Our highly skilled massage therapist is experienced in sports massage and remedial massage, working with athletes and sporting organisations to offer pain management and injury rehabilitation. Massage therapy can work in conjunction with other physiotherapy treatments to encourage the body’s healing process while minimising pain.
Sports Massage Cheltenham
Sports massage is often used in recovery after the body exerts itself during a game or training. The focus is on flushing the system and working through the muscles, improving recovery times and lessening the chance of injuries. The techniques and pressure used vary depending on the athlete’s individual training program.
Sports massage differs from remedial massage because the focus areas are less specific. Your massage will involve general strokes to free any fibrous tension without causing additional pain.
Remedial Massage Cheltenham
As the name suggests, remedial massage is used as a remedy or cure to a problem, focusing on precise areas of tension or knots. This style of massage can be a general, all-over therapy, or it can be targeted to a specific problem such as the shoulders and neck.
Remedial massage may include myofascial therapy, trigger point therapy and dry needling to meet specific recovery goals.
