Sports Massage is used to help prevent and cure Sports Injuries, prepare the body for athletic activity, and maintain it in optimal condition.
Sports massage, and Sports Therapy in general, can help athletes recover from workouts or any other competition. It can reduce muscle pain, stiffness, and soreness produced by an intense workout or a simple hard workday.
Sports Massage helps to rehabilitate muscle or tendon pain, untie aching knots, and speed up the recovery time of an injury.
There are 4 types of sports massage: Pre-Event, Post-Event, Restorative, and Rehabilitative.
We advise getting a Sports Massage as a form of prevention to avoid or reduce the chances to get sports injuries.
We advise getting a Sports Massage 4-5 days before any kind of competition to improve your sports performance.
In fact, the primary objective behind a Restorative Sports Massage is to assist an athlete in reaching their personal best. This is possible thanks to the improved muscle elasticity after a sports massage treatment so athletes can train more intensely and frequently.
Sports Massage provides a wide range of physiological benefits to our body such as:
In this clinic, thanks to more than 17 years of experience in sports injuries, we have developed special sports massage techniques to solve very quickly sports injuries and recurring injuries.
These types of injuries originate from different causes, starting from the simplest soft tissue tension to the more complex ones of muscular and postural imbalances.
During the treatment Heat Therapy is applied to the muscles in order to warm them up. Heat Therapy increases muscle relaxation and patient’s pain threshould. For these reasons, It makes more effective the treatment of muscle stiffness and knots.
Thanks to our Special Therapy Coach, we can perform unique sports massage techniques, which allow us to get the heart of your issue.
Our innovative Sports Massage aims to treat not only the symptoms of your injury or muscle pain but to find to causes that have led to them!
We don’t treat only your trigger points, but we treat the entire muscle chains to solve all the possible causes of muscle imbalances and stiffness that have led you to the injury.
For example, a long-term injury depends on an underlying muscle issue alongside the muscle chain and not necessarily where there is the trigger point ( muscle pain ).
We strongly advise you to do Stretching for the following 5-7 days after the treatment, in order to maximize its efficacy, and we provide you with a perfect Visual Stretching Guide that is free content you can easily access on our website.
Our philosophy is that the treatment is never the same, not standardized but personalized techniques, for your best Sports Massage in London tailored to your needs.
The BEST in the business. I’ve been to see Mr Salus for years for marathon prep and injuries to migraines and beyond. He is the very best there is.
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.
Massimo is a really great at what he does, a really top professional,
One of the best in London to deal with any sports related injury! Extremely knowledgeable about all types of injury’s, and also get detailed about any underlying issues that could also be the cause, along with short and long term solutions 👍🏼 Great demeanour and care for your mind and body 👌🏼
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.
Massimo works wonders, I won't run a race without him massaging all the aches away beforehand. Perfect for getting race ready! And for general body maintenance.
