sports massage

Woodley, Berks

If you practise a sport regularly, compete or the gym is your place of leisure, maybe you have tired muscles, DOMS, imbalances or are simply looking for a bit of relaxation after exercise. If you like firm massages with therapeutic results, this is for you.

Massage has become a necessary ingredient for a complete workout. More and more people are realizing that a complete workout routine includes not only the exercise itself, but also caring for the wear-and-tear and minor injuries that naturally occur with strenuous movement. The physiological and psychological benefits of massage make it an ideal complement to a total conditioning program.

Sports massage focuses on restoring or maintaining the functionality of your muscles. It works at a deep level within the muscle tissue to alleviate pain causing tension.

Sports massage works to encourage the health of both muscles and connective tissue. The main difference between sports massage and other types of massage is the deep tissue work and faster pace of the session with less emphasis on relaxation.

The session is targeted to specific areas of concern highlighted in your consultation.

Sports massage is highly recommended before the competition to improve performance and prevent injuries and after round for a quick recovery.

This sports massage is a deep and intense treatment based on elements of Swedish massage, while incorporating other techniques, including stretching and Soft Tissue Release. Bringing about optimum performance to prevent injury during training and after events.

This treatment will release even the tightest knots, while it relieves stiff, overworked and weary bodies. It’s a deep tissue massage, with strong, energising strokes, that will help aid the removal of toxins, easing all your aches and pains, including headaches and even profound tensions.

Sports massage doesn’t have to hurt. The pressure can be firm enough for you to feel some benefit, but not so much that you’re in pain or feel extreme discomfort. There may be times when the area worked on may feel uncomfortable, but it should never be unbearable. You are in control, so please inform your therapist if the pressure isn’t to your liking.

This session is suitable for all, including those who work in a physically demanding job or anyone experiencing, emotional and postural stress.
