Q – I am not a sporty person, is Sports Massage for me?
A – Yes, anyone can benefit from Sports Massage. Muscle tensions often develop through incorrect posture or repetitive movements, that are nothing to do with sport.
Q- Do you do deep tissue massage?
A- Yes, it is incorporated into my usual Sports Massage and is used amongst many other techniques.
Q- Does Sports Massage hurt?
A- Some deeper techniques that I use may make you experience some discomfort depending on the state of your muscles, however, all treatments are always performed within your own pain threshold. I will, therefore, be constantly asking you to give me a pain level number between 1 (no pain) and 10 (unbearable).
Q- What should I wear?
A- Comfortable underwear. During the whole session, you will be covered with a towel, only the part of your body that is being worked upon will be exposed.
Q- How many treatments will I need?
A- This is completely dependant on the condition of the soft tissue and the length of time it has been troubling you.
Q- Can Sports Massage be harmful?
A- It is a non-invasive therapy, but certain conditions can prevent treatment:-
Acute injuries & fractures (massage can help restore muscle function after the healing process has finished)
Deep Vein thrombosis Varicose Veins (massaging away from them is okay)
Infectious skin diseases
