Who it's best for
If you're struggling with muscle discomfort, lower back pain, or an injury that's holding you back from your daily activities, an injury or pain management massage could be just what you need.
The professionals who deliver this treatment – sports massage therapists, physiotherapists, and osteopaths – have a variety of techniques to relieve tension and help you get back to feeling your best.
What to expect
Your therapist will chat with you briefly to make sure it's safe to treat your injury or pain. They'll then work on easing tension and improving movement in sore spots. They might even give you exercises to try or use kinesiology tape to speed up muscle healing.
For really stubborn tension, book 90 minutes or longer with your therapist. They'll have plenty of time to focus on tight spots and help you feel better.

It entails soft tissue therapy, which targets soft tissues in the body, such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments, to aid in their healing and recovery.

A specialised soft tissue massage can help with a number of issues. Examples include pulled or sprained muscles as well as common aches and pains in the rotator cuff or achilles tendon.
You should seek medical attention from a doctor or physiotherapist for more serious injuries like broken bones, torn muscles, and torn ligaments.
