Hectic life styles, gym memberships, poor posture and enthusiastic participation in sporting events take their toll on our bodies. Whilst regular exercise is generally good for our health, over time it can take its toll on our muscles, legs and back, all too frequently leading to injuries.

Sports massage is a powerful and effective way to treat soft tissue injuries. The massage improves circulation of the blood and lymphatic systems. This speeds up the rate at which waste products, such as lactic acid are dispersed from our bodies, relieving muscle fatigue. At the same time, the circulation of nutrients needed by muscle cells for growth and repair is enhanced.

Regular massage can identify potential problems before they fully develop, whilst training advice can be given to heighten your own awareness of posture and biomechanics during exercise to help prevent future injuries.
