What to expect from your Cardiff Sports massage
Sports massage can have a reputation of being painful and clinical. Depending on your needs we do try to apply this treatment in a holistic way. We focus on the physical mechanism that needs work, yet we try to address the contributing factors that may cause the issue and address it with suggestions on how you can improve posture or exercises that can help improve strength and proprioception. This treatment is also beneficial if you have recently had an injury and are looking to improve strength and tissue quality. By having sports and remedial massage in the regeneration stage of repair after an injury (depending on what the injury it is of course) will help assist in functional scar tissue formation and stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to create a shift in a more relaxed state where healing can occur.
We combined traditional massage strokes such as effleurage, petrissage, simple lymph drainage, trigger point therapy, and fascia release.
We will also add advance techniques when suitable such as: (MET) muscle energy technique, neuromuscular technique(NMT), positional release, soft tissue release (STR).
Sports and remedial massage can be “deep tissue” but gentle techniques can also be very effective. Don’t have this type of massage put you off if you fear it may be painful. This style of massage can still be very effective if it is gentle.
We tailor the treatment to suit your needs. Whether you are looking for something gentle and restorative to deep and vigorous.
