MASSAGE

Don't be fooled by its name: sports massage isn't just for athletes. It can revitalise the muscles and ligaments of every one of us.

Just the basic warm up of muscle and physical stretching out of connective tissue, can result in a healthy pliable muscle, which will make you feel relaxed.

 

 Sports massage takes care of the ligaments and tendons and releases the fine sheath, called a fascia, that covers the entire muscular system. If out of alignment, can cause all sorts of unpleasant aches, pains or injuries.

 

Sports Massage can reduce the risk of injury, improve recovery from training and help with lymphatic drainage that means toxins (such as lactic acid, which builds up after heavy training, giving you cramp) can leave the body quicker.

Stress and tension relief massage, helps to lower your heart rate and blood pressure. By doing this alone, the body relaxes your muscles and increase the production of endorphins, your body's natural "feel good" chemical. Serotonin and dopamine are also released through massage, and the result is a feeling of calm relaxation that makes chronic or habitual as well as acute or short-term stress much easier to overcome.

Massage therapy is one of the oldest methods of healthcare still in practice. I have discovered different techniques that encourage circulation in the muscles, which increases the flow of nutrients and eliminates waste products. This is particularly beneficial for those with fibromyalgia as it can reduce heart rate, relax muscles, improve range of motion in joints and increase production of the body's natural painkillers.

WHAT IS FIBROMYALGIA?

Fibromyalgia is associated with widespread chronic pain, fatigue, memory problems and mood changes. It occurs more often in women than in men, and is not a disease, but rather a syndrome that can be managed. Fortunately, fibromyalgia is not life threatening and does not lead to muscle or joint damage.

BUT WON'T IT HURT?

Because fibromyalgia causes pain and makes your body extremely sensitive to touch, open lines of communication are vital when it comes to how much pressure your muscles can endure during your session. Therefore I am very aware of your specific needs of those suffering from fibromyalgia, and I will make you feel comfortable communicating with me to ensure a soothing, massage every time. If you ever have questions, please consult your doctor before beginning any massage.

We can feel the stress in our feet, but it can also manifest itself in the other parts of our body, so it makes sense to have the feet massage as well as other parts of the body that we feel stress.

Technique

Each person is different and requires techniques specially for them. This will depend on your sensitivity levels and tender points, as to the various forms of massage, or certain methods that address your specific requests and needs.
