Benefits of Sports Massage

Sports Massage can aid tension throughout the body caused by daily tasks, such as lifting, long drives or stooping over a computer. As its name suggests, it's particularly beneficial for Sports men and women as a pre and/or post Sports treatment.

Prior to a Sporting event, Sports Massage will be applied to align muscle and soft tissue fibres, drain toxins and debris and increase energy by boosting blood flow, meaning you will perform at your absolute best. This also helps to prevent injury by ensuring the muscles are fit and healthy and strong prior to exercise.

Post Exercise, the muscles are rich in lactic acid and may have sustained some damage, the Sports Massage is highly effective at relieving pain brought on by lactic acid or injury by draining the tissues or any retained fluid as well as loosening tight muscle heads or knots that may result from over-exertion and/or not enough stretching.

Sports Massage is firm and precise with it's pressure and deep muscular stretching is applied, the pressure is a little more than most types of massage, ideal for more muscular men and women. Yet it can be of real benefit in rehabilitating your muscles when you have been spending a lot of time resting as well!


When Sports Massage is not advised

If you have any of the health conditions in the list below, Sports Massage is not appropriate. Feel free to contact us for more information on why.

Do not proceed with Sports Massage if you have:

Heart Disease; Rheumatoid Arthritis (Osteoarthritis is OK); Inflammatory Spinal Conditions such as Spondylitis; Severe Respiratory Disorders; Cerebral Palsy; Diabetes; Epilepsy; Very High Blood Pressure; Recent Injury such as Whiplash or tear; or if you are Pregnant.

We will normally offer a much gentler form of Massage Therapy as an alternative for you, there are some conditions where even gentle massage may not be suitable, click here to read about more serious contra-indications.


If this is your first visit to the YOU Massage studio, you will be guided through a new client consultation, so we have your health and well-being history for therapist reference. You will be asked about areas of pain and discomfort and the history of such, this will assure the therapist is working to your needs.

Sports Massage is typically a lot stronger than other types of massage, there can be discomfort as the therapists work the tense areas, but it can feel enormously satisfying and you will feel much better in a day or two once your body has healed new and more relaxed.

If you do have pain directly following a Sports Massage, a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a cloth held on the area for ten minutes should help any inflammation to clear.

Our Sports Massage Therapists have a real talent for releasing tension and balancing the muscles throughout the body. Combining Sports with Remedial Massage, using techniques such as Soft Tissue Release and Muscle Energy Technique. They give a comfortable but firm treatment to effectively treat even incredibly tough muscles. Knowledgeable and calming to be around and as helped so many of our clients with their injury rehabilitation! Click the link to read more about our Sport Massage Therapists.
Our Clinical Massage Team really are the best of the best. They have extensively studied and have a wide body of experience and qualifications to not only treat muscles and injury, but chronic conditions, sports injury, musculo-skeletal damage and many more complex conditions. If you are seeking the best available therapy, we implore you to book a Sports Massage with our senior team, but please book in advance as they are all very busy.

No two sports massages (or, indeed, sports massage therapists) are the same, and we encourage you to try different therapists during your relationship with us to find your ideal partner to fight your recurring problems, a great relationship with a Sports Masage therapist who knows your body will go far. Do let them know how you are finding the pressure and they will work with you for optimum comfort. .
