    park in the Woolworths car park GOSSIPS I have heard on the grapevine that a 24hours gym may occupy the new premises next door as well as a Pharmacy and Nail Technician Salon I have also heard whispers regarding the remaining spaces but it is too early to talk Sports and Fitness Massage Benefits Sports and Fitness massage should be an integral part of all sporting activities not only because of injuries received but because massage helps prevent injuries prepares for sporting events and assists in the recovery process A massage can also help maintain physical peak and good conditioning of the nervous system Various massage techniques are used according to the treatment objective such as releasing muscle tension and muscle soreness or increasing muscle flexibility and speeding up recovery time A massage can be performed prior to sporting events to warm up and excite muscle tendons or after an event to help remove lactic acid and muscle soreness Massage can also take care of chronic pain resulting in compensation from structural imbalance A good massage therapist is prepared to take the time to not only relieve the symptoms but also try to determine and remove the main cause or the contributing factors for recurrent pain He or she must be familiar with the muscle groups and each individual muscle in order to understand the specific movements and stresses put on them Massage therapists should also look for over training syndrome signs such as irritability apathy altered appetite and others Sports massage is ideal to address the physiological and psychological aspects of a total conditioning program Back to the top Lymphoedema an underestimated health problem Lymphoedema is a chronic condition characterized by oedema usually of one or more limbs and in some cases involving the trunk head or genital area While it is acknowledged as a serious complication following treatments for cancer there has been little appreciation that lymphoedema may affect many types of patients where the cause is not oncology related and provision of care has focused on patients following treatment for cancer There is no proven drug treatment for lymphoedema Management aims to reduce or delay the progression of swelling and prevent associated infection This is usually achieved using a combination of skin care external pressure bandaging or hosiery isotonic exercise and massage However this study shows that care is poorly provided for patients with non cancer related lymphoedema There is a clear need for an integrated approach to care provision for this patient group While chronic oedema lymphoedema can occur at any age there was a clear increase in rate with age Over the age of 65 the prevalence was 1 200 There was also a clear gender difference with 83 of all patients identified being women The difference between men and women is not explained purely by arm oedema related to breast cancer as the prevalence of leg oedema was more than double in women compared to men A key finding of this project has been
