Overview

Benefits

Sports massage encourages blood flow circulation which increases oxygen to the muscles which helps with recovery.

It helps to prevent from injury by stretching the tissues and realigning the muscles fibres which optimise their functionality and it will improve the range of movement.

Treatment

Our recommendation

“If you undertake a lot of strenuous physical activity, this treatment helps you to break down the tension it causes in your muscles as well as re-oxygenating them by increasing blood flow to the tissue” says Nadège, our lead therapist.

“Expect trigger point techniques, soft tissue and myofascial release and strong pressure that manipulates your muscles.

These techniques are perfect for stretching and lengthening muscles and help with any post-workout recovery.

It’s not just for sportspeople though - everyone can benefit from a sports massage”

During your treatment

Your therapist will chat through your medical history and any current or past injuries, and will perform a postural and gait analysis too.

They’ll use oil, wax or lotion to carry out the treatment using some, or all, of the techniques mentioned above. Get ready to start smashing those PBs!

FAQ

Covid-19 safety

After you’ve booked, your therapist will reach out to you via the Urban app to run through some pre-screening checks and make sure a home visit is right for you. If it’s not, they’ll advise what to do instead and we’ll refund you in full.

All Urban pros are trained in Covid-19 safety and will wear a mask and full PPE to your appointment. You’ll also need to wear a mask, wash your hands and help your pro avoid contact with other members of your household.

You’re feeling unwell and/or you or anyone in your household needs to self-isolate or shield.
