    Sports Massage

    Sports massage can improve range of movement, help to prevent injury and enhance

    performance. With assessment, sports massage can work with specific muscles to promote quicker recovery from exercise and / or injury.

    Clients can expect to undergo a postural assessment and range of movement testing to help understand the nature and source of their injury or pain. Treatments make use of advanced sports massage techniques such as soft tissue release, neuromuscular techniques as well as stretches and myofascial release.

    Massage services are offered on a mobile basis visiting clients in the comfort of their own homes(or other convenient location) .

    Swedish Holistic Massage

    Massage is for everyone.

    Whilst the relaxing effect of massage on the muscles is well known, massage has a positive influence on all the systems of the body, benefitting your overall health and well-being.

    Some of the specific benefits of regular massage include:

    • Greater flexibility and range of motion, reducing your chance of injury, through stretching and relaxation of the muscles and clearing of scar tissues and adhesions.
    • Reduced chronic pain, muscle aches, spasms and headaches, enabling you to enjoy a better quality of life
    • Increased blood circulation improving muscle tone and the blood flow to the extremities of the body
    • Reduced chance of Repetitive Stress Injuries and muscle imbalances by relaxing tight muscles to promote improved posture
    • Detox of the muscle tissues by stimulating the lymph system to aid the removal of toxins
    • Lowered blood pressure through relaxation and release of tight muscles causing peripheral resistance
    • Stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system encouraging the body to relax, repair and renew
    • Increased endorphin production (the body’s natural painkiller), helping you to relax and feel at ease
    • A boost to the immune system, reducing the chances of infection by stimulation of lymphocytes (antibodies)
    • Improved quality of sleep, so you can feel at your best for the day ahead and remain focussed.
    • Lowered stress levels, so you can enjoy better balance in all aspects of your life

    During a Swedish holistic massage we work to relax the whole body with the aim of promoting total well being in body and mind. Holistic massage uses a light touch to relax muscles and works to reduce tension, tightness and toxins to improve the overall health of your muscles and body systems.

     

    Seated On-Site Massage

    Stress in the work place decreases productivity, reduces morale and reduces performance. Whilst it is not possible to remove stressful situations it is possible to manage it and this is where massage can help!

    SeatedMassageSeated massage is an effective method of reducing stress, increasing positivity and productivity whilst creating a feeling of well being amongst employees. Massage can:

    • Stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage, increasing energy levels and inducing calmness
    • Boost the immune system, which is weakened by constant stress
    • Ease muscle tension to improve posture and reduce likelihood of Repetitive Strain Injuries
    • Enhance self esteem and give comfort through the sense of touch
    • Release endorphins – relieving pain and encouraging relaxation
    • Stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system which slows the body down, encourages deeper breathing, lowers heart rate and promotes better digestion
    • Minimise stress related conditions such as insomnia, headaches and back ache by relaxing all systems of the body
    • Stimulate the body’s natural ability to repair and renew at cellular level

    A seated massage takes a short time for each person and therefore does not interfere with the work flow of the day and will leave your staff feeling energised, motivated and relaxed, allowing them to achieve peak performance.

    So take care of your business by taking care of your employees and book an onsite seated massage session.

    Effects Of Massage

    Movement – The movements in massage suck fluid through blood vessels and lymph vessels. By increasing the pressure in front of the stroke, a vacuum is created behind. This is especially important in tight or damaged muscle tissue as a tight muscle will squeeze blood out like a sponge, depriving the tissues of vital nutrients and energy to repair.

    Increased tissue permeability – Deep massage causes the pores in tissue membranes to open, enabling fluids and nutrients to pass through. This helps remove waste products such as lactic acid and encourage the muscles to take up oxygen and nutrients which help them recover quicker.

    Stretching – Massage can stretch tissues that could not be stretched in the usual methods. Bundles of muscle fibres are stretched lengthwise as well as sideways. Massage can also stretch the sheath or fascia that s

    Break down scar tissue – Scar tissue is the result of previous injuries or trauma and can effect muscle, tendons and ligaments. This can lead to inflexible tissues that are prone to injury and pain.urrounds the muscle, so releasing any tension or pressure build up.

    Improve tissue elasticity – Hard training can make tissues hard and inelastic. This is one reason why hard training may not result in improvements. Massage helps reverse this by stretching the tissues.

    Opens micro-circulation – Massage does increase blood flow to tissues, but so does exercise. What massage also does is open or dilate the blood vessels and by stretching them this enables nutrients to pass through more easily.

    Pain reduction – Tension and waste products in muscles can often cause pain. Massage helps reduce this in many ways including releasing the bodies endorphins.

    Foot therapy

    Relaxation – Muscles relax through heat generated, circulation and stretching. Mechanoreceptors which sense touch, pressure, tissue length and warmth are stimulated causing a reflex relaxation.

    Anxiety reduction – through the effects mentioned above relaxation is induced and so reduces anxiety levels.

    Invigorating – if massage is done with brisk movements such as what would be done before an event then this can produces an invigorating feeling.
