Preventing injury by showing up early signs of problem areas

I went to see Maria primarily for treatment on my calves as I suffer from intermittent Achilles Tendonitis. She has provided the most comprehensive massages I have ever had including extensive stretching and advice on rehab exercises.
I find this not only physically beneficial, but also mentally relaxing. I have had no problems with the Achilles on the last two road races I have completed, including the Brighton Marathon where Maria showed me how to kinesiotape my Achilles. Maria has a pleasant and friendly manner and I have recommended her to friends with sports injuries.

Don’t Wait To Be Injured

Although sports massage is used to relieve symptoms during acute, post-acute and chronic injury stages and may speed up recovery and help with rehabilitation, don’t wait until you’re injured before you get one.

This type of treatment should be part of any active or sporty person’s training or fitness program.

At the end of the treatment, appropriate rehabilitation exercises will be suggested if needed to aid your recovery further and improve your sports performance.

If you’re a first time marathoner in need of motivation please read this blog I wrote in February 2015 for ideas on how to keep going.

Event Massage

I regularly work at races and events, giving pre- and post event sports massage treatments to aid performance and recovery. If you are taking part in an event or race make sure you get pre and post event massage when it’s available. I can’t recommend it enough and that’s from personal experience.
