Why book a sports massage at home in Birmingham?
With Urban, you can book a professional sports massage to your home or hotel in just 60 minutes. It's ideal if you don't have time to travel to a sports massage clinic.
Whether you're an avid exerciser or an athlete, sports massage will help you move at your best. Advanced massage techniques work to release tension, stretch muscles and improve blood flow.
What happens during a home sports massage
Your pre-vetted massage therapist will arrive at yours with everything needed, you'll just need to provide some towels for the table.
After a consultation to understand any muscle issues you're working with, your therapist will begin a full-body massage treatment. You can ask them to focus on areas of discomfort like tight calves or shin splints.
They’ll use oil, wax or lotion to carry out the treatment, with techniques to re-oxygenate tired muscles and break down tension.
More info on Birmingham sports massage
Booking a sports massage to your airbnb or hotel is a great way to prepare for events like the Birmingham marathon. The city boasts multiple venues for watching or taking part in sport in the UK, including Arena Birmingham, Alexander Stadium, Villa Park, Resorts World Arena and Edgbaston Stadium.
No, a sports massage should never be painful. It might feel slightly uncomfortable at times when your therapist uses stronger pressure but you can always ask for it to be lighter.
It depends on the type of pain. A sports massage is likely to help with muscle soreness and tightness after a workout, but for medical conditions like arthritis, it’s better to see a doctor or physiotherapist. For soft tissue injuries, like a pulled muscle or pinched nerve, try our specialist injury/pain management massage.
Yes, but we recommend getting one no later than 72 hours before your race, and asking your therapist to keep the pressure fairly light. That’ll make sure your muscles have time to recover before the event.
To keep you and your therapist safe, it’s important to hold off on getting a massage if you’re unwell with a fever or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a contagious skin disease.
Therapists have the right to cancel your treatment if they think it will harm you or them in any way.
If you have a health condition and you’re not sure about booking a massage, consult your GP for advice beforehand.
