What is Fascia I hear you ask ?

Just as vital as bone and muscle, fascia permeates nearly every aspect of the human form.

 I had a new client this week who was in his early 70's. During the session, I asked if there was a reason for him booking a massage and he told me he was in training to do a 10k run. I was impressed and asked which race he was considering. He told me in great detail about the Great Manchester Run which is taking place throughout the city in a weeks time on May 22nd.

It takes will-power and determination on these cold, wet, Sunday mornings to get out of a warm bed for a few hours and go to exercise on a muddy bog (often referred to as a pitch!)

Tight muscles are associated with strains and therefore stretching is advisable to maintain muscle strength and prevent injury.

Everyone has different needs and requirements for their Massage and I try, whenever I can, to be flexible and offer clients a tailored booking to suit.
