What are the benefits of sports massage?

Sports massage offers several benefits for individuals looking to look after their health:


1. Improved Flexibility: Helps enhance range of motion and flexibility by targeting muscle tightness and promoting better joint mobility.


2. Enhanced Performance: Can contribute to better athletic performance by reducing muscle stiffness and fatigue, allowing for improved movement and coordination.


3. Injury Prevention: Assists in preventing injuries by identifying and addressing areas of muscle tension, imbalances, or potential weaknesses.


4. Faster Recovery: Accelerates the recovery process by promoting the removal of metabolic waste products, reducing inflammation, and enhancing blood circulation to facilitate muscle repair.


5. Pain Reduction: Alleviates muscle soreness, tension, and discomfort, leading to a reduction in pain associated with physical activity or injuries.


6. Stress Relief: Helps in reducing stress and promoting relaxation, both physically and mentally, contributing to overall well-being.


7. Improved Circulation: Enhances blood flow, which aids in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscles, promoting better overall tissue health.


8. Targeted Treatment: Allows for specific focus on problem areas, such as knots, trigger points, or areas of chronic tension.


It's important to note that sports massage is not only beneficial for the physically fit but can help anyone dealing with muscle tension or stress.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of sports massage?

This type of deep tissue massage is perfect for releasing muscle tension and knots caused by postural and mental stress. It also speeds up the muscle recovery process from training and injury.

Does sports massage hurt?

No, at MassageHull.com we are careful to work at the right pressure for YOU. Pain just causes the body to tense up – the exact opposite of what we want to achieve. There may be some tenderness when working on tight muscles, but this should also feel relieving at the same time.

What do I wear to my massage appointment?

Shorts & T-shirt is ideal but whatever you feel comfortable in is fine. If your treatment requires you to be in just your underwear, then towels will be provided to make sure you are covered and feel comfortable. You masseur will exit the treatment room whilst you get changed.    

Do you have to be sporty to have a sports massage?

Not at all. Sports massage massively helps improve exercise performance but 90% of our clients are average people of all shapes and sizes. We all have the same muscles which need loosening up every so often from postural and mental stresses.

Can sports massage help a trapped nerve?

If you are getting referred pain / numbness / tingling, then you may have a trapped nerve. If it’s a muscle that’s pushing on that nerve then yes, massage will help. However, if it’s something else that’s effecting the nerve e.g. a spinal disc, then massage may or may not help. If in doubt, talk to us and we may refer you to a physiotherapist for a diagnosis if needed.

Will sports massage help fix sciatica?

As above, it depends on the cause of pressure on the sciatic nerve. If it’s a bulging / slipped disc, then speak to a physiotherapist. If its down to tightness in the gluteal muscles, then sports massage can certainly help. Again, contact us for a chat and we’ll go from there!

Should I exercise before or after my massage?

Exercising before your treatment is great (if you’re not too sweaty) as it pre-warms the muscles. After your massage try not to exercise the muscles treated for at least 24hrs to get the full benefits of your massage treatment.

Do you have a female masseuse?

Afraid not, but rest assured that our masseur is very professional and will provide towels where needed and leave the room whilst you get changed. It is vital to us that you feel completely comfortable in your sports massage treatment.

How often should I have a massage?

We may recommend that for injury rehabilitation or extremely tight muscles, you would benefit from a several treatments (appox 1x week apart), but YOU are always in control. For just maintenance massage, then most people re-book about every six weeks.

How do I pay?

We accept online bank transfer to our business account or cash, whichever is easiest for you.
