Unlike the relaxing touch of a Swedish massage, this massage is designed to correct and stabilise muscles after strenuous activity. The pressure of touch is hard but not invasive and ensures manipulation of the muscle tissue to correct any issues or imbalances.
As a trained athlete or amateur professional this type of massage should become part of your regular recovery plan. It’s this kind of recovery process that helps prevent the threat of injury. This type of service has been known to both lengthen and improve the strength of the muscles. Neil can also incorporate some light stretching into this service which will improve flexibility on an ongoing basis. As another welcome side effect of this massage, many clients also experience an increase in their range of motion in limb muscles. During this treatment Neil’s hands will work wonders on your musculoskeletal system and speed recovery from sport. This treatment can also be used by clients who experience regular cramping of the muscles or ongoing soft tissue injuries.
Before selecting this treatment ensure you have consulted with Neil on any
pre-existing conditions or places to apply less pressure. Neil will need to assess your medical history. Although a sports massage is designed to have increased pressure it should never be overly painful. If at any time during your service you experience unwelcome pain, please immediately let Neil know. He can then ease back the force in that particular area and adjust your treatment accordingly.
A final word from Neil on this type of treatment is the recovery procedure. In addition to the normal process of increased water intake for hydration, Neil also recommends taking a warm bath within 12-24 hours of this treatment.
Neil has sound knowledge of sporting injuries and and rehabilitation methods. Please take time to discuss any questions or concerns you may have with Neil before selecting this treatment
