What is Sports Massage?

Sports massage is a hands-on treatment technique that involves mobilising the body’s soft tissues, including the skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia. Originally developed to support athletes in preventing and relieving injuries and imbalances caused by repetitive or strenuous activities, daily routines, or trauma, sports massage offers physiological and psychological benefits to athletes and non-athletes alike.

My Approach

At Zoe Hills Sports Massage Therapy, I take a comprehensive approach to sports massage therapy. My sessions include a range of techniques such as:

Direct Compression to Soft Tissue: Targeting specific areas to release tension and reduce pain.

Skin Manipulation: Using techniques like squeezing and rubbing to improve blood circulation and relax muscles.

Compression: Applying pressure to problem areas to alleviate discomfort and promote healing.

Cross-Fiber Friction: Addressing deep-seated issues by targeting muscle fibres from different angles.

Benefits of My Sports Massage

My sports massage therapy is designed to deliver numerous benefits, including:

Pain Relief: Alleviating pain and discomfort caused by muscle tension and injuries.
