aka. "the rubbing bit"

Massage can take many different forms, we focus on Sports Massage and deep tissue Massage but we have a wealth of experience in so much more.

What is Sports Massage?

Massage involves using a variety of techniques to manipulate and loosen the muscles and soft tissues of the body. It’s been around for centuries and has provided health benefits to individuals ever since its conception.

We utilise both sports and deep tissue massage to help promote health, prevent injury and to treat specific conditions that can develop from overuse, stress, and even trauma. Treatment involves a firm style a massage that gets in to the muscles, breaks them down and flushes out all the dead cells and lactic acid that build up over a period of time and cause muscles to become tight.

Why you need Sports Massage Treatments?

All sorts of people in today’s world get regular sports massages… it is not just athletes that need the attention of a good massage therapist.

The world we live and work in can force us in to repetitive, sustained movements and positions, which  results in specific muscles engaging for a sustained period of time. A prime example is desk-based work – we will often sit for 4, 5, 6 hours at a time without a seconds thought. Doing that several days a week, for some muscles, is like going to the gym and doing squats for the same length of time and then expecting the muscles to be able to carry you up the stairs after without any issues.

Sports massage is often used to recover from physical activity in order to prevent injury, this is particularly important if you struggle to stretch after exercising.

For the average person, we advise a regular massage every 4-6 weeks.

How Sports Massage Treatment works?

Deep tissue massage is actually a generic blanket term that is used to describe different forms of massage such as:

  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Dry needling
  • Stretching

All of which are techniques that our practitioners use in order to treat our patients.
