Deep Tissue Sports Massage in Manchester City Centre

Limited Availability

I am available for Deep Tissue Sports Massage in Manchester City Centre at  The Gym Group on Portland Street in Manchester City Centre (gym membership is not required for a sports massage). Please note that my availability may be limited as I primarily work full time Monday-Friday as a Personal Trainer at The Gym Group on Portland Street.

I also provide advanced posture assessments & corrective exercise solutions for improving posture and correcting muscle imbalances, and getting to the route cause of any aches & pains you may be experiencing.

You are welcome to book a Sports Massage on its own, but in many cases it is useful to have your posture assessed too to identify what is causing your aches and pains, and learn corrective exercise & stretch techniques you can do at home (and/or the gym) to resolve your aches and pains, as they will likely return through poor posture and incorrect exercise techniques.

What is a Deep Tissue Sports Massage?

Sports Injury

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.

Post Event

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.

Massage Get In Touch

Please get in touch before you purchase one of my Sports Massages. It will be very useful to know more about you, and what aches & pains you may have, and the reasons behind you booking your sports massage, and to find out how long you would like, and what area(s) you would like to focus on.

Step 2 - Payment

Once you have booked in for your Sports Massage and have a confirmed date and time, please kindly make payment in order to secure your Sports Massage appointment. Please make your payment straight away, as your appointment date and time will not be booked and secured until payment has been made.

If you need to change / reschedule, please let me know at least 24 hours in advance to avoid losing your booking fee.

If you do not turn up to your Sports Massage, you will lose your session fee and a refund will not be available.

Step 3 - Appointment

The location of your Sports Massage will be at The Gym Group on Portland Street (M1 4EH). Simply cross the road from Britannia Hotel, walking up New York Street. Take your first left, and you'll find the Gym Group Portland Street next to the BIMM Institute on Faulkner Street. Head up to the 2nd floor via the stairs or lift.

I will greet you at the gym reception area. If you have trouble finding The Gym Group, please phone me and I will come up and find you.

I will ask you to fill out a 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.

Optional: For any posture assessments we will start on the gym floor where I will perform a number of advanced posture assessents and advise you on corrective exercise techniques to help you with your aches, pains and posture imbalances.

I will take you to our Therapy Massage Room, where I will leave the room and allow you to prepare for your Sport Massage and make yourself comfortable. For full body / leg massages, please wear a pair of short shorts or short underwear to allow me to easily reach your upper thigh / upper hamstring areas. For back only massages, please wear elastic trousers or shorts you feel comfortable in.

Sports Massages are fully personalised to you and your requirements, so I will of course target any problem areas you have highlighted as been achy or painful. When dealing with aches & pains I do recommedn I take a look at your posture so I can advice on corrective exercises and stretching techniques to prevent you from experiencing aches and pains in the future.

Step 4 - Post Massage

I strongly recommend you drink plenty of water following your massage to help rid the body of toxins released into your lymphatic system.

Avoid any alcohol for 24 hours, as your body will already have many toxins that have been released that need to be flushed from your body. So don't be adding more with alcohol.

Wait until the next day before you exercise. Even though you will feel much looser and may want to exercise while your muscles are nice and lose, your muscles are in a recovery state following your massage, so it's far better to get a good quality nights sleep first to repair, rather than get even more DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) than usual.

In some cases, one single Sports Massage isn't enough, especially when trying to fix years of poor posture, or when dealing with injury rehabilitation. So I may sometimes recommend coming back for more massages, however I would wait 2-3 days before your next massage. Other times I might recommend others but less often, for example every fortnight or monthly.

I will more than likely also recommend specific exercises and stretches to do following your sports massage.
