From sporting injuries to general aches and pains, a sports massage can work wonders on your physical and mental wellbeing so no matter what you need, our Sports Massage Therapists have got you covered.
During your first session your therapist will talk to you about the reason for your visit, they will then advise you on, and proceed with, the best approach to relieve your symptoms.
What is a Sports Massage?
Sports massage uses specialised techniques (often post exercise) to reduce muscle tightness. It helps to improve your circulation and range of movement, as well as treating and preventing muscle and joint pain.
This type of massage is beneficial for:
- Muscle or joint pain
- Restricted movement
- Muscular Fatigue
- Injury treatment and prevention
As well as helping you heal physically, it can support you in preparing mentally for the rest of your training plan or next big event:
- Help you feel calm, relaxed and ready to take on whatever your sport can throw at you
- Reduce anxiety and tension
- Increase your energy levels, so you’re ready for your next big event
- Reduce pain by relaxing your muscles and releasing natural, pain-killing endorphins
- Relax and stretch your muscles to help you move faster and go further without pain or injury
Who are Sports Massages suitable for?
Anyone! Sports Massages aren’t just for athletes. The techniques used by our specialists are suitable for both sports people and non-athletes alike. They can help with injuries, chronic pain, muscle aches and restricted range of motion in all of us.
What should I wear to a Sports Massage appointment?
We ask all sports massage clients to wear clothing which makes the focus area easily accessible. Your therapist will be able to discuss how best to approach your massage at the start of the session, often using towels where appropriate to expose the area. Most importantly, wear something you are most comfortable in.
