Sports & Remedial Massage

Sports massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. Whatever you do with your body, at whatever age you are, if you are physically active you will benefit from sports massage. Sports massage improves circulation and helps provide greater endurance. It also helps prevent injury by warming up the muscles, and helps repair injuries caused by repetitive use.

Sports and Remedial Massage is a deeper massage treatment that loosens up tight muscles, breaks up adhesions in muscle fibres, and generally focuses on restoring and/or maintaining the full functionality of your muscles. It can help your muscles perform better and prevent injury. Muscle injuries will often heal more effectively with the help of sports massage. Among the many conditions that often improve with sports and remedial massage are:

“As a seriously committed athlete it is inevitable that I suffer the occasional sports injury, from a torn hamstring to a simple muscle twinge. As a result I have often visited Wendy over the last three years. She has not only provided effective remedial massages; she has also given sound practical advice on self help exercises designed to minimise the period of time spent in recuperation. I have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone involved in physical sport” Sam Freck
