It is individualised based on your needs, and the pressure of the treatment is entirely guided by you. It is important to note, this treatment is not just for sports people, those who suffer from occupational, emotional and postural stressors can often present in similar ways which can benefit from sports massage.

Body Composition Assessment 

Body Composition uses non-invasive methods to assess the current composition of your body. Outside of having a Dexa scan, the body composition assessment has been proven to be the most accurate, most cost effective, and one of the least invasive.  

Therefore we measure body girths and skin folds as specific locations and put this into a report which we print out for you to take away at each appointment. Therefore you are able to compare this to your previous body composition assessment with ourselves to track your progress from your fitness training, and enable you to understand the effects your training is having on your body. 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture stems from over 3000 years ago in eastern culture; Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that Qi (Pronounced Chee) is the energy flow of the body and passes through the body within meridians, where blockages in your Qi flow cause ailments. Therefore, it is believed within Traditional Chinese Medicine that Acupuncture restores the flow of Qi through the meridian channels, and by extension restores normal function of the body.

From a Western Medical Perspective, Acupuncture has been shown to improve localised tissue blood flow – and therefore tissue healing, enables increases in range of motion, improves quality of soft tissue, improves function, and provides pain relieving effects for many conditions.

Therefore, we are trained in using Western Medical Acupuncture as part of your care plan, and enable you to get back to feeling better, moving better, and being better.
