Massage For Exercise Performance

Helping you get the most out of your fitness journey

Massage is a really versatile tool that can help you reach your goals. Examples of client activities range from regular gym use, running and cycling to golf, extreme sports, field and court sports. 

Here are two recommended massage options. You can find out more about my approach and the benefits of massage, by scrolling down.

Soft Tissue Therapy

Soft tissue therapy combines targeted massage with active muscle techniques, similar to classic sports massage. Sessions include movement assessment and can offer rehab advice to help you achieve your exercise goals.

 

  • Functional and specific to areas of tension

  • Depth of pressure suited to your preference

  • Goal orientated

  • Recommended monthly or 6-weekly sessions

Soft tissue therapy combines massage with movement assessment and active stretch and contract techniques, and it can support you with your sports and exercise by:

  • Helping you manage niggles, aches and pains that may develop throughout your training.

  • Targeting joints with limited range of movement, that may be impacting your ability to perform key movements, or that may be causing sub-optimal loading.

  • Providing pre and post event massage to help the body warm up and recover from sports events and matches.

  • Promoting relaxation and stress reduction for anyone with a busy and demanding schedule, something that cannot be overlooked.

What to expect

 

Appointments will revolve around movement testing to assess the quality and range of your movement, as well as muscle readiness for loading. 

A plan is agreed, focused on the goals you have in mind, for example, increased overhead range of movement, better squat depth, rotation for a greater golf swing or learning how to prepare the body for exercise so you get the most out of your training. It's important to also discuss the number and frequency of massages we think will be beneficial for you, depending on your goals.

Massage, mobilising techniques and self-care advice will be used to deliver the agreed outcomes and an open dialogue will be encouraged to ensure the sessions are effective and tailored to you.

I enjoy working alongside personal trainers and physiotherapists, taking a team approach towards you reaching your goals. I have excellent contacts in both Basingstoke and Alresford across these specialisms that we can pull on for their support if we deem it necessary.

Outcome focused

Regardless of the number of treatments you choose, each session will review where you are relative to the goals we have set, so we can ensure the services remains effective and agile as your training or sport season changes. And you don't need to be an elite athlete to benefit from this style of massage, this massage style is great for anyone who wants to keep fit and mobile.
