Treat Your Body Like A Professional Would – we are all athletes in our own right. We may not have the huge crowds or the big pay packets (unfortunately) but we place our bodies through a regular routine which takes it’s toll on the body.
Whether you are an avid gym goer or you work a typical 9-5 in the office – your body has to be up to task as it is placed under stress each day. Being active and in a routine means our soft tissues are being worked repeatedly which can lead to discomfort and imbalance building up unless we take care of.
Sure, it isn’t playing in the Premier League or running in the Olympics but your body is trying to cope with the demands that YOU need to be fit for!
What is Sports Massage?
There is more of a specific focus on certain areas of the body with a sports massage. If you are finding that your lower back has become increasingly tight and restricted then the focus will be placed upon the release of this area, on the other hand it may be tight hamstrings or hip flexors which you feel need some attention. Sports massage gives specific attention to the particular problem you are having, combined with our therapists experience and knowledge of anatomy which helps to provide the best result when combining various techniques to achieve your goals. Muscles, ligaments and tendons have specific insertion points, our anatomy is complex in how it is arranged – sports massage takes in to account all of these different tissues and targets them for the best result.

Benefits of Sports Massage
The list of benefits for a sports massage is endless – because your massage session will be more focused on your performance the benefits directly translate to your sport and activity levels. Sports massage helps to improve your recovery from activity and hep to reduce general discomfort and pain levels allowing for greater ability to perform your tasks to a higher level. If you have sustained a muscle, ligament or tendon injury – the need to break down scar tissue and adhesions in order to help you fully recover can be helped by sports massage. Imbalance and areas of tightness can be common depending on your sport and activity – maintenance can help to prevent injuries and improve your ability to perform. Sports massage helps to contribute towards you operating at your best ability by maintaining your condition, reducing the risk of injury, aiding relaxation and maintaining your range of movement.

Is Sports Massage For Me?
It doesn’t matter if you are casual exerciser or you take things seriously, it doesn’t matter if you have an active job or a sedentary job – sports massage can provide benefits for all different scenarios.
Due to its specific approach aimed at targeting your chosen area and problem - it is suitable for everyone. Sports massage should be looked at as essential body care. Anything that you do with your body which requires repetition and routine will make your body change to those demands – our body works in so many different ways and it is important to vary our activity in order to stop our bodies breaking down – this is why sports massage is essential.
What is Involved?
Your session will be led by an experienced therapist who after an assessment will cater the treatment to your needs. Knowledge of key anatomy points will allow the therapist to target the points that need attention – they will do this by mobilisation and manipulation of the body’s soft tissues.
This can include a wide range of techniques ranging from light to firm pressure applied with the hands and fingers. At our clinic we also have percussive therapy which may be part of your treatment - using the latest technology in the TheraGun G3PRO™. We also use IASTM tools which help in the treatment of fascia and other soft tissues.
How Will You Feel After Treatment?
In one word – rejuvenated! That is the whole point of the treatment – it’s a restorative process which aims to provide balance for your body. Life is all about balance!
It is natural for you to feel relaxed, tired and potentially thirsty from your treatment. The process of massage does increase circulation and move fluids around the body. You should notice that the area being targeted by the sports massage will be reduced in discomfort and movement should feel easier.
If your session is focused around rehab or returning from injury – it should give you the confidence to be able to get back on track and carry on with your life.
A popular choice for most clients is a regular visit to the clinic to have maintenance massage performed. This can vary from person to person but some great examples of our clients are desk workers looking to manage their neck and shoulder health by stopping build-up of tightness and reduced range of motion produced by desk working. Gym enthusiasts also come to manage specific areas of their body to keep their soft tissues in top, functioning conditioning to reduce their injury and improve performance.
