A regularly scheduled maintenance massage or osteo-sports session allows us to keep a check on how your muscles, joint restrictions and soft tissues are doing, address any budding imbalances before they cause a problem affecting your enjoyment in training, exercise, hobbies or work. Your maintenance session gives us the opportunity to remind you of self-maintenance exercises, stretches, postural adjustments and lifestyle advice given to you in previous sessions.
In this session we will do a full body screen, check-in on any historic problems, work on any new niggle, discomfort, slight strain or any imbalances and address any new health concern since the last session.
