 Massage
Massage is an  invaluable tool  tool widely used in the sports world for the  prevention and treatment of sports injuries. It is also a wonderful way to relax and promote a feeling of well being. Massage can help to:

 *Improve fexibility and range of movement*Reduce post sport pain by sedating the nerves, stimulating blood flow and encouraging endorphin release.

 *Promote tissue healing 

*Promote lymphatic drainage, the removal of lactic acid and the other  by-products of metabolism ( the so-called toxins)*Reduce heart rate

You’ve heard those terms before but what are they? Well, they are much more than the latest fitness buzzwords – they are keys to a healthier lifestyle through mindful movement and Pilates.Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor mat or a variety of equipment. It evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates and can dramatically transform the way your body looks, feels and performs. Pilates builds strength without excess bulk, capable of creating a sleek, toned body with slender thighs and a flat abdomen. (Yeah, we know – who doesn’t want that?)It is a safe, sensible exercise system that will help you look and feel your very best. It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. Pilates also improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion. It can also help to  alleviate back pain..
