It is important to keep the body in the best condition while training for summer events. The Althos Clinic offer a multi-disciplinary approach; they have dedicated and highly qualified practitioners offering you a range of therapies including:-
OSTEOPATHY uses soft tissue release, articulation and manipulation of joints in order to increase range of motion, nutrition and drainage to the area. This will increase the mobility and reactivity of the body, reducing the risk of injury during training for an event. An osteopath can also teach stretching and rehabilitation techniques following injuries or in general preparation.
ACUPUNCTURE can be used to boost energy levels, circulation and the immune system. It’s a gentle way to lower stress levels, ease muscle tension and strengthen joints. As a holistic treatment it is tailored for each person. Acupuncture can also help with conditions like hay fever which can be exacerbated while training for a race or during the event itself.
SPORTS THERAPY helps treat and prevent injury, using deep tissue massage which can help release muscular congestion and pain, improve circulation and enhance the functional quality of muscle tissue.
SWEDISH MASSAGE is a full body treatment designed to reduce muscle tension, improving overall well-being.
AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE uses essential oils which are chosen to suit your individual needs and together with the potent properties of each oil, combine to provide a wonderfully relaxing, calming and healing experience.
