Sports Massage Therapy in Nottingham

What are the benefits of Sports Massage?

The benefits of sports massage therapy can be three fold. It can be successfully used to prevent injury, assist in recovery from injury and also to maintain posture and soft tissue health. Massage can help with removal of toxins from the system by encouraging the drainage of lymphatic fluid from the tissues. Regular massage also has benefits to stress management and relaxation.

Massage therapy addresses all elements of the triad of health; mental, chemical and structural. My sports massage therapy services in Nottingham include the following…

Could You Benefit From Personal Training

Deep Tissue & Fascial manipulation

Regular deep tissue massage can help restore a balanced posture and improve functional movement. Fascia is a network of connective tissue which spreads through the body like a web. Alterations in the fascia brought about by injury, inactivity or overuse can cause pain, stiffness and restricted motion. Fascial Manipulation aims to restore full function back to the fascial system.

Specific points on the fascia known as Centres of Co Ordination (CC) are targeted for deep tissue massage. The CC’s treated are selected based upon symptoms, movement tests and palpation and so each treatment is tailored for the client. Effects of the treatment are often immediate and can be effective for months. After an initial consultation and assessment clients undergo a short series of treatments lasting 30-40 mins. Treatments consist of deep tissue massage on the selected CC.

Tool Assisted Massage Nottingham

Specially designed steel massage tools are used lightly over the skin. The tool aims to influence the superficial fascia facilitating tissue gliding and restoring freedom of movement. This works well on stiff joints as well as tendon and ligament repair.

Assisted Stretching

Assisted stretching is a more relaxed way to experience a flexibility routine. In a seated or lying position allow your therapist to manipulate your joints into the perfect position to target specific muscles and fascial lines.

Kinesio Taping Nottingham

Kinesio Taping

K tape is a type of sports tape that can be applied in a variety of manners and is used for predomenently for injury rehab and prevention. The tape structure allows it to stretch only in one direction and allows it to function even when wet. The method of application is altered based on 3 primary functions of the tape…

  • Increased muscle activation and decreased muscular pain.
  • Lymphatic drainage / swelling reduction.
  • Structural / postural support.

The application of the tape will differ depending on the required outcome but aims to influence neural feedback from skin and muscle receptors, lymphatic flow through lifting the skin and structural support through limiting movement. The tape is cut and applied to fit your requirements which typically takes 30mins. It can remain in place for 5-7 days.
