Sports Deep Tissue Massage in Durham

What is Sports & Deep Tissue Massage?

Sports Massage and Deep Tissue Massage promotes the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Anyone can benefit from a Deep Tissue Massage at the Northern Integrative Health Practice in Durham – you do not have to be an athlete.

Many office workers, manual workers and those who like gardening, walking, jogging and many other pastimes can benefit. Their regular and repetitive activity, such as sitting at a desk or lifting heavy objects all day can result in slight muscle strains or stiffness which a massage can relieve and assist recovery.


How can a Sports Massage help me?

The techniques used by the massage practitioners at the NIHP Durham have been developed to ensure effective and efficient results are gained from each massage given. Reported benefits may include:

  • Ease and relax tense muscles
  • Improve circulation and lymphatic flow
  • Increase muscle length/ tone

  • The conditioning/ training phase
  • Pre and Post competition
  • During competition
  • Post travel
  • Injury prevention

Sports Massage Testimonials

Muscle & Joint Problems

After more than a 20 year break from playing competitive badminton, I decided to pick up the sport again which is when I ran into numerous muscle and joint problems leading to a lot of pain and reduction in mobility. After the course of treatment Agnes performed I am so glad to say that I am back to my usual flexible self.

Even though the injuries have been resolved, my family and I still have regular Sports Massages from Agnes to maintain suppleness and keep little niggles at bay. I would strongly recommend Agnes and the NIHP to anyone that plays sports or has joint/ muscle pain on a regular basis.
