At the Bodywork Centre Hexham we offer many different types of massage treatments including Sports & Remedial Massage
Overview of a sports massage
Unlike relaxation massage, sports and remedial massage uses deeper techniques designed to release tension from muscles and their attachments. Some clients describe it as “massage with a purpose”. It is also a method of identifying potential ‘problem’ areas early before it become a serious issue. If necessary a referral can then be made to a different practitioner such as an Osteopath.
Benefits of a sports massage
Minimal muscle tension.
Higher range of movement.
Scar tissues improvement.
Better recovery by raising blood circulation to the affected spot.
Mitochondrial development, which is the power station for muscle.
What To expect
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
