Sports Massage

Whatever your sport, whatever your level, regular sports massage helps maintain good muscle condition and improves flexibility.

In the YouTube video at the foot of the page you can see me demonstrating various massage techniques for loosening off a tight or stiff calf and Achilles tendon.

 There are six main benefits of sports massage:

  • Preventing injuries
  • Speeding up recovery from injury
  • Enhancing sports performance
  • Quality rest on days off
  • Pre-event tune-up
  • Post event recovery

Regular sports massage can be a tremendous supplement to serious training, allowing you to train a high level but much more safely.  If you are a regular participant in the ParkRun events, massage can help you improve your PB (you can catch me in the white top as I run past the camera here!)

 

 

Sports injury massage

Sports massage uses specific deep tissue massage techniques to help the body recover from the physical stresses of training and competition. It helps prevent the build-up of lactic acid and is an effective aid to recovery from soft tissue injuries.

I am a very experienced sports massage therapist and marathon runner. I will support your training and advise on stretching and other self help techniques.
