When to book a Sports Massage

Sports remedial massage is a versatile treatment suitable for various purposes.

Pre-event preparation: Our sports massage is an excellent choice for athletes or recreational sportspeople before a competition or game. It helps ready the body for action by loosening up residual tightness, increasing blood flow to muscles and promoting mental relaxation, enabling you to perform at your best.

Post-event recovery: After a competition or training session, our sports massage can help alleviate muscle spasms and delayed onset muscle soreness, and enhance your overall recovery.

Sports injuries: If you're dealing with sports-related injuries, our Sports Massage can be beneficial for reducing muscle tension, promoting circulation to injured muscle tissue and facilitating the healing process.

Work-related aches and pains: Sports massage is not limited to athletes! It can also benefit people experiencing work-related aches and pains due to repetitive tasks or long hours of sitting such as back and neck pain.

Stress management and relaxation: Beyond its physical benefits, Sports Massage can be an excellent way to manage stress and a more therapeutic alternative to relaxation massage. The therapeutic touch and muscle release techniques contribute to a sense of calm and well-being.

Massage techniques

Our Physiotherapists may draw on a range of different massage therapies and techniques during sports massage treatments. These include:

  • Postural assessment

  • Trigger point therapy

  • Deep tissue massage

  • Soft tissue work

  • Dry needling

  • Lymphatic circulation

  • Remedial massage treatments

  • Myofascial release and myofascial dry needling
