Sports and Remedial Therapy:

Remedial massage therapy, simply means using manual therapy techniques to try to “remedy” a problem. But to offer a remedy, there needs to be an understanding of how the problem arose, how to avoid in the future and relieve the pain. To achieve this, massage and advanced soft tissue techniques are used, which are set within a framework of assessment and rehabilitation procedures.

Sports massage is included as a specialist area within Remedial massage therapy which applies all the same techniques and principles in a way that best meet the specific needs of the athlete.

The Inter x5000:

The InterX 5000 is the first product from NRG to use a new generation of stimulation technology called Interactive Neurostimulation. The InterX 5000 was first produced in 2004 and has been effective in managing pain associated with soft tissue dysfunction and proven appropriate for the treatment of both acute and chronic conditions. The InterX 5000 is applicable in a wide variety of clinical situations from acute injury to post-operative recovery and the treatment of chronic pain. InterX 5000 has also played a powerful role in sports injury management and rehabilitation. The hand-held, battery operated device has been used to treat injuries on the field and on the sidelines, in the tour bus and in clinics and training rooms.
