Sports Therapy

Sports Massage is a hands-on therapy treatment derived from the Swedish style, specifically to treat sporting injuries and sports persons, pre and post-event. Deeper soft tissue movements stimulate aching or tired muscles while other techniques are used to help smooth out 'knotted' muscles. The client usually 'knows they have been massaged' after a treatment.

A Sports Massage may involve treating the entire body as part of a training routine, or treating a specific area due to a particular muscle strain or injury. It is used as a healing art to help with aches and pains and promote healing from within.

A common misconception is that you have to participate in a sporting activity to have a sports massage - this is far from true. It doesn't matter if you sit at a desk all day, dig the garden at weekends, or play sport at a high level; if you strain a muscle the nature of the damage to tissues is the same regardless of how it happened. Therefore people from all backgrounds may, at some time, benefit from a sports massage.

Sports Massage is particularly effective for:

  • Neck and shoulder pain/stiffness
  • Back pain or stiffness
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Hip pain
  • Knee/ankle pain
  • Sports-specific injuries
  • Chronic (long-term) muscular aches and pains

To ensure your muscles are properly maintained, you should aim to have a good Sports Massage at least once a month - more frequently pre or mid-season.
