Sports Massage

The Sports Massage is based on the Swedish techniques and it is a form of deep tissue massage.

Sports massage uses certain soft tissue techniques to mobilise and manipulate muscles. Its main purpose is to enhance repair, relieve pain, prevent an injury or maintain health. It is ideal for acute injuries like ligament sprain or muscle tear but also for chronic, long-lasting neck or back problems.

Initially developed to help athletes prevent or treat sports injuries, Sports Massage focuses on soft and connective tissue injuries or stress caused by repetitive activities.

When you think about it, athletes aren’t the only people engaging in repetitive activities. Everyday people do, too – from sitting in a desk chair typing on a keyboard to bagging groceries to cutting hair – these repetitive activities can result in pain and even injury.

Almost everyone knows the benefits Massage Therapy provides for relieving stress, sore muscles, anxiety and even depression.
Each Sports Massage session at Massage Sense is tailored to the individual’s needs.

Keep in mind that you may need more than a few sessions to experience relief.
Some people enjoy the benefits of a monthly deep tissue massage, while others will need weekly care to see improvements. Talk with your massage therapist to determine what’s best for you.

It’s important to be realistic about what one deep tissue massage can achieve. Many people ask for more pressure, thinking that if the therapist just pushes hard enough, they can get rid of all their knots in an hour. This just won’t happen.

It’s not unusual to have some lingering soreness for a few days following a deep tissue massage. Using a heating pad or a cold pack wrapped in a towel may help to relieve soreness.
Though massage therapy is generally safe, deep tissue massage uses firm pressure and may not be safe for everyone.

Speak to your doctor before having a deep tissue massage if you:

→ have a history of blood clots or a clotting disorder

→ are taking blood thinners

→ have a bleeding disorder

→ have cancer or are undergoing cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy or radiation

→ Anyone with osteoporosis or cancer that’s spread to the bones should avoid deep tissue massage as the firm pressure used may cause a fracture.

→ You should also hold off on deep tissue massages if you’re pregnant. (We offer Specialised Pregnancy Massage)

→ If you have an open wound or skin infection of any kind, you’ll need to reschedule to avoid developing a new infection or making an existing one worse.

If you plan to have regular Sports Massage sessions at Massage Sense, we have developed several discounted packages that will certainly meet your needs.

You may also ask your insurance company if they cover sports /deep tissue massages, and we can provide you with a detailed invoice.

We do not work with any insurance company, so make sure to contact your health insurance company and check your policy coverage.

Do not use massage therapy to replace your regular medical care or as a reason to postpone seeing a health care provider about a medical problem.
If you have a medical condition and are unsure whether massage therapy would be appropriate for you, discuss your concerns with your health care provider.
You might also look for published research articles on massage therapy for your condition.

Thank you for choosing Massage Sense!

Dear Esteemed Clients,
We wanted to inform you that we will be updating our prices gradually starting February 19th to ensure our services remain in line with current economic conditions. This process will be completed before March 1st.
Here’s a summary of the upcoming changes:
* Appointment Prices: Appointments booked before the price update, whether fixed or flexible, will be honored at the price quoted upon booking. If our system updates prices before your appointment, your therapist will ensure the correct pricing is applied based on your booking record.
* Loyalty Packages: While the prices of our loyalty packages will be updated, your existing package will remain unaffected. You can continue enjoying the benefits of your package until your credits expire or are fully utilized.
* Gift Cards: The prices of our gift cards will also be adjusted. If you have purchased or received a gift card before the price update, there may be an additional amount to pay to match our new prices. However, rest assured that gift card amounts will always be used as credit towards any session.
We appreciate your understanding and support as we strive to maintain the quality you expect from Massage Sense.
