If you're athletic, it is an ideal aid to recovery from injury as well as helping prevent injuries, Sports Massage promotes faster recovery after competing or training and maintains a healthy musculoskeletal system by supporting not just the muscles but the ligaments, joints and tendons.

Our Senior Sports Therapist lead Pilates classes can also work wonders for maintaining a good health level.


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 straighten muscles fibres, drain toxins and debris from the tissue and increase energy to the muscle with friction movements and by increasing 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. The massage works by slowly penetrating layers of muscle and tissue, to reach and relieve Deep Muscular Tension, quite often the cause of chronic pain, poor posture or restricted mobility. Expect a firm, precise Massage with stretching and soothing for the most effective Deep Tissue Massage around and long term relief from Pain and Tension! gradually working Deeper to work away ‘surface tension’ and reach the ‘knots’ or adhesions that lie beneath, often in the back, neck, shoulders, legs, pecs and glutes.

After checking your discomfort and comfort levels, your Massage Therapist will start by warming your muscles using Swedish Massage, they may ask you to perform some movements in order to trace the pattern of tension throughout the body down the trains of fascia and locate 'problem areas'. Then they will work the areas in order to release them, working gradually deeper and firmer to release deep muscular tension.

No sports massages are the same, and we encourage you to try different therapists during your relationship with us, but a great relationship with a therapist who knows your body will go so far. Do let them know how you are finding the pressure and they will work with you for optimum comfort. The YOU Massage Southampton Therapists are all qualified in Holistic and Remedial techniques; they each have their own proven Deep Tissue Massage methods with origins of Acupressure, Osteopathy, Thai Massage, Sports Massage, Therapeutic Massage, Myofascial Release, Physiotherapy, Holistic Massage, Swedish Massage and Lymph Drainage Massage.

A quality massage, our most popular treatment, you will not be disappointed, as is so often the case with other deep tissue massages.
