“Sports Massage helps to reduce aches and pains, whether caused by sport, injury or simply the stresses and strains of life.”
What is Sports Massage?
Simply put sports massage aims to mobilise and manipulate the muscles and fascia and work remedially to ease tightness and restrictions. There are lots of technical terms out there 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 the client.
Client Testimonial ” Excellent Sports Massage – would highly recommend a treatment. I have cycled over 3,500km in the last 21 days, so was in desperate need of some help – Thanks Jenna” Richard
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, repair, 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.

- Chronic pain, general discomfort & muscle spasms
- Back ache & pelvic imbalance

- Neck & shoulder pain & tension

- Plantar fasciitis & heel spurs
