Effective relief of stress and pain with a deep tissue sports massage

deep tissue massage

A deep tissue massage works deep into the connective tissues of the body, correcting problems caused by continued physical exertion such as sports. However, you do not have to be actively engaged in training to enjoy and benefit from a sports massage.

a sports massage can help:

  • Alleviate stress and tension build up caused by daily activity, or lengthy periods in one position, such as desk sitting
  • Improve mobility and flexibility of joints
  • Maintain muscular and joint range of motion
  • Relieve from aches and pains caused by injury
  • Provide a sense of well-being
  • Speed up recovery time between training sessions

In addition, regular massage will help you monitor your body’s response to physical and daily exercise.

As our massage is provided by a professional physiotherapist, they will note and advise you of any underlying issues a masseur may miss. Each session will begin with a brief overview of your medical history and a review of previous session notes.
