What is sports massage?
Sports massage is a great way to boost the effectiveness and reduce the duration of your recovery following an injury or during intensive training. A form of deep tissue massage, it is applied hands-on to either a specific area of injury or vulnerability, or to the whole body. An ideal companion to other physiotherapy treatments, our highly experienced therapists will use well-established techniques to boost circulation and relieve muscular tension. With a wealth of experience amongst our team – including treating elite athletes and premiership footballers – we’ll find the right treatments to speed up an effective recovery or help you perform better.
