Pampering and pain release: Try Julian Fletcher Sports Therapy for tension relief and wellbeing

BY AMBER HARINGTON - SEPTEMBER 10, 2015

Our modern lifestyles have become fast, pressured and stressful, which often triggers tension in our bodies and muscles as they struggle to cope. However, if, like me, you do not always enjoy intrusive treatment to the resulting injuries, muscle pains, headaches and depression, then you will most likely appreciate the professional work done by Julian Fletcher Sports Therapy.

Situated in Walmer, Port Elizabeth, Julian Fletcher Sports Therapy offers top-class sports massage and rehabilitation treatment as well as performance enhancing massage, trigger-point and muscle activation treatment. Their focus is not on symptoms but on the root cause of your muscular/skeletal problems.

I first visited Julian Fletcher for help with a shoulder injury after a few recommendations from family and colleagues, who have all had excellent results from their treatments.

Impressed by the results, I recently decided to pay them another visit for muscle tension relief. I was surprised at the amount of strain my body had built up from daily routines such as work, cleaning and study.

Like on my previous visit, when I arrived at Julian Fletcher Sports Therapy, I was warmly welcomed by my therapist, Marbi, who promptly took me to the massage room. She enquired about my pain and after giving her a quick rundown, I was left to get ready for my treatment.

A short while later, we began. Marbi started with a relaxing massage on my back before moving onto easing tension in my trigger and neuro lymphatic reflex points. Trigger points are the tight points that form in the muscle - causing pain and discomfort, while neuro-lymphatic reflex points are areas on the body that affect specific muscles and organs.

Muscle movement is also used, allowing a deeper massage without pushing hard and invading the muscle. What I found very interesting, is that sometimes the pain experienced in one area of the body is just a symptom of a problem in another area. This was explained on a chart that I received after the treatment.

Beauty Treatments have recently been introduced at Julian Fletcher and I am looking forward to including a facial with my next appointment.

Again, I left Julian Fletcher Sports Therapy feeling like a heavy burden had been lifted off my shoulders. Whether you are an athlete, a business executive or stay-at-home mom, there is absolutely no reason why you should be living with muscle pain or tension and depression.
