Sports Massage

The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Based on the various elements of Swedish massage, sports massage is more intense and incorporates a combination of techniques including stretching, compression, friction, toning, and trigger point response techniques similar to acupressure and shiatsu. Sports massage is used to treat specific areas of the musculoskeletal system that are under constant stress whether this be through exercise, occupational, or postural use. This treatment is not just for athletes, it can restore mobility and revitalise the muscles and ligaments of every one of us. Sports massage can be used pre-event to enhance your warm up, post-event as part of your cool down and also during rehabilitation to help break down scar tissue or stretch and lengthen muscles. Most importantly though, a regular maintenance massage will help prevent injuries that cause discomfort and often impede performance.

However, it can also be performed without oil, keeping your upper body fully clothed.

Ideal for those working at VDU terminals and in sedentary jobs where RSI and upper back pain can cause great discomfort and stress. Indian head massage can help alleviate eye and ear problems as well as headaches, migraine, sinusitis, tinnitus, jaw ache and insomnia. By stimulating blood flow to the scalp, indian head massage promotes hair growth and improves hair and scalp conditions.

About Nyree
After a decade of managing pubs and working in entertainment I finally found my vocation in life after experiencing a course of physiotherapy and massage whilst living in Tenerife.
In 2004 I returned to the UK and trained full time at City of Bristol College gaining ITEC diplomas in Holistic (Deep Tissue) Massage, Aromatherapy and Reflexology. At this time I also completed a first and second degree Reiki course with Louise Chalice. Since then I have gone on to complete ITEC qualifications in Sports Massage, Stone Therapy and Indian Head Massage at Devon Academy of Complementary Therapies. I also travelled to Thailand to train in Thai Massage at the Wat Po Traditional Medical School.
I am constantly honing my skills through research and by attending various advanced massage technique courses, this ensures that my knowledge is kept up to date and that I meet the CPD (Continued Professional Development) requirements set by the FHT (Federation of Holistic Therapists) of which I am a member. I have just completed an 8 day course (2018) in Hands Free Massage at Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork. When it comes to the human body, you can never stop learning!
In 2011 I joined the Birdwell Clinic team full time to work alongside our excellent physiotherapists, osteopath and councellors.
Although the majority of my work in the Birdwell Clinic is deep tissue/sports based, the wide repertoire of treatments I offer means I can integrate other practices to tailor a session completely unique to your needs.
