Sport and Remedial Massage
This is a hands-on therapy where the therapist massages the soft tissues of the body e.g. muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is a deeper treatment than a relaxing massage and is extremely effective for the release of muscle tension, aiming to restore balance in the musculo-skeletal system. The treatment can help relieve many day today problems which are experienced by everyone and not just sport performers. Whether you are retired, a busy parent,executive or athlete, muscle tension, imbalances and poor posture can lead to a gradual build-up of pain in the muscles and problems with stressed joints and tendons.
The effects of a sport/remedial massage are:
To increase blood flow

To give greater flexibility, mobility and performance

Emmett technique is a body therapy created by Ross Emmett. It is a technique which has been shown to ease pain and discomfort, increase movement and improve quality of life. How does it work ?
The EMMETT technique involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points on the body. In a similar way to the workings of a touch-screen, the body responds to this light touch by changing muscle tension and action.
