Sports massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity What is soft tissue? This is connective tissue in our bodies such a muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines the other soft tissue areas). Sports massage is designed to help athletes to recover from injuries or excess of training, as well as helping them to prepare for events and work at their peak during training.

However, sports massage can also be extremely effective for non-sportspeople, especially if they are suffering with pain, discomfort or tightness. A treatment session can be beneficial before, during or after a sporting event. There are a number of benefits from regular sports massage sessions.

After reading this E-Book some people came in to see our team, this is the feedback they gave us…

I have always had wonderful service at Perfect Balance. Stephen is by far the best Osteopath I have ever seen. He easily recognizes the problem and always deals with it very effectively. His knowledge and use of different therapeutic modalities is outstanding, and his friendly and approachable personality make sessions both enjoyable and incredibly informative. In addition, his sports therapist, Sonal, provides an incredible sports massage and her knowledge of sports rehabilitation definitely helps provide a much quicker recovery. The team at Perfect Balance have all been wonderful and not only treat my injuries but also keep my body working optimally so I am able to live and enjoy a very active lifestyle. Thank you Perfect Balance!

I would highly recommend Perfect Balance for their professional service from booking to follow up. I was considering having an aromatherapy massage to relieve the pain in my shoulder but opted to try a sports massage instead.

I am pleased I did as it was extremely effective and the therapist was very professional and offered some great advice on how to improve my condition at home. I was very impressed with the overall service.

I used to play rugby, until a knee injury ended my rugby career. I have a tendency compensate to protect it. Over time this adds up and if I am not careful causes imbalances. This stick man drawing represents some of those. The highlighted areas are the muscles that are weak relative to the opposite side. My whole right leg then!

This is where having some experts in your corner comes in handy! I have the team at Perfect Balance Clinic to look after me. Sonal (sports therapist) has done a great job in identifying the issues and giving me stretches and strengthening exercises to help manage the inevitable compensations. While Owen is relishing the punishment he dishes out in my sports massage sessions. If you have any injuries then I would 100% recommend getting these guys to take a look. Hiring specialists to get you results quickly is an investment worth making!

Keith on Mat Pollard

I regularly visit Perfect Balance for sports massages with Mat Pollard. The treatments have been very thorough and therapeutic. I have found them very useful in helping to deal with various existing niggles and effective as a preventative measure.

A few years back I damaged my Adductor muscles and never fully recovered (due to bad advice). Recently I had torn the same area again and sought out the advice from a true professional, Deborah Jones, to find out whether a Sports Massage would actually work. From the moment I spoke about my injury Deborah knew what needed to be done, the analysis and interpretation of the injury was fantastic. Not only was the treatment spot on, Deborah also explained to me how it may have occurred to allow me to gain an deeper insight of what steps to take that would keep me from damaging the same muscle again. An intelligent professional who I would recommend to anyone. Thanks Deborah!
