Sports Massage

Sports Massage Therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend warriors. I am experienced working with Local, National and International Athletes and from an array of sporting codes.

Together we can discuss the particulars of your training and design a therapy program that will work best to enhance your performance. If you are already under the care of other heath care providers I am more than happy to base your massage session on their specific requests.

Athletes find that specifically designed and timed Sports Massage can promote mobility, minimise recovery time, reduce DOMs or injury, and prepare both body and mind for optimal performance.

Myofascial Release

Fascia resembles a 3-D fibrous spider webbing that permeates the human body. This wonderful and complex system operates as one network, covering, connecting and weaving through everything in the body including but not limited to muscles, muscle groups, blood vessels and nerves.

During our Myofascial Release sessions I will work with you to find the essential balance between stability and mobility. Treating and training fascia is crucial for high performance and central in recovery from injury, pain and dysfunction.

Myofascial Release Treatment is performed directly on your skin without oils, enabling me to accurately detect fascia restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate fascia release.

Trigger Point/ Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)

NMT is a comprehensive program based on neurological laws and combines various soft tissue techniques including Trigger Point Therapy. NMT is highly effective for chronic pain such as head aches, as well as back, neck, hip or shoulder pain. Sciatica, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and Nerve Impingement can also be treated in this manner, as can Ischemia or lack of circulation (blood and oxygen) to specific areas of the body. Trigger Point Therapy addresses localised nerve facilitation that often results in referred pain patterns.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage focuses on deeper layers of muscles and fascia. It is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. Massage strokes are slower and the pressure is deeper, concentrated on areas of tension and pain. Applied with progressively increasing degrees of pressure, while continuously monitoring the client’s verbal feedback and body’s reflex responses.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation Massage focuses on giving the client time to recover from the stresses of daily life. When you experience Relaxation Massage, you can expect a treatment that involves, long smooth gliding strokes that are rhythmic and flowing, Pressure that is deeply relaxing, but not painful, A treatment that is designed to soothe and relax you, not to relieve chronic pain or other underlying ailments.

Pregnancy Massage

Take some time out and let some one take care of you. Pregnancy Massage is a wonderful addition to your prenatal care and can help alleviate many of the discomforts such as back, neck, pelvic pain, edema, headaches and cramps associated with pregnancy. It also helps to promote a sense of well being by relaxing the nervous system, reducing emotional tension and aiding with better sleep.

Before your massage session I would advise you to have clearance from your prenatal care provider and also avoid massage in your first trimester.Your massage will be adapted specifically to your needs and ever changing body and I will adjust my techniques accordingly.

We will make sure you are comfortable before we start and for most women this tends to be in their preferred sleeping position usually side-lying supported by pillows or cushions.
