CHARLOTTE MUIR

Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist

I am Charlotte Muir, Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist at Glasgow Fitness and have been based here for nearly 3 years. As well as treating gym members and external bookings, I also work with Fighters within the gym in the latter stages of fight camp doing pre-fight Massage to ensure muscles are loosened and prepped for the fight.

In my spare time I work with a Professional Rugby Team and I recently worked as a Sports Massage Practioner, for the Boxing Event at this year’s Commonwealth Games.

SWEDISH MASSAGE

Traditionally the basis for most Massage treatments, it is a fairly relaxing treatment meant to sooth and relieve tired, heavy muscles. It differs from Sports & Remedial Massage in terms of the depth of pressure applied being lighter and so is very good for Stress Relief, Relaxation and Aiding Sleep.

SPORTS & REMEDIAL MASSAGE

Similar to Swedish Massage but working deeper into the muscles and tissue to better stretch and invigorate tissue aiding better blood flow to and toxin removal from the affected area. This enables faster preparation and recovery in Sport and enables more efficient healing from injury or muscle stress or fatigue (sport related or not). Essential in all Sports/Gym training or where chronic pain is present even from everyday life (Deep Muscle Pain, Niggles or Joint Pain.

 

Additional techniques may be used alone or along with Massage in a Sports/Remedial Treatment if necessary and with consent of the client.

DRY NEEDLING (MEDICAL ACUPUNCTURE)

A number of small Acupuncture needles are placed in the area of pain and effectively “block” the signal being sent from the brain telling the muscle/tissue to be tight. This causes the muscle or tissue to relax either completely or enough that Massage on the area is then able to work effectively.

The Needles are appropriate in length to the area being worked on and used only to a depth to have effect and no further. This means this technique is not painful at all for the majority of clients but is very efficient at achieving the results wanted.

KINESIOTAPING

A method of taping using a uniquely designed elastic tape to enhance the function of many different tissues and physiological systems of the body. It carries continued therapeutic effects for extended periods of time between treatments.

This method of treating injuries is gaining wider and wider popularity within professional and amateur Sport with many Tennis Players, Rugby Players and Footballers competing wearing Kinesiotape in many of the colours it is available in.
