What to expect
I will ASSESS your general posture and capable range of movement throughout your whole body to see where any dysfunction or problem might be originating from.
I will ask you to undress to your underwear to better assess you. You may feel more comfortable in athletic shorts/sports bra. I will ask you to perform some range of movement tests to see flexibility/strength at certain joints and understand any imbalances you may have.
I will EXPLAIN my findings and the proposed massage treatment, including areas that I will focus on and why.
I'll bring everything I need with me for home visits, but we will use your own towels as it is better for hygiene purposes. Please have at least one ready. I am currently still wearing a mask for treatments and I ask that you also wear one for any work around your chest, neck and arms when lying face up.
What is the difference between Sports massage and other types of massage?
I will FOCUS on deep tissue massage and the use of pressure points to try and smooth out any muscle dysfunction or 'knots'.
When receiving this type of massage, you may experience some discomfort but I will always ensure that there is constant feedback about pressure levels.
If you are a sports person, it is a great tool for maintenance of peak condition as well as pre or post event treatment.
