  • Sports Massage

Sports Massage is an effective & beneficial form of physical therapy, not only for active sports people, or those requiring therapy after a soft tissue injury, but also for those people seeking relief from muscle tension or requiring massage for the maintenance of healthy muscles.  Massage can also help individuals who want to relax from the stresses of everyday life.

Benefits of a Sports Massage:

Massage is the most effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the Musculoskeletal system.  Received regularly this may help athletes or active people prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse.

A constant build-up of tension in the muscles from regular activity or poor postural biomechanics may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves.   Sports Massage can be used to treat the stress, tension and fatigue that occurs through occupational, recreational or sporting activities.

 


It can also be beneficial to:

  • Help relieve that stress and tension which can hinder optimal performance.
  • Reduce the likelihood of injury during exercise.
  • Speed up the recovery process and aid rehabilitation after injury.
  • Ensure full range of movement and increase muscle flexibility.
  • Improve postural and general body awareness
  • For the more serious athletes sports massage can help at the different stages of participation. For example:
  • Pre competition
  • Inter competition
  • Post competition
  • Injury Recovery
  • Injury prevention

You don’t have to be a sports person to feel the benefits!

Muscular tension, stress and fatigue can affect all of us, whether we are competitive or recreational athletes or have active or stressful lifestyles. Active or sedentary – you should find massage relaxing and therapeutic. Sports Therapy & Massage is also widely used in the corporate world for companies to assess & treat work related problems.

Studies have shown a decrease in sick days amongst workers who regularly receive soft tissue treatments. It can have a positive influence both Physically & mentally.

Soft Cupping Massage

Soft cups are glided across the skin for a deeper relaxing massage. This promotes deep muscle pain relief, increases motion and improves lymphatic drainage.

The aim of cupping is to create a vacuum; this encourages blood flow to the surrounding area causing a small inflammatory effect but at a much quicker rate than the traditional massage techniques. This inflammatory response activates chemical mediators triggering the body’s natural healing response.

Ultrasound images have revealed that the effect can reach 4” below the skins surface. Soft silicone cups are used to enable a gliding effect and creating a negative pressure which makes it suitable for those who cant tolerate the positive pressures of a traditional massage. The cups are used to draw toxins to the body’s surface where it can be safely removed by the lymphatic system.

Cupping can be used as part of a lymphatic drainage treatment which requires the lightest of touch , facial rejuvenating treatments, cellulite reduction, scar softening or general massage including deep tissue. Pressures can be adjusted to suit the clients needs.


Soft Cupping explores the science of tissue gliding, traction and decompression and has many benefits. These include:

  • Improved Circulation
  • Muscular & skeletal problems – increasing range of movement, loosening adhesions & providing pain relief
  • Improves skin texture & tone by gently stretching the fibroblast cells. It also encourages the increase of natural collagen & elastin.
  • Helps soften old scar tissue
  • Relieves tension and fantastic for relieving Headaches & Migraines
  • Balances the nervous system by working the meridians and encourages the free flow of Qi.
  • Helps with metabolism & detox
  • Gentle enough to use on fibromyalgia patients who find positive pressure too painful.
  • Opens chest & lungs as works directly on the intercostal muscles so great for congestion or asthma.
  • Facial cups help drain sinuses effectively
  • Cellulite reduction
  • With the cups being moved regularly it is unlikely to leave marks unlike the traditional glass cups but holds the same benefits.

Myofascial Cupping

is a modified version of the ancient Eastern style Cupping, specifically targeting the musculoskeletal system. This type of soft tissue therapy involves the application of decompressed cups on the skin, creating a vacuum effect that lifts up underlying tissues such as the fascia, muscles, blood and other fluid close to the surface of the skin. Cups are generally left in place for ten minutes, although this can vary. The skin will normally redden due to congestion of blood flow and some circular bruising is to be expected and may stay visible for up to 2-8 days.


Benefits of cupping include:
– Stimulate blood flow
– Drain lymph and cellular debris
– Separate layers of connective tissue to bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues
– Soften tight muscles
– Relieve deep muscular tissues and reduce muscle spasms
– Lift and stretch soft tissue to separate fascial restrictions
– Move stagnations of lactic acid and metabolic waste and enable normal lymphatic flow to promote healthy circulation and help strengthen the immune system
