Sports, Therapeutic and Deep Tissue Massage

Both Sports and Therapeutic massage are an effective form of deep tissue massage which complements osteopathy. Deep tissue massage works on the soft tissues of the body, helping to improve circulation and healing so restoring good function of the muscles. Treatment aims to improve the flexibility and suppleness of muscles and joints, helping to prevent damage occurring in the future.

As well as the numerous physiological benefits, massage can help to:

  • ease deep muscular tension
  • relax and aid general well-being
  • promote improved flexibility and mobility of muscles and joints
  • promote recovery from injury
  • reduce stress and anxiety

Each session focuses on the individuals requirements and will include home exercise plans and advice to enhance the benefits of treatment and to aid rehabilitation where indicated.

Pilates

Pilates is a body conditioning method designed to build strength in core postural muscles. It can help to correct muscle imbalance and to improve posture, muscle tone and flexibility, so building strength from the inside-out.

Pilates can play an effective part in many injury rehabilitation programmes as it emphasises controlled flowing movements so avoiding the muscle and ligament damage associated with other fitness regimes.

Pilates is often recommended by osteopaths (as well as other medical practitioners) for people with history of back pain, as the creation of a ‘girdle of strength’ is one of the primary aims of pilates, achieved by strengthening the core postural muscles which stabilise the torso. Pilates is suitable for those new to exercise as well as professional athletes. Step by step you will learn good movement skills that build up the strength you need to perform the more advanced classical exercises.

1-to-1 sessions available. Please contact us on 0117 3770518 for more information.
