Injury Prevention

Sports massages are a proactive measure to help prevent injuries by focusing on areas that are overused or stressed. They can also speed up recovery and facilitate more effective training.

Pain Relief

If you’re struggling with chronic pain or acute muscle discomfort, sports massage can provide relief by targeting the affected areas.

Performance Enhancement

By focusing on specific muscles and movements involved in your sport or activity, sports massage can help you achieve better performance. For example, if you’re a cyclist, you’ll benefit from specific techniques aimed at releasing tension in the lower back and legs.

What should I expect?

Our initial meeting will be a detailed consultation where we discuss your medical history, activity levels, and specific issues you’re experiencing. This allows us to tailor a sports massage treatment plan specifically for you.

You should wear comfortable clothing that allows for ease of movement. You may be asked to remove certain articles of clothing, but your comfort and privacy are our utmost concern.

Each session is tailored to your individual needs. Whether you’re dealing with sore muscles or a chronic injury, we have specialised techniques to help you. For instance, we might incorporate hot stone therapy to facilitate deeper muscle relaxation.

Each sports massage session typically lasts between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on your individual needs and the areas requiring attention.

No, sports massage is beneficial for anyone experiencing muscle tension or discomfort, regardless of their level of physical activity.

A doctor’s referral is generally not required for sports massage unless it’s for insurance purposes or a specific medical condition.

After your sports massage, we provide you with a comprehensive plan to maintain the benefits of the treatment, which can include stretches, exercises, and possibly additional sessions. You might also receive advice on hydration and nutrition to improve your overall well-being.
