Back from the Silk Road Mountain Race, mentally refreshed though still feeling the effects of the 800km of hard racing kilometres in my legs, it was great to see so many of my regular clients back in clinic. The increase in endurance sport brings us many clients needing ongoing help in recovery. The toll taken when doing longer training sessions of requires some myofascial or sports massage intervention and over this season a number of endurance swimmers sought our help. As an endurance athlete myself, I understand the mental effort required to finish these events resulting in my hands-on session including some mental preparation too.

Our Moorgate sports massage clinic is always busy with interesting injuries to fix, we get many referrals from our existing clients for both sports and non-sports muscular problems. But that’s not all we do, Peta is a myofascial therapist and it is this training that allows her to fix injuries rather than treat symptoms and the reason you may have read her Google Reviews. Many of us live with ongoing issues thinking this is just how we are built, or inherited it from our parents. Changing these problems is a team effort and we see many clients who are keen to put in some work to fix their ailments. Many instances clients are doing the remedial exercises and foam rolling regularly but the problem remains. It is in these cases Peta often finds a gap in the remedial program preventing the recovery from injury. August saw Peta out of clinic for much of the time as she headed to Kyrgyzstan to do the Silk Road Mountain Race, a beast of an off-road race over 1,700km.

This month she’ll talk about a common runners and cyclists complaint:

While we wait for summer to kick in, many of our sports massage clients are still getting out and staying active, though mostly wrapped up like it is still winter. The running season is in full swing and many of our clients are in for sports massage or myofascial treatments for running ailments. We’ve also seen some our out far-flung clients drop into the Moorgate sports massage clinic to get a treatment from Peta McSharry. Always a joy to welcome back clients who no longer live in London.

Peta does something called “Structural Integration”, she looks at the body as a structural engineer looks at a building and identifies where the stresses and strains of an out of balance body add load resulting in pain and identifies how to remove the affecting load. Tammy who is new to the clinic and passed her level 5 qualification (the highest in the industry) brings a good strong treatment to the clinic. As an endurance cyclist, Peta makes full use of Tammy’s services when the clinic is quiet and is back from riding the length of Wales from Bangor to Cardiff (310Km) on road and gravel over two days with 7,000m of climbing.
