Massage can improve soft tissue flexibility, reduce fatigue, aid blood flow to reduce swelling and reduce muscle tension. It is essential in an athlete’s preparation as it can prevent injury and promote optimal performance. It can aid the recovery process following strenuous exercise like marathon running or triathlon. We recommend endurance athletes have regular sports massage to help prevent injury. In addition it can be useful for work related injuries for ongoing maintenance to reduce stress as well as recovery from postural dysfunctions.
Our Therapists specialise in Swedish deep tissue massage and sports and remedial massage. Our Sports Massage therapists work in collaboration with the Physiotherapy and Strength and Conditioning team to ensure they are providing optimal care.
