What is a sports massage?
if your job is physically demanding or you’re running around after your children, then a sports massage could just be what you need to rejuvenate your body. Additionally, sports massage therapy is commonly prescribed by doctors as a way to alleviate and treat muscle strains, back pains or to treat injuries as part of a rehabilitation program.
A sports massage Leeds primarily consists of a combination of different techniques and level of pressure depending on your needs. Here at Circle8Massage, we are passionate about assisting our clients, whether it’s to alleviate pain, speed up the recovery or to prevent injuries (just a few examples).
So, rather than guessing and jumping straight into the session, our dedicated team at Circle8Massage Leeds will discuss your issues, conduct a range of appropriate tests and assessments before your session.
Since a sports massage can be an effective way to both fix and find issues such as general back and neck stiffness or tension, to long term ailments like plantar fasciitis and runners knee (patella tendonitis). Therefore, here at Circle8Massage, we work closely with all our clients to provide a tailored and highly beneficial sports massage therapy session.
The Possible Benefits
Here are just a few of the benefits that you can gain from having a Leeds sports massage at Circle8Massage:
- Reducing, controlling and managing chronic condition related pain
- Alleviating short term pain (e.g. from an injury)
- Relieving and reducing swelling around your joints
- Speed up the recovery time
- Prevent injuries (this is highly beneficial if you frequently exercise or are a professional athlete)
However, we’re not going to sugar coat it this particularly massage therapy can be somewhat uncomfortable, yet it’s a small price considering the long term benefits. As we’ve mentioned our knowledgeable massage therapists will discuss your problems or what you want to gain from a Leeds sports massage. Our recommendation, if you’ve never had a sports massage before is that you try a shorter 30-35 minute session, or a deep tissue massage first. If you still feel unsure if a sports massage is the ideal option for you why don’t you have a look at our Sports Massage FAQ page?
Ant was welcoming, took my pain history and talked me through what he was manipulating. Been having a lot of trouble with my left hip, went for a walk today and no hint of old pain. He sent me exercises to do after my appointment to continue to strengthen my problem areas. Will be booking again soon.
Ant is brilliant – he really knows anatomy and massage, and will not only fix you with his hands, but also send you exercises to help prevent issues reoccurring. In addition, you’ll have a good chat, get film recommendations, and all with alt rock background music – far better than the usual ambient pan pipe nonsense. Highly recommended!
Ant is brilliant ! He has the knowledge of a great physio combined with strong and targeted massage technique that just works and gets me moving again ! Turned up with a sore kneee that wouldnt bend left completely fine and fixed plus a clear understanding of what had caused the problem. He even emailed me exercises later that day to help avoid future problems. Cannot recommend enough !! Thanks Ant !
Really good massage. I’ve been used to massage therapists just going in with their hands and not asking questions, but Jessika talked to me about my motivations for booking and then worked on the specific areas that needed it. I came out feeling like I had clouds for muscles, and my posture is already better. Amazing!
I’ve had chronic issues with my neck and back and I always leave Circle 8 feeling miles better. Ant is very knowledgeable and always makes sure to explain what may be causing the pain and discomfort. He is brilliant at what he does and is also really friendly. Definitely would recommend!
Circle8 is top notch for any niggles you might have, however big or small. Ant and the team are mega knowledgeable, they can feel exactly where you pain might be coming from, release your tension professionally, and even offer follow up exercises and mobility work to treat and prevent further issues. I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for sports massage in Leeds city centre.
Best massage ive ever had. Ant is really friendly, great to chat to on the more painful areas of the massage and excellent aftercare advice. Wish I’d have found this place sooner! Cannot recommend enough, will definitely be back!
