireMassage Benefits: Based on the information you provide about yourself, and a full posture and joint assessment, treatment is tailored to your needs.  Using a range of traditional and advanced techniques massage can:

  • Help you relax and feel better by general and deep tissue massage techniques to aid circulation and break down scar tissue/adhesions while helping to relax tense muscles.
  • Improve circulation thus increasing the removal of lactic acid, waste products and toxins from your tissues, allowing you to experience general health benefits.
  • Provide fast and immediate benefits by stretching specific areas of tension in muscles using a technique known as soft tissue release.   This helps quicken recovery for returning to work or sports training and competition.
  • Reduce muscle imbalances by stretching and strengthening your muscles through muscle energy technique leading to improved flexibility and functional movement and reduced strain on joints.
  • Promote soft tissue repair by myofacial techniques that will aid smooth movement by working on the connective tissue that surrounds your muscles and connects them all together.
  • Ease muscle tension through neuromuscular techniques where pressure is applied to trigger points to reverse reflexes that cause tension, stress and anxiety.
  • Improve your posture through advice and exercises to suit your lifestyle and increase your self-awareness for preventing injury.
