Massage Therapy for Non-Sport People
Remedial massage therapy has excellent benefits on your physical health. If any of the joints in your body are a little ‘wonky’ then you will most likely benefit from remedial massage therapy. Most us are a little ‘out of alignment’ and this means we are over using certain muscle groups in the body. This can lead to injury, pain, muscle ache and stiffness. Remedial massage therapy can help relieve over used muscles or ‘tightened’ muscles.
Sports Massage Glasgow
A Sports Massage is ideal for people at all sporting levels and can help pre-and-post sporting events. Regular sports massage can help reduce muscle strains and pain from training and help speed up post workout recovery. If you have a sports injury you may need a remedial treatment like Active Release Techniques which quickly break down scar tissue and adhesions.
The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether you are an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.
Sports massage is not just for the sports person: anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and even those with repetitive work patterns – which includes sitting all day!
What is the Bowen Technique?
The Bowen Technique is a soft tissue remedial therapy named after its Australian innovator Tom Bowen. Unlike many remedial treatments, Bowen is gentle and involves rolling type moves across specific muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. It can often be performed through light clothing and is gentle enough to be used on everyone from infants to the elderly.
The most common issue that clients present with is back pain and here Bowen excels. Sometimes in just a few treatments even chronic back pain can start to ease. Bowen is safe for pregnant women and can help them cope with lower back pain throughout their pregnancy.
