Remedial massage sessions can include various techniques such as: deep tissue, cross-fibre friction, myofascial release, myofascial trigger points, joint articulation, and PNF stretching
Sports massage helps reduce or relieve pain and prevent such injuries that greatly affect flexibility, mobility, response time, and overall performance in athletic events. The aim of Sports massage is to prepare the athlete for their best performance, reduce fatigue, and relieve muscle swelling and tension. Integrated into a weekly training regiment, athletes may avoid DOMS, relax and revitalize muscles, and feel calmer and more focused before and after events.
Dry needling can be used to safely treat myofascial pain by using a solid filoment (acupuncture) needle into areas of tension or pain.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM) is a method of using tools to reduce pain and muscle tightness, improve range of motion and can help to speed up the recovery process following a soft tissue injury by reducing scar tissue and adhesions and increasing blood and nutrient supply to the injured area.
