Sports massage

Sports Massage is the term applied to the discipline of using massage for the specific benefit of all sports and exercise participants. It covers the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body e.g. muscles, ligaments and tendons. It is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.

Sports massage is performed by our Sports specific physiotherapists.

What to expect

The therapist will ask you if you have any underlying conditions or specific sore parts to be aware of. If you do, please inform the therapist before the session. The massage therapist will need to have access to the body part or parts so please where appropriate clothing. All the therapists are either approved physiotherapists or massage therapists, so you can be reassured, that it is a professional service. Please bring some water along as some patients can feel dehydrated as they leave the clinic. Sports massages are often deeper than therapeutic massage. If it is your first time with a therapist, do not hesitate in saying please go deeper or can you go a bit lighter please. Overtime the therapist will become use to what you need as a patient and adjust their treatment accordingly.

How many sessions will I have?

This depends on you. Many patients book once or twice a month for maintenance of specific troublesome postural tightness, while others just need a one off massage, following, or leading up to a specific event. Other people like distance runners and triathletes pre-book massages as they hit their high training weeks to prevent tightness from developing and to allow them to continue following their training plan unhindered. We never push unnecessary treatments just recommend options for you. It is up to you how you proceed.
