Sports Massage

What is sports massage?

Sports Massage involves the management, maintenance and rehabilitation of soft tissue through the use of manipulation, massage and compression of soft and deep tissue muscle fibres.

It assists those who participate in sport to help manage the effects of training and competition. It also helps those from a non sporting background suffering from muscle tension and soreness caused for example by a physically demanding job or postural stress.

Sports Massage treatments

Sports Massage Appointments are offered with our Sports Massage Therapists. Appointments can be booked for either 30 or 60 minutes in duration. Our Sports Massage Therapists are dedicated to the provision of client care utilising the appointment time to meet the individual needs of each client.

Clients accessing the Centre for Sports Massage do so for a number of reasons including:

Tension Release Massage - to help alleviate muscle tension, restricted muscle flexibility and range of movement caused as a result of repetitive daily activities, participating in exercise or sport or work related activities.

Rehabilitative Massage - to aid rehabilitation in conjunction with or following treatment by other Health Care Professionals to help in particularly with the break down scar tissue of the muscles, increase blood circulation to the injured area and assist with increasing muscle flexibility and range of movement.

Pre and Post Event Massage - to help those involved in sport to either prepare for or recover from an event or competition.
