As the health and well-being of our athletes and clients is at the heart of everything we do, we have decided to suspend all face to face activities with immediate effect and until at least the end of April. This includes all massage therapy sessions and 1:1 and group training & coaching sessions.
This decision has been taken with a heavy heart and is in line with the advice we have received from the relevant professional and sporting governing bodies, Public Health England the the NHS to help us keep people safe and healthy.
During this period we will continue to provide remote training & coaching plans as normal to our athletes.
During these uncertain times please follow all the latest advice provided by Public Health England and the NHS and keep yourselves safe, fit and healthy.
Sports Massage Therapy helps maintain the body in a generally better condition, prevents injuries and loss of mobility, cures and restores injured muscle tissue and can help improve sporting performance and/or movement in normal everyday life. It also helps relieve the stresses and tensions of everyday life. Sports Massage consists of a variety of techniques that work deep into the soft tissue and may help to provide some of the benefits listed below:
Improved range of motion and flexibility
Improved functional muscle balance
Increased usage of available muscle
Reduced risk of injury
Improved recovery from training, racing and injury
As an integral part of a regular training programme, sports massage can help develop and maintain strong, flexible muscles that are in balance with each other, thus improving performance and reducing the risk of injury. Sports massage will help release muscle tension and stress and remove the general aches, pains and niggles that can build up over time. Should injury occur, massage helps to restore mobility and function and aids your return to normality with minimal interruption.
Anyone can benefit from sports massage, not just athletes; people in physically demanding jobs and those prone to postural problems can all benefit from massage. Anyone who wants to improve their general wellbeing or health or who has a soft tissue condition can benefit from a sports massage.
