Benefits of Sports Massage, Myofascial Cupping and Medical Acupuncture/Dry Needling
What does sports massage do?

What is myofascial cupping?
Cupping is a soft tissue therapy that supports the bodies healing by creating suction on the skin, pulling up oxygenated blood, tissues and other fluids close to the skins surface.
Cupping can loosen the muscles and encourage blood flow to the area. It is used to relieve muscle pain, stiffness and fatigue.
Cupping does leave circular marks on the skin, which will usually fade between 3 days – 3 weeks (sometimes it can last longer than 3 weeks)
What is medical acupuncture/dry needling?
Medical acupuncture/dry needling is a technique where you insert a very thin, stainless steel needle into a muscle. tendon or ligament. The needles can stay in for as little as a few seconds, up to around 15 minutes (usually).
It targets areas of “knotted” or “hard” muscle to relieve pain or tension. The needles will also help to ease spasms and can improve your range of motion. The needles are used to stimulate a heeling response in the muscle, tendon or ligament.
Who is Sports Massage for?
Sports massage is for everyone! People who may-
- Take part in sport and exercise
- Sit for long periods of time at a desk
- Work in a manual labour job
- Want a stress relief
- Have “Niggles” which need attention before turning into something more serious
- Suffer from injuries or illnesses
- Want to be pain free walking from one end of the house to the other!
Pregnancy is such a tough time for most ladies, with niggles, fatigue and so much more to deal with!
We offer pregnancy massage as a form of relaxation as well as a form of giving you some relief from the tight muscles and swollen ankles.
We offer pregnancy massage to pregnant ladies after they have had their 12 week scan. Unfortunately, we cannot offer treatment if you are having a high risk pregnancy.
Jacqui is trained to treat you safely and effectively whilst pregnant. The treatments will be carried out side laying or seated to protect you and your developing baby.
Please note, although our aim is relaxation and relief, we do our treatments from a busy CrossFit gym, therefore there will likely be music and noise coming through the walls so it is not the spa setting that most pregnancy treatments are carried out in.
Be the best version of yourself!
