Sports/Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Our Chartered Physiotherapists/Sports Massage Therapist will concentrate on your specific areas of pain and tension. Where there is muscle tension or injury you can often find adhesions which are bands of painful, rigid tissue in muscles, tendons or ligaments. These adhesions often obstruct the regular flow of blood and can cause pain, restricted movement and inflammation.

Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, our therapist will often use direct deep pressure or friction applied across muscle fibres. Our patients often notice improved range of motion immediately after a deep tissue massage.

Sports massage is particularly effective for athletes with muscle overuse injuries, and before or after a big match or running. Sports/ Deep Tissue Massage can also help the following conditions:

  • Pre and post marathons/matches
  • Sports Injuries e.g. Shin splints, ITB syndrome, recurring calf muscle strains
  • Chronic pain
  • Tightness in the upper/lower back
  • Anxiety, stress and tension
  • Headaches of muscular origin
  • Neck pains
  • Recovery from injuries
  • Limited mobility
  • Many more

We offer deep tissue massage in either half hour or 1 hour appointments.
