A number of massage therapies are available at The Sports & Performing Arts Injury Clinic and these are often incorporated into our injury treatment programmes.
However, some of these massage therapies can be used on their own to ease every day aches, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address feelings of anxiety and tension and aid general well being.
In nearly all types of massage therapy, the intention is to relax the soft tissues, increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the massaged areas, warm them, and help the body to relax.
For our sports or performing arts clients, regular massage helps to counteract the repetitive nature of their activity, reducing the risk of more serious, longer term problems developing but many people who have physically or mentally demanding jobs, sit at a computer all day or stand on their feet for long periods also feel the benefit.
In a typical massage therapy session, your practitioner will discuss symptoms and medical history, carry out a thorough evaluation.
Our massage therapies include;
Trigger Point Massage
It is important to choose a qualified massage therapist who has undertaken all the necessary training to understand the theory and practice of massage therapy.
By choosing massage therapists registered with the CNHC you can be confident that they are properly trained, qualified and insured.
