Please note that our massage treatments are currently not available.
You don鈥檛 have to be an athlete to benefit from a sports massage. Our sports therapy class runs on Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings and offers pre-event treatments, post-event care听or maintenance massages.
When you book for your first massage treatment, you will have an initial consultation to determine the type of treatment you will need.
Pre-event sports massages can be given 12 to 4 hours preceding an event to improve performance and help prevent injuries. It is used as a supplement to an athlete鈥檚 warm-up to enhance circulation and reduce excess muscle tension prior to competition. It focuses on warming up the major muscles听to be used and getting the athlete in a good mental state for competition. 听It also improves tissue pliability, readying the athlete for top performance.
Post-event sports massage can be given after an event and is mainly concerned with recovery. It is geared toward reducing muscle spasms and metabolic build-up that occur with vigorous exercise. Recovery after competition involves not only tissue normalization and repair but also general relaxation and mental calming.
A maintenance massage听is an ongoing treatment which may be required for rehabilitation from injury, to avoid further injury, or to give a sense of general wellbeing.
All treatments will last for one hour and cost just 拢15!
Please note, we will not be taking any sports massage clients until after Christmas.听
Appointments go get booked quickly, so book ahead to avoid disappointment!
