Saint Antonin Sports & Remedial Massage

We have the following treatment options available.  If you are unsure, which treatment will suit you, please don't hesitate to ask at the time of booking.

 

Sports Massage - Our most popular treatment.  It alleviates stress and tension which builds up as a result of physical activity.  Ideal pre and post competition.  Very popular with office workers who suffer from pain in the back, neck and shoulders as a result of poor posture.

 

Deep Tissue Massage -As the name suggests, this is a "deep" treatment.  Massage strokes are slow and penetrative and focus on specific areas of tension.  Ideal for chronic conditions.

 

Myofascial Cupping - As used by Michael Phelps at the Rio Olympics (2016). Formerly based on the meridan systems and used in ancient Eastern style treatments, nowadays cupping specifically targets the musculoskeletal system.  The plastic cups are applied directly to the skin or fascia using suction.  It is this suction which lifts and stretches the tissue, separating fascial restrictions and stimulating blood flow and circulation.  This is turn helps to release tight muscles.  It can be used in combination with sports massage and deep tissue massage.  There is little or no use of cream or oil with this treatment.  The cups may be left on one site for a prolonged period of time or simply moved along the length of the tissue/fascia.

 

Strapping & Taping/Kinesio Taping  - A method of supporting injured muscles.  Can also encourage lymphatic drainage and speed up the healing process post injury.  Useful for many sporting injuries including rotator cuff tears, hamstring, quadricep and calf tears, etc.

 

Holistic/Swedish Massage - a gentle and relaxing massage treatment, ideal for those wanting to de-stress and for relaxation.  Flushes away toxins, aids muscle release and can even aid restful sleep.

 

Sports Massage is key to maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.
