SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPIST

MARY BROOKING (Dip SMRT)

“Sports massage is for both sports people and anyone wishing to prevent or recover from a soft tissue injury. I work hard to understand my clients’ goals and expectations and deliver a very individual & focussed treatment.”

Mary is a keen runner, swimmer and triathlete and has experienced first hand many of the benefits sports massage can bring to endurance athletes: improved recovery from activity and injury, injury prevention, pain reduction and greater mobility/range of motion. Her belief in the power of sports massage led her to train as a therapist with the North London School of Sports Massage. 

Mary has treated a wide variety of clients including athletes for whom regular sports massage forms part of their training plan and individuals with soft tissue issues arising from sport, posture, work/desk setup, surgery and accidents. She uses a range of soft tissue therapy techniques and communicates clearly how, and to what extent, soft tissue therapy could form part of achieving her clients’ goals and delivers very client focussed treatments, including an assessment of soft tissue condition.

Mary has a Professional Diploma in Sports Massage and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy and is a member of the SMA (The Association for Soft Tissue Therapists).

Massage techniques, or the art of therapeutic touch, has been used by mankind for thousands of years.

Specifically, Sports Massage can be an excellent way of helping alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Overexertion and/or overuse injuries can lead to tissue changes which massage can help to treat by restoring good blood flow and stimulating connective tissue repair.

Sports Massage is also great for prevention of those aches and niggles  that can get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger. And, it is not just for the sports person: anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and those in sedentary occupations (emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries).

Sports Massage tends to be deeper and more intense, incorporating a combination of other techniques: Stretching, compression, friction, toning, and trigger point response are also employed as part of the approach.

It is also available for people from all walks of life. People who participate in sports to people who have demanding jobs to people who cannot so easily participate in exercise or sports. With regular sports massage treatment,  one will be more able to sustain their own unique level of performance.  The overall aim of treatment is to enhance performance at whatever level a person has reached.
