At Sprint our soft tissue therapists are highly trained in a range of techniques to reduce knots, break down adhesions and release chronic tension, as well as recommending specific stretches to lengthen muscles. They are also trained in sports taping and medical acupuncture.
They work very closely with the physiotherapy team to ensure excellent continuity of care, especially post-surgery when the muscles can become very tight due to restrictions in movement or the build up of scar tissue.
Treat yourself or a loved one, as gift vouchers are also available if you'd like to give someone the gift of massage as a special surprise.
Sports & deep tissue massage
Sports & remedial massage is perfect if you are recovering from an injury, looking to enhance your sporting performance, or as a preventative measure to ensure you feel as loose and relaxed as possible. It can also help if you are suffering from occupational or postural stress.
A combination of manual techniques will be used depending on the nature of your issue to reduce muscle tension and associated pain and improve your range of motion.
Zen Shiatsu is a non-invasive form of Japanese massage that is particularly beneficial in areas such as pain management, stress and insomnia. It uses meridians and acupoints, in a similar way to acupuncture and acupressure, to release blockages, increase the flow of energy and restore a sense of balance in both the body and the mind.
Treatment is carried out on a mat while you are fully dressed with the therapist using their hands, arms and knees to treat you using a combination of firm and subtle pressure, stretches within your comfort zone and gentle rotations.
Sore, aching lower backs, tired legs, puffy ankles and sciatic pain are common complaints for many pregnant women and new mothers. Breast-feeding and carrying the baby can also result in a tight upper back, neck and shoulders.
Pregnancy massage aims to relieve tight muscles and helps to encourage a general sense of relaxation, help to regulate your blood pressure and stress hormones and can even improve the quality of sleep.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Are you suffering from swollen or puffy legs and feet? Do you constantly seem to pick up colds and infections? If so, your lymphatic system could be struggling to function normally. Swelling or oedema is also very common post-surgery and during pregnancy.
Lymphatic drainage massage can help reduce these symptoms and improve general well-being by boosting the immune system. It uses a light, rhythmical touch to clear the lymph nodes, which allows toxins to leave the body more easily thereby reducing swelling and puffiness.
