A sports massage is a manual therapy of muscles designed to help relieve pain and stiffness caused by physically demanding activities.
Sports massage focuses on maximising the benefits of specific massage techniques and supporting further exercise and activities.
The impact of certain activities on specific joints, muscle groups, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue groups are examined.
Karren performs a thorough initial assessment to build a massage therapy plan tailored to the specific needs of each individual athlete.
The benefits of a sports massage are not limited to athletes. To prevent injuries and damage, it is important to pay close attention to the body when starting a new activity or even engaging in a regular one.
Massage can easily be included in both the assessment and care plan.
From helping elite athletes recover from competition injuries to relieving the tension of everyday life in an office environment, Karren has the tools and skills to help.
This massage provides specific therapeutic effects while manipulating superficial and deeper muscles in the body.
Using a range of techniques, remedial massage promotes the body's self-healing process, leading to the repair of soft tissue injuries and the restoration of normal muscle function.
Deep pressure and friction are applied on muscle fibres to release tension, reduce pain, and treat musculoskeletal injuries.
Karen and her team take pride in creating individualised treatment plans that provide the quickest, most effective recovery.
Testimonials from Karrens’ previous clients:
“I have tried plenty of different yoga classes, but this is by far the best I have experienced - I was a bit stuck in the idea that yoga was slow and boring, but Karren makes the class interesting and a REAL workout! I would go every day if I could - I do plenty of sport, have tried the gym etc but never seen the changes in my body that I have from doing Karren's class (and I am only doing it once a week!). I would highly recommend Karren's classes (even if you feel you don't have the fitness or flexibility to do yoga yet - just give a class a go as Karren shows you how to do it at a level that suits you).” - Anita Louise
“Karren has helped me to remove my orthotics in time for summer! Can't wait to wear thongs again, highly recommended!” - Lilly
If you want to relax, pamper yourself, or get a very well rounded massage, Karren and her team can help!
