Sports/Deep Tissue Massage
Sports Massage is the management and rehabilitation of soft tissues including muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is important to realise that sports massage can be enjoyed not just by sports enthusiasts but anybody wishing to guard against or recover from a soft tissue injury.
Benefits of Sport / Deep Tissue Massage

- Relax muscles
- Reduce risk of injury

Bodywork Health works with clients before an event. We recommend a pre-event massage 2-3 days prior to your competition. The treatment includes a rub down to soften tissues and work out any trigger points that may be present. This will enable your body to be supple, flexible and in optimum working condition for the big day.
Post Event Massage
The sooner you can get to Bodywork Health after an event, the better. We recommend a lighter rub down to aid your fatigued body and help it rid the lactic acid build up. A post event massage will help to flush out the toxins and bring fresh, nutrient rich blood to the areas needed, speeding up recovery and the natural healing process. We also offer stone therapy (hot & cold stones) to calm inflammation with amazing results.
" Had the most fantastic massage from Sam at Bodywork Health! As an athlete, my recovery is very important and sports massage is one of the ways I relieve stress and tension in my sore and achy muscles - Sam introduced to me to the Kahuna techniques along with hot and cold stones and was able to target my problem areas. I will definitely be visiting Bodywork Health again. "
