Whether you have a niggling sports injury or suffering from tight muscles and stress, a massage can work wonders.
Swedish massage is generally what’s considered a full body massage, as it usually works on all major muscle groups in the body. Swedish massage can increase one’s flexibility because it stretches the ligaments and tendons. Swedish massage is specifically designed to relax the muscles. It also helps flush the body tissues of uric and lactic acid and other metabolic waste. Massage oil or lotion is used to ensure the smoothness of the strokes. The Swedish massage is best while lying naked on a massage table but partially covered by a sheet. I partially cover the person with a towel, rather then a sheet. Swedish massage benefits your mind and your body. Leaving you feeling totally refreshed and relaxed.
Athletes who are looking to improve performance and increase their competitive edge do so by adopting a training schedule to enhance their skill, strength, stamina, suppleness and speed.
What are the benefits of Sports Massage?
Massage is probably the most effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the muscular-skeletal system. Received regularly this may help athletes prevent injuries which might otherwise be caused by overuse. A constant build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves. I tend to give, a slightly lighter sports massage. This can be firmer if the client prefers. I find it’s a kinder approach to a sports massage, which I have found to be more comfortable for my clients.
Massage has gone a long way and Remedial Massage Therapy has excelled Massage into one of the best forms of therapy as it requires no chemicals to work and the results can be enormously positive.

Her deep-tissue massage worked absolute wonders and gave me immediate relief from the pain, and a significant improvement in mobility. Lucy is hard-working, professional, engaging and friendly, and above all extremely effective. I would definitely recommend her, particularly for anyone suffering from sciatica or related problems. I will definitely be using her services again.Jimmy
