Sport Therapy Penzance

Essential Therapy provides sport therapy for the Penzance area, and is available at St. Just Community & Business Centre, and at Penzance Leisure Centre on Mondays and Wednesdays. The injury and rehabilitation clinic offers solutions to sport or work-related conditions, including muscular, joint or tendon pain. Treatment aims focus on pain, mobility and/or, postural problems in order to enable clients return to full functionality, regardless of their age, gender, sport or ability. Injury treatments vary according to the sport or activity involved. Clients may include professional and amateur sportspeople, people who keep fit for fun, and accident victims. Assessments are made of the client’s readiness to return to their chosen activity or occupation, deciding whether clients need extra treatments and coordinating referrals to other practitioners.

Essential Therapy treatments for the Penzance area, are offered with or without the addition of Essential Oils. The use of Essential Oils is becoming popular by athletic trainers and sports massage therapists to improve health and performance of their athletes. Essential Oil massage is used both pre-and post workout and competition, to improve performance, and minimize the chance of injury.

Certain chemical components play an important part removing lactic acid, as well as helping to relieve cramping in over-exerted muscles. Generally, the more essential oil in a blend, the more stimulating it will be; whereas lower concentrations of essential oil will be more relaxing.

Sometimes the going gets tough for all athletes; injuries such as sprains, strains and bruises are common in many sports. Many essential oils are powerful healers of skin, muscle and connective tissue. Several well-known oils have strong anti-inflammatory properties, and contain safe varieties of ‘ketones’, which signal the regeneration of tissue. On top of that, there’s the stress-relieving ‘aromatherapy’ aspect, which can further enhance motivation and concentration.
