My name is Jean-Pierre Guillonnet and I am an ITEC level 5 Sports Massage Therapist and I have been massaging for over 10 years.
What is Sports Massage?
It is not just for sports people!
We all, from time to time, get niggles in our bodies. Sometimes as a result of overtraining, not warming up or not warming down, making a movement that stretches a muscle a little further than it wants to by doing everyday or repetitive movements. Some of us have chronic long standing injuries and some more recently acquired injuries which can be acute or sub-acute, which can be treated according to the severity and the pain that occurs as a result.
My client base consists of people from a wide range of ages and professions and sporting backgrounds. Some spend too much time on computers, commuting long distances and some get injured as a result of their sport.
How do I do this?
I apply massage techniques and stretches, not only to the area of concern, but also to related areas which may be the cause of the pain or injury.
