DEEP TISSUE SPORTS MASSAGE
Manchester City Centre & Locally
What is a Deep Tissue Sports Massage?
A sports massage is more invigorating than a standard 'relaxation' style massage and the goal is to prepare, treat and maintain the athlete. It is geared towards athletes, although anyone who regularly works out in the gym or exercises will benefit from this.
Some of my more common massage clients are those who suffer back pains from a poor posture being sat down at a desk/PC or who stand up for long periods of time. I also help releif sciatic pains often caused by tight muscles putting uneccessary pressure on the sciatic nerve, causing pain and numbness.
Sports Massage can be broken down into 3 main groups...
Quick, energetic techniques are used to enhance an athlete’s warm up. This will increase circulation, stimulate the muscles and increase flexibility and range of motion. This reduces muscle p[ain and soreness and preps the athlete for their performance.
A more calming technique is used to aid muscles in returning to their natural state. This can also bring the athlete down from the adrenaline of performing. Circulation is increased to aid in elimination of toxins to prevent muscle soreness, fatigue and spasms.
This uses different techniques to aid an athlete throughout their training. Myofacial release, neuromuscular therapy, orthopaedic sports and PNF stretching all help to keep the athlete in top shape. Some techniques are used to aid during certain injuries as well.

Please Note: I perform Sports Massage in Manchester both at the Gym where I work, and also from my own home in my living room. The majority of my weekly bookings come from Gym-Basd Personal Training sessions and Online Personal Training sessions. As such this is a home set up rather than a typicaal massage parlour or clinical setting. Everything else is as standard for Sports Massage.
I will set up a massage table (with towels, oils, etc) in one of the Consultation Rooms at The Gym Group on Deansgate (M3 4EN). The room will be private with no interuptions during your massage.
More commonly they take place at my Home in Ancoats. Most people prefer this setting, with no interuptions (no one else there) or gym noise, a relaxing atmorphere and optional relaxing music.
Availability dependent on my Personal Training hours
What to expect in a typical Sports Massage...
I will meet you at the gym reception area, or the front of my apartment complex at the time of your appointment.
I will ask you to fill out short but basic health questionnaire that will highlight any injuries, aches or pains that you have, or any health conditions I will need to give you advice about before I begin your Sports Massage.
When ready, I will leave the room to allow you to change and position yourself on the massage table, with towels and head/face pillows. For full body and/or leg massages, please be sure to wear short shorts or short underwear to allow access to your upper thighs during the massage. For back only massages, please wear shorts or trousers you feel comfortable in.
Your Sports Massage will be themes around your requirements, and will of course target any problem areas you have mentioned. It is advised that you ideally do not drink alcohol for 24 hours following your massage or engage in a strenuous weights workout. I strongly recommend you drink plenty of water following your massage to help rid the body of toxins released into your lymphatic system.
Personal Trainer & Nutrition Specialist
You will benefit from over 13 years experience as a Personal Trainer & Nutrition Specialist. This means during your massage Ben will be in a unique position to offer you additional advice and support with any issues you are experiencing, and advise the best exercises you can do at home or at the gym to help correct or prevent any issues you are having.
You're also welcome to a Posture & Flexibility Assessment with additional advice on Nutrition Interventions where you'll discover how certain vitamins, minerals, amino acids and more that you should bet getting from your diet can play a key role in preventing aches and pains.
Examples of common issues include muscle soreness, muscle tightness, sciatic and nerve pains, joint pains, slow muscle heeling, regular cramping, brusing easily and many others, are often strongly linked to nutrition, and others relating to poor posture or and poor daily habits.
