Professional Sports Massage uses a variety of techniques to promote recovery and well being. It can involve deep tissue massage, methods to increase range of motion, as well as methods to help break down unwanted adhesions and optimise scar tissue.
Our Sports Massage techniques that we utilise include:
Soft Tissue Release (STR)
Muscle Energy Techhniques (MET)
Although the name suggests it is just for sports persons, our Sports Massage is appropriate for almost all individuals with musculoskeletal aches and pains, those wishing to increase range of movement, promote recovery and generally feel good. Our sports massage can also be used as part of the physiotherapy process to help with a range of rehabilitation plans.
Our sports massage is appropriate for you if you live near Perranporth or Redruth, as you can book in at one of our designated clinic locations. If you prefer to stay at your own location, then we can travel to you in surrounding areas, such as Newquay and Truro.
We pride our Sports Massage on being right for you, we will never insist that the sports massage has to be agony to be of benefit, we can always adjust the pressure to be harder or lighter to suit your requirements.
All of our therapists are qualified Physiotherapists and registered with HCPC, so have extensive training to understand your issues for an optimal sports massage experience.
We have many years experience treating people from a variety of sporting back grounds from novice to those who are the top of their sport. These have included English Surfing Champions, British Swimming Champions, Olympic Triathletes, World Champion Triathletes, British Team Gymnasts, British Team Surf Lifesavers, Kayakers and SUP paddlers, as well as experience working with the Welsh FA and Plymouth Argyle Football Academy.
Obviously, don't just take our word for it, see what our customers say on the reviews across the web.
Our Initial Sports Massage appointment will require gathering of a detailed history of your situation, so we can provide the best sports massage for you, we keep this process as concise as possible, so that we can provide as much time for your sports massage, as possible.
We will then work gradually build up to a massage pressure that is appropriate for you. It does not need to be agony and it will not be a light 'tickle'. There are a variety of deeper and lighter sports massage techniques that can be used depending on your individual requirements.
Often shorts t-shirts are a good idea to bring, but not mandatory. Typically, we would use towels to cover areas not being massaged, to maintain your modesty. We will typically uncover areas that we massage when using massage oils or cream. However, if required we can massage through clothing with good effect. Please let us know of this requirement on your initial consultation.
