Sports Massage

“Massage helps to reduce aches and pains, whether caused by sport, injury or simply the stresses and strains of life.”

Sports Massage and Deep Tissue Massage (40 minutes – 1hr 30 minutes treatment options available)

Our sports massage aims to mobilise and manipulate the muscles and fascia and work remedially to reduce inflammation and ease restrictions. This can help enhance power, endurance and mobility.

A variety of techniques will be used like Neuromuscular Facilitation (NMF), Soft Tissue Release (STR) and Myofascial Release but these terms are purely relevant for the therapist and come under the bracket of sports massage. Such techniques form part of a tool kit that the therapist can work in a way to suit you the client.

What makes us stand apart from other massage therapists?

Our knowledge of exercise and human movement. Massage is great to make you feel good, which is enough of a benefit in itself but if you are on the cusp of injury or find yourself getting injured frequently it will not treat the cause of it. This needs further testing into muscle balance and movement patterns. We have you covered for a whole body and mind approach and can tailor an exercise program to solve the cause of your niggles with our consultation service.

Is Sports Massage just for sports people?

Definitely not! Whilst it is invaluable to athletes who might need pre and post event work to either loosen, assist recovery, refresh sore aching limbs; sports massage is ideal for everyone, perhaps you sit for prolonged periods of time, carry out repetitive tasks. It restores sore, stiff muscles giving freedom from pain and discomfort.

Sports Massage has a vast potential for health improvement and is particularly effective for most types of pain.

  • Massage can relieve back pain by increasing joint mobility and help the body to release endorphins, our natural pain killer.
  • Massage can help the healing process by reducing inflammtion caused by heavily formed scar tissue by helping blood flow around the injury.
  • Massage can reduce symptoms of arthritis, fibromyalgia and sciatica by reducing feelings of fatigue, pain and muscle tension.
  • Massage can help with symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. It helps to diminish the levels of the stress hormone and increase levels of serotonin and dopamine offering a sense of well being. Many patients say they feel significantly more relaxed with regular massage.
