Sports Massage Therapy
Preparing for a race?
Experiencing muscle pain in your back that won’t go away?
Maybe you don’t participate in sport and simply deserve a pamper?
Sports Massage Therapy is for you!
Sports massage therapy is beneficial in alleviating the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries occur due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can 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’re an athlete, avid keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.
This treatment is not just for the sports person; anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs, people with ongoing injuries, pregnant women and people who would like a pampering session.
Based on various elements of Swedish massage, sports massage therapy incorporates a combination of techniques involving stretching, compression, friction, toning, and trigger point response. Our skilled therapist brings together this blend of techniques, knowledge and advice during treatment, to work effectively with you to bring about optimum performance and to provide injury-free training and minimise post-event injuries.
