Sports, Remedial & Deep Tissue Massage

What is Sports and Remedial Massage? Both Remedial and Sports massage involve the skilled application of a multitude of manual soft tissue techniques to help reduce pain, restore function and improve physical performance.

IS IT ONLY SUITABLE FOR THE SPORTS PERSON?

The benefits of sports massage are not only limited to the athlete, indeed soft tissue tension, stress and fatigue can affect us all, whether we are active or sedentary. Some common causes of the above include poor posture, a demanding job both physically and/or mentally, repetitive activities such as gardening and everyday activities including sitting at a desk or driving for extended periods of time. Therefore many people often achieve symptomatic relief from a good Sports massage. 

THE MAIN AIMS OF SPORTS & REMEDIAL MASSAGE: 


  • Ease muscle tension and therefore resultant aches and pains 
  • Relieve stress
  • Improve power, strength and endurance of the muscles in and around the injured area
  • Prevent injury by ensuring correct movement biomechanics 
  • Enhance sporting performance by increasing the efficiency of the soft tissues
  • Improve mobility and flexibility of joints

Other benefits include reducing soft tissue inflammation due to an increase in lymphatic drainage and thus removal of waste products, a reduced heart rate and improved circulation within the venous system back to the heart because of mechanical assistance.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A MASSAGE TREATMENT? 

 On the initial visit our massage therapist, Jonathan Martin, will take a medical history to ascertain relevant information about your present and past health status, he will also ask about your everyday activities and any specific sports you partake in and any injuries you may have incurred. This will be followed by a thorough physical examination to determine your specific requirements. After this you will receive your personalised treatment. This will be largely ‘hands on’ using a combination of massage techniques to release soft tissue (muscles, fascia and tendons) and in turn restore your bodies mobility and gain symptomatic relief.

Each subsequent treatment will involve a quick reassessment and will be unique to you, your fitness levels and your specific personal goals. Massage treatments will be carried out in our dedicated therapy room at our Edinburgh clinic.
