Sports Massage (60 / 90 / 120 minutes)


Sports Massage (60 / 90 / 120 minutes)

Sports massage has its base in the treatment and rehabilitation of injury and recovery of soft tissue, muscles and preventative measures whether by a sporting or life style activity.

This session begins with an in-depth consultation which will include postural, muscular and behavioural assessment.  This is used as a diagnostic tool to create a very specific session dedicated to the dysfunctional or injured tissue, and includes medical history.

With all massage treatments, the therapist will adapt the pressure and techniques used to suit the client’s individual needs and preferences.

What to expect

Before treatment, your therapist will provide a full consultation, asking you various questions about your health and lifestyle, to ensure treatment is right for you.

Treatments usually take place on a massage table or couch. The techniques involved will include performance enhancement, injury, trauma and or soft tissue damage prevention, restorative, event related and rehabilitative techniques to improve the condition of the client, as well as early identification and treatment of minor soft tissue overuse conditions. It can also involve improved self-awareness of the sports person and/general member of the public who may have suffered a similar injury to that of an athlete, but in the form of back strain/pain after gardening, for example. The aim is to develop a treatment programme, including evaluation and monitoring, which takes into consideration the client’s age, health, life style, physical capabilities or restrictions and previous exercise/sport history.

Whatever type of massage you are having, your therapist will advise you of what to expect before the treatment begins.




Benefits of sports massage

Massage is used  by people for a variety of reasons. The general public are being continuously recommended to get up and out to exercise whether it is walking on soft ground for those with joint problems or speed and pressure exercises to build up cardio-vascular improvement. GPs are giving prescriptive medicine in the form of gym attendance which would be under the supervision of a sports massage practitioner in many cases, who work with the client/patient to help with their health issues and advise on a range of movements to enhance or improve lifestyle.

  • improved relaxation.
  • minimal muscle tension.
  • higher range of movement.
  • scar tissues improvement.
  • better recovery by raising blood circulation to the affected spot.
  • mitochondrial development, which is the power station for muscle.
