Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a method of stretching muscles to maximise their flexibility.   Performed with a therapist and involves a series of contractions and relaxations with enforced stretching during the relaxation phase

Understanding Injuries

Your therapist has had an active lifestyle through work and sport.  As a result he has experienced a range of injuries (breaks, dislocations, sprains, strains, tendonitis, tears and pulls).  Therefore, he understands how important it is to look after your body to avoid injuries

You know you're worth it!

Relaxation Massage

When we are stressed, our muscles become tense.  This tension restricts the flow of oxygen and nutrients into the muscle fibres and prevents adequate disposal of waste products - and you become sluggish, tired and achy.

Massage is relaxing and comforting, with all the additional therapeutic effects to help us overcome our pain and fatigue:

  • Increased circulation
  • Increased lymphatic drainage
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Reduces musculo-skeletal aches and pains by relieving tension and knots in the muscles
  • Relief of headaches and eyestrain

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics.  It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.  Sports massage has three basic forms: pre-event massage, post-event massage and maintenance massage.

Pre-event sports massage is carried out to help prevent serious athletic injury.  It helps to warm up the muscles, stretching them and making them flexible for optimal athletic performance.  A pre-event massage stimulates the flow of blood and nutrients to the muscles, reduces muscle tension, loosens the muscles, and produces a feeling of psychological readiness.


Post-event sports massage - whenever athletes exercise heavily, their muscles suffer microtraumas.  Small amounts of swelling occur in the muscle because of tiny tears.  Post-event sports massage helps reduce the swelling caused by microtraumas; loosens tired, stiff muscles; helps maintain flexibility; promotes blood flow to the muscle to remove lactic acid and waste build-up; and reduces cramping.  In addition, post-event massage helps speed the athlete's recovery time and alleviates pulls, strains, and soreness.


Maintenance sports massage is carried out at least once a week as a regular part of athletic training programmes, (professional athletes may have a daily maintenance massage).  Maintenance massage increases the flow of blood and nutrients to the muscles.  It also keeps the tissues loose so that different layers of muscle slide easily over each other.  Maintenance sports massage also helps reduce the development of scar tissue while increasing flexibility and range of motion.

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) Massage and Stretching

  Are you one of the many amateur athletes guilty of 'not stretching enough'.  Do you come to the end of your run or activity, get showered and changed and wonder why you're stiff the following day?  Well with PNF the stretching is done for you!  The muscles are warmed up with a massage and then PNF is carried out.

PNF stretching is a set of stretching techniques commonly used in clinical environments to enhance both active and passive range of motion in order to improve motor performance and aid rehabilitation. PNF is considered an optimal stretching method when the aim is to increase range of motion, especially as regards to short-term changes.  PNF can be used to supplement daily stretching and to make quick gains in range of motion, for example, to help improve your performance.  In addition to being safe and time efficient, the rapidly achievable gains in range of motion may also help promote compliance with an exercise and/or rehabilitation programme.
