What is a Sports / Deep tissue Massage?

Sports massage is simply a deep tissue massage that aims to manipulate muscles, fascia and connective tissue.  Through specialist techniques massage can loosen any restrictions and make tight muscles feel better.


Benefits of a Deep Tissue Massage:

  • Improve recovery
  • Improve muscle tone and tension
  • Reduce Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)
  • Improve circulation and lymphatic flow
  • Assist in the removal of metabolic waste

Occasion’s when a massage may be appropriate include:

  • Tightness throughout the neck and lower back
  • Postural related pain and stiffness
  • Pre or post sporting events
  • Increasing training volumes including enhanced road mileage in running or increased winter training intensity on the turbo trainer.

Your massage will either be carried out by an experienced Chartered Physiotherapist or our expert Sports Therapist. We provide massage services in our Newcastle City Centre, Gosforth and Darras Hall branches

We generally recommend a 60-minute initial assessment for massage so we can find out about you and your needs.  Follow up appointments can be booked for either 30 minute or 60-minute appointment lengths.
