FAQs

Everyone is different and everyone has different needs, sometimes a one-off session is all you need to feel the benefits and alleviate painful muscles others may need several sessions.

It really depends on what the problem is, your degree of pain and your physical needs. If you have a specific problem, a weekly massage session is beneficial until resolved. Once resolved I would recommend prevention rather than cure and therefore advise having a regular massage once every 4 to 6 weeks especially if you have a physical job or train in the gym.

Imaging your muscle looks like a raw chicken breast! Within that chicken breast (muscle) you will see lots of lines, these are muscle fibres. These fibres need to contract and relax to make the muscle work. When a muscle gets tight these fibres stay contracted, and instead of lying flat get twisted and tangled which reduces blood flow. At this point you start to notice your muscle feel tight and uncomfortable. Most of the time the muscle will relax by resting it, however if you overload a muscle constantly (usually work related), it will become increasingly tight tangled and rigid, needing some manipulation to get it back to its normal state. Massage works by lengthening and straightening the fibres, increasing blood flow, and relaxing the muscle back to its normal state.

Sports massage is a very deep manipulation of muscles and tendons. Techniques used are specific in identifying and treating tension, rigidity, and dysfunction. A sports massage should never be painful throughout, that’s just a poorly trained therapist working too hard on every muscle! However, when working on specific areas of tension we need to work deeply and consistently and this can cause some discomfort. A good therapist will find areas that need working on before you even notice they are tight. You should be able to feel the difference whilst receiving a massage where muscles are relaxed or tight.

Your first visit will require a consultation to establish health history. You will be left to undress, asked to get onto the couch and cover yourself with towels.

During your treatment, your modesty is kept throughout.

At the end of your massage, you are left to dress before aftercare advice/recommendations are given.
