Sports Massage with Alex Harris

Every Monday. Appointments can be booked direct with Alex on 07813 178267. An initial consultation costs £45 and further treatments are £40 for 45 minutes. Subject to agreement and her busy schedule, Alex can offer alternative days to Mondays.

Alex Harris who currently works at The Point on Mondays offering Pilates and Sports Massage is delighted to announce that she has now qualified with the Institute of Sports and Remedial Masseurs (ISRM) as a Level 5 Clinical and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapist.

This qualification is considered to be the benchmark in soft tissue therapy and means she can independently assess, treat and offer rehabilitation advice for people suffering a wide range of minor and chronic injuries caused by any lifestyle factor. In addition to treating the injury, she aims to identify the underlying causes and offer a programme of rehabilitation to minimise the risk of reoccurrence and improve physical wellbeing.

So whether you are an athlete that requires on-going pre-hab treatment to avoid injury from the build up of micro trauma, someone who suffers from neck and shoulder pain due to long hours in front of a computer or a builder with a bad back, this could be the answers to identifying and dealing with your pain and discomfort.

Alex states ‘the body adapts to whatever social, physical and emotional factors we throw at it, but at the cost of lost stability, faulty firing patterns and overcompensation. Over a period of time this can result in the body becoming unbalanced, loss of movement and an increased risk of injury.  Sometimes, simply identifying and releasing off hypertonic muscle with various soft tissue techniques and a good programme of reconditioning is all that’s required to get the body kick started and resolve these on-going problems’

Alex Harris initially qualified with Body Control Pilates in London back in 2000 and has been teaching Pilates for the past 16 years. During this time, she developed a good understanding of the body, its capabilities and restrictions. To compliment her Pilates and further assist her clients she trained to become a Sports Masseur and gained an ITEC Level 3 in March 2014.

Alex has established a clinic at her North Cornwall home and has assisted clients with various muscular issues. She works closely with other professionals including, Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors and other recognised therapist to ensure that clients return to full fitness as quickly as possible. Recently accepted on to a bridging programme with Institute of Sports and Remedial Masseurs Alex hopes to complete her Level 5 qualification by July 2017.
