Sports therapy is an aspect of health care that focuses on the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries.
Sports therapists use a variety of techniques including hands-on treatment, exercise, lifestyle advice and education to help prevent and treat injuries. Rehabilitation plays a key role for sports therapists as they work with you to restore all levels back to help you perform at your optimum levels.
Sport Massage is a specialised massage technique that helps to improve blood circulation, promote lymphatic drainage to reduce muscle soreness, increase joint flexibility, decrease muscular tension whilst also giving you the feeling of wellbeing.
It is designed to enhance an athlete's performance and help them reach their peak physical condition.
This type of massage is also beneficial for those who are looking for relief from pain and discomfort caused by physical activity.
Dry Cupping is another form of deep tissue massage. It works by applying glass cups on to areas of the body that feel tense.
A gentle suction will cause a negative pressure drawing your skin up in to the cup (no skin is broken in the process).
The benefits of dry cupping include releasing of scar tissue and fascial adhesions, reducing painful trigger points, improving blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, relieves pain, increases mobility and flexibilty, improves mature scars and decreases toxins.
It is an excellent way to help improve overall wellbeing.
