Sports Massage at Flawless Physio

Flawless Physio is a premium provider of Sports Massage in London. All of our Sports Massage Therapists are passionate about sport and helping people recover from training and sporting events. Our therapists are highly skilled and confident in their ability to find the right mixture of pressure application, stretching, and soft tissue massage to help with your muscle tension and sports injuries.

If requested, your sports massage therapist will provide a sports stretching plan that is specifically tailored to your given sport rather than generic exercises. They can provide advice on stretching routines, use of a massage stick, foam rollers, when to use heat or ice application, and how long to use them for. This helps to reduce your risk of re-injury or injuring another part of your body due to compensation patterns.

What is a Sports Massage?

A sports massage is a hands-on treatment using various massage techniques to address areas of tightness, restriction, and soreness. Sports and Deep tissue massage therapies help to maintain healthy tissues including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue.

Sports Massage is a commonly used recovery strategy for relief of tension and tightness from any sport. Despite its name, deep tissue massage can be used to address non-sport-related issues too. Working at a desk can take its toll on the body and deep tissue massage can help release tension from stresses and strains of long sitting hours. Problem areas are addressed with deep pressure application, trigger point, myofascial release.

Regular massage is recommended. The frequency of sports massage can be dependent on how often you exercise, if you sit for very long hours at work or if you are keen to maintain your general health and fitness.

What are the benefits of a sports massage?

One of the key aims of Sports Massage is to reduce your risk of injury. It helps support your training by aiding your recovery. It eases muscular aches and pains that can impact your daily life. If you are injured, your physio might recommend a massage to assist with the healing process and to help you regain full function.

Whether injured or not, deep tissue massage aims to reduce your recovery time and get you back to your favourite sport/activities faster. Here is a non-exhaustive list of benefits you can expect from an appointment:

  • Muscle tone reduction
  • Increased range of motion
  • Improved blood flow in restricted areas
  • Improved fluid movement
  • Realignment of muscle fibers
  • Relaxation/ Reduced anxiety
  • Improve performance
  • Pain reduction

What to wear to a Sports Massage Appointment?

We recommend you wear appropriate loose clothing as your therapist may be working directly on your skin and thus require you to expose areas of your body. We have shorts and towels to keep you covered and comfortable during your treatment.
