Sports Massage For North Lakes & Penrith People

Sports massage is a deep tissue massage which helps your body to create the conditions needed to return to normal health and mobility after an injury.

Or to restore better functional mobility in patients who have endured a range of musculoskeletal disorders.

Benefits of Remedial Sports Massage For North Lakes Sports People

The Lake District is a mecca for active people, especially in the great outdoors. Inevitably, where adventure or athletic performance meets with immovable objects or swirling waters, injuries occur. People living in the north of Cumbria and the Eden Valley are prone to the same run of household and workplace accidents and injuries that occur anywhere in the country. A thorough, remedial, sports massage is great support to your recovery and the traditional treatments offered by your GP or hospital. A good therapeutic massage offers a range of benefits which include:

  • Injury avoidance when competing or performing at your personal limits.
  • Removing blockages in your circulatory systems, blood and lymph.
  • Breaking down and clearing scar tissue, annoying and painful adhesions and damaged cells that are left behind after injury.
  • Shortens recovery time and aids more thorough healing.
  • Remedy back pain, RSI and other lifestyle or workplace conditions.
  • Relax muscle tension and release stress.
  • Rectify muscle imbalance.
  • Improve joint mobility.
  • Improve postural issues.
  • Improve muscle tone.

As a patient of James Pittam Health & Fitness, you can expect all-round health improvements. These will most likely include better sleep, increased vitality, increased mobility and increased performance levels. It can also be used to treat general muscle soreness from over exertion.

Sports Massage in Penrith

A sports massage approach is often used by athletes, but it is equally effective for non-sports people. Our patients tell us that they have been glad of our intervention. This includes treatments for common, day to day accidents including trips, slips, falls or road traffic accidents. It is very effective at relaxing you mentally and improving the effectiveness of your mainstream treatment.

Many people associate their debilitating conditions with increasing age. Often, they can be traced back to old injuries that were never treated correctly in early life. We have often seen a successful course of remedial massage surprise our older clients. The very welcome return of free movement and strength can be positively life changing.

Sports massage is often successful where other forms of treatment have failed. The results are usually immediate! Certainly within 3 sessions a big improvement will be seen when our skilful practitioners have been working with you. However, most patients feel a difference after 1 session.
