Peter is comfortable working with clients from a variety of backgrounds and believes that Sports massage is not just for sports people, but anyone who uses there body to perform tasks. Any activity can lead to an injury or build-up of tension. Peter regularly treats:
• Amateur and professional sports people
• People with work related issues
• Parents that are sore from the demands of parenthood
• People with chronic pain
Chronic conditions and injuries – Peter always tries to work within your pain threshold and will seek feedback and give advice to help you relax. This can mean some discomfort, but leads to a long lasting relief of symptoms. Peter uses a variety of techniques based around Deep -Tissue Massage, incorporating:
• Trigger Point Therapy
• Myo-fascial Release
• Dry Needling (acupuncture)
• Muscle Energy Techniques
Maintenance and less specific issues – Peter can provide more generalised deep tissue work to help relax and rejuvenate tired overworked muscles, helping to prevent the build-up of chronic tension and aiding recovery from activity and exercise.
Aftercare – Peter can help you to plan how massage can fit into training or practice schedules and how to vary massage around performances and events to get the most out of it. Peter can also give advice about self-massage techniques and exercises you can do at home to help.
