10 ways Soft Tissue Therapy could be your secret weapon on the Snooker table

Have you ever wished that your cue sport skills were better so you could beat a close friend? Or the arrogant person at the pub? Or simply to improve your own game?

Keeping yourself in peak state through Myotherapy or Remedial Massage can help you achieve these goals.

Myotherapy and Remedial Massage Therapy focus on manipulating muscles and fascia (connective tissue) in several different ways. It can lead to decreased pain, increased range of motion, relaxing an over active muscle or even stimulating under active muscles. There are many athletes around the world that seek soft tissue work as part of their sports medicine programs, and there is no reason why amateurs or casual players, shouldn’t do the same. Many professional Snooker players are known to receive regular soft tissue therapy treatments to further enhance their game by limiting injury and improving the smoothness of his joint motions.

The most common complaints whilst playing Snooker or 8-Ball include lower back pain, shoulder soreness, general aches and muscular fatigue. These pains and complaints are due to repetitive strain from the poor postural position that the body is put into whilst playing a shot.

Treatments pre and post event have the ability to dramatically improve your game for many different reasons…

A pre-event treatment will…

  • relax tight and restricted muscles while stimulating muscles for play
  • increase mobility of joints
  • decrease pain in already aggravated muscles and fascia
  • decrease chance of injury
  • improve mental focus.
  • assist with injury management and rehabilitation;
  • reduce muscle soreness and tenderness;
  • allow the body to recover more quickly;
  • facilitate faster removal of lactic acid;
  • assist with facilitating a steady decrease of adrenaline.

Having regular treatments will likely allow you to perform at your peak for longer and more sustained periods of time.

Use Soft Tissue Therapy as your secret weapon on the Snooker table!!

Mehar was fabulous! Not only was she warm, welcoming and funny, but professional and thorough.From the moment I walked in I felt well supported. She was able to identify what was going on, factoring in older ailments, and provide me with a treatment plan and options.Her focus was on sustainable changes and support moving forward, and I had a written plan and clear explanations and clarifications on everything. I never felt like she was encouraging me to need to come back unnecessarily.It took a few visits, and each time was met with the same warmth and professionalism. I got consistent progress and feel so much better now, even though it's a few months on from when I last saw her.It's very clear she is wonderful at what she does, thinks about the whole person and I would definitely recommend her to others considering needing podiatry support.

I've been coming here exclusively since my first consultation. I've had constant shoulder and arm pain from my line of work; the exercises my physio, Carina provided are easy to remember, not time consuming and super effective!Bonus: the space feels super clean and calming - highly recommend coming here

I had a great experience here. The gym was well equipped and the atmosphere of the clinic was amazing. I had Carina, who was very knowledgeable about my injury and helped construct a great solution plan! Her manner was beautiful and she had great energy. Definitely recommend!

I’ve been seeing Talia for a few weeks now for treatment on my shoulder bursitis. From day 1 she was great! She explained everything about my condition to me and what she wanted to do which helped me visualise my own recovery. Could not recommend her enough.
