About sports massage therapy
Sports massage is a strong, deep form of massage that focuses on the cause of the presenting problem and what can be done to fix it. It can assist in the recovery of injuries, and also help reduce stiffness, tension, and pain, as well as improving the range of movement in joints where muscles are tight.
You don’t need to be a sporty or active person to benefit from a sports massage. It can be used to improve range of motion, reduce the likelihood of injury, increase flexibility and if you are sporty, then it can help shorten your recovery time between workouts.
Sports massage can be extremely useful for people with postural problems, tension, or injury. Our clients usually visit us with some common problems such as back and shoulder pain, stiff legs or hips, and heel pain.
Our massage is tailored to each individual client and we use a variety of techniques to stretch, manipulate and improve your range of motion and reduce pain in order to get you moving again.

Regular, routine massage can help injury prevention in various ways. Firstly, regular massage facilitates an ongoing dialogue between client and therapist to discuss potential problems. It is claimed that regular massage improves the general condition of soft tissues, by enhancing tissues elasticity and pliability. Furthermore, regular massage may help prevent the formation of adhesion and improve mobility of existing scar tissue.
If left untreated the aforementioned could potentially progress to loss of performance and injury.
