Alison is an excellent sports and holistic massage therapist practising at MyPTstudio in Croydon. She sorted out my shoulder and back after straining them whilst moving house recently. Hallelujah!

Services

In all types of massage therapy, the intention is to relax the soft tissues, increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the massaged areas, warm them, and help the body to relax.

In a typical massage therapy session, the practitioner will discuss symptoms, medical history and the desired results. The practitioner generally performs some evaluation through touch before beginning the massage. Oil or powder help reduce friction on the skin and the therapist may use other aids, such as ice, heat, fragrances, or machines.

Massage may be found to bring relief from everyday aches, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address feelings of anxiety and tension, and aid general wellness. It can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.

It is important to choose a qualified massage therapist who has undertaken all the necessary training to understand the theory and practice of massage therapy. You can check whether a massage therapist is registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) by searching the register at www.cnhc.org.uk By choosing massage therapists registered with the CNHC you can be confident that they are properly trained, qualified and insured. Alison is CNHC registered.

Sports therapy uses a range of therapeutic techniques for the prevention, recognition and treatment of minor sports injuries. It can also be used to provide support with people wanting to maintain and improve fitness.

A typical session will involve appraising the injury using a number of techniques including posture analysis, gait analysis, biomechanical assessment, as well as soft tissue assessment. The session itself may include soft tissue therapy, mechanical and electrical treatment, cooling or warming therapy and mobilisation.

Sports therapy may be used to address an extensive range of injuries. Sports therapy may also be found to be helpful in the mental preparation of athletes for sporting participation.

This is the ideal massage for companies, events, conferences, concerts and gatherings as no oils are used and you don’t have to remove your clothes!

In the workplace, on-site chair massage helps reduce issues such as neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and stress or migraine headaches. These are all examples of chronic pain patterns associated with sitting for long periods of time at a desk, repetitive muscular actions and poor posture. Not only will the onsite chair massage help with these common issues but Alison will also provide advice on correct posture and stretches.

Just from a short 10 minutes session, and up to a longer 30 minute massage you will feel your muscles relax and have a renewed sense of energy.
