What Is Sports Massage?Sports Massage is a form of massage that works the soft tissue of the body to benefit those who take part in regular physical activity. Sports Massage is all about correcting problems and addressing imbalances in soft tissue that can be caused by repetitive and strenuous physical activity or injury. Technical stuff over! Basically I aim to find the root cause of any aches and pains you might be experiencing and through deep tissue massage, help to ease them away.
Who Can Benefit?Everyone! From young to old, couch potato to elite athlete, sports massage can benefit you. Basically anyone who engages in regular physical activity - be that going for a run, walking the dog or gardening!
Why?Maybe you have an injury that you need to rehabilitate from. Or you are a sports person that requires a regular "maintenance" massage as part of your training regime that may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury. Sports Massage can help in many different ways. If in doubt that sports massage is right for you, please do contact me to see what I can do.
How?At your first sports massage appointment, I will take on board relevant medical information and carry out a postural assessment to see if I can determine the cause of any discomfort you may be feeling. We will then discuss the treatment I propose and then carry that out. After your treatment, we will then talk about how you can help at home and see if any further treatments are necessary. Subsequent treatments will be pretty well exactly the same without the history taking.
Where?I work from my dedicated treatment room in Merrow, Guildford. I am able to come to you if required, please contact me to discuss further.
