This massage promotes relaxation and recovery, decreased feelings of anxiety and depression and helps decrease de stress hormone.
This is a specialized treatment designed for and most beneficial to those who experience acute to chronic pain, injuries, and overall or specific tension, or for someone who is simply looking for a solution to address any pain or discomfort throughout the body. This treatment can be tailored to your specific needs, from a firm massage to a relaxing massage with a therapeutic approach. The techniques used in this treatment are a mix of sports massage, deep tissue, trigger point therapy and myofascial release. These methods are all designed to prevent and relieve sensitivity in the muscles, pain and discomfort from injuries, and to increase relaxation and reduce stress and anxiety.
This session is 100% tailored to suit your individual needs: walk in, have the best massage of your life, and float out.
- Improve sleep
- Reduce muscle tension
- Prevent further injuries in active clients
- Relieve pain and improve range of motion
- Relieve migraines and headaches
- Improve the circulatory system
- Calm your nervous system and promote a sense of relaxation and well-being: reducing anxiety and tension in your body has been known to help relieve depression.
Please note that after a massage treatment it is not unusual for clients to have their initial pain replaced with new muscle aches for few days. Recovery all depends on the body’s ability to restore and heal and is different for every individual. This can be compared with muscle soreness after a gym training session, and could be a sign that the body is going through the recovery process. Drink plenty of water and plan a period of good rest after your treatment.
Do you need to compete in a sports event or you have just completed one, or maybe you had some long working days behind a computer, or simply you like strong and dynamic massages, then this treatment is perfect for you.
Sports Massage is a Physio-style therapy which combines deep tissue techniques, muscle energy techniques such as PNF stretching, active movement and trigger point compression. It is fast-paced and incorporates stretching and compression movements with the aim of reducing muscular tension, discomfort and pain, as well as promoting both physiological and psychological benefits.
Although sports participants greatly benefit from sports massage, this method isn’t restricted to sports participants, as the deep tissue massage techniques can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions, such as:
- Muscular and joint injuries such as sprains and strains
- Postural related pain
- Golfers and tennis elbow, sciatica, scoliosis
- Back or legs pain
- Shoulders injuries
BENEFITS OF THERAPEUTIC SPORTS MASSAGE
The following benefits can be experienced through the application of sports and deep tissue massage techniques:
- Reduction in muscle tension, muscular pain and discomfort
- Increased range of motion, leading to enhanced performance
- Decreased muscle stiffness and soreness after exercise or physical activity
- Reduced recovery time post injury
- Increasing relaxation and reduction in physical and psychological stress levels
- Aids sleep quantity and quality
These benefits are largely the result of an increase in local blood circulation which helps reduce muscular tension and can lead to an increase of range of movement around the associated joint. This is good news for sports and fitness participants as increased range of movement is linked to increased sports performance and reduction in injury rates.
Sports Massage Therapy has many benefits and can aid sports and fitness participants, people with an active lifestyle or job and those who are experiencing muscular tension and pain though work related activity, lifestyle or injury.
Please note that after a sport massage treatment it is not unusual for clients to have their initial pain replaced with new muscle aches for a few days. Recovery all depends on the body’s ability to restore and heal and is different for every individual. This can be compared with muscle soreness after a gym training session, and could be a sign that the body is going through the recovery process.

Prep for your best massage, ever
Drink plenty of water before and after your massage.
Try to be moderate or avoid alcohol on the day of your appointment. Alcohol is well-known for its dehydrating effects, essentially cancelling out the positive effects of your massage session.
Come in feeling comfortable. Have a light meal and eat healthily on the day of your appointment.
Arrive ten minutes early to start the relaxation process and discuss any goals you have for the session with your therapist (for example, greater flexibility, less tension, headache relief) and specify areas you’d like to focus on.
Let your therapist know about any medical conditions, or anything else you feel is important to the session, and feel free to ask questions.
Insurance-friendly receipts are available upon request. Check your eligibility with your insurance provider.
Pregnant? Please specify that you are pregnant when booking so we can make the proper preparations for your appointment. If you are scheduling an appointment for your partner or a friend who is expecting, you must notify us upon booking the reservation, or schedule under Prenatal Massage.
