Human Sports Massage

At some point in life, most people will encounter soft tissue problems, whether it be job related or from physical activity. Sports massage therapy can help not only those that play sport but also normal everyday people that are suffering from lifestyle and work related injuries and problems. Sports massage is not only for those with injuries or problems. It is a proven tool for injury prevention and maintenance and whilst it is a stand-alone therapy it also compliments chiropractic and osteopathic treatments.

Sport and remedial massage can have the following benefits:

  • Alleviate pain
  • Increase joint range of movement
  • Improve and maintain muscle tone
  • Improve flexibility
  • Reduce the risk of injury
  • Aid recovery from injury
  • Removal of toxins from muscles
  • Enhance pre-event preparation
  • Reduce recovery time and muscle fatigue

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation

Used in conjunction with sports massage, IASTM uses specific massage tools to stimulate a healing or physical response. It is beneficial not only for treatment of pain and injury but is also used on restricted soft tissue to improve range of movement.

Kirree-Ann is trained in IASTM by KiHealthConcepts.
