Therapeutic & Targeted Massage Services at Body Advance

We offer a totally client centred approach in all of our therapies and treatments. No two massages are the same and we will tailor a massage to your requirements. This will be based on how you are feeling on the day, taking any past or present injuries and conditions into account.

With a solid understanding of anatomy, physiology and pathology we are able to assess accordingly and offer the best massage we can. If on the other hand we are unable to offer treatment, (after all, massage isn't suitable for everyone), we will advise accordingly and suggest onward referral where appropriate.

As part of our service, our clients will receive a full schedule of aftercare, again provided on an individual basis.

Sports Massage

The main aim of this treatment Improve suppleness and flexibility of muscles and joints, improve circulation and relax stressed or tight muscles.

This is a particular effective treatment for both pre and post event participation as we use a number of proven massage techniques to improve muscle tone, stimulated or sedate nerve endings, lengthen shortened muscles and work on adhesions and restrictions. We will work with the client both actively and passively, hence this treatment is more remedial rather then relaxing.

Musculoskeletal testing

We will conduct a full top to bottom Musculoskeletal test as part of an ongoing treatment plan , testing postural muscles that may be causing bodily dysfunction or weakness. The test will last up to one hour and requires active participation from the client. Once completed , this will offer a valuable insight into musculoskeletal health, particularly if you are about to embark on a structured training plan.
