We use a range of sports massage techniques to treat and prevent sports-related problems (including Soft Tissue injuries and chronic muscle pain)
The principle treatment used in massage. The effect of these strokes is to pump the circulation and identify areas of tension.
This technique stimulates the circulation, loosens and softens the tissues.
This is the deepest technique used in massage and is targetted at the specific areas of any soft tissue damage, such as scar tissue and adhesions.
Neuromuscular Technique (NMT)
This technique is an extension of deep friction and pressure techniques.
Muscle Energy Technique (MET)
This technique is used to stretch, strengthen or break down fibrous adhesions. The patient's own effort and movement provide the primary force to treat the problem.
Soft Tissue Release
The therapist applies passive pressure and the movement is made functionally (active - the client does the stretch; passive - the therapist does the stretching)
