Who would benefit from Sports Massage?
Elite athletes consider this therapy a “must have” and an unmissable part of their regime and let’s face it, if it’s good enough for Olympians, it’s good enough for us! Whether you are a keen gym bunny, actively involved in sport and exercise or a sedentary office worker, most of us are likely to experience discomfort or muscular pain at some point.
It is a great option if you have a specific concern e.g. a tender knee from running or a “niggly” shoulder.
Sports Massage is not for the faint of heart, it’s an intensive dose of focused therapy administered by a qualified muscular skeletal expert and we would strongly recommend giving one a try, as this therapy can help prevent injury, relieve aches and pains and increase mobility.
