Sports/Deep Tissue Massage

Description

Hannah is available for sports massages whilst Sophie is on Maternity leave

We are really pleased to be able to offer Sports massages at our Sunderland Clinic with Sophie our sports therapist.

Sports/Deep tissue massage is a form of manual therapy, which manipulates of the soft tissues including muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia with effectively applied pressure to both deep and superficial tissues. Throughout the treatment, different levels of pressure will be applied to compliment each different technique used. The techniques used throughout a sports massage are applied to encourage blood flow to the muscles to oxygenate them more efficiently and speed up their recovery and healing time.

Sports massage is designed to treat musculoskeletal injuries as well as chronic pain, muscular imbalances and stress. As this modality is used to reduce muscular tension, increase flexibility and enhance mobility, sports massage can be greatly beneficial for both athletes and non-athletes.
