Muscle and connective tissue manipulation
Sports Massage Therapy
Sports Massage Therapy consist of manipulating and stretching the muscle and connective tissues, with the objective of enhancing athletic performance. The focus is on specific muscle groups and connective tissues to strengthen weak muscles and correct postural and muscle imbalances.
Benefits of Sports Massage Therapy include:

to build a programme of action
Sports Massage Therapy assists in injury prevention and promotes faster recovery from both training and injury. In combination with a functional training program, Sports massage can help to achieve a balanced, strong and functional body.
Integrative Neuromuscular Therapy
Integrative Neuromuscular Therapy (INMT) is an in depth form of massage which applies specific soft tissue therapy techniques to alleviate the symptoms of acute and chronic pain syndromes. It differs to regular sports massage in that the aim of INMT is to restore structural integrity of the musculoskeletal system by a method of identifying postural distortions and dysfunctional movement patterns. This method allows the therapist to design a treatment protocol that locates and releases spasmodic and hyper-contracted tissues improving flexibility, muscle function and therefore restoring proper biomechanics.
Thanks to its fully holistic approach, INMT leads to lasting results, restoring the structural integrity of the musculoskeletal system for long term health.
