I have been practicing Sports Massage for 12 years and in that time I have trained in Thai massage. I have found that Sports & Thai massage work amazingly together to aid in both rehabilitation and injury prevention. The deep tissue of sports massage along with the stretching and mobilization of Thai massage working in unison to enable you to get the best out of your body.
With my gym undergoing a major referb currently, I am left using what is available to me and re-thinking my training programme. At the start I was a little thrown by this, but it has proved to be a good thing. I have had to shake things up and do different weight and body weight training than normal. I hurt more than i have in a little while. This is good.

If you are are like me, you will be avoiding the races at all costs this week. Its cold, windy and very busy. God that makes me sound old!!!!!
Due to having a quite week at work, as everyone else seems to be inbracing the festival, i am using the time to train.
Weights, power lifting, painful hamstrings, grion strain avoidance and stretching.
Feeling the burn today after yesterday's chest and arm session. I was naughty and did not stretch afterwards :( feeling the pain from that error...!!!!
After a week off training, I am looking forward to getting back into the gym today. However, I may not have been in the gym but i have been training of a different kind. Having fun on the beach with the boys is cardio training for the body, mind and heart.
Playing and seeing my boys happily playing in the sunshine on the sane and in the sea makes my heart happy.
Yes that's right, I had a Sports Massage today and yes you will be pleased it hear. IT HURT :) But i feel SOOOO much better. I have upped my weight training over the past few months and have been feeling the strain. I now feel that i can get back in the gym and lift better than yesterday. I am physical proof that getting a sports massage can help you even if you are not injured.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE AN INJURY TO HAVE A SPORTS MASSAGE - PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE
If Weight training is your thing, then Thai Massage need to be your thing too. You train your muscles hard, therefore you need to stretch them out really well too, and I know that that can sometimes prove hard. Whether it be time or just difficult to get that stretch right or intense enough by yourself. A Thai Massage is just the thing you need. It is powerful, energising and the stretches get your muscles back to where they need to be. Leaving you to be able to train better and harder than before. A Thai massage should not be a luxury, but an essential part of your weight training programme.
I have been seeing Chloe for the past 6 months on a monthly basis. I train hard 5 times a week and had been suffering from cronic shoulder pain. I had been training through it, but on a recommendation from a fellow weight lifter i made an appointment to see Chloe. After 1 session i felt so much better, and was completely pain free for 2 weeks. I knew the pain would come back, but was so relived that i booked another session. I now come once a month and am pain free, training harder and loving the stretching sessions I get with a Thai Massage. Thank you Chloe
Having a regular massage when weight lifting can prove a massive benefit. You put your body under enormous pressure on a daily basis to get the results you are after.
