What do I need to wear? For a postural assessment you will need to wear (ladies) a sports bra or crop top and loose/baggy low cut shorts, which are short in length. The men can wear baggy short low cut shorts with a T-shirt.
You will need to take your top off (ladies please keep you bra on) and be barefooted. This will enable us to view the alignment of your shoulders, spine, pelvis and knees. Once your postural assessment has been carried out you’ll be able to get partially dressed again.
After your first session and depending on the part of the body you have treatment on, you’ll need to wear loose shorts and a normal bra – as it may need to be unclipped during treatment – depending on the treatment.
Is it painful?
Treatment can sometimes be uncomfortable and in cases it can be painful, however this will be depend on what treatment you are having? There is also the possibility you may bruise after treatment.
Is it good to have a massage before or after a race/match? It is ideal to have an invigorating massage before a race to warm up the muscles and joints – this is not done very deeply as it’s merely just to get the muscles ready. There are often massage therapists on hand at events for before and after the race so ideally after the race grab yourself a quick 15 minutes session to get the waste moving!!! A couple days after an event is a good idea to have a deeper massage as this aids recovery.
How often should I have a massage? Massage is used to treat injuries as well as aid recovery and to improve circulation in the body and get rid of toxic waste that’s been accumulated during a hard workout or race. It is an individual preference as to how many sessions one should have. We have found from experience that those “more experienced” athletes have come to realise that regular massages helps prevent injuries and therefore they may have a massage once a week or every other week. For injury treatment – everybody is different and we all respond differently so this will be assessed during your sessions.
