Being a keen sports person myself, I have a real interest in helping people to reach their full potential in their chosen sport. If you're a marathon runner, triathlete, cyclist, swimmer or like me, just like to keep fit, then sports massage is the treatment for you. For many years I have treated sports people competing in races such as, 10km, half marathons, marathons and triathlons all the way up to ironman. Whether they want to run their personal best or just cross the finish line, everyone wants to achieve the best possible results from their body.
Training for a big event can take its toll on your body and regular massage treatments leading up to an event can enhance your performance, reduce the risk of injury, speed recovery and allow you maintain intensive training.
Common injuries such as; runners knee, ITB issues, achilles tendinitis and strained muscles can be minimised or avoided with regular treatments.
Sports Massage will ease stiffness and pain in tight muscles and joints. Sports massage also aids mobility, increases energy levels and often improves the rate at which the body recovers from injury and illness.
Sports massage is used to enhance strength, performance and speed in athletes and to remove toxins and lactic acid after exercise. Many different movements and techniques are used in sports massage. Examples of these techniques include Classical Massage Strokes; effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), compression, friction, tapotement (rhythmic striking), vibration, gliding, stretching, percussion and trigger points.
You can book a sports massage treatment on Contact & location page. My clinic is conveniently based at Pineapple Dance Studios only two minutes walk from the Covent Garden underground station in Central London.
