Sports Massage London London Osteopathy & Pilates

Sports Massage or deep-tissue massage therapy, in London, is geared toward athletes of every kind, from weekend joggers to world-class professionals. Before and after a sports event or a running session, specialised sports massage milks the lactic acid toxin from the muscles.


Whatever you are suffering―back pain, neck or shoulder stiffness, muscle injury or stress, a sports massage will make you feel better and get you back to your normal daily routine in very short time. Although the obvious benefit of deep-tissue massage is for those who have suffered sports injuries, the therapy is also suitable for sedentary office workers, dancers and other non-athletes who can benefit from expert massaging of their muscles and soft tissues.

London sports massage sessions improve blood flow through your tissues, which effects quicker recovery from hard work or training; you can train safer, more efficiently and effectively. Sports massage prevents delayed onset of muscle soreness and reduces muscular tension helping to improve flexibility. It stimulates lymphatic flow and drainage, assists in the removal of metabolic waste and facilitates the supply of essential nutrients to tissues for the best possible recovery.

Our pre-event sports massage sessions in London are popular with many athletes for stimulating circulation, reducing nervous tension and enabling them to achieve maximum performance. Sports massage allows you to monitor your own condition and adjust your training accordingly. It also enables David to give you advice on specific training, stretching and equipment for the maintenance and improvement of your performance.

David’s deep-tissue massage not only helps you to recover from injury, but to prevent future injuries occurring. This is because it identifies any imbalances and imperfections in deep-tissues at an early stage, so that correction can be made before any damage develops.

Many of David’s clients are office workers who have developed stiff neck and shoulders from sitting at a desk; pregnant women suffering abdominal and pelvic pain; people who just want to unwind and enjoy the relaxed and loose feeling you get from a massage.
