Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Sports Massage Therapy

Some of the physical benefits of massage include:**reduced muscle tension.**improved circulation.**stimulation of the lymphatic system.**reduction of stress hormones.**increased joint mobility and flexibility.**improved skin tone.**improved recovery of soft tissue injuries.**heightened mental alertness.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Hot Stone Massage Therapy

Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

Indian Head Massage Therapy

Indian Head Massage helps increase mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders. It improves blood circulation, lymphatic flow and aids elimination of toxins and is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension. The head neck and shoulders are very important energy centres within your body.

Taping & Strapping

Taping is the process of applying tape directly to the skin in order to maintain a stable position of bones and muscles during athletic activity. It is a procedure that uses tape, attached to the skin, to physically keep in place muscles or bones at a certain position. This reduces pain and aids recovery. Taping is usually used to help recover from overuse and other injuries.

Kinesiology (KT Taping)

Kinesiology has a significant impact on a wide range of health and well-being issues. Kinesiology can:

  • Enhance learning
  • Boost sports performance
  • Eliminate emotional, physical and mental stress
  • Help with finances and decision making
  • Pin-point and eliminate allergic reactions (IMRs)
  • Help overcome past trauma
  • Identify nutritional deficiency or excess
  • Help overcome fears and phobias
  • Aid the healing of muscle injuries

Sports Nutrition

Are you involved in a competitive sport or just exercising for fun and keeping fit?! Did you know that what you eat and drink can have a huge effect on performance during training and on recovery afterwards? We can advise clients regarding what meals and snacks are best to consume, quantities and most importantly, the timing of nutrient intake.

Benefits of good nutrition practicies;

  • Better energy levels for work, rest and play
  • Improved concentration
  • Boost immune system; less likely to become run down throughout the training season
  • Boost immune system; less likely to become run down throughout the training season
  • Gain an edge on your competitors
  • Ultimately perform better when you need it most

Pitch Side First Aid

From a team point of view, quick and accurate diagnosis is important to determine if a player can continue to play or needs to retire early. For the player, early diagnosis of injury and correct advice regarding management results in the best prognosis in the shortest time possible. Research has shown that strapping pre-match has been found to prevent injuries, especially ankle/ knee/ thumb sprains, adds to the player’s confidence and allows player’s to return to play sooner rather than later.

Hamstring Prehabilitation

Mark my words, “Prevention is much better than Cure.” Anything you can do to prevent an injury from occurring is worth it. The prevention of hamstring injury comes down to the conditioning of the hamstring muscles and tendons, which ultimately involves both stretching and strengthening.

The best preventative measures involve a consistent program of both stretching and strengthening exercises. Increasing flexibility, with regular hamstring stretches, will contribute greatly to the ability of the hamstring muscles to resist strains and injury.

Hamstring Rehabilitation

Massage has many benefits but specifically for hamstring strains it can help loosen scar tissue and tight muscles, stimulate blood flow and therefore healing and aid in the stretching of the muscles

Massage should not be done in the acute stage as this may increase bleeding and prolong the healing process. The acute stage may last from 48 hours (for a grade 1 tear) up to a week for more severe injuries.
