Sports Massage & Therapeutic Massage, boosting sporting performance, reducing recovery times as well as relaxation

Regular massage can help boost sporting performance, reduce recovery times and stress levels

What is Sports Massage?

Whether you’re in good health, a professional athlete, or just keeping fit, we understand that nothing is more frustrating than being unable to train because of pain and injury. Recent studies have shown that in addition to treating & preventing injuries, regular sports massage can actually help boost sporting performance and reduce recovery times after events. Despite the name everyone can benefit from a sports massage whether injured or not.


Physiological Benefits

Chronic sports injuries can develop due to overuse, poor technique or as a result of a pre-existing muscle or joint problem.

There are many physiological benefits to a sports massage or therapeutic massage, including improved blood circulation, breaking down scar tissue or muscle trigger points (muscle knots), lymph drainage, muscle relaxation, stress relief and general relaxation.



How does it work?

Our sports massage is used to treat both chronic and acute sports injuries. It can also help the body recover from the stresses of strenuous exercise and it facilitates the rebuilding stage of conditioning. Not only this, but it can relieve muscle tension and pain and help to increase flexibility and mobility which in turn can help prevent future injuries and keep you in good shape.

Many of our patients book in for a sports massage for general well being and relaxation or even to complement other treatment such as osteopathy, chiropractic and physiotherapy. The massage therapist will use a variety of massage techniques, trigger point work and stretching for an effective treatment. Our therapists use a spectrum of pressure from light to moderate or moderate to very deep.

At Freedom Clinics you can also be treated by a specialist in sports injury with access to the very latest diagnostic techniques and equipment, so your problem will be accurately identified before treatment begins.


As a personal trainer and serious runner it is important that I look after my body. A regular sports massage at Freedom Clinics helps my recovery from a tough training session so that I am able to train to my full potential.J Cromack – Sports Massage patient

Being a trigger point is so knot relaxing

What is a muscle knot or a trigger point? Basically, if a muscle is overused or remains in a contracted state due to poor mobility or stress; the continually contracted muscle fibres reduce or even stop blood flowing through the muscle fibre starving the tissue of oxygen and nutrients. Metabolic waste and toxins build up around the area causing pain, hard tension and spasm. Typical areas where muscle knots are common are around the neck and shoulders, spine, gluteal regions, upper and lower limbs. Muscle knots or trigger points must be mechanically broken down; therefore, regular massage is highly recommended. We offer additional treatments for more problematic trigger points such as acupuncture or dry needling, shockwave therapy, osteopathy, physiotherapy, chiropractic as well as trigger point injections. Your therapist will advise accordingly if you require these services.
