    Massimo was amazing! He takes the time to analyse the whole body to detect the source of the problem. He immediately pressed on the different tension points, and takes the time to do the deep massage! I really recommend his professionalism and expertise. I could feel the effects as soon as the massage was over. Thank you!

    I decided to get a sports massage kind of ad-hoc after seeing lots of positive reviews, and I'm glad I did because it turned out to be the best decision of the day. Massimo is extremely welcoming and knowledgeable - I got to learn a bit about muscles and what I need to improve going forward so that I minimize the chance of injury at the gym. Overall a superb experience - I'll definitely be back for more sessions.

  • Massimo is very knowledgeable and systematic in his treatment approach, looking to solve the cause of the issue and not just the symptoms. I have been seeing him for a number of issues stemming from various injuries that have built up over time. I have had immediate relief from pain after every session and improved mobility and form due to his treatments. I frequently recommend him to friends and family who require physiotherapy and related treatment.

    My partner has been a regular at Massimo's and always speaks very highly of him so when I had an issue with pins and needles and pain in my fingers and hand, he was my first point of call. He did a detailed assessment from my neck down my spine and all the way along the arm to my fingers. He cleared any knots I had and meticulously worked through it all. He also recommended follow-up exercises and treatments. I came out really feeling the difference and a day later, everything feels so much better.

    I have acquired a number of injuries through a series of sporting pursuits that cause lower back pain and muscle fatigue. In seeking treatment I have been to number of clinics but not one of them has been as good as Mr Salus Sporting Lab. Massimo is a genuine expert and gives the best sports massage I have ever experienced. I would wholeheartedly recommend him and now see him on a frequent basis.

Our Tailored Sports Therapy

Choose one of our innovative treatments for a tailored solution to your Sports Injury or Medical Condition!

Headache and Migraine Treatment

Despite headaches and migraines being multifactorial medical conditions, most of the time they are the consequences of excessive tension not only on the upper shoulder and neck muscles but on mimic muscles too.

In our Sports Clinic, we have developed a special treatment to target specifically not only the neck and shoulder muscles but the mimic muscle too.

Thanks to a particular technique called diacutaneous fibrolysis, our Sports Physiotherapists, using special tools, will be able to treat the smallest mimic muscles and their connections where the tendons attach to the head’s bones.

Hip Flexibility Improvement

The hip flexibility improvement treatment has been designed to enhance the hip’s range of motion focusing and its flexibility.

This treatment focus on all the hip’s muscles to improve its biomechanics characteristic.

The improvement of hip flexibility and range of motion is very important to improve general body posture and sports performance as it is a key factor in the development of our body’s motor coordination.

We perform this treatment by combining sports therapist expertise and high-tech equipment.

Feet Care Treatment

An innovative treatment for the health of your feet has been developed in this sports clinic with the aim of solving as many problems as possible related to the foot.

Thanks to the combined use of feet pressure scan (high-tech gait analysis system ), Diacutaneous Fibrinolysis, and advanced massage techniques, this new treatment protocol is able to solve many foot issues such as:

  1. Plantar fasciitis.

Frequently Asked Questions

What treatment should I choose if I did not fix my sports injury with physio exercises?

If you were not able to cure your muscle injury or musculoskeletal issue with the classic physiotherapy exercises, we can help you with our specific injury rehabilitation treatment.

We have designed this alternative injury rehabilitation protocol, to treat and cure the underlying causes of your muscle injury or musculoskeletal condition.

Most of the time, muscle weakness is not the main or unique cause of muscle injury or joint pain, for example. There could be other conditions, such as adhesions, tendon calcification, or scar tissue, that can be the main cause of muscle and joint pain.

Our sports injury rehabilitation treatment is going to treat these underlying causes to have a short-term beneficial effect on the musculoskeletal system affected by the injury.

Physio exercise can be added to our injury rehabilitation plan, to have a long-term beneficial effect, in the case muscle weakness is one of the causes of sports injury.

Can my body's posture cause a recurrent muscle injury?

Yes, the body’s posture, most of the time, is the most important underlying cause of recurrent sports injury.

The body’s posture imbalances can determine an unequal distribution of forces on particular musculoskeletal structures. This can create excessive stress causing recurrent inflammation of tendons, muscles, and joints.

For example, flat feet can be the main cause of plantar fasciitis as can increase the peak of forces acting on the sole of the foot, activating the inflammation.

How can I prevent building new muscle tension?

The best practice to reduce building new muscle tension is to put in place a prevention plan rather than cure the muscle stiffness when it produces muscle pain.

We advise our patients to follow this muscle injury prevention plan:

  1. Do regular stretching exercises.
  2. Balance the workout session with adequate periods of rest.
  3. Balance strengthening exercises with flexibility exercises.
  4. Get a sports therapy such as a Sports Massage before getting muscle pain.

What is the difference between Sports Massage and Deep Tissue Massage?

There are two main differences between sports massage and deep tissue massage such as:

  1. Massage Therapist qualification.
  2. Massage techniques.

Firstly, a massage therapist that can provide a sports massage has more knowledge and professional qualification than a massage therapist with the first level of soft tissue manipulation. To become a Sports Massage Therapist, one needs to get a specific course of study divided into three different levels of qualifications. The course of study can last between 1 to 3 years.

Secondly, sports massage utilizes more advanced massage techniques than deep tissue massage. Despite both types of massage therapy acting on the deeper layers of muscles and fascias, sports massage is a more thorough treatment of every single muscle of the area affected by muscle stiffness or muscle injury.

Can Sports Massage reduce the chances of getting a sports injury?

Yes, Sports Massage is one of the best sports therapy treatments to prevent any type of sports injury such as muscle strains, muscle tears, tendon tears, and general muscle stiffness.

Sports Massage, by treating muscle stiffness and tissue adhesions can improve the biomechanics of our musculoskeletal system such as muscle flexibility and joint mobility.

Increasing muscle flexibility and joint mobility is a key factor to reduce the chances of muscle injury as they can support better any type of mechanical stress and forces acting on them.

How often should I get a Sports Massage for muscle injury prevention?

This is a common question the athletes ask their sports massage therapist in order to set up a prevention plan to reduce the chances to get sports injuries such as muscle tear, muscle strain, or simple excessive muscle stiffness.

The average to get a sports massage depends on the amount of work out and the lifestyle/job of the people: the frequency can be from once a week for professional and semi-professional athletes until 4-6 weeks for nonprofessional athletes and sedentary people.


How many sports massages do I need to prepare for a running Marathon?

In our Sports Clinic in London, our sports massage therapists agreed to a specific sports massage plan created specifically for the preparation of a Marathon competition. Our sports massage plan consists of four sports massages that are planned before and after the Marathon as explained below:

  1. First Sports Massage: After the first month of Marathon training.
  2. Second Sports Massage: After the second month of Marathon training.
  3. Third Sports Massage: six days before the Marathon.
  4. fourth Sports Massage: 7-14 days after the Marathon.

How often should I get a sports massage to prepare for an Ironman Triathlon?

The Ironman Triathlon is the longest of the Triathlon races organized by the World Triathlon Corporation.

As It consists of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride, and a Marathon 26.22-mile run, it is a very challenging competition that needs a lot of attention during its preparation. 

In our Sports Clinic in London, we have designed a specific sports massage plan consisting of five sports massages that are planned before and after the Ironman Triathlon as explained below:

  1. First Sports Massage: After the first month of Ironman training.
  2. Second Sports Massage: After the second month of Ironman training.
  3. Third Sports Massage: 14 days before the Ironman race.
  4. Fourth Sports Massage: 7 days before the Ironman Triathlon.
  5. Fifth Sports Massage: 14 days after the Ironman Triathlon.

Is there a more advanced sports therapy than Sports Massage?

Sports massage is a very efficient sports therapy that is valid both for prevention and injury rehabilitation, but, in some cases, such as scar tissue, adhesions, and calcification we advise our patients to get another kind of treatment.

In our Sports Clinic in London, we have designed a treatment that combines Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) and Sports Massage Technique. We have called it Instrument Assisted Sports Massage.


Can I get a sports massage before a sports competition?

Yes, getting a sports massage is absolutely fine and very useful!

Getting a sports massage before a sports competition is good to reduce muscle stiffness, and muscle soreness, improve muscle flexibility, and joint mobility, and ultimately improve sports performance!

Depending on the athletes’ condition, we suggest getting a sports massage 7-10 days or 4-5 days before the sports competition.

Is sports massage suitable for elderly people too?

Yes, sports massage is suitable for elderly people too!

Very often, sports massage is labeled as a sports treatment only for athletes, and described as a traumatizing massage treatment with pain for one or two days afterward.

Sports massage should be performed in a way to not traumatize the muscle to the point of inducing pain for 1 or 2 days after the treatment. If the sports massage is performed properly, the patient will get an immediate sensation of improved mobility and muscle flexibility.

Of course, when a sports massage is performed for an elderly person, the pressure and the techniques of the massage should be tailored to the patient’s musculoskeletal condition.

What is a Trigger Point?

A Trigger Point (TP), also known as a myofascial trigger point, is a localized, sensitive area within a muscle or fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles) that can be painful when pressed or otherwise stimulated.

From the histopathological point of view, TP is characterized by the presence of muscle knots, which corresponds to a muscle fiber segment subjected to a strong contraction of its sarcomeres.

Shrinkage knots are microscopic formations that correspond to sites of spontaneous electrical activity in the neuromuscular junction, which is a specialized synapse of the motor neuron that innervates the muscle fiber.

The area or region of muscle fibers that contain knots of contraction constitutes the palpable painful muscle nodule.

Only some fibers of the affected muscle present this microscopic alteration. At the level of contraction nodes, sarcomeres present a strong contraction (shorter and wider) differing markedly from the sarcomeres of the normal muscle fibers of the same muscle.

The existence of muscle knots in an area affects the function of the entire muscle.

Trigger Points do not cause pain during normal activities. They are only painful with palpation.

They are activated by cold, heat, pressure changes
atmospheric, and repetitive damage.

The reason why a TP is formed in a certain moment and in a certain muscle is still unknown despite the many hypotheses issued.

However, multiple pathogenic factors have been found to trigger, predispose, or favor TPs which are fundamentally:

  1. Muscular stress: caused by excessive physical exercise of the muscles involved.
  2. Repetitive microtrauma.
  3. Acute musculoskeletal trauma: it can affect muscles, tendons, ligaments, or bursae (e.g. “whiplash cervical”).
  4. Accumulation of metabolic waste products in muscle tissues.
  5. Sudden cooling of the body or partial body areas: (Staying in front of a fan or air conditioning).
  6. Exhaustion or generalized fatigue: For example in the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
  7. Joint inflammations.
  8. Nerve injury.
  9. Poor Posture: Maintaining poor posture over time can create imbalances in muscle tension, leading to the development of TPs.
  10. Stress and Tension: Stress and emotional factors can contribute to muscle tension, leading to the formation of TPs.

Clinically, the patient manifests dull and heavy pain, the muscle feels tense, hypertonic, and contracted. 

The muscle is exhausted quickly and significantly decreases sports performance.

Treatment for trigger points may include physical therapy, sports massage therapy, myofascial release techniques, stretching exercises, and sometimes the use of heat therapy.
