Sports Massage will help tired aching muscles to recover faster after participating in a sporting activity or any form of exercise. Sports Massage releases stress and tension within muscles and tendons, allowing them to function at their optimum.
With Sports Massage damage which occurs to soft tissue during sport can be identified and treated which allows you to keep playing injury free. Sports Massage will improve mobility and flexibility which in turn will aid performance.
Ligament and tendon damage can also be treated with Sports Massage.
Massage can be used to prepare muscles for exercise and to maintain and improve the range of motion within a joint. It can aid in the prevention of injuries whilst improving performance by helping to maintain muscles in optimum condition. Massage can help reduce anxiety, improve tissue elasticity and helps in the breakdown and removal of scar tissue which may form after injury.
Massage is also used for the treatment of specific sport and non-sport related injuries including:
With the onset of age the body becomes less able to recover or heal itself after sickness or injury. Part of the reason for this is because it does not use oxygenated blood and nutrients as efficiently.
Electro Magnetic Stimulation ( EMS ) is a non – invasive treatment which helps the body to improve this process. EMS treatment introduces variable low level electromagnetic pulses to the body. These pulses are taken up by the body and used to improve the facilitation of oxygenated blood and nutrients, which then can aid in recovery. The better the body can use nutrients and oxygenated blood the more efficiently it will work.
Treatment can be applied to the body as a whole, or to any localised area which has suffered injury.
EMS may also be used to maintain good health and well-being; there does not have to be any injury.
Reiki is a Japanese energy technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. Reiki does this by activating the relaxation response, helping the body to balance itself from a very deep level. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.
Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress. If it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Anyone can benefit from Reiki, from babies and young children, to teenagers, pregnant women, adults and seniors.
During a Reiki Therapy treatment, which usually lasts about 80 to 90 minutes, your therapist will place their hands in a series of positions over, slightly above or on your body. Clients remain fully clothed.
Most clients report that a Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around them. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit. It creates beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. It is common to feel a sensation of heat or cold from the therapist’s hands during a Reiki therapy treatment. Clients also may experience seeing different colours of lights or the release of negative energies through mild twitching of limbs. During and following a Reiki treatment, clients feel refreshed, rejuvenated and more connected to things in their life. Reiki can enable clients to handle the stress of situations better.
The benefits of a Reiki treatment are numerous and are different for each individual person. Reiki benefits people who suffer with:
Back, neck pain and joint pain
Stress and stress management
Grief resulting from issues such as loss & depression
Reiki helps people who have a “heavy heart”. It benefits clients who just do not feel connected to themselves or the world. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
