You only have one body, you need to look after it.

Sports and remedial massage, also known as soft tissue therapy, can help you restore balance by stretching and loosening off tight areas. Different techniques can be applied depending on your needs and your condition. Often you will also be required to follow a programme of stretches and exercises to help you achieve long lasting results.

My legs had been feeling tight for a while making running painful. It got to the stage where I had to stop after just a few minutes into the run. After speaking to Sabrina about the potential cause, I felt assured that booking a sports massage was the right thing to do. If you want to prevent injury, sports massage with Sabrina is the way forward. I am a convert. - John, Runner from Kingston

Find relief with a Sports massage

Tight muscles cause pain and stiffness which can eventually lead to injury, or tightness can be a result of an old injury, either way tight muscles will cause imbalance, restricting your movement making other muscles work harder than they are supposed to.  With regular massage, you allow your body to return back to a relaxed resting state; this means pain is reduced as muscles relax. Maintenance massages, keeping on top of niggles, are the best way to prevent injury.

By understanding the cause, you can prevent future pain. 

Identifying the root cause of your pain is the best way of eliminating the pain in the long run. I aim to help you identify the reasons behind your discomfort, so you can treat it appropriately, and provide you with exercises and/or stretches to help you restore your normal function.

Sports massage uses a variety of pressures and techniques to help you restore flexibility and range of motion, reduce pain, allowing you to move more freely.

Where does tightness come from?

There can be many different reasons.

  • Over use

  • Poor posture 

  • Joint instability

  • Muscular imbalance   

  • Previous injuries

Who is massage suitable for?

Sports massage and deep tissue therapy is suitable for everyone.  Anyone can develop tight muscles, muscular aches and pains as a result of their lifestyle. Common conditions are tight neck and shoulders, lower back pain and tightness in the legs and hips.

Different types of Sports Massage

Remedial: pain from a recent or old injury? Remedial massage can help your body back to health.

Maintenance: Training hard month on month or even day to day? Regular maintenance massages should form part of your regular training routine. Routine treatments will iron out any niggles preventing them from building up into bigger problems. They will allow you to train harder with less risk of injury.

Pre-event: do you have an event/ race coming up that you want to be in peak performance for? A pre-events massage is lighter and more invigorating and will help optimise your performance. Book this treatment a few days prior to the event.

Post-event: completed a big race or been training really hard? A post-event massage will help your muscles recover faster by flushing out the toxins, realigning tissue fibres and improving circulation. Book this for a day or two after your event.
