Massage: Sport and Remedial

Hello all who are interested in massage,

I trained at The London School of Sports Massage, graduating in 2005 and I am working as a Sport and Remedial Massage Therapist here in Zürich.

Remedial Massage is about remedying soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) problems. Muscular tension, back or neck pain/stiffness, releasing tight muscles, helping with the breakdown of scar tissue after chronic injury.
Deep tissue massage together with remedial exercises and facilitated stretching techniques will help rebalance your muscles and increase your feeling of wellbeing.

Sports Massage is about enhancing performance, maintaining optimum working condition in the muscles and importantly about injury prevention. Pre and post event, sports massage is invaluable during both preparation and recovery phases of your sport, work out or physical activity.

I have worked closely with dancers and athletes, from amateur to world class levels, I'm currently working with the LCZ (Leichtathletik Club Zürich) at the Letzigrund, as well as people from many other sport and hobby activities and of course also people who incur muscular tension and problems from sedentary work .

It's a great form of massage for releasing and recovering from any kind of muscular tension and stress.

For appointments and further information please see my website: sportsmassage.ch

Call me directly on (0041) 076 544 2332.
Or send me a message via the forum.

Re: Massage: Sport and Remedial

Well that long spell of unbroken sunshine seems to have finally come to an end (hopefully to be back again very soon...for the whole summer:-))).
If any of you have been making the most of the weather by over doing the activities or if you would simply like to cheer yourselves up ...I just wanted to do a quick reminder post-it for my massage ad!
Have a good one! emmag

Re: Massage: Sport and Remedial

After many years of cronic muscle pains, joint pains, back pains, I finally ended up with a Sports Massage Physiotherapist. What a difference! It actually works! I can highly recommend it.

Good evening jacek, It sounds as if your elbow is not getting much rest which is a crucial part of it's healing. How long has it been hurting for? And have you iced it?
Try to avoid any movements that trigger pain - at work and on the court. And check that you have the right size racket grip.
Once past the acute inflammatory phase some massage could help.

Good luck, Emmag

Thank you for your vote of confidence.

The course I did in London was excellent and I do find it a very rewarding profession!

I had a massage a couple of years ago in Baden Baden. It was a little painful. He really worked my shoulders. The next day I felt great, unless I brought my shoulders up to high, which is a tension position for me. THis kept my shoulders down in a relaxed position, because if I didn't it hurt. I want this again. What kind of massage would that be?

Re: Massage: Sport and Remedial

Hello Topo,
It sounds like it was deep tissue massage or sports massage that you had.
My massage also can hurt, even a bit after the treatment if the muscles have been in very bad condition, (but it's a good hurt) because the muscle fibres get re-aligned to the right working structure with the massage which enables the muscle to work then to it's maximum capacity, or at least a better capability.
Feel free to give me a call for mor info or an appointment any time.
Cheers, Emma

Re: Massage: Sport and Remedial

Whatever the condition, Emma's a lovely person and will make you feel 100% better by just spending some time in her company.

A shameless plug, I know, but she's worth it...

I would like to second that. Just had my 4th massage with Emma yesterday and it was excellent every time. I feel totally reborn today.

Not only does she give a great massage, but her lovely persona adds to the whole experience. Uncle Max's quote is definitely not an exaggeration.

So if you need a great massage PM emmag

Re: Massage: Sport and Remedial

I will be needing a massage therapist when I am in Basel for 5 weeks mid-July thru August. Would like to discuss with you my issues to see if you can help. I have been most helped by "trigger point" therapy - but the pressure has to start very lightly or my muscles will rebound and tighten up again, or not release at all, if worked on too forcefully or pressure is put on them too fast. I have a weird myofascial disorder, possibly autoimmune in nature - My muscles don't respond like a normal persons. J

Re: Massage: Sport and Remedial

With over a decade in ultra endurance sports, I've had scores of massages and massage therapists across several countries treat my various over-use injuries and help with recovery. I've had some great sports massage therapists and some that just clicked through a 50-minute routine that was relaxing but didn't do much for my injury or recovery. emmag is one of the great ones - by far. Her deep tissue sports massage skills are tops and easily won me over from Instinct Massage (which was close to work and not bad, but not as targeted and certainly not as sports-skilled or strong as Emma). She gets high marks from me for helping me recover after a painful knee injury and general body trashing from Marathon des Sables this year.

Re: Massage: Sport and Remedial

Good to know, I look forward to meeting Emma. Good luck with the
marathons. Wish I could run again. Last one I did was 1993 - another lifetime ago. Keep it up, Janice

Hi to everyone on the forum,
Just a quick reminder about the Sport and Remedial Massage that I offer here in Zurich.

If you have any aches and pains or a stiff neck, are preparing for a sporting event or the up and coming ski season, or have some muscular tension through the stress of your job or life in general then maybe a good deep tissue massage would be just the ticket?

At the moment I'm based in Wiedikon. Details for contacting me are in the quote above.

Have a great day! Emmag
