What Is Sports Massage?
I can help you with chronic pain, acute pain, injury prevention and recovery, muscle tension and muscle soreness.
Some of the reported benefits of sports massage include increased joint range of motion (ROM), increased flexibility, increased sense of well-being, decreased muscle tension, decreased neurological excitability (nerves more relaxed), decreased muscle spasms, decreased pain and better sleep.
Sports Massage is a good option if you have a repetitive use injury to a muscle, such as what you may get from playing a sport, training, in the workplace or just from everyday life. It's also a good option if you're prone to injuries because it can be used to help prevent sports injuries. You may also use sports massage to increase flexibility and training performance.
SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY
WHAT IS SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY?
Sports Massage Therapy is deep tissue massage combined with other types of massage to help stretch & mobilise your body and reduce pain. I am qualified in and use a range of techniques at sessions based on your needs and treatment plan, including traditional deep tissue massage, stretching, taping, and strapping, hot stone, ultrasound, and myofascial cupping.
At your first session I will carry out a full posture analysis, gait analysis and medical history. We will then discuss your treatment plan and get started!
IS IT JUST FOR SPORTS PEOPLE?
Sports Massage is not just for professional athletes or sports people. I treat people with back or muscular pain from everyday life, age related pain, occupational health referrals due to repetitive strain in the workplace, people recovering from an injury and people who just want a relaxing massage.
Sports Massage helps you and your body feel looser, less stressed, and ready for action – whether that's on the sports field, in the gym or at the office. Clinical sports massage can benefit anyone!
My Sports Massage Therapies are available to men and women, my youngest client is 16 and oldest is 85. You can have a chaperone with you during the session if it makes you feel more comfortable, and any clients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

DO I NEED A SPORTS MASSAGE?
Sports Massage Therapy is particularly useful to athletes and sports people during training, competition and injury aiding recovery, helping in the prevention of injuries, and being heavily involved in pre and rehabilitation.
However, it is not exclusively for sports people. So many other people also benefit from its effects. Postural problems such as tight muscles occur across the population and many of my patients find it helps them cope with the demands of modern life.
ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL!
Everybody is unique. I won’t just provide a standard set of techniques or advice. Particularly if you have tried to get help before for this issue. you'll receive a full and thorough assessment at your first appointment, and I will create a realistic treatment plan. I want to know 'why' you're in pain, it's not about just treating the symptoms, I want to resolve the problem. That way you can get the treatment and results you deserve!
