Sports Massage

Sports massage is a deep tissue massage that aims at stretching out the fascia and easing

tightness and restrictions in the muscles.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How does sports massage work?

Soft tissues that are stuck together due to injury, misuse/lack of use, stress and tension can

feel hard, stiff and sore. Sports massage separates soft tissues that are stuck together and

softens such hardened tissue, helping restore movement and mobility around stiff and

painful joints.

Is sports massage just for sports people?

No, sports massage is helpful for anyone who needs soothing, easing and mobilising the

muscles on a deep level. Sports massage is certainly fundamental for athletes to loosen,

repair or refresh sore, aching limbs, but the same benefits apply to patients with similar

problems due to different reasons, such as inactivity or the execution of repetitive tasks.

Sports massage aims at restoring stiff, sore muscles and can be either gentle or more

vigorous based on the patient’s needs and preferences.

What conditions can sports massage treat?

Sports massage can treat sports injuries – such as hamstring tears and tennis elbow – but

also other conditions such as scoliosis, sciatica, repetitive strain injury, frozen

shoulders, tight calves, sore glutes, breathing difficulties and sore, tight shoulders, as well as

stress-related conditions such as tension headaches and migraines.
