Sports massages target problem areas with stronger massage

We offer sports massage to people from all walks of life in our clinic in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

Despite the name, this treatment can be beneficial to anyone with muscular aches and strains, from the avid gardener to the office computer worker – anyone who wants to target a specific area or areas with a stronger massage that works deep into the muscles, ligaments, and tendons.


Benefits of sports massage

This remedial massage is ideal for deep tension, injury recovery, or after intensive exercise, helping to improve circulation, eliminate toxins, remodel scar tissue and restore range of movement. Often it is used to treat everything from pulled hamstrings, frozen shoulders, whiplash injuries, sore backs, and Achilles tendonitis.

For athletes, regular sports massages are essential, as they can help enhance athletic performance by speeding up recovery from an injury or a heavy training session, and by preventing injury by tackling twinges and aches early before they become more serious which can mean weeks off from exercising.


The treatment

Depending on the needs of the client a variety of techniques are used including frictions, pressure point work, hacking, cupping, and Swedish-style massage strokes.

After the treatment, you will be provided with stretches and exercises to continue at home to assist your recovery, increase your flexibility, and to improve your health.
