If you want a great Sports Massage in Southampton, then you sure have come to the right place!
Our Sports Massage Therapists are highly experienced in rehabilitating athletes and office workers alike with effective Sports and Remedial Massage techniques.
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.
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!

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 10 minutes should help any inflammation to clear.
