SPORTS MASSAGE

Sports massage has been a key component of top athletes training, preparation and recovery programmes for years.

This is because sports massage can help to improve performance, prevent injury, reduce pain, shorten recovery time and prepare the body for action. It is a combination of massage techniques designed to get into the deeper layers of your muscle tissue that traditional massages don’t reach to give you the maximum benefit.

Physiological Benefits of sports massage:
  • Improved circulation
  • Reduced heart rate
  • Removal of waste products and toxins
  • Release of muscle tension and tightness
  • Decreased muscle soreness
  • Faster recovery
  • Prevents injury
  • Pain relief
  • Improved performance
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Helps build muscle

 

Psychological Effects of sports massage:
  • Reduced stress
  • Reduced anxiety and tension
  • Promotes relaxation
  • Encourage greater focus

All our sports massages are carried out by health professions council (HPC) registered and chartered physiotherapists with additional post graduate training in advanced soft tissue massage. So you can rest assured you are in good hands.
