Massage Therapy | In-Clinic

Sport Performance & Recovery

Physical activity often leads to myofascial trigger points—muscular knots caused by repetitive motions, overuse, or micro-injuries. These can result in soreness, restricted flexibility, and decreased performance. Evidence-based techniques release these knots, providing relief, reducing soreness, enhancing flexibility, and accelerating recovery.

WHO BENEFITS

Ideal for active individuals, including fitness enthusiasts and professional athletes, seeking to maximise performance and speed up recovery through deep tissue techniques.

TREATMENT METHODS

Appointments may include:

Joint Mobilisation
Techniques to improve joint function, reduce pain, and restore range of motion.
Myofascial Release

Gentle, sustained pressure to alleviate muscle tightness and improve flexibility.

Cupping Therapy

Suction cups stimulate blood flow, reduce soreness, and aid recovery.

Percussion Therapy

High-frequency vibrations penetrate deep tissues, relieving tension and enhancing performance.

Dry Needling

Precision needle placement alleviates pain and improves muscle function.

Passive Stretching

Assisted stretching increases flexibility and range of motion.

Heat & Cold Therapy

Alternating applications reduce inflammation and promote healing.

Photobiomodulation

Red light and near-infrared therapy promote cellular repair, reduce inflammation, and accelerate recovery.

WHAT TO EXPECT

After booking, you’ll receive a new patient form via email to complete before your appointment. The first appointment includes a 15-minute consultation to discuss your medical history. Treatments are conducted on bare skin in targeted areas; fully clothed options are available upon request. Post-treatment, enjoy a seasonal organic tea or filtered alkaline water with trace minerals to enhance recovery and support vital mineral uptake.

Frequently
Asked Questions

How does massage therapy contribute to muscle healing?

Massage therapy, particularly mechanotherapy, has been scientifically proven to accelerate muscle healing and enhance strength. Through consistent and tunable compressive forces, this therapy clears immune cells and removes inflammatory cytokines, fostering optimal muscle fiber regeneration.

Can massage therapy influence the immune system?

Yes, there is a clear connection between mechanical stimulation and immune function. Massage therapy not only expedites muscle healing but also has the potential to regenerate various tissues, including bone, tendon, hair, and skin. This drug-free, non-invasive approach offers promise for patients with conditions preventing drug-based interventions.

How does massage therapy impact muscle regeneration at a cellular level?

Massage therapy effectively removes immune cells called neutrophils and associated cytokines from injured muscle tissue. This process enhances muscle fibre regeneration by reducing inflammation and promoting optimal muscle function. The therapy's ability to influence the immune system in a drug-free, non-invasive way is considered remarkable.

Is massage therapy applicable to different types of injuries and age-related muscle loss?

The potential applications extend to various injuries, age-related muscle loss, and muscle performance enhancement. This indicates the versatility of massage therapy in addressing a range of conditions.

Can massage therapy benefit in recovery and sport performance?

Yes, many individuals swear by massage therapy, including the use of massage guns, to rehabilitate their bodies. Massage therapy contributes not only to faster muscle healing but also to enhanced muscle strength, making it beneficial for athletes in their recovery and performance.
