What is sports & remedial massage?

Sports and Remedial Massage is a style of specialised massage techniques for the treatment of the soft tissues of our bodies, including our muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Used to target the treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries, it is a safe and effective massage treatment which can benefit anyone — people of all ages and conditions.

Sports and Remedial Massage works by targeting specific muscles, softening the hardened tissue to restore movement, ease tightness and restriction, mobility, and reduce pain. 

A typical session

A typical sports and remedial massage session will begin with a thorough assessment – going through your past history of injuries, assessing your posture, and assessing your current range of movement to get a better understanding of what is causing your issues.

Once our therapists are able to diagnose the source of your pain or injury, massage techniques are used to rehabilitate. Treatment is then done on the massage table and lasts 60 minutes.

How can sports & remedial massage help me?

Sports and remedial massage can be helpful for professional athletes, amateur athletes, and non-athletes by helping to speed up the recovery time of injuries, preventing minor injuries from becoming worse, and even identifying problems you were previously unaware of.

Sports and remedial massage can also help with:

– sports injuries
– muscle aches, pains, and strains
– muscle tension
– lower back, shoulder, and neck pain
– hip, ankle, and joint pain
– posture and body misalignment
– tension migraines & headaches
– chronic pain
– discomfort and bodily stiffness
– shin splints
– tight calves
– tennis elbow

Sports and remedial massage provides physical, physiological, and psychological benefits. Physically, it helps to break down scar tissue that can cause pain and inflexibility. Physiologically, it promotes and encourages circulation which is crucial for the building of new muscle tissue. And, psychologically, it helps to support our overall wellbeing by reducing stress, anxiety, and tension so that we can live a more fulfilled life.

What is Ayurvedic Yoga massage?

Developed by Master Kusum Modak in Pune, Ayurvedic Yoga massage is a head to toe, holistic treatment, performed on the floor mat, that helps realign the body and stimulates the natural flow of energy as well as brings about a deeper body awareness to the clients. It brings the world of ayurvedic massage and yoga together creating a multi-faceted treatment.

Working on the floor not only allows for a free range of movement and helps with the flow of the treatment but it also gives clients a sense of security and sense of feeling grounded allowing for a deeper relaxation.

A typical session

The treatment starts with deep tissue oil massage where a therapist uses hands as well as feet to warm up the muscles, soft tissues and organs whilst facilitating breathing and improving the body’s circulation. A blend of natural oil and topical ayurvedic herb – calamus – is used throughout the treatment. The use of this root creates a pleasant exfoliating feeling, but more importantly helps with blood circulation, brings toxins out of the body and acts as nerve tonic.

The next stage (or phase) of the treatment is when assisted yoga stretches and gentle mobilisations are used to help lengthen the tissues, relax tendons and ligaments and aid renewal of the synovial fluid in the joints. All the work is accompanied by coordinated breathwork, which helps activate the parasympathetic nervous system, leaving the receiver feeling deeply relaxed.
