Sports and remedial massage therapy is the treatment, management and rehabilitation of soft tissue problems where there is pain, injury and dysfunction, primarily in the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body.  It is applicable to a wide range of acute and chronic conditions and targets not only sports-related injuries but also problems originating from occupational stress, repetitive strain, postural misalignment and muscle fatigue.

An initial consultation with Sarah includes a full case history and postural assessment.  The treatment incorporates: deep massage and soft tissue techniques; trigger point therapy; facilitated stretching; Structural Rebalancing and Myofascial Release.

Initial treatments focus on the immediate alleviation of pain and restriction.  Follow-on sessions take the long-term view of improving posture, increasing flexibility, strength and range of movement, balancing body structure and restoring natural alignment to the body.  Each treatment is individually tailored to the person and, if required, exercises are given for strengthening, stretching and co-ordination skills.
