Sports Massage

What is Sports Massage?

Sports Massage is a physical therapy involving the manipulation of all soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia/ connective tissue).  It is a deeper more active form of massage that is designed to help correct issues within the soft tissues, increase range of movement and help recovery from injury or pain.  Although a deeper form of massage, it should never be unbearably painful.  Within our clinic we aim to work at a depth within your pain threshold in order to work with your body to produce optimal results.  And it is not just for sports people!.

Benefits of Sports Massage

Sports massage has a range of benefits and can help with:

  • Reducing tension/ tightness in muscles;
  • Increasing circulation and lymphatic flow;
  • Improving muscle tone
  • Increasing the length and suppleness of muscles and improved range of movement;
  • Reducing and remodelling scar tissue;
  • The removal of waste products from soft tissues.

Who is it for?

It is a myth that sports massage is just for sports people.  Sports massage can help with many common ailments from head to toe including:

  • Back and Neck pain;
  • Shoulder pain (including frozen shoulder)
  • Headaches and TMJ syndrome;
  • Pain from poor posture;
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) including tennis/ golfers elbow, wrist pain etc;
  • Knee injuries;
  • Sciatica;
  • Shin splints and plantar fasciitis and many more.

For anyone participating in sport or physical exercise it can help prevent injury, improve performance, prepare for an event and assist recovery after an event.  In our clinic we treat people of all ages and activity levels, from professional athletes to those with manual jobs and those who do not participate in sport/ physical activity at all.

Treatments Available

Given no two people are the same and no two ailments are the same, rather than having a set treatment list we offer a range of different time slots from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. Within these time frames we will provide an bespoke treatment to provide you with the most appropriate treatment for you.
