Is Sports Massage for me?
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just sports professionals who benefit from massage therapies. You do not need to be a top Newcastle athlete to benefit from a Newcastle sports massage!
Sports massage is effective for treating injuries, pain or restricted range of motion; issues that can just as easily arise undertaking amateur sports and exercise, and can be just as debilitating and detrimental to general health and wellbeing (as is anything which stops people from taking regular exercise). It is excellent for helping to treat both chronic and acute issues, focusing on treating both the cause and the resulting symptoms for the most efficient recovery.
Sports massage is also highly effective at maintaining joint range of motion, muscle tightness and relieving the effects of repetitive training activity.

Deep Tissue Massage
As well as sports massage, we offer offer a range of other therapeutic treatments including deep tissue massage.
Deep tissue massage involves the manipulation of the deep layers of supporting tissues that make up the muscles and joints.
Most deep tissue massages normally focus on major muscle groups, such as the neck or lower back, along with joints and tendons. It’s particularly applied to areas that tend to tense up in times of stress, such as shoulders, neck and hips.
This deep manipulation stimulates blood flow and relieves muscle tension, while simultaneously lowering stress hormones like cortisol and releasing “happy hormones” such as serotonin and oxytocin.
Soft Tissue Massage
The key aims of soft tissue massage are to prevent pain, improve range of motion, spinal adjustments, aid muscle recovery, and generally enhance physical functions.
Improved Flexibility – Soft tissue massage helps to improve overall flexibility and lower the chances of having muscle injury. It involves stretching the muscle fibres, promoting flexibility and maintaining it.
Reduced Pain – An effective way to relieve muscular pain, whether from injury or overwork, soft tissue massage helps you deal with pain effectively and be able to perform your tasks better.
Improved Circulation – Good circulation enhances your performance levels. It has a great impact not only in blood circulation but also in lymphatic circulation, which means better removal of waste, more oxygen and an increased food supply.
Decreased Tension – Sometimes stress can get the better of you, making relaxing difficult – so muscle relaxation is important. With regular soft tissue massage, you can easily learn to relax your mind and body.
Improved Sleep – Soft tissue massage can help improve your sleep patterns. This form of massage reduces that tension, promoting deeper, longer sleep.
