Sports Massage Therapy

Sports massage is concerned with the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the soft tissues, e.g. muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. The therapist utilises their hands, forearms and elbows.

Appointment Structure

Appointments range from 30, 45 and 60 minute sessions. The session will begin with an initial assessment to evaluate your needs whether they are to rehabilitate an injury, improve performance or simply to relax.

What happens when I visit a therapist for the first time?

Normally your first visit lasts about an hour. During this time, the therapist will take a full case history and may ask you to remove some of your clothes, providing privacy for you to do so. Tell your therapist if you feel uncomfortable about this, or if you would like a chaperone. Anyone under the age of 16 is required to have a parent present. If you have further questions please don't be afraid to ask. If you have a medical condition it may be necessary to get clearance to massage, so please let me know before you attend.

Post Massage Care

After the massage it is important that the client increases their water intake to re-hydrate the body and flush the body of toxins. The client may be given specific post treatment advice customised to the requirements of the condition presented.
