What is a sports massage?

Sports massage is a rigorous deep soft tissue massage, designed for active people and sports people, but suitable for almost anyone. You certainly don’t need to be an athlete to benefit! It aims to relieve the muscular stiffness and tension that many of us experience, either as a result of exercise or simply our everyday lives.

Who can benefit from sports massage?

Almost anyone! Sports massage is not only for sports people. It can also help if you find yourself stiff after sitting for long periods at a desk, or conversely if you have a physically demanding job. You may find a massage beneficial if you have trouble sleeping. Or perhaps you simply suffer from general aches and pains? Sports massage could help you too.

I’ve heard it’s really painful, is this true?

Sports massage is a deep tissue massage, and as such there can be moments during the treatment that may be uncomfortable. But overall, the experience should be a pleasant one. As a therapist, I will always check in with you to make sure that you are happy with the pressure that I am applying. I prefer not to work at a level of pain beyond 7 out of 10 at the most and for the majority of your treatment we will be working at a much lower level - it is important that the client is still able to relax, as massaging tense muscles is no fun for anyone, and brings limited benefits. Your treatment is centred around you and your needs as an individual - so I will always work to your level of comfort.

It still sounds a bit too rigorous for me...

No problem. Why not get in touch to book a relaxation focussed swedish or hot stone massage instead? These treatments use minimal or no deep tissue techniques, and instead focus on your relaxation.

I’m injured, can you help?

I am qualified to level 3, so cannot currently work with active injuries. An injury is a problem caused by trauma, characterised by an inflammatory response (pain, heat, swelling), and may have an external or internal cause. If these apply to your problem, you will need to seek out the opinion of a physiotherapist or a level 4 qualified sports massage therapist.

However, I can work with dysfunction, which is often closely linked to injury. These are aches and pains, with no heat, redness or swelling present, and have no pathological cause (such a traumatic event, like a fall). Causes of dysfunction may include:

  • Postural stress
  • Overuse of soft tissues, for example through sport
  • Congenital factors, such a short leg
  • Inappropriate movement patterns
  • Altered movement patterns due to injury

The presence of an old, healed injury can lead to dysfunction - which is something I can help with.

Where are you based?

I am based in Kenninghall, and provide sports massage services in my therapy room as well as Friday appointments from a treatment room in Diss town centre.
