How does Sports massage work?

The treatments target muscle release to help improve flexibility, reduce pain and increase your range of motion.  This can be of great benefit in alleviating pain and injuries, particularly if they are related to the soft tissues/muscles or your body’s bones.  Another main focus of Sports Massage is to improve blood circulation and provide relaxation to tight muscles.

More about sports massage

Is Sports Massage painful?

Pain is unique to the individual. There is a thin line between pain and discomfort; the important thing to remember it’s your body, money, and time. 

It appears to be a common belief that treatment needs to be painful to feel the benefits. In truth, if a therapist knows about muscles, and it is muscle-specific, the treatment doesn’t need to exert painful pressure for the treatment to be effective.

Treatments do not need to cause bruising – your therapist will take a full history to identify anything that may cause you to bruise. You may feel bruised afterwards but without any physical signs.

All of our therapists are qualified Sports Massage Therapists and use the Hydrotherm System to facilitate treatments.

How much does a Sports Massage at Keheren Therapy cost?

Keheren Therapy offers you a free consultation, which means that we don’t eat into your treatment time by talking about your treatment at first.

Whether it’s a sports injury or a nagging muscular pain which won’t go away, you won’t find a better massage therapist; believe me, I’ve tried many! I have a highly demanding physical job and try to get a treatment at Keheren at least twice per month. Great results which last (unless, like me, you go and re-injure yourself on a weekly basis!). Most definitely worth every penny. Highly recommended
