& PNF Stretching
I have my own Sports Massage clinic in Bransgore.
This invigorating massage is suitable for
those training for an event, in a sports team, or working out to stay fit.
Having qualified in 2019, I know this is perfect for developing ankle, knee, hip, back, shoulder and elbow flexibility and suppleness.
It can help speed recovery, relieve muscle tension, ease joints, prevent injury and improve flexibility.
From the philosophy that the body is fully systemic and should one joint be out of position, it can ricochet a problem throughout the body. For example, a number of problems in the body are corrected through realigning the feet.
Therefore, most sessions work from toe to neck and last one hour.
I am currently working on my Level 5 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy (ITEC) and aim to be qualified July 2022 which will allow clients to claim back the cost of treatments on certain Health insurance.
The PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) stretching aspect combines passive stretching and isometrics with your muscle alternating stretched passively and contracted.
The technique targets nerve receptors, called the golgi-tendons and the muscle spindles, in the muscles to encourage an extension in the muscle length.
Through stretching the relaxed muscle, then asking for a voluntary contraction back against the restriction I place on the muscle further stretching is achieved; and then massaged afterwards.
This technique of alternating stretching and contracting is repeated several times where necessary, in order to stretch a bit further each time.
