Sports Massage & Soft Tissue Therapy

COVID-19 Lockdown 3.0 UPDATE: From 26th December 2020 we are be able to continue soft tissue therapy treatment to address pain and injury. We are unable to offer routine, maintenance massage appointments at this time. 

Sports massage and soft tissue therapy is an integral part of our service at goPhysio. It helps to reduces the aches and pains we all experience, whether through sport, an injury or the everyday stresses and strains of modern life.

Who is massage for?
Whether you’re a competitive athlete, enthusiastic exerciser, a commuter, a busy parent balancing the demands of work and home, or if you simply spend too much time chained to your computer, massage can benefit you.

Despite the term “sports massage”, you certainly don’t need to be a sports person to feel the benefits of this excellent all-round treatment. Rediscover your zest for life, as you lose stress, gain energy and improve your all-round quality of life!

What does massage involve?

Also known as remedial massage or deep soft tissue massage, sports massage is traditionally deep and firm and can be quite intense. However, our experienced and knowledgeable therapists will target the session to the each individuals’ needs and preferences.

Appointments generally last an hour, although there is an option to have a 30 minute massage if you only need treatment for a smaller, targeted area (such as your calf).

Our sports massage therapists here at goPhysio are trained to degree or masters level, so have an extensive and comprehensive understanding of the body, muscles, tissues and soft tissue treatment techniques. (They haven’t just done a few weekend courses in massage, so you can be reassured you’re in the best possible hands!).

Working as part of a team, alongside our team of Physio’s and Rehab Therapists, ensures you recieve seamless care should you need more support or input.
