FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

What is the difference between sports, remedial and deep tissue massage?2024-02-22T15:39:37+00:00

Sports Massage – can aid the recovery of soft tissues involved in repetitive
movements such as sports, prolonged postures (sitting/driving), or manual work.
Remedial Massage – is an umbrella term for many different manual therapy
techniques. It aids in the recovery of injured soft tissues or chronic pain conditions. It
also aims to discover the root cause of pain and injury to further assist in recovery.
Deep Tissue Massage – a firm massage incorporating sustained pressure and
flowing movements to get to the deeper layers of tissues to relieve muscular tension
and can also provide relaxation.
We offer all of these services. Treatments are designed for symptom relief and to
improve movement efficiency. As such, your therapist will use a variety of massage
and manipulation techniques working with the soft tissue structures of the body, to
achieve the desired outcome for each individual.

Can I have a sports massage if I don’t do any sports?2024-02-22T15:37:07+00:00

Absolutely! Even if you do not engage in sports or exercise, your day-to-day movements can place stress and strains on your body, especially if repetitive, which can lead to ongoing issues over time. The human body was not designed for the sedentary lifestyles many of us lead today, spending hours at desk-based jobs or driving, for example. Regular sports massage can help alleviate some of these stresses and strains on your body, reducing the risk of more serious issues arising.

What are the contraindications?2024-02-22T15:35:24+00:00

This is by no means an exhaustive list, but common contraindications include:

Fever or infectious disease
Vascular conditions
Severe heart disease
Cancer
Recent operations and injuries
Diabetes with vascular dysfunction
Blood disorders
Fractures
Open wounds/cuts or abrasions
Contagious skin conditions

Some conditions may be localised to a specific area, so it may be possible to receive treatments in other areas. A full consultation will be completed before your first treatment, and it is your responsibility to alert the therapist to any medical conditions you may have. If you are unsure whether you may have a contraindication to massage, please consult your GP or get in touch with us.

Although many may think it would be beneficial, you should not book a massage during the acute phase of an injury – ideally, you want the initial inflammatory process to take its course before seeking treatment. Depending on the injury, we recommend waiting at least 5 days before booking your appointment. If you are unsure, please contact us.

After the massage what should I do?2024-02-13T17:00:57+00:00

After your massage your body will be in recovery mode. Drink plenty of water and
rest as much as possible. Do not do any strenuous exercise for ideally 24 hours post
treatment to allow the body to settle and to experience the most out of your session.

What should be the frequency of the visits?2024-02-22T15:32:16+00:00

Clients are typically seen for 30 to 60 minutes per session, one to two times per week for acute and chronic conditions, for several weeks, or every 2 to 3 weeks for “maintenance,” depending on the requirement. The effects of manual therapies are cumulative, so the more frequently you receive treatment in the short to middle term, the less you will require treatment in the future. Of course, you can have a manual therapy treatment as often as you wish.

How should I prepare for my session of manual therapy?2024-02-22T15:24:07+00:00

It is beneficial to be hydrated and avoid consuming heavy meals before a massage. Consumption of alcohol or drugs is not advised and is considered a contraindication due to the potential respiratory and cardiovascular impacts they may cause. Refrain from wearing perfume, and postpone the application of body creams until after the treatment to allow our oils to penetrate your skin and enjoy their benefits fully.
