Massage/Soft tissue therapy (also known as sports massage) can benefit everybody. In fact, sports massages are an integral part of the training routine of all professional athletes, so why not include them in your regular routine?
Our clients range from high level athletes to amateur sportsmen and women or ‘weekend warriors’. Some people require treatment for specific injuries or conditions such as back, neck and shoulder injuries, sciatic nerve pain, chronic pain, headaches, etc. Whilst others simply like an ongoing regular sports massage to help prevent injuries or just ‘feel better’ post exertion/run/match.
So whether you’re at a desk all day, a regular gym bunny, a keen gardener or training for a race; a regular sports massage is likely to be very beneficial.
What is a sports massage?
Lasting 60 minutes, a Sports Massage (soft tissue therapy) as opposed to a spa massage, is a deep, intensive, anatomically specific massage that relaxes the musculoskeletal system to help improve your individual physical issues. Our massage therapy uses a wide range of techniques to help with soft tissue strains or injuries, sports injuries, joint pains and general ‘niggles’.

Are there any side effects of a sports massage?
Sports massages are generally safe for everyone, although it is possible to feel a slight stiffness or tenderness for one or two days after your session. It’s important that you drink water after your soft tissue massage, to help your muscles stay hydrated. Other suggestions, to help get the most out of your sports massage may include gently stretching after your session and taking a warm bath. However, if you’re in more pain after a sports massage, than before you came in, then please do speak to your massage therapist
