Sports massage can be done during the following phases of training and injury recovery:

  • During the conditioning / training phase
  • Pre competition
  • Inter competition
  • Post competition

Sports massage can be used for the following:

  • Maintenance
  • Injury prevention
  • Injury evaluation and rehabilitation

Sports soft tissue massage is not only beneficial to those undertaking sports it is also important for everyone in prevention and recovery from soft tissue injuries.  I can therefore provide advice and treatment as follows:

  • Assessment and assistance for posture imbalances

Holistic Practice Philosophy

Janice Clarke, Sports Soft Tissue Therapist

Janice is a Soft Tissue Therapist specialised in the treatment of sports injuries. I wanted to bring together my passion and interest in sports to my work as a soft tissue therapist to help individuals and teams progress from being able to perform normal daily physical functions to sporting and highly skilled activities.

Soft Tissue Therapy is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is not only applicable for sports people but for everyone as it helps in prevention and recovery from soft tissue injuries.

“When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything.”
– Lao Tzu

Dry Needling

Dry needling is used to release trigger points which are characterised by pain and present as nodules or tight bands within a muscle. It also assists in healing due to its local soft tissue effects and pain relief which essentially occurs at four levels; local, spinal, brain stem and higher centre.

Medical Acupuncture

Western medical acupuncture is a therapeutic modality involving the insertion of fine needles; it is an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture using current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of evidence based medicine.

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio taping for sport provides support to joints and muscles without restricting range of motion and in addition interacts with the pain receptors, blood and lymph vessels.

Pre-Competition Strapping

Pre-competition strapping is done to provide support to a weakened part of the body, without limiting its function, by preventing movements which stress the weakened area.

Maintenance Sports Massage

Maintenance sports soft tissue massage is beneficial in the prevention and recovery from soft tissue injuries.

"Janice Clarke has treated me many times. I find her approach very professional and knowledgeable. As a triathlete and windsurfer, I have suffered injuries to my legs, shoulders and lower back and these injuries have resulted in pain over the years. Janice has managed to locate the exact areas of the injuries and her treatment has improved my mobility and reduced the pain. I definitely recommend Janice as an excellent Soft Tissue Sport Therapist."

Janice is very professional and provides a beneficial sports massage but she also goes into depth and looks at body movements and prescribes exercises and stretches that will help in both healing of injuries and to better performance in the future. I can recommend Janice to anyone for her sports massage therapy services".
