    A Sports Massage is a style of massage specifically designed to improve function and movement in your muscles and joints, support muscle recovery and prevent injuries.

    From pounding the streets of Glasgow training for this year’s half marathon, to spending hours working at your desk, we all undertake activity that over time has a detrimental impact on our bodies. Sports massage therapy is an excellent form of treatment to correct the imbalances in soft tissue generally arising from such repetitive activity.

    Not only this, sports massage and deep tissue massage are also an excellent form of treatment for any of those unfortunate sports-related injuries – be it a nasty tackle, a nasty fall, or some other form of impact preventing you from being on top of your game.
    Your sports massage treatment will typically begin with a general health consultation and physical assessment to help your therapist understand how best to tailor your treatment to your specific needs.

    Treatment generally begins with gentle, firm pressure to uncover areas of tension. In those tighter areas, your therapist will gradually work deeper into the tissue. Don’t worry, though, communication will be maintained throughout and intensity adjusted to suit your preference and ensure that you’re comfortable.

    On conclusion of the massage, your therapist will likely give you advice on any further treatment, exercises or stretches that may help between sessions, as well as ensure you have plenty of water to drink to flush out those toxins.

    Just so you’re aware, you are more than welcome to bring a friend or family member along to your treatment, and please do let us know if you’d rather be seen by a same sex therapist.
    Not at all. Many of our clients report how relaxing their sports massage sessions are! If the thought of a sports massage being painful is putting you off, you needn’t worry. An experienced therapist knows how to ensure you receive the highest level of care and it is absolutely not about making you suffer.

    Sports massage may entail a range of techniques, some of which can be uncomfortable (but not painful) – namely, the use of deep transverse frictions, as well as the use of trigger point therapy. Don’t worry, though, communication will be maintained throughout and intensity adjusted to suit your preference.
    Both sporting and non-sporting individuals have regular sports massage due to the vast array of benefits it has for the human body. For the sporting population, sports massage aids with performance enhancement, injury prevention and injury rehabilitation. For the non-sporting population, sports massage is beneficial for reducing musculoskeletal injuries and muscle tightness due to occupation and/or posture, such as lower back pain, or reducing muscle soreness in the upper back and neck due to long periods of time sat in an office chair.
    Most elite athletes get at least one massage per week. For most amateur athletes who still take their sport and training seriously or regular gym-goers, once a week to once a fortnight is recommended. For most people who do regular light exercise once every two, three or four weeks is usually sufficient.

    For individuals who are in pain or recovering from injury, it is best to seek the advice of your therapist to adjust treatments accordingly. For maintenance purposes, once every 4-8 weeks is usually recommended.
