Sports Massage

Sports Massage is the application of a variety of techniques with the aim to reduce muscular tension and correct imbalances in the soft tissue (muscles, tendons and ligaments), which can be caused by repetitive activity, physical exercise or trauma.  

Despite the common misconception, Sports Massage is not just for athletes. There are many benefits of massage, beyond those seen in sports performance. That is why our qualified practitioners cater the treatment to each individual’s needs. They are able to use the principles of sports massage to reduce stress and strains related to poor posture; alleviate aches and pains; release occupational related tension.


Benefits of Sports Massage include:

  • ​Release of muscular tension and discomfort
  • Improve posture
  • Improve circulation and removal of waste products
  • Increase muscle length
  • Preparation physically and mentally prior to sports performance
  • Reduce the effect of DOMS (Delay Onset Muscle Soreness)
  • Assist with recovery following sports performance
  • Assist in the return to activity following injury


What to expect from you Sports Massage appointment?

For your initial appointment, the therapist will go through a clinical assessment which will involve answering questions about your lifestyle (occupation and sport/exercise), general health and previous medical history. The therapist will then ask about your reason for visiting the clinic and make notes on your current medical/injury history. They will then assess this area which may involve testing the movement of the joint and palpating the specific area required to treat. The therapist will communicate their plan for the session prior to commencing and will communicate with you throughout the treatment about depth and pressure. At the end of the massage, the therapist may give after care advice, including stretches and exercises to do to assist you.

Please note: clients may be asked to undress as part of the treatment. Please wear appropriate underwear and loose-fitting clothing to the appointment.
