What Is Sports Massage?

Sports massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. (The Sports Massage Association)

Despite its title, Sports Massage is not just for those undertaking exercise and athletic performance but also everyday aches and pains that anyone can develop. The therapy can be applied to the body as a whole or more commonly focuses on the specific areas of discomfort.


Benefits Of Sports Massage

Sports Massage relieves tensions and restores a muscular and skeletal balance, through:

  • Improving blood circulation
  • Removing waste products
  • Sedating or stimulating nerve endings
  • Increasing or decreasing muscle tone
  • Increasing or decreasing muscle length
  • Preventing injury
  • Restoring mobility and range of movement

Is Sports Massage For You?

Sports Massage can help alleviate day to day issues such as repetitive strain injuries, lingering pain, tension, sprains and fatigue. Whilst, in regards to physical exercise and sports performance it can be used to treat acute injuries, improve flexibility and range of motion, aid recovery and enhance performance.


An initial Sports Massage treatment at the Hampshire Wellbeing Centre lasts for an hour, with an assessment and medical questionnaire at the start (approximately 5-10 minutes), followed by a comprehensive massage. Any follow up appointments can either be one hour or thirty minutes depending on your requirements.
