Sports and Therapeutic Massage
A variety of soft tissue and/or energy techniques are utilised to mobilise and manipulate soft tissue.
This type of massage is specific to a sport and stage of training or to exercise needs and goals.
The ultimate goals of sport massage are
• To prevent injury – muscles are warmed and stimulated to improve flexibility and mobility. Venous flow is improved thereby increasing nutrition to cells.
• To enhance sports performance – a fuller range of motion to joints, ligaments and tendons can enhance and improve performance and stimulate optimal arousal level.
• To assist recovery – due to increased oxygen and blood flow, wastes brought about by exercise can be flushed out of the body. A massage after exercise or a sports event also relaxes to speed recovery.
Therapeutic massage focusses on specific areas of the body to reduce muscular tension and pain and improve flexibility and range of movement. A variety of soft issue techniques and deep tissue pressure technique, that is, trigger point therapy, are utilised.

“Cherllisha has an amazing ability to find the exact place within a muscle that hurts, and coax the pain out to leave your muscles feeling warm and relaxed. She uses lots of towels and cushions to improve your comfort and listens to your feedback. I’ve had everyone I’ve talked to at Bodyworks recommend her”

"Regular Bowen Therapy and massages with BodyWisdom are important in managing my potentially disabling neurological condition. They assist in maintaining my overall physical and mental health. The gentleness of the Bowen Technique has resulted in improvement in balance, walking distances, restoring lost energy and making daily routine decisions. Massage has been helpful for muscle weakness. The skilled and knowledgeable consultations have allowed me to develop sensitivity to my physical and mental needs and to determine my own body work requirements. Cherllisha has taken care to address changes in my condition, to consult with me about my health requirements and the related outcomes.
I continue to be very satisfied with my ongoing treatments by Cherllisha, and the related outcomes. I unreservedly recommend her professional skills and empathetic approach." Helen McGuire
