Treatment for dancer

Understanding a dancers body and the demands placed upon it is difficult to imagine unless you've experienced it yourself. As a former dancer I am aware of the high standards dancers expect from their own bodies and helping to achieve those standards is my aim.

Dance is physically demanding, whether you’re a professional or dance is your hobby; classes, rehearsals, and performances are physically intensive. Dancers are well known for dancing through an injury, but regular treatments can help prevent the injury before it happens as well as releasing tension in the joints & tendons, improving flexibility and range of motion. Due to busy schedules,

 

dancers are more prone to overuse injuries. These injuries occur when muscles are not rested fully after training, rehearsal or performance. To use your muscles to your maximum ability it is essential to allow them to recover from the previous session. Overuse is the most common cause of muscular imbalances and injury in dance. If these are not noticed early on they can effect performance or worse, can cause further injures.

Many dancers find that a rest period is very difficult to achieve, whilst trying to keep up with rehearsal and performance. Massage can improve circulation which helps to flush out toxins that build up in the muscles aiding a speedy recovery.

 

This is a huge bonus to dancers that are eager to get back into training after injury.
