Sports Massage helps alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity, overexertion and/or overuse. It is fantastic for preventing those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.
However sports massage is not just for the sports person: anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and those not quite so obvious such as desk workers (occupational, emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries).
Sports massage tends to be deeper and more intense, it incorporates a combination of techniques involving stretching, compression, friction, and trigger point response techniques similar to Acupressure and Shiatsu. Revive brings together this blend of techniques, knowledge and advice during treatment, to work effectively with the client to bring about optimum performance and to provide injury-free training and minimise post event injuries. Sports massage is suitable for maintenance massage, pre and post event treatment and rehabilitation.
Sports Injury Treatment
There is never a good time to get a sports injury or suffer from chronic on-going niggles that just wont go away. No matter what your injury, how minor or major it is, we are here to advise. Treatments begin with a consultation to assess what the problem is and how it came about; we will also ask questions about your medical history and what medications you are currently taking. You will then have a manual assessment to determine the extent of the injury, followed by a treatment tailored to your needs. Treatment can include mobilisation, massage, ultrasound therapy, spinal manipulation, medical acupuncture and kinesio taping.. with the added bonus of all of these being included in the one price!
