Sports Massage

The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension, which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur due to overexertion and overuse, massage can help to break them down quickly and effectively.

Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether you are an athlete, ardent keep fitter, or a weekly jogger.

Who can benefit?
The treatment is not just for the sports person, anyone can benefit including people with physically demanding jobs and those with occupational, emotional, and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries.

How does it work?
Sports massage tends to be deeper and more intense. It is based on various elements of Swedish massage and often incorporates a combination of other techniques involving stretching, compression, friction, toning and trigger point response techniques similar to acupressure and shiatsu. The skilled therapist brings together a blend of these techniques, knowledge and advice to work effectively with the client to bring about optimum performance and to provide injury free training and minimise post event trauma.
