1. How can Sports Massage Therapy help me?

Sports Massage Therapy is effective in the prevention of injury by easing out areas of restriction across the body before they have chance to take hold as well as the treatment and rehabilitation of injury. I provide sports massage for a range of athletes including... triathletes, runners, golfers, horse riders, footballers, rugby players, bodybuilders, MMA fighters (mixed martial arts www.mdma.co.uk, wrestlers, archers, surfers.

2. How does Sports Massage Therapy Differ from other types of massage?

Sports Massage Therapy is focused on supporting the athlete as part of their sports program, it can be broken down into pre-event...e.g. preparing for a marathon, inter-event...helping at an event, post event treatment...providing rehab after an event. Sports massage is a deep, invigorating form of oil massage working directly onto the skin. This is not an holistic, deep tissue, spa massage style of treatment.

3. Sports Massage Therapy has many benefits...

  • Improves Posture...by promoting musculoskeletal equilibrium
  • Rehabilitation of an injury
  • Follows a structured and clinically reasoned Short-Term and Long-Term treatment plan approach with goal oriented outcome
