  • Sports Massage Therapy

    Sports massage therapy is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. It is subsequently a fundamental part of maintaining optimum health, mobility, flexibility and a sense of wellbeing. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise or physical activity, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury. It can help to address existing injuries, as well as everyday aches and pains.
    Ben offers clients one-hour sports massage therapy sessions in his dedicated treatment room, beginning with a full postural assessment and client questionnaire. Following this, Ben tailors the treatment to meet the specific needs of the individual, ensuring that each part of the process is fully explained to the client. Post treatment, Ben will prescribe specific exercises to further help aid recovery.
    Benefits of sports massage therapy include:
    • Increased joint range of motion.
    • Increased flexibility.
    • Decreased muscle tension.
    • Improved blood flow.
    • Increased sense of wellbeing.
    • A reduction in stress and anxiety.
    • Better sleep.
