Sports Massage

As individual as you are

Sports massage from Sage Therapies

Both Sports and Remedial massage are pain relieving, therapeutic massages. Concentrating on specific areas of the body, they can help to improve many skeletal or muscular problems. After a free thorough consultation, various massage techniques are used to increase restricted joint movement, break down adhesions from old injuries and tight muscles are smoothed out. After care is an important part of the treatment with exercises and lifestyle changes advised and a treatment plan suitable for the individuals needs put together. Whether the cause is from overuse, bad posture, sports or an occupation, take a positive step to make you feel better. Do you have back problem from sitting at a computer all day or want to get the best performance from a favourite sport? A program of 1, 2 or 4 weekly appointments can improve discomfort, restrictions and help to stop problems from re-occurring.

Taping and strapping is also available at Sage Therapies, either to help retrain posture after remedial massage or at pre event massage to help prevent injury for athletes.
