Sports Massage in Chichester

Sports Massage Therapy is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is applicable not just to sports people but to anybody wishing to guard against or recover from a soft tissue injury

The techniques used by sports massage practitioners have been developed to ensure effective and efficient results are gained from each massage given. Soft Tissue Therapy may:

  • Improve circulation and lymphatic flow
  • Assist in the removal of metabolic waste
  • Sedate or stimulate nerve endings
  • Increase or decrease muscle tone
  • Increase or decrease muscle length
  • Remodel scar tissue when required
  • Assist in mental preparation for sporting participation

You do not need to be a sports performer to benefit from Soft Tissue Therapy. The benefits above can also help relieve the many day to day problems, repetitive strain injury, sprains, tension, fatigue, that everyone experiences. Many Soft Tissue Therapists work with a great range of clients in assisting with preventive treatment and injury recovery.

By ensuring you use a qualified and licensed practitioner, you ensure that you will be receiving an individually tailored, high quality massage. Depending on the type and timing of activity these benefits can be achieved for anyone.

If you are a sports performer, of any level, a sports specific massage can be beneficial at various stages of participation. For example:

  • The conditioning / training phase
  • Pre competition
  • Inter competition
  • Post competition
  • Post travel
  • Injury prevention
  • Injury recovery

Regardless of your experiences in sport or exercise, whether you exercise socially or compete to an international level - Soft Tissue Therapy may have something to offer you.

Our Massage Therapists will be able to identify anyone for whom Soft Tissue Therapy would be ill-advised or detrimental to their short or long-term wellbeing. They will assess each individual and provide the appropriate massage techniques, and advise on alternative action if required

At Chichester Sports Massage we believe that, as well as standing on its own as a therapy, for many conditions massage complements chiropractic treatment perfectly. It is undoubtedly good when used regularly for people with complex and long standing musculoskeletal conditions. There are as many types of massage as there are spots on a leopard, so at Chichester Sports Massage we aim to remove the worry of which one to choose. The Chichester Sports Massage team of experienced massage therapists all provide the major forms of massage, Sports and Remedial.

Sports Massage is both for treating and preventing sporting injuries. It is designed primarily to alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissue during physical activity, and it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement. You will struggle to find a serious athlete that does not regularly have sports massage. If you have an injury, and decide to firstly see one of our sports massage therapists, they will be able to advise you on whether you should also see a member of our Chiropractic team. Whether one is a dedicated athlete, ardent keep fitter or a once a week jogger sports massage should form part of any training program, alongside warm-up and cool-down.
