ports massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is commonly also referred to as soft tissue therapy and is beneficial for people wanting to recover from a soft tissue injury or guard against one. One session can make a huge difference in the prevention of injury and the recovery from injury, here is more detailed information of how!
Sports massage helps identify and loosen areas of tightness helping to stop them developing into injuries. It can improve the recovery from injury by helping to relieve muscle tension, reduce soreness and stress and is an area where regularity may help. The more often you go to a sports massage therapist the more impact they can have through learning your body and knowing where to focus. It may also improve joint flexibility and mobility and reduce the risk of injury during exercise. For example a study in the journal of Strength and Conditioning Research in 2010 found improved hip-flexor range of motion even from a 30 second massage. Imagine what an hours massage could do to help you!

Covid precautions: keeping you safe!

Covid precautions: keeping you safe!Our therapists have attended a Covid Safety course specific to the Massage industry, giving them clearer understanding of how to keep you safe.

Prior to entering your building we will use antibacterial hand gel and be in a clean set of clothes. We will wear masks as soon as we enter your accommodation and will require masks to be worn by the person receiving the massage for the duration of the massage and anyone in the vicinity of the therapist. We will use disinfectant that kills the Covid 19 virus on the massage table and surrounding surfaces between customers.

For your safety we also use fresh towels and change uniform and mask between venues. We ask the customers to prepare an area for the massage that is free from soft furnishings where possible, such as cushions, throws, pillows, clothes. These can easily be placed under bed clothes or in a wardrobe to reduce the possibility of contamination.

Our therapists will complete a Covid screening questionnaire daily and will stop work immediately to be tested should they display any Covid symptoms. We hope that these precautions will reassure you.

OK, thank youTalk to the team
