Who is it for?

  • Sports massage should play an important role in the life of any sports man/woman whether they are injured or want to prevent injuries and keep detox and in tone
  • If you suffer from postural injuries as a result of a repetitive movement at work
  • If you are sat in front of a computer all day or on your feet all day
  • Fantastic for post-surgery periods where you have to remain in bed for a few weeks/months, causing muscle wastage, fascia adhesions and other weaknesses.

Ana's Sports Massage is very thorough and results driven. Other tools to help your injury may be used too, such as cupping which is the most effective form of deep tissue massage that there is available.

CONTRAINDICATIONS OF MASSAGE

This is when IT ISN'T RECOMMENDED to receive massage.
  • Virus, Fever, Infection, Contagious conditions: when massaged, the blood circulation is stimulated which can and will cause the virus, fever or infection to spread throughout the system

  • Cuts (please cover them with a plaster prior to your appointment)
  • Abrasion, sunburn
  • Uncontrolled high/low blood pressure

  • First 3 months of pregnancy as the foetus is not 100% settled in the womb. It can cause miscarriage.
  • Kidney/bladder stones: massage can make the stones travel around the bloodstream and can get stuck in a vessel causing a clot that can turn into an embolism which affects the tissues that won't receive any more blood supply.
  • Risk of thrombus: very similar to an embolism but in this case the blood clot is created at the site of origin.
  • Osteoporosis over 30%: this a progressive bone disease characterized by a decrease in bone mass and density which can lead to an increased risk of fracture. By massaging you are accelerating the deteriorating process.

"I had my first Sports Massage session with Ana about a week ago and I have to say it was the best massage I have ever had (and I've had a lot!). I used to get a lot of headaches due to stiffness in my neck, along with some pain in my shoulder, and I can honestly say I feel a hundred times better ever since my massage. Ana managed to work out a huge knot in my neck and I haven't felt any tension there since she worked her magic! I haven't felt any discomfort in my shoulder either. I thoroughly recommend booking a session with Ana, she really does make you feel well looked after and she's made a world of difference to me." Alison F. on the 29/08/16
