Sports Massage - Nottingham City
Tailored to a person’s individual needs, sports massage therapy techniques can help to reduce muscular tension, discomfort and pain, promote faster recovery times post-injury, reduce stress and promote sleep quality and reduce soreness after physical activity.
The regular use of a sports massage therapy can prevent many forms of musculoskeletal injuries & issues by detecting muscle fatigue, postural imbalances, inflexibility and minor strains and sprains. Sports massage encompasses a variety of techniques to restore muscle tension and musculoskeletal function.
If you already attend regular yoga sessions with Anand, you will know he loves to bring anatomy into his classes and oversees individuals practice. This enables him to identify areas where an individual may have an imbalance and this provides a great foundation for him to work from. Nevertheless, Anand will carry out the necessary postural assessments as part of your first visit to identify the problem areas and advise how to go about resolving them.

What Training Do You Have?
I am currently training as a Sports Massage Therapist and fully insured to give treatments to build experience and gain my full qualification. I also attend regular technical and informational training courses to stay on track with the latest progressions and continue my own development to provide you with the best care and knowledge possible.
Is It Painful?
It depends a lot on your individual pain tolerance and experience with being treated. Most clients can feel some discomfort here and there but refer to it as a “good pain”. We often work at a deep level releasing long-held tension so you’ll feel instantly better after your session. However, to create a permanent change in a soft tissue quickly sometimes techniques are required that can be painful. Of course, if at any point you are feeling uncomfortable then the pressure or technique can be adjusted.
Will I Be Treated During My Initial Injury Assessment?
Definitely. While we do start your initial consultation with a thorough assessment and joint/muscle testing the majority of the session will be the treatment that you receive.
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
I will be able to provide you with a much more accurate timeline following your initial assessment. However, as a general rule of thumb the following holds true:
Minor: 1-3 Sessions
Major: 3-5 Sessions
Complex: 5-10+ Sessions
These are very general estimates as every client case varies, and often you’ll feel improvement from the very first session. For treatments of 3 or more sessions booked in advance there are discounts available.
How Can It Help Me If I’m Not In Pain?
When we talk about future-proofing your body, we mean it. Don’t wait for an injury to build up. Our modern lifestyle habits of being glued to a chair or couch for many hours a day or in front of a computer screen does not allow our body to work or maintain itself the way it’s supposed to. Add in some weekend warrior activity after a stressful week with very little movement, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.
On the other hand, if we take the time on a monthly basis to address your muscular tension, improve your movement patterns, address lifestyle factors, and ensure that we’re dealing intelligently with tweaks and aches before they become a major problem, you’re going to feel better, move faster, and live a longer, pain free life.
Do I Need My Doctor's Permission To Be Treated?
In the majority of cases you do not need a doctor’s referral to be treated by us. You will always be given a brief consultation at the start to confirm that you are fit for treatment, and in the rare case you are not then you can reschedule after having received your doctor’s permission.
How Much Does It Cost?
Our pricing differs based upon the treatment and the length of the treatment. We also have a few bundles that you maybe interested in.
What Should I Wear?
Depending on the area of your body to be worked on we ask patients to dress appropriately. For an effective treatment we ask patients to wear lightweight, flexible underwear. However men may prefer to also wear shorts and women a vest top or similar and shorts, but these can be restrictive. If you wear loose, comfortable and suitably modest clothing that makes it easier for us to access the muscles to be worked on. Sometimes patients need to remove some clothing so we can get to certain muscle groups and if this is the case we leave you to change in private and you will remain discreetly covered with towels throughout your treatment. It is essential for us that you are relaxed and feel comfortable during your treatment.
Feeling Sore Or Slight Discomfort Following Treatment.
You may feel sore or slight discomfort after your session, but don’t worry, soreness for a couple days after treatment is completely normal. Some treatments can be quite intense and experiencing mild adverse effects afterwards is not unusual. You will always be advised of aftercare measures to manage this once your session is complete.
Can I Go Back To Exercising Or Training?
It’s always best to take the rest of the day off and let your body recover (you deserve it). We can advise better on this after your treatment
