Will a Sports Massage Get Rid of Knots?
‘Knots’ are areas of muscular tension, massage is good way to help reduce muscular tensions. By applying a firm pressure you are encouraging further blood flow to your muscles to optimise healing. It is a great way to wind up down and relax. It is common to feel sore the day after a treatment but then you should your muscles should feel a little looser. You may need to consider having a few treatments depending on how tight your muscles are feeling.
What is the Difference Between Sports and Deep Tissue Massage?
With sports massage we provide a combination of passive stretching and firm massage. Deep tissue massage has a deeper pressure targeted towards specific areas of tension. Both treatments are bespoke for the client and we adapt the massage pressure depending on the individual's needs. What are the benefits of sports massage?
Can sports massage help with migraines? If stress and neck tensions are contributing towards your migraines then it would be worth trying to see if these helps reduce your symptoms.

How Often Should I get a Treatment?
To support high intensity regular training we would suggest a sports massage once every week. If you are in the latter stages of marathon training with weekly long runs of 18miles. Then a weekly massage would be beneficial to aid recovery before the next long run. For moderate intensity training a sports massage once every three weeks would be sufficient. It is common to experience osteopath for running injuries so sports massage can help reduce muscular tensions and support your training. For office workers with upper back and neck tensions having two treatments in two weeks and then once a month to proactively help manage your demanding job role. However for best results view sports massage as part of a wider training plan. We would advise effective hydration and nutritionist, Pilates and sufficient sleep to support more demanding exercise and job roles.
