We are a diverse team at the Littlehampton Natural Health Centre, offering a fresh approach to health and well-being through a wide variety of therapies. We understand that one approach isn’t always what's needed and often a multi-disciplinary treatment plan can be more effective at achieving your long-term health aspirations. We aim to help people in the local community manage their pain, increase their mobility and return them to optimal health. We tailor our care to each patient and work alongside other each other and external healthcare providers to give you the best care available.
In addition to our Chiropractic and Massage services, we offer a range of complementary therapies to enable us to offer a comprehensive care service. As the body and mind function together, an issue or imbalance in one area can – left untreated – create further imbalances or outward symptoms. Instead of attending only to localised symptoms, we look to treat every individual holistically, that is as a whole. When approached in this manner, dramatic changes can be realised, creating profound effects on one's life.
Sports Massage Therapy
Sports Massage Therapy is the management, manipulation, and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It is applicable not just to sports people but to anybody wishing to guard against or recover from a soft tissue injury. The techniques used by Sports Massage practitioners have been developed to ensure effective and efficient results are gained from each massage given. Soft Tissue Therapy used by Sports Massage Therapists may:
- Improve circulation and lymphatic flow
- Assist in the removal of metabolic waste
- Sedate or stimulate nerve endings
- Increase or decrease muscle tone
- Increase or decrease muscle length
- Remodel scar tissue when required
- Assist in mental preparation for sporting participation
You do not need to be a sports performer to benefit from Sports Massage Therapy. The benefits above can also help relieve the many day-to-day problems including, but not limited to repetitive strain injury, sprains, tension, and fatigue. Many Sports Massage Therapists work with a great range of clients in assisting with preventive treatment and injury recovery.
By using a qualified and licensed Sports Massage practitioner, you ensure that you will be receiving an individually tailored, high-quality massage. Depending on the type and timing of activity these benefits can be achieved for anyone.
