Neuromuscular Sports Massage may be described as the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments and is mainly a manual treatment.
Trigger Point Therapy, G5 Electro-Massage & APS Therapy are also included within a forty minute treatment session.
You do need to be ‘sporty’ or suffering the effects of a sports-type injury to enjoy the benefits of treatment. Painful neck, shoulder and low back muscles, caused by too many hours of driving or sitting at your computer respond particularly well to treatment, leaving you feeling revitalised, less stiff and with a lasting sense of well being.
When the body’s muscular movement is impaired due to injury or poor posture, the fluids required by the muscles to function and repair cannot reach the areas they need to in order to lubricate the fascia. The fascia then hardens and develops a scar-like tissue, trapping lactic acid and other toxins within it. This prevents the body from healing naturally and functioning normally, thereby causing pain and discomfort especially throughout the neck, shoulders and back.
Trigger Point Therapy is applied during your treatment. A trigger point is a hyper-irritable spot within a muscle that is painful. It is termed a trigger point because it ‘triggers’ a painful response. Trigger points are located within tight bands of muscle fibers, affecting not only the area where the trigger point is located, but referring pain to other tissues & muscles. They are deactivated by the application of pressure to the specific point.
The G5 Electro-Massager is used within the treatment aiding flexibility, increasing range-of-motion and reducing pain by flushing out lactic acid build-up in the muscles. Pain caused by work and stress is greatly aided and reduced by this method
APS Therapy has revolutionised the treatment of sports injuries, pain and tight, congested muscles. APS Therapy represents the latest development in health technology, and was the winner of the Geneva Gold Medal for the best medical invention of the year. It is without rival in the treatment of pain, the mobilisation of stiff joints and the reduction of swelling without the intake of medication. APS Therapy is used during your treatment if considered appropriate for your condition.
