If you’re dealing with an injury, heavy training period or just simply experiencing back pain from long periods of sitting in front of a computer at work, we can provide specific massage therapy to help alleviate your aches and pains.
Alleviate Stress and Tension
Designed to help you regain your mobility, sports massage incorporates various hands-on massage techniques which will alleviate muscle or tendon pain of any stress placed on bones and joints.
Sports massage improves your well-being and enhances your self-esteem. Therefore, the massage will automatically benefit you by improving blood circulation and assisting the venous flow of blood back to the heart.
Massage can be used to stretch tissues that cannot usually be stretched. It reduces inflammation in joints, relieves tension, improves concentration, improves posture, and energizes the body.
Improve tissue elasticity
Sports massage allows injured tissues such as muscles, tendons and ligaments to heal quicker and in the right way. It helps manage scar tissue and increases flexibility so that you don’t lose mobility while you’re injured.
The movement of your joints is increased with sports massage; by stretching and lengthening the muscles around them. The amount of synovial fluid inside the joints increases, to allow more movement between bones.
The body doesn’t work properly when it’s stressed. Sports massage reduces the amount of stress-related hormones in your body, which can prevent injury, aid recovery and even boost your immune system
Decrease in Muscle Soreness
When you exercise or perform any kind of physical activity, your muscles suffer micro tears in the fibres. This isn’t a bad thing but produces inflammation deep in your tissue to rebuild the tears during recovery.
When your muscles relax and are not as tense, your blood supply increases. This allows nutrients to be delivered to your muscles as well as improves recovery and reduces the likelihood of injury.
Despite its name, sports massage is not only for those who take regular exercise.
All of us are likely to suffer from muscular tension or discomfort.

After treatment you may experience sore or tired muscles or bruising. These side effects are nothing to worry about and completely normal. They will also not last more than 24 hours and are less likely to occur the more massage sessions you have.
How does it work?

Regular massage sessions will increase flexibility and mobility as well as decreasing the chance of injury during exercise.

In the first session, together with your therapist you will discuss your current condition and future goals. The therapist will ask questions about lifestyle, health issues, previous injuries, all these will help him to come up with the best treatment plan for you.
The first session will include an assessment on posture, range of motion, and visual and manual assessment on the area of discomfort or pain.

YES! Sports massage is for everyone. Our most common complaint is back aches, stiff neck, and shoulder.
