Sports massage can help to reduce pain, improve mobility, and promote relaxation.
Use cases of sports massage include pre-event massage, post-event massage, muscle energy techniques, myofascial release, trigger point therapy and neuromuscular technique.
These are used to reduce pain and improve flexibility, balance and overall performance. Additionally, using specific hand strokes can help to increase circulation and oxygen flow in the muscles to aid in recovery.
Lastly, ice and heat therapies can be used to reduce inflammation, pain and stiffness.
All of these principles can be used to help athletes reach their peak performance.
Sports massage can be beneficial for desk workers by helping to reduce tension and stress in the neck, shoulders, and upper back. The massage techniques used can help to increase circulation which can bring oxygenated blood to tight muscles, thus reducing pain.
Sports massage can also help improve posture by loosening tight muscles that have been strained from sitting at a desk for long periods of time. The massage techniques used can also help to reduce mental fatigue and stress by releasing endorphins that promote relaxation.
All of these benefits can ultimately lead to improved productivity and wellbeing among desk workers.

Osteopathy is often covered by private health insurance, but in some cases it is an additional element of the policy or you may need to get a referral from your GP or approval in advance. It is best to contact your insurer and ask about the details and process for your particular policy. We can invoice direct to the insurer if appropriate.
