Sports massage treatments

After 15 years of sports massage and myofascial treatments, that's close to 20,000 hours of hands on time with Peta's clients, she gets to work on some very interesting cases. Many clients, especially those who are referred to Peta come because they are looking for a solution to a problem they have and are unable to find a permanent fix for the pain or niggles. Our aliments linger for a number of reasons and finding those reasons is key to how Peta treats and the success of getting people out of pain, playing sports better or recovering from major injury or surgery. Whilst we advertise as a sports massage therapists and possibly your here because you searched for sports massage, what we do is beyond sports massage. We'd like to give you an insight into the injuries Peta and her team treat and a little summary of some of the months we have in clinic. If you are suffering a long term issue previous seen by a physio or doctor but find the pain or the problem remains, please get in touch with Peta - or take a look at the reviews on Google.

Our sports massage clinic experiences seasonal changes throughout the year, marathon season tends to be March / April and October / November. New York marathon is the big draw card in the autumn but many others are popping up and with more clients running half marathons, it's a busy time for runners. We've seen an increase in clients coming from Bank for sports massage, due to changes in services in their area. It's a short walk from Bank station to our clinic, so we welcome the new opportunities. I'll start introducing some of the work I do with myofascial release or myofascial therapy, if you've read the reviews about Peta on Google, you'll know she has a reputation for fixing problems, this comes from her 15 years experience as a myofascial therapist.

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. Instead of a monthly clinic summary, Peta will talk about instances where clients were doing remedial exercises and foam rolling but not seeing any results. This month she’ll talk about a common runners and cyclists complaint:

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.

This month sees us help a variety of people, mostly from our local area: Moorgate, Bank, Old Steet, Spiltalfields, London Bridge, Farringdon, St Pauls and Cannon Street. But we have also had clients from Camden, Brazil, France and Switzerland in the clinic this month. Some have come via recommendations to see Peta McSharry and others have been looking for a resolution to a problem they’ve not been able to resolve elsewhere. Read about some of the interesting cases we've worked on this month.

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.
