Sports Massage Therapy

Soft tissue therapy that can be employed before, during and after an event or training as a means to prepare or maintain the body in optimal condition for performance. It also promotes recovery between sessions and can be used as a preventative measure for injuries, as well as treatment to aid the recovery of injuries.


Dry Needling

A treatment similar to acupuncture, which involves the use of fine, solid filiform needles to treat the dysfunction of skeletal muscle and connective tissues. This involves the stimulation of the muscle fibres at the treatment site to release myofascial trigger points, reduce muscular tension, increase blood flow to the area; which can accelerate healing of avascular structures like ligaments, and return symmetry to the body.

Cupping Massage Therapy

A combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and, using a pump, a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue away from the body. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically. To the treatment area this negative pressure relaxes muscle tissue and supporting structures, draws out stagnated blood from previous injury (or trapped from dysfunctional structures), pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body. This can also alleviate a range of pain causing factors. The intended suction can range from light to heavy, depending on how many pumps are applied to the cup. This, along with the movements performed and areas treated by the therapist will produce stimulating or sedating (draining) effects.



An increasingly popular treatment for myofascial restriction, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) uses specially designed stainless steel instruments or tools to provide a mobilizing effect to areas of the body restricted by myofascial adhesions or scar tissue from previous injury, as well as creating therapeutic erythema (blood flow) to dysfunctional/injured tissue and help disperse chronic inflammation. It may also be used to define and accentuate musculature on bodybuilding athletes prior to competition.

Recovery Compression Trousers

Compression trousers involve the use of ice water and inflatable plastic trousers that have a compound effect; they deliver a cryogenic effect on the lower body, while compressing the legs to promote recovery after intense training sessions. As the trousers fill with the ice water, they expand to tighten around the legs. The combination of the cold and compression of the legs prevents excessive inflammation and muscle pain following training by flushing the muscles of lactic acid and other metabolites.

Myofascial Release

A manipulative treatment that helps to release tension in the fascial structure of the body. This tension may be caused by intrinsic or extrinsic trauma, poor posture or inflammation. It involves applying gentle sustained pressure to the connective fascia restrictions to eliminate pain and restore optimal motion.

Active Recovery

The assignation of low-intensity exercise following intense training sessions/events. Through the use of lower intensity, higher volume exercises and/or workouts, recovery can be a means to encourage blood flow to certain areas – leading to increased nutrient distribution to the muscles that need it most to recover, and/or aid venous return from others to flush the body of the metabolic waste products associated with intense training sessions.

Hot and Cold Stones Therapy

He use of volcanic basalt and marble stones at varying temperatures to enhance the effects of traditional therapeutic massage. The volcanic basalt holds hot temperatures very well and can be used to impart great heat when placed about the body. This penetrative heat is more efficient that simply working in with massage as it is much quicker and lasts longer. The marble stone holds cold temperatures very well, and when used in conjunction with the hot stones, can provide a refreshing contrast to the treatment areas. The stones may be simply placed and left to do their work, or they can also be combined with various massage techniques to work into the body and relieve muscular tension and promote the recovery of injured/dysfunctional tissues.
