Specialising in Physiotherapy & Sports Massage

What is sports massage?

Sports massage is a type of massage that can benefit anybody taking part in regular exercise or has a repetitive or strenuous job. It works by manipulating the soft tissues, by applying pressure in various different ways. Breaking down muscle knots and scar tissue correcting soft tissue problems and imbalances. It also involves techniques that release trigger points in the muscle and the muscle fascia (myofascial release). Promoting muscle and connective tissue health, muscle length and joint range of movement, it also works on improving posture.

Tape

I often use kinesiology tape (Rock Tape or KT tape) in conjunction with sports massage and find this works really well for lots of my clients.

Kinesiology Taping

What is Kinesiology Taping?

Used extensively in sport it is a type of tape but can be used on most types of sporting or non-sporting injury or ongoing musculoskeletal issues. It is made from a thin stretchy fabric usually cotton or cotton and nylon. It has no medical substance in it but has a hypoallergenic flexible acrylic which is comfortable and non-irritating and is latex free. The adhesive is in a wave like pattern which allows the skin to breath. It will get wet during bathing but quickly dries and will stay on up to 7 days, sometimes longer. You can even swim in it! It moves with the skin meaning you quickly become unaware of it being in place.

How does it work?

It works by the way in which it interacts with the skin, fascia, nerves and circulatory systems. Applied correctly, it lifts the skin creating space between muscle and skin layers. Taking the pressure off inflamed and injured muscles, blood flow and drainage are improved.

It can be effective when used on its own but is most effective when used with other treatments such as sports massage and other physiotherapy treatments. It needs to applied correctly in order to be beneficial. It is therefore, best when applied by a qualified clinician as the taping pattern, positioning and amount of stretch are very important.

The benefits are extensive but include:

  • Quicker recovery from injury and bruising
  • Muscle support
  • Supports injured muscles and joints without restricting range of motion
  • Carry on training during injury rehab
  • Speedier recovery of overused muscles
  • Reduced Swelling and Inflammation
  • Pain Relief
  • Speeds recovery of scars
  • Prevents and/or Relieves Muscle Spasms and Cramping

Reviews

“Had an initial consultation with Rebecca and massage/manipulation of my right side. Seen an improvement straight away. Very thorough and professional. Seeing again to continue the work.”

“I have had 2 sessions with Rebecca now for ongoing quite deep seated back pain. I have already seen an improvement. I know it will be a slow process but what i really like is Rebecca's holistic approach. Makes me feel more confident that I can get to a point where i can live with my back long term rather than a quick fix that doesn't last. Rebecca obviously thinks about each individual person and plans accordingly. Would definitely recommend.”

“I saw Rebecca after injuring my calf muscles. Extremely welcoming and an excellent knowledge of anatomy. She put be at ease immediately and got to the problem straightaway, finding the injury and even locating a previous injury. She was able to complete a thorough sports massage and advised me about further treatment and exercises. I feel confident with her help I should get back to the gym sooner rather than later. I would highly recommend her services and feel I have found a diamond whom I trust completely.”
