SPORTS MASSAGE Banish muscle tightness and strain

Sports massage therapy treats a wide range of musculo–skeletal problems – from tendonitis and frozen shoulder to sciatica and groin strain – as well as preventing the onset of injury.

It is by no means restricted to sports players and may be effectively applied to domestic and industrial injuries as well.

Sports massage therapy can significantly help a wide range of conditions including:

  • Tendonitis
  • Muscular spasm
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Tennis/golfer’s elbow
  • Groin strain
  • Shin splints
  • Work strain
  • Torn/ruptured ligaments
  • Repetitive strain
  • Sciatica
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Back pain
  • Runner’s knee
  • Postural problem

Charles Street Clinic has two sports massage therapists: Kim Weir FSMT (Assoc), LCSP (Assoc) and Angela Short MISRM, MFHT

Kim has worked extensively in the health and fitness industry – as a sports massage therapist and first aider in professional rugby.

Angela has over 18 years experience in the massage industry and attained Level 5 in Clinical Sports and Remedial Massage in 2011.

“Whether you are a performance-based athlete, part-time fitness enthusiast or just someone who feels stress physically from work or lifestyle factors, the soft tissue techniques involved in sport massage therapy offer an opportunity to relieve, rehabilitate and recover.”

“Each sports massage treatment varies from person to person,” says Kim, “but generally involves applying the hands to improve blood and lymph flow and to stretch muscles in order to increase their flexibility and improve elasticity.”

“Treatments can include many different techniques, depending on the needs of the client,” says Angela. “Typically we use a combination of soft tissue release, neuromuscular release, myofasical release, muscle energy techniques, mobilisation and myofasical kinesiology taping.”

DISCOVER how Acupuncture can improve your wellbeing

Chinese Medicine has been used for over 2000 years and uses acupuncture, herbal treatment and dietary advice to treat patients of any age or constitution with either acute or chronic conditions. In China it is the main form of healthcare and is fully integrated with Western Medicine.

Acupuncture stimulates the body’s own healing response by encouraging the flow of blood and energy to help restore its natural balance. Treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to affect the flow of your body’s qi, or vital energy. The focus is on you as an individual, not your illness, and all symptoms are seen in relation to each other.

COUNSELLING

All of us experience difficulties and challenges in our lives which are not always easy to address on our own. So the opportunity to talk freely and be heard in a safe and confidential environment can really help explore and reconcile the issues we’re facing.

The counselling service at the Charles Street Clinic provides just this opportunity and will help you look at problems in a different way with someone who will encourage you to express yourself – and respect what you have to say. You can reflect on your reaction to life’s challenges, identify coping strategies and gain more control of your life.

Counselling is appropriate for a wide range of relationship and personal problems including:

  • Relationship issues
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger management
  • Low self esteem
  • Bereavement
  • Divorce
  • Life changes
  • Social phobia
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Panic attacks
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Abuse (mental, physical, sexual)
  • Eating disorders
