Sports & Deep Tissue Massage

Staying active is a vital part of our wellbeing. When acute injury, chronic pain, or even just tight muscles restrict your ability to enjoy exercise or sports activities, Ian can help with focused massage, stretching and advice to help keep your body in good condition and moving well.

Some of the most common complaints are lower back pain and shoulder / neck tension. These can often be caused by lack of flexibility in the pelvic joint  causing muscles in the upper body to overcompensate and become tight or painful. This can also be responsiblie for lower back pain, sciatica pain or referred nerve pain down the legs.

Ian can draw on his extensive knowledge of the musculoskeletal system and experience in functional movement and rehabilitation to give you personalised treatment and advice on stretching and exercises to help flexibility and reduce pain long term

Headaches & Migraine
Image

As many as 80% of our clients mention they get headaches or neck and shoulder pain. Often these conditions can be closely related.

One of the most common causes of headaches is tight shoulders and neck muscles radiating tension up to the base of the skull which can cause tension headaches and migraines or muscles spasms that refer pain around the head.

If you are an office worker or spend most of your day looking at a screen, you probably know exactly how debilitating and distracting this can be!

Painful symptoms like this can be caused by not moving muscles enough, or over-using the same muscles with repetitive movements. Some muscles evolved to be used all the time and if they remain sedentary, or we are not activating them in the right way, they can get tight. This tighness can worsen bad posture which in turn contributes to muscle tension, and can eventually cause acute pain.

Ian can help with:

  • Trigger point massage focussed on your relieving painful symptoms
  • Remedial techniques to correct dysfunction in muscles contributing to your condition
  • Stretching and exercise advice to help keep you feeling better, manage symptoms long term and avoid acute pain
  • A maintenance schedule with discounts for regular appointments to ensure you stay on top of your symptoms and avoid muscle tensions developing into headaches and migraines
