My experience… Hairspray the musical!

01/12/2017 Our massage experiences

Myself and another colleague have been able to help the cast of Hairspray the musical at the Empire Theatre in Liverpool City Centre.

We met them all onsite at the theatre on the day of their production to help treat many members of the cast itself and the behind the scenes technicians. The main problem faced was upper back and leg tightness and stiffness due to the constant rehearsals and shows.

Dancers, performers, and technicians often need treatment such as massage to help improve their flexibility, increase healing, reduce stiffness and prevent injury. It is an essential form of treatment that prevents any serious damage during the rehearsals or shows that could potentially stop them from performing.

Our onsite massage session benefited everyone that had a massage as it also helped to relieve stress and prepare them for their show in the evening. Other benefits they will have gained include;

We met a range of people from all different parts of the UK all with the same passion and motivation to work hard and achieve all their goals. I thoroughly enjoyed working with such an amazing cast and wish them all the best with the rest of their tour!
