If fitness is your life. Massage is your prize.
Sport Rehabilitators help people suffering from pain, injury or illness involving the musculoskeletal system. They help people of all ages to maintain their health and fitness, recover from and prevent injury and reduce pain using exercise, movement and manual based therapeutic interventions.
Shockwave Therapy, or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), is a non-invasive technology that delivers sound waves to affected areas of the body and aids recovery. Shockwave Therapy is no longer the preserve of the sporting elite! It has become widely accepted in clinical practice for the treatment of chronic soft tissue injuries. Results for treating chronic tendinopathies and chronic muscle injuries are seen through improved range of movement and reduction of pain.
Western medical acupuncture is a therapeutic modality involving the insertion of fine needles; it is an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture using current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology and the principles of evidence based medicine.
Sports massage works deep in the muscles, realigning the muscle fibres and connective tissue and flushing away the toxins. Regular sessions will increase joint mobility and flexibility and reduce the risk of injury during exercise.
