Over a period of time, these massages can also help to sustain higher levels of performance and remain injury free.

Acupuncture (Dry Needling)

Acupuncture works by inserting small, fine needles into a layer of skin at defined points. This helps to unblock energy flow through meridians. As an athlete trains, their body doesn’t often have the strength to heal any injuries that may have occurred. Acupuncture can help the body to balance, restore and maintain levels of energy and build up any weaknesses. This can result in a quick recovery time as the body is strengthened.
