Sports Massage and Soft Tissue Therapy

Busy at work as Event Physio
Sports  massage

We often use sports massage and soft tissue therapy techniques as part of our Physiotherapy practice. We also offer stand alone 30 or 55 minute sports or relaxation massage treatments for tired aching muscles and to promote relaxation.

Sports massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity. Soft tissue is connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines and ensheathes the other soft tissues). Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.

5 Star Review:  “I had a massage with Mary on Friday and it was brilliant she applied just the right pressure and she knew instantly where my tension and knots where in my back and worked hard to remove it all! I will be returning without a doubt! Thank you.”
