What is Sports Massage?
Sports massage is a firm massage to improve mobility and help avoid injury, reduce stress and improve physical and mental wellbeing.
Despite the name, it’s not just for sports and many of our patients find a regular sports massage can improve tightness in the back, neck and shoulders.
For sports massage, it’s important to find a therapist with a good knowledge of anatomy and physiology, who can find a balance between comfort and progress.
Sports massages at Physio and Pilates Central are given by one of our physios Simon and his in-depth anatomical knowledge and treatment skills ensure you get the most from your massage.
We’re always happy to talk, so if you’re wondering whether sports massage is right for you then just get in touch – or book online now for sports massage in Hackney.
What’s the difference between sports massage and other kinds?
There is a lot of crossover between massage types and there are always different approaches and techniques.
Sports massage is designed to help alleviate pain in certain areas of the body caused by over activity – often training for a particular sport, but it can also be from repeated movements or sustained positions at work or at home.
We have been offering sports massage in Hackney for many years now, and our happy customers range from office workers to expectant mothers and professional sports men and women.
Some people will say that you need to book a massage on a regular basis and we recommend around once a month but it varies by person and need – however semi-regular massage can help prevent tension buildup.
