sports massage students

This weekend was very busy, had a full day at the clinic on Saturday then I was helping to teach on a Sports massage course on the Sunday. Really lovely to see some inspired new therapists eager to learn and full of energy. I can honestly say they were all brilliant and a pleasure to teach. 

Sports and remedial massage is moving at such a pace, techniques are constantly being improved to treat people in a kinder and more effective way. It really is important to work with the body and to re-educate the way it is, rather than telling it where a muscle should be. 

A slower approach works so much better, letting the fascia and the deep muscles release and relax. 

Sports massage is unique in the UK, its a term that Pat Cash invented, in the USA and Europe it all comes under the heading of remedial massage.
