Sports Therapy

As well as a running coach I am  a qualified Sports Therapist.

I work in Chesterfield at Holywell Healthcare, I am available for home visits in Peak District providing sports massage.

Anyone who engages in physical activity for the purpose of sports or fitness – irrespective of age, level of fitness or level of training – can benefit from Sports Massage.

Whether you’re an elite athlete, take part in sport socially or someone who spends all day at the office or in the car, you will benefit from sports massage.

The techniques we use can release the tension that builds up in the body’s soft tissues due to over-use, after injury or through inactivity; such as sitting in front of a PC all day. Athletes with injuries or problems that are inhibiting performance will find that the stimulatory effects or sports massage encourage the healing process.

How can Sports Massage Help?
Sports massage is specifically designed to assist you in your sport or fitness activities. Sports massage is concerned primarily with:

–  Muscular and skeletal alignment
-  How exercise affects the body’s systems
-  How massage can promote or reduce these effects for your benefit as an athlete

Many of the aims of sports massage, such as injury prevention and the promotion of recovery from exercise, are therefore quite different from the aims of other forms of massage.
