After 18 years in Canary Wharf there is a pretty long list of sporting endeavours! I work with swimmers, karate enthusiasts, kick boxers, cyclists, marathon runners, netball players, pole dancers, ballerinas, weight lifters, golfers, tennis players, gymnasts, rugby players and many others. Not to forget all I have learned from my own personal athletic efforts and injuries over the years).
Not everyone is an elite athlete.. or even an enthusiastic hobbyist. That does not mean that you cannot attend for a sports type of massage here. Maybe you simply have discomfort from a postural habit either daily activity related or imbalances from a previous injury.
We all have numerous imbalances in our bodies that normally pass unnoticed until we begin to challenge ourselves physically beyond normal activities. Even if it is just simply pain and discomfort from prolonged sitting at a desk or a long day in high heels or a stint in the garden or moving furniture!
For those who do have a very dedicated activity and have highly attuned body awareness, a sport massage should be more than just a general rub down. It should for example be able to highlight subtle imbalances that affect balance and power such as weight placement or core musculature issues as well as addressing the more obvious large external muscles. The aim of the treatments will always include helping you improve strength, stamina, fitness and coordination.
Sports massage does not replace physiotherapy or other modalities but the skill and palpation of an experienced therapists hands and whole body approach possible during an hour massage is a very valid contribution to you for enhancing your activity and recovering from injury. Read more,
Pregnancy Massage edit in progress
It is possible to enjoy and benefit from an ante natal massage at any time during your pregnancy. Post natal massage to relax and rejuvenate is also highly beneficial.
The multi dimensional benefits of a massage..
Accepting where you are right now physically, mentally or emotionally is the only place you can start from.
Like orientating yourself on a map. If you don’t know where you are or don’t want to know then how can you plan how to get to where you want to be?! Physically you might have to develop awareness in order to train your muscles better. (Sports massage can definitely help you with this) . Mentally you may need simply to relax and refocus your mind allowing new ideas time and space to formulate. Emotionally you may begin to recognise the links and impact between your body and your emotions by understanding for example how postural habits can influence your mind state and potentially other people's subconscious judgements of you and therefore your interactions with them.
You are always welcome to call or email enquiries prior to making an appointment at The Quiet Space.
