‘Sports massage is deep soft tissue massage which can be applied to specific problem areas & injuries, or to generally prevent the build-up of aching & stiffness’.

Who will do my Sports Massage?

At Head2Toe Physio clinics we know that what our Physiotherapists do best is ‘Physiotherapy’. They are all degree qualified, chartered and state registered Physiotherapists. The amazing thing, plenty of our awesome Physiotherapists are also trained Sports Massage therapists too.

We wanted to offer our patients high quality assessment and massage to complement our Physiotherapy and set about appointing a Sports Massage team. We have a great team of Physiotherapists and Sports Massage Therapists.

I’m not a Sportsperson. How can I benefit from Massage?

Muscle tension can affect anyone. Massage can offer help to those who suffer from back, neck or shoulder pain which may be brought on by decorating, gardening or even driving.

Many postural problems occur as a result of sedentary activities such as sitting at a computer all day. These problems can be treated in the same way as those of an active sportsperson.

Repetitive strain injury, whiplash, frozen shoulder, headache, migraine, stiff neck & backache can all be relieved with deep tissue massage. Stress & tiredness are also common problems that can be alleviated. 

We work with our clients to identify these imbalances, releasing the tension built up using various massage and fascial release techniques plus recommending a plan of massage and self help exercises to strengthen and stretch going forward so you’re not on our couches every week (unless by choice!)
