Sports (Deep Tissue) Massage
This type of massage is focussed on the preparation, repair and recovery process for sportsmen and women, but can reap great benefits for anyone that requires a deep tissue massage.
This can be adapted so that the massage techniques are applied in a way that is gentler for clients that do not like a deep tissue massage. It is also possible to provide a very effective back and neck massage to clients who are still wearing loose clothing.
My Approach to Sports Massage
I qualified at St Marys University, Twickenham, London where I learnt the techniques to apply a deep tissue massage alongside the study of Anatomy and Physiology.
This type of massage is focussed on the preparation, repair and recovery process for sportsmen and women, but can reap great benefits for anyone that requires a deep tissue massage. It is worth emphasising that I apply the appropriate level of pressure on a case by case basis, which following a one-to-one consultation will be agreed by the client, and so it is perfectly achievable to offer anyone a gentle massage.
In addition, I can adapt massage techniques so that a client can benefit from a brilliant back and neck massage whilst still wearing loose clothing.
I can also bring my knowledge of Tai Chi and Tui Na (Chinese Massage) to combine improved Chi flow if the client would like this additional approach, combining the best of West and East. The Tai Chi and Chinese Yoga experience along with my PT skills allows me to recommend many effective stretch techniques for a client to work on at home.
In my opinion everyone should have a regular massage.
