What is Sports Massage?
Sports massage is a physical, hands-on massage applied directly to the skin and is used as a means to manage, mobilise, manipulate and rehabilitate the soft tissues of the body such as muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Sports massage combines deep tissue work & stretching techniques to avoid injury & its recurrence. Regular massage relieves unbalanced muscles tensions, improving muscular functions & performance.
Sports massage is a perfect way to banish the stress & fatigue you have accumulated throughout your busy life. It is a very gentle form of body work which can have a profound effect on the mind & body.
Our sports massage therapists have a great understanding of muscle and skeletal anatomy and physiology, and often a keen interest in sport themselves. This puts them in the unique position to truly understand the dynamics of your chosen activity and the sports specific demands that that places on the body.
Our therapists work alongside highly qualified and experienced Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors who provide the most complete and well rounded approach to injury recovery and maintenance.
