Sports massage in West Hampstead
At The Practice at 322, all of our sports massage therapists are fully qualified and registered with the the Sports Massage Association or the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage.
When you visit us for a sports massage, you can be sure that your therapist will be skilled at assessing your problem and will carefully determine the appropriate techniques to apply. These techniques will improve your soft tissue condition and joint mobility, thereby easing pain and improving function.
What is Sports massage?
Sports Massage Therapists (sometimes referred to as soft tissue therapists) treat clients from all walks of life who have musculoskeletal injury, pain or dysfunction caused by any of life’s stresses and strains. People seeking sports massage may do so because of sports-related injury, but we also see many people with problems that arise from physically demanding jobs. Added to this, other occupational, emotional and postural strains can produce similar characteristics to sports injuries.
Sports massage therapists augment their treatments with advice on a range of simple remedial exercises that are suitable to your daily routine. These are aimed at speeding up recovery, preventing injury recurrence as well as improving posture and performance.
Sports massage is a stand-alone treatment but is also a perfect compliment to osteopathy. Your therapist may recognise underlying structural misalignments that require osteopathic treatment and refer you to an osteopath for a multi-disciplinary rehabilitation programme. We understand that everybody is different and will work with you to make sure you get exactly the treatment you need.
