The Benefits of Having a Sports Massage

In a similar way to Physiotherapy, or using a Chiropractor, there are many benefits to having a sports massage sessions but even from just having 1 treatment you can experience:
  • Significant increase in flexibility
  • Feel more relaxed and pain free
  • Increase blood circulation
  • Faster rehabilitation/ recovery speed
  • Improved sleep
  • Decrease risk of injury

What to expect when having a Sports Massage

At the start of your session we will discuss what your current pain or discomfort is and then go through the appropriate movement tests and postural assessments to highlight how to effectively approach the session.

It’s important to help you understand your body, so during the session I will be walking you through what I am doing and why, to help you in the future maintain a healthier posture, but also to maintain effective mobility for life.
