Massage and Soft Tissue Release!
You might have noticed during the Olympics, and you might notice over the next few weeks during the Paralympics, that some of the athletes have weird round circle shape marks on their skin. I asked Abi from Abi Cosh Sports Therapy and Massage what these were all about and she sent me this! So for those of you who are interested, here's a bit of info about cupping! Soft Tissue Release uses precise pressure combined with active or passive stretching, where we press onto a muscle to create a ‘lock’ or use the cups to create that negative pressure tension. 🟣This effectively shortens the usable length of muscle. Then the therapist will stretch the muscle, or instruct you to move to actively stretch the muscle. 🟣Often STR will be used along the whole length of a muscle, although sometimes it will only be applied to very specific locations. 🟣STR can be a little uncomfortable and isn’t suitable for sites of recent injury, but we can choose to work around an injury rather than directly on it. 🟣However, STR can have rapid positive effects on flexibility and pain 🟣 Cupping is safe and user-friendly for anyone and everyone! If you have any other questions about massage or treatments let me know and I can get Abi to write something else for us!

See you all next week,
