I am pleased to announce that I am now back at work after having our second baby earlier in May this year! I will be further increasing my hours in the new year also.
Do you have to have an injury in order to get a sports massage?!?
.....NO! If you do have an injury, sports massage is a great tool to help with the recovery process and reduce pain.
However, it is also very useful to have a sports massage when you are injury-free! This helps maintain better-working muscles and limit future muscle tightness from onsetting.
Have you tried a sports massage yet? If not, why?? Sports massage is proven to provide a number of benefits, these include;
>Reduced muscle pain
>Enhanced rate of recovery
>Improved sports performance
If you are interested in booking an appointment to try a sports massage, please call Erin on:

Calling all runners and stretching enthusiasts!!
Here are some basic pointers you must always imply when stretching, in order to promote the best relevant stretch for your goal, and of course to help prevent injury.
• Pre-exercise, hold your stretch for 10 seconds
(this is known as a maintenance stretch).
• Post-exercise, hold for 20 seconds (this is a
developmental stretch - applicable when you are
trying to actually develop the length of the muscle).
• Repeat all stretches 3 times on both the left and
right sides, even if one side seems tighter.
• Stretching should feel good/relieving/nice! NOT
uncomfortable!! Just take your stretch to the first
point that you feel a strain, then hold it there and
relax into it.
• Do not bounce your stretch or force it further than
a 'comfortable strain' feeling.
Many do not realise that stretching a muscle sends a positive message to the muscle fibres to indicate what direction they are to lay. This can therefore really help reduce scar tissue formation and increase flexibility.
Sometimes just stretching alone is not enough to increase flexibility, therefore the extra use of sports massage can be helpful for further amplification.
I hope you find this helpful! And if you have not yet had a sports massage, why not book in!
