Advanced massage techniques by specially trained therapists ease tension, restore flexibilty and boost circulation. It's a great treatment for anyone, not just athletes.
During your treatment
Your therapist will first check your medical history and any current or past injuries. Then they'll start the treatment, using lotion, wax and oil along with specialist techniques to boost circulation and stretch out tension.

No, a sports massage should never be painful. It might feel slightly uncomfortable at times when your therapist uses stronger pressure but you can always ask for it to be lighter.
It depends on the type of pain.

For soft tissue injuries, like a pulled muscle or pinched nerve, try our specialist injury/pain management massage.
Yes, but we recommend getting one no later than 72 hours before your race, and asking your therapist to keep the pressure fairly light. That’ll make sure your muscles have time to recover before the event.

To keep you and your therapist safe, it’s important to hold off on getting a massage if you’re unwell with a fever or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a contagious skin disease. Therapists have the right to cancel your treatment if they think it will harm you or them in any way.
If you have a health condition and you’re not sure about booking a massage, consult your GP for advice beforehand.
