Jane Black Massage Therapist
Despite the title, you do not need to be a sportsperson or even take part in a sport to experience a sports massage. Quite often, the majority of sports massages we do are for office workers with neck and back pain.
I know, right?
Think of sports massage as a focused treatment on a particular injury or area of concern. It’s for those who sit at a desk and rub that achey part of your neck ALL THE TIME. That bit that you’ve been prodding and can’t quite get to? The sports massage is for you. Or the gym goer who feels more and more fatigued and sore with every week of your workout cycle. It’s for that shoulder that niggles on the bench press or that hamstring that isn’t fond of your deadlifting PB. I hear ya!
The sports massage is firmer than Swedish, but still with an element of enjoyment. It’s a very satisfying massage; a sweet combination of flowing deep muscle work and targeted release of tight spots. Your body will be fighting fit and nursed back to it’s best.
We do our utmost to get you functioning well as quickly as possible. And despite the internet horror stories of pain, we guarantee you’ll experience sports massage sessions like no other. You might even say it feels good. Once things for sure, we’ll have you back at the office in no time.
I pull my sports massage tools (literally) out of the box when a client has acute pain, or a reduced range of movement. I pride myself on giving an effective treatment without making my client feel like they are being beaten up. Deep massage is not something to be endured, and I won’t do it if it’s not expected. A great example of when I would adopt this modality would be if a client came in and couldn’t turn their head for example.
