Injury rehabilitation is beneficial for anyone who has suffered an injury, in general such as work or gardening and so on and sports injuries which can interfere with your lifestyle dramatically, whether you’re a competitive athlete, involved in recreational play or just preventing you from carrying out daily activities.
Sports massages are typically performed before, during or after an event. This helps to prepare the athletes for optimal performance. Massage involves the manipulation of muscles and the soft tissues of the human body which helps to reduce tension, flush out toxins and promote balance in the body and mind. There are a wide range of benefits including improved circulation, improvement in joint mobility and flexibility, the breakdown of scar tissue, reduce oedema (swelling) and can help remove the build-up of toxins.
Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage focuses on deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, which is especially helpful for chronic and tense areas of the body, such as a stiff neck, lower back and shoulder tightness. Using specific strokes, this type of massage is powerful and vigorous ensuring the deeper tissues are reached. Massage can also uplift an individual’s emotional state and may also help reduce insomnia. Problems which respond well to massage include: muscle tension or spasm, pulled muscles, and postural problems.
Medical Acupuncture is based around the function and structure of the human body. The principles are taken from anatomy, physiology and neurology which involves placing needles into various locations to treat chronic pain.
