Sports Massage 

What is Sports Massage?

Anyone can benefit from Sports / Deep Tissue Massage, which is a deeper, more intense type of treatment based on elements of Swedish massage. Regular treatment can help with management of pain and tension associated with occupation and lifestyle. For sports people it helps improve endurance, prevent injuries and enhance performance.

Sports massage is a deeper, more intense type of massage based on the various elements of Swedish massage. Our therapists at Purus Active Health bring together a combination of techniques, knowledge and advice during a treatment.

Massage and Well-Being

You do not need to be a sports person to benefit from this therapy. Regular treatments can help with the management of stress, pain and tension associated with occupation and lifestyle, as well as improving well-being, circulation and sleep patterns.

Massage and Sporting Performance

For active people, sports massage can be used to enhance performance as it increases the range of motion and muscle flexibility resulting in improved power and endurance. The techniques used also enhance the body’s own recovery process, reducing muscle spasms and metabolic build-up that occur with exercise, preventing injury and improving the ability to return to training and competition.

Massage and Injury

Soft tissue techniques used by our therapists are effective in the management of minor, acute and chronic soft tissue injuries such as sprains, strains and repetitive stress. Sports massage can assist in speeding up the recovery time of an injury and reduce spasm, swelling and discomfort, promoting the formation of repair tissue.

Your massage appointment

For your first appointment, we will require an hour, due to the initial consultation, where we will discuss your injury concerns, take a brief medical history and discuss lifestyle. The treatment will then be tailored to your needs. Following the session your therapist will make recommendations for any further treatment required.

Purus have three locations for Sports Massage. If you are based in the City, it is advised to book at our Cannon Street clinic based at Athlete Lab. If more central, book at our Covent Garden clinic. Our most recent clinic is based in Victoria at the state of the art boutique gym, City Athletic.

Valerie Fry

I can’t say enough about the professionalism and through care both Millie and Julia have given me. They each have asked all of the right questions, with Julia correctly diagnosing where two other Physios and trainers have failed me. They each have also followed up with me between sessions.
I’m very optimistic about my progress under their care. The facility is very nice, as is the woman’s loo. All around great experience!”

David Woodfield

I’ve had a few physios over the years & rarely found someone who I think ‘gets’ it. Laura is the exception – she’s been able to pinpoint and explain my injuries eerily well from day 1! I’d go out of my way to be treated by her if needed.”

Donal Moran

“Excellent service and attention to individual needs and requirements from the team at Purus, Mark Hokan in particular. Very knowledgeable and has helped me stay injury free and on track during heavy training segments for a number of marathons now. Highly recommended.”
