Sarah works closely with runners and cyclists and will often be seen working closely with our podiatrists Jonathan Stanley and our Chiropractors and Physiotherapists. Sports massage can help with intense training and injury prevention.

Sports massage can help with soft tissue injuries such as leg sprains and strains. The growth and repair of tissues are accelerated by sufficient circulation in the area of injury due to massage. Damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions left after injury can all be removed by deep tissue massage.

A sports massage is effective for relieving muscle tension rebalancing the musculo-skeletal system. A constant build up of tension can lead to stresses on muscles and joints and their connective tissues. Massage will also help release the tension from the pain in your neck, your aching shoulders or your back, help you relax, unwind and recharge your batteries.

A remedial or sports massage can help alleviate and prevent problems in the following areas:

  • Muscle Strains and Spasms
  • Tense Shoulders
  • Headaches
  • Cramp
  • Stiff Joints
  • Aching Joints
  • Sore Legs
  • Neck and Shoulder Pains
  • Stress Pain and Aches.

Does Sports Massage Hurt?

Muscles are designed to move, to be in constant motion, stretched and contracted, Most people spend their time constantly contracting them at the gym so they become shortened or spend  time sat in the same position all day, which over time this shortening of the muscles makes them become tight, reducing the blood flow causing more tightness.

When you get treatment for your muscles, the ones that are short and tight will not move under your therapists touch, which then can cause you pain. If your muscles are relaxed and supple then a sports massage will not be painful.

Everyone is different, pressure that is comfortable for one person can cause pain to someone else, Your in charge of how much pressure is applied to your muscles, I constantly ask clients for feedback and am respectful and attentive to how much pressure can be tolerated.

Sports massage is not just about getting deep into muscle and tissue but sometimes to bring about the desired effect, healing and recuperation, skillful pressure is applied to bring about this change.

Getting Back into Shape

I’ve been going to Sarah for the best part of a year now and she has helped me to be able to move more freely again. Sarah gets into tight muscles brilliantly and I always leave in much better shape. I highly recommend!
