James Ross Healthcare / Massage Bristol

Sports Massage

Sports Massage specialises in the treatment of the body’s soft tissues. The firmer massage is aimed at the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and fascias. This massage is more tailored and focused on areas of concern. Ideal for chronic aches, pains and injury rehabilitation.

The physical manipulation and body positioning techniques are used to relax the muscles, break down scar tissue and muscle adhesions. Effective application of sports massage will encourage strong and organised regrowth of the injured tissue. This reduces the risk of the injury recurring or it turning into one of those persistent niggles.

Sports Massage improves blood flow through your tissues improving circulatory and lymphatic systems, helping to supply essential nutrients and removing Metabolic waste allowing for the most effective recovery from hard training. Sports Massage is a great aid to prevent delayed onset muscle soreness and reduces tension in your muscles, in addition to helping to improve flexibility.

Our therapists can:

  • Identify potential problems before they become full blown injuries
  • Improving muscle tone and flexibility to maximise performance
  • Aid recovery of damaged or stressed muscles, tissues and joints from training or injury.
  • Relax or invigorate the muscles in preparation for a competition
  • Loosen sore muscles, helping them to detoxify, and return to a relaxed state

Treatment does not end when you leave the couch, stretching techniques that can be used outside of treatment time are provided where applicable to help further improve function and flexibility.
