The most important factor for any athlete at any level irrespective of their discipline is to maintain fitness. Ignoring niggles is very risky and can lead to long lay off's, which for any athlete is a massive physiologic and physical setback. Deep Tissue Massage is a fantastic (maybe a little uncomfortable) way to remove deoxygenated blood out of the limbs replacing with fresh blood. The muscles are lengthened and imbalances removed. Coupled with Soft Tissue Release or Muscle Energy Techniques the athlete will feel completely rejuvenated after a full treatment. Don't allow a niggle turn into a six week lay up. I also provide MRIP tool treatments. This is a unique patient tool which is used for deep massage, check out theriptool.com. I also work extensively with individuals who suffer with day to day aches and pains caused by poor posture and fitness.
