Sports Massage Therapy
Sports massage therapy services aims to rebalance your body, relieve aches and strains arising due to musculoskeletal issues. The benefits of Sports Massage are well proven to relieve pain, increase range of joint movement and aid damaged muscle tissue in recovering faster.
Outcome based massage
Sports massages are outcome based which involves the assessment and treatment of the musculoskeletal dysfunction. During your first appointment, our therapists will conduct a brief assessment to understand your current health, medical history and lifestyle habits. This is so the therapist can find out more and work on your problem areas rather than giving you a full body massage.
Sports performance and recovery
A sports massage can help your body to recover more efficiently after a workout and help you perform better during a race. It stimulates blood circulation and lymph fluids, breaking down adhesions or knots in muscles, allowing for a wider range of movement. Blood circulation is vital for full recovery which ensures injury prevention in the long run. Remedial massage for sports are ideal before and after exercise to ensure full recovery from the last race and improved performance for the next race.
While our sports massage therapists have gone through additional training or accumulated significant amounts of experience with certain injuries, their area of focus does not lie in rehabilitation.
Remedial massage stimulates the easing of preexisting stiffness and tension as well as the repairing of tissues in the body. If you are suffering from a musculoskeletal dysfunction, it is important to see a qualified physiotherapist to get your condition assessed before moving on to Sports Massage Therapy.
Aches and strains

Many of our clients report feeling those knots being “ironed out” post-massage. Musculoskeletal discomforts can arise due to various reasons – it could be due to poor posture in the office, housework strains that arise from repeated activity such as wringing wet laundry.

Sports Massage Therapy can relieve the tightness, solve your aches and rebalance your body so you can feel comfortable again.
