Sports massage is a form of deep tissue massage which is stronger than Therapeutic or Aromatherapy and used to manipulate, rehabilitate and manage the soft tissue throughout the body. It works to lengthen the muscle and tendon fibres thus releasing tension on joints, increasing the joint range of motion, and correcting any imbalances created by lifestyles, sports and occupations.
A Sports Massage session will consist of a wide range of techniques, which will vary depending on the condition presented. Firstly, postural assessment will be used to check the body’s alignment which then dictates the areas and lines that will be treated. The massage techniques which can be used are:
Rehabilitation exercises will be given to improve either the flexibility, conditioning or balance within a muscle or group or group of muscles. Help and advice will be given on timescales for rehabilitation and questions clients have about any other aspect of their treatment.
Bobby also practices CORE Bodywork which was developed by an American therapist, Noah Korrasch. CORE is an acronym of Coax Order, Restore Energy and it works by manipulating areas of connective tissue through the body that are “stuck”. This method is very successful in releasing tension through the low back, hips, ribs, shoulders and neck & jaw, restoring balance through the body’s “hinges”.
Bobby completed a BTEC Diploma in Sports Therapy in 1999 and went on to qualify at the London School of Sports Massage in 2003. These qualifications, together with his membership of the Institute of Sports and Remedial Massage (ISRM), allow him to treat all sportsmen and women, professional or amateur, and people with injuries and conditions caused by occupational and day-to-day life.
A keen sportsman himself, Bobby is able to treat a wide range of muscle and skeletal injuries. Since 2003 he has established successful practices in both Birmingham and Bury (North Manchester) and regularly attends additional courses to update and enhance his skills.
