Sports massage is a great way to speed up the rehabilitation process from a range of sporting injuries, helping to get athletes and couch potatoes back to their physical best. Sports massage is very different to your typical SPA style massage, with a certain level of discomfort as we release long standing muscle knots. Sports massage is not just for athletes and has become the guilty pleasure of many a stressed worker with tension headaches and back pain.
