Sports Massage in Durham

Sports Massage is a deep tissue massage that helps aid the recovery of the soft tissues of your body including muscles, ligaments and tendons, which means that anyone experiencing pain or discomfort can benefit from a sports massage – you do not have to be an athlete or take part in sports.

Many office workers, manual workers and those who like gardening, walking, jogging and many other pastimes can benefit from massage. These types of activities have regular and repetitive actions or motions which can lead to problems.

For example, sitting for long periods or lifting heavy objects all day can result in back pain, muscle strains or stiffness which a sports massage can relieve, and assist with rehabilitation.

  • Have you injured your hamstring playing football?
  • Is your back hurting after lifting weights?
  • Did you pull on your shoulder swinging a racquet?
  • Are you feeling the strain from sitting at a desk all day?
  • Maybe your shoulders feel tight after a busy week and you just need to relax?

NIHP Durham can tailor your deep tissue massage to aid your recovery as quickly as possible, and get you back to what’s more important.

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 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 to maintain suppleness and keep little niggles at bay. I would strongly recommend NIHP to anyone that plays sports or has joint/ muscle pain on a regular basis.
