What is Holistic Sports and Remedial Massage?

Holistic sports and remedial massage uniquely brings together two disparate and often opposing styles of massage. A holistic, nurturing, client-centred approach is integrated with advanced sports and remedial bodywork techniques, giving a massage experience which is both enjoyable and effective. This approach seems to satisfy clients who have previously experienced massage which was either disappointingly superficial or unpleasantly painful. In contrast, SB Holistic aims to work deeply, offering relief, while causing minimal discomfort or pain. Your physical and emotional well-being are taken into consideration at all times, when deciding on the most appropriate sports and remedial techniques for you. The therapist listens to your body, simply allowing release to occur without forcing it. When working in this way, muscles do not react against the pressure and therefore the client does not feel the need to resist the massage. Clients who have experienced this form of massage feel that they have been worked with, rather than having had massage “done to” them

You do not need to be sportive in order to benefit from this type of massage, as anyone can injure themselves or experience aches and pains. When applied in a holistic, person-centred way, anyone can benefit. This approach has all of the benefits stated for holistic therapeutic massage, with some additional advantages.

Block Booking Scheme

If your injury, tension or postural pattern has developed over several months or even years, it will equally take time for the issue to be resolved and you will probably need several remedial massage sessions for best results.

Similarly, if you are preparing for or recovering from an important sporting event, such as a marathon or triathlon, regular sports massage treatment sessions are the best way to minimise the likelihood and long-term effects of injury.

Renuka, massage therapist and medical herbalist – Grindleford: Sarah uses a good combination of therapeutic techniques combined with nurturing strokes.
