Sports Massage is a deep tissue massage that loosens tight muscles and breaks down adhesions in muscle fibres. It aids your recovery from injuries or after surgery or it can be used as part of your training programme in connection with a warm up or a cool down.
Sports massage is not just for sportsmen or women! It can also be used as an adjunct to your normal physiotherapy treatment or simply to relieve muscle tension or treat repetitive strain injuries, which everyone experiences from time to time.
Our Sports massage therapist is extremely experienced and has provided massage support for Team GB at the Beijing and London Olympic Games.
Sports massage helps to:
No form of massage should hurt anyone. Tender areas of tension or injury sometimes needs to be handled with some degree of pressure which enables the deep tissue work to break up adhesions in the muscle or scar tissue. Communication between therapist and client is essential.
Treatment can be focused on specific areas, including:
Yes, you are very welcome to bring somebody along; we are also able to provide chaperones should you require. Please inform our reception team when booking your appointment and we will happily arrange this on your behalf.
Please bear in mind children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who must remain throughout the treatment.
It depends on the area being treated. There is no need to take off all your clothes for a foot and ankle massage; just wear loose trousers which you can pull up over your knees. We endeavour to ensure the modesty and dignity of our clients and use towels where possible to drape across during a treatment, helping you feel relaxed and comfortable.
To get the full benefits out of a full body massage it is recommended you remove your shirt, trousers and socks. You can wear underwear, bra, swimming trunks or swimming costume, whatever you feel most comfortable with. You do not need to reveal any part of your body in any way that makes you feel uncomfortable, we will do our utmost to make you feel comfortable and relaxed.
