Sports massage

How sports massage can help you

You don't need to be an athlete to benefit from a sports massage. If you are health conscious and want to avoid the build up of muscle tension, you will benefit from regular sports massage treatments. This allows you to feel more mobile and energised from the improvement of the blood flow to the muscles.


It's not always easy to find time to exercise as much as we'd like to. Sports massage treatment will help increase your energy levels which can help improve your overall well being and performance.

Common aches and pains that can be treated with sports massage:

  • Back pain, spasm or tension

  • Lower back pain/tightness

  • Shoulder pain and tightness

  • Neck pain/Stiff neck

  • Tight glutes

  • Sore Achilles tendon

  • General muscle tightness

  • Tennis elbow

  • Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS)

What are the other benefits of sports massage therapy?

Whether you're regular gym-goer, keen jogger or spend too much time behind the desk, sports massage can help anyone.


It also has a number of physiological, psychological and physical benefits:


  • Reduce stress - Your body doesn’t function as well when it’s under stress. Sports massage can reduce the stress hormones that your body produces when it’s under stress.


  • Relaxing - Through heat generation and circulation your muscles will begin to relax and after an intense workout or a game of football, the best thing for your muscles to do is relax.


  •  Improved mood - When your body releases the serotonin and endorphins into your bloodstream through   manipulation your mood begins to increase and improve.



  • Pain reduction - Tension in muscles can often cause pain, sports massage can help reduce this by releasing body endorphins, this not only reduces pain but starts to make your body feel good.


  • Encourages blood circulation - Sports massage not only helps increase blood flow but helps open your blood vessels through stretching and enabling the nutrients to pass through them easier.

  • Perform better - If you’re active or play regular sport, a sports massage will help increase your performance. Looking after your muscles will allow you to run faster, swim further and lift heavier. Essentially regardless of what activity, you will feel the benefit.

What can I expect from my first treatment?

Your first treatment will consist of an initial assessment, which will involve discussing your health background, your lifestyle and where any pain points are located. Sports massages are different to a regular massage, as the treatment tends to focus on a particular area, with the use of manipulation to release any tension felt in the muscle group.
