Sports massage is an important treatment for any sportsman or sportswoman. Whether they are injured or experiencing loss of mobility, sports massage can help restore mobility to injured muscle tissue. With regular treatment, sports massage can boost performance and extend your overall sporting career. This form of massage has a number of benefits that are physical, physiological and psychological.
Christopher is a qualified and experienced massage therapist with knowledge in sports, remedial and soft tissue therapy. Having worked in this field for more than 14 years, he has the ability to apply a wide range of techniques based on the individual needs of each client, and is highly regarded for his sports therapy treatment. Professional athletes and social sports players alike have all enjoyed carefully tailored treatments that allow them to return to the physical activity they love sooner.
Sports massage therapy utilises deep tissue remedial massage techniques that firstly relax and warm the muscles, then release and lengthen the muscles. Sports massage can also promote flexibility, reduce fatigue, increase endurance, help to prevent injuries, and prepare their body and mind for optimal performance. Sports massage can also assist with joint mobilisations and stretching and strengthening techniques to free up joints, helping to strengthen weak muscles and improve flexibility. Furthermore, sports massage treats and assists in the prevention of specific sports-related conditions or injuries such as tendinitis, muscle strains and sprains, shin splints and plantar fasciitis.
Christopher has a wealth of experience in a variety of massage therapies, including deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and remedial massage. With each session, he will discuss your personal needs as well as offer advice on the best practices for you outside of your treatment.
Christopher is available at the Enfield clinic Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and at his other clinic in Ramsgate between Thursday, Friday and Saturday. He is also taking on patients in Sutherland Shire, so feel free to get in touch if you wish to book an appointment or to discuss availability.
