Sports Massage Therapy

Sports massage is the focused manipulation of the specific muscles used in various sports. It uses a number of techniques to decrease muscle pain and improve recovery, as well as improve overall range of motion and flexibility to support safe, effective movement.

Various techniques and movements are used to try to help an individuals body achieve maximum performance and physical conditioning, with a decreased chance of injury or pain and a quicker recovery. A sports massage session is specifically tailored to an individuals needs.

Sports Massage:

  • Reduces Pain

  • Relieves Muscle Tension

  • Increases Flexibility

  • Aids Elimination of Lactic Acid

  • Improves Mood

  • Aids Restful Sleep

  • Examples of techniques used in sports massage include effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), compression, friction and tapotement (rhythmic striking), stretching and percussion. These techniques result in increased bloodflow to the tissues, increased elimination of waste products (lactic acid), decreased chance of injury and reduced recovery between workouts. Other benefits of sports massage include increased joint range of motion, increased flexibility, decreased muscle tension and spasm, reduced anxiety and improved mood which can also result in improved sleep patterns.


    Generally having a sports massage is very safe. You may feel tenderness or stiffness for 1-2 days following your therapy session. There are a number of medical conditions that we need to be aware of prior to your therapy session so please read and check the consent form and medical checklist when booking.

    If you have any questions please contact us. Sports massage sessions at IPS are available with Jaden Jones. Jaden has recently joined IPS and has a degree in Sports Conditioning, Rehabilitation and Massage.
