WHAT GEMMA OFFERS
Sports massage is a specialised treatment focused on injury prevention and muscle tissue health. The techniques used improve flexibility and range of movement at the joints, while improving circulation and joint stability.
Sports massage is not limited to sports men and women, but is suitable for anyone experiencing muscular discomfort or reduced mobility. The techniques used manage muscle imbalances and muscle tension brought on by occupation, lifestyle or sports
I’ve treated a variety of people from runners at Southampton Athletics Club to help them achieve their PB’s, to office workers with shoulder and neck tension. I’ve also helped clients with problems concerning lower back pain, patella and knee structure issues, achilles pain, plantar fasciitis, hamstring restriction, hip stability, quadricep shortening, calf restriction and neck tension.
Sports massage can also help relieve symptoms of a range of medical conditions. I have treated clients suffering with Meniere’s disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Migraine. After treatment clients have reported improved mobility and wellness and have noted significant reduction in the frequency and severity of their symptoms.
On your first appointment I will conduct a full body assessment to identify any muscular imbalances. This will include a postural assessment and some special tests on the lower and upper body.
Information gathered from the tests will help me decide on an individual treatment plan.
