WHAT IS SPORTS MASSAGE
We utilize a range of remedial massage techniques tailored to treat your specific requirements. Whether you suffer from long-term, chronic pain, have posture-related muscle tightness or simply need to relax and unwind, we have a treatment that will be right for you. Massage assists the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It relaxes and tones the muscles preventing injuries. Posture is one of the main reasons for pain and injury, our treatments address posture and the injury itself which helps prevent further concerns.
Remedial sports massage can be helpful in treating specific areas of muscle tension caused by stress or injury. The therapy also helps to get the blood flowing to injured tissues to speed up the repair process.
It can be used for relaxation and general wellbeing. The therapy has both short and long-term effects on the body.
Muscle tissue works by contracting and so if it is shortened it can no longer work effectively. A muscle may be shortened actively or passively, for example muscles that contract due to overuse or repetitive motion are shorted actively and those that shorten due to poor posture happen passively.
When the muscle is contracted in these ways it cannot contract any further and so is not able to do it’s job properly and can overload other muscles in other parts of the body causing pain and dysfunction. Massage Can Help!
At KO we believe in order for a treatment to be effective, we need to treat the whole person. Everything in the body is connected and related, therefore the whole body reacts when parts of it are affected.
Above all – Massage feels great !!
