What is sports massage?


This type of hands-on treatment is used to improve recovery, release tension, and improve your mobility. Despite the name, this is not just for the “sporty”. This method of treatment can really help anyone, whether you are a parent feeling the niggles of holding a wiggly child, sat at a desk all day, dealing with the aches and pains from a manual job, or a competitive athlete.

This therapy targets the muscles and trigger points of tension caused by everyday activity and can help manage your day to day struggles. This is a very popular use of techniques to supplement your sport to aid in your recovery. It also helps to reduce the impact of daily activities causing muscle tension including sitting for long periods and sustaining a poor posture for long periods of time. This can cause tightness and weakness in muscle tissue resulting in pain and restriction which this type of treatment can really help reduce. 

Why would you have a sports massage?

Do you have a job that involves a lot of lifting, driving or sitting? Sometimes you feel that your body is almost restricted and you can’t move without hearing that “click”?

Booking in for a sports massage can really help reduce those niggly pains you get from sitting for too long at your desk, pushing yourself hard in the gym or leaning over for too long at work. It helps to improve blood flow and stretch the muscles to help your body recover quicker and feel less restricted.

Jess has treated me through a couple of injuries and general therapy. Both have been amazing and helped me recover so I can keep working. Also given great advice on how to avoid injuries in future!

I went to see Kristen with terrible back pain, every muscle in my body was just over worked and tight! She really listened to everything I had to say and I walked out feeling so much better! Since then I have been able to resume normal training! Would 100% recommend seeing Kristen she’s great! 😁👏🏼
