Who benefits from remedial sports massage?
Sports people visit our sports massage Birmingham practice for performance enhancement, to help prevent injury, and to monitor & maintain the best physical condition for their sports training.
Many non-sports people use deep tissue and remedial & sports massage for their general well-being benefits, and for the relief of pain.
Aches & Pains
Some of the more common conditions that we treat with remedial & sports massage in Birmingham include neck, back & shoulder pain, related to work practices &/or lifestyle habits. Just one, or a few treatments with sports massage, remedial techniques & stretching, may improve or resolve a problem.
What is sports massage?
Sports massage is often focused in its aims. The techniques used at our sports massage Birmingham clinic can be tailored to particular sports activity, targeting key parts of your body. Deep-tissue sports massage is a firm & robust therapy, to reach the lower levels of muscle fibre and other soft tissues.
Sports massage may also be used in a non-sports context, for all its general conditioning benefits.
Is remedial / sports massage the right treatment?
You may have tried other treatments such as chiropractic or physiotherapy before coming to us at our Birmingham clinic. Indeed some clients come on the advice of chiropractors or physiotherapists, perhaps to support those therapies, or because remedial or sports massage might prove more beneficial. If the problem stems from chronic over-tense muscles or other soft tissue problems, then logically it is those that primarily will need treating, toning, and conditioning, with soft-tissue therapy such as remedial & sports massage.
"The treatment, stretching techniques and advice not only have enabled me to compete in a National Cross Country race and the National Road Relays for my club but has also enabled me to train and recover at a much improved level. The tightness is now manageable all thanks to David’s wisdom and stretching recommendations”.

Stratford half-marathon winner 2012
"Has greatly helped loosen my stiff shoulder. This used to be a big problem for me, but after going to David regularly it nearly feels back to normal. Highly recommend service".
John F., Birmingham
"I have seen David on several occasions for sports massage following a back problem. I have seen sports therapists before and have been frustrated by the lack of firmness in their massage technique and on occasion have had concerns over safety. David has been extremely professional from the outset and obviously has a good understanding of muscular injuries. Since seeing him, I have had an improvement in my symptoms and I continue to see him regularly. I would highly recommend him to anyone with an injury (or just wanting sports massage!)".
Laura N., Birmingham
"I’ve been a regular client with Well Naturally for the past year. It is a welcoming and relaxing environment and the sports massages I have received have much improved my training and recovery after sport. The advice and techniques suggested have also helped me to avoid potential injuries. I would highly recommend Well Naturally".

Did you know?
Sports massage was used by the Greeks during the first olympic games. We are proud to include members of Bournville Harriers running club in Birmingham among our sports clients.
Is sports massage just for top athletes?
Recreational athletes can benefit too from remedial & sports massage to enhance their training, performance & recovery. At our sports massage Birmingham clinic, the depth of the massage is carefully monitored by our sports masseurs, guided by your feedback.
Is sports massage therapy right for me?
At our South Birmingham sports massage centre, the non-sports person sometimes asks for sports massage, when therapeutic or aromatherapy massage to relieve tension and relax might be more appropriate. Remedial, deep-tissue & sports massage are not generally relaxing, as they can involve discomfort when using firm pressure.
Will it be painful?
At our clinic for sports massage in Birmingham we regularly treat people outside of the sports context, who may have suffered for years with problem conditions. Often, a few treatments with remedial & sports massage will relieve pain, help to normalise soft tissue, and increase mobility generally.
The idea that remedial & sports massage have to be painful can prevent people seeking treatment. At our South Birmingham sports massage clinic we are careful only to use deep tissue & remedial sports massage as deeply as is required, and where you are consenting.
Health issues (safety first).
Remedial & sports massage may not be suitable for all. At our clinic for sports massage in Birmingham we screen all of our clients for medical conditions that might make deep-tissue treatments inappropriate.
