Sports Massage and
Extensive Rehabilitation

As important as it is to exercise and to work the musculoskeletal system it is just as important to recover right. Whether it is to reduce those DOMs from the last session, rehabilitation/prevention of injury or reducing muscle hypotension/fatigue related to disabilities and long term health conditions. Recovering right will better enable you to reach your goals by improving performance.

​Sports massage can be beneficial whether a person is an athlete, a once a week jogger, just physically active or is looking to relieve symptoms of some medical conditions.

Sports massage techniques are used to help alleviate muscle stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity these techniques will help:

  • Relieve swelling
  • Reduce fatigue
  • Reduce muscle tension
  • Improve lymphatic drainage
  • Promote flexibility
  • Prevent injuries caused by overuse
  • Speed up the recovery process and aid rehabilitation after injury
  • Prevent recurrence of previous injuries
  • Prepare for peak performance
  • Improve posture and general body awareness

Sports massage can be beneficial for an athlete through stages of participation/competition including:

  • Pre competition
  • During competition
  • Post competition
  • Injury Recovery
  • Injury prevention

If you would like more information or to arrange a consultation then please do not hesitate to get in touch and we can look at starting to remove some of the barriers that stand in your way.

However you don’t have to be a sportsperson to feel the benefits, whether you are a competitive athlete, a Sunday league footballer, a DIY fanatic, a gardener, a housewife/husband, stressed, active or sedentary you should find massage relaxing and therapeutic…..although maybe not while we are rolling out those knots, frictioning that scar tissue or removing trigger points but the benefits of this are remarkable and many people appreciate the deep tissue treatments offered by a sports massage therapist.

Functional Integrated Cupping Therapy

I also offer Functional Integrated Cupping Therapy which can be included to compliment the sports massage techniques. Functional integrated cupping therapy uses a negative pressure to loosen and relax muscles, encourage blood flow, release toxins and relax the nervous system.

Cupping therapy has many uses, but it is most commonly used for the following concerns:

  • back and neck pain
  • muscle soreness
  • migraines
  • fatigue
  • anxiety
  • skin problems
  • high blood pressure
  • respiratory problems.
Went to Dale for a sports massage with the start of an injury to try and stop it getting worse. Absolute miracle worker – managed to really help with my back and a pulled trap muscle. He also gave me loads of tips and stretches to prevent further injury and explained why I was getting different problem areas. Managed to sleep properly for the first time in weeks and already feel a million times better. Dale is incredible passionate about what he does and his knowledge on how the body works and working with injuries is outstanding. Could not recommend him highly enough!

I had a calf strain doing exercise and Dale followed my injury from the first moment giving me all the advice needed and lately with massage sessions. Dale, couldn’t have been more helpful and informative. His diagnosis was spot on. My calf muscle is recovered and following his advice I will get back to train in a safe way very soon. I highly recommend him.

I’ve worked in the fitness industry for 10 years changing almost instantly into a more sedentary role as a manager left me with back and shoulder problems, I have seen sport massage therapist and acupuncturist to resolve my issues to no real avail. After 3 session with Dale I have had 0 problems with back or shoulder for 6 months, what makes Dale unique is his wealth of knowledge in the rehabilitation techniques, not only does he resolve the issues he educates you on what he is doing and how you can prevent thing occurring again. A solid 10/10 rating for Dale Robertson
