I get asked by a number of clients what is the difference between Sports and Remedial Massage?

My answer is that the same techniques are used in both Remedial and Sports Massage treatments.

Techniques can include;

  • Trigger point therapy
  • Friction
  • Effleurage
  • Tapotement,
  • Static stretching
  • Muscle energy techniques
  • Positional release
  • Myofascial release and many more.


every athletes has a specific goal they want to achieve from the massage treatment

The difference between the two is the goal of the massage for that athlete, for that event, in that sport and at that particular time. It does not matter if you are an elite athlete or weekend warrior or if you are are into health and fitness, all athletes can benefit from sports massage.triathlon bike

Every athletes has a specific goal they want to achieve from the massage treatment and it will be different for each athlete.

Some common goals of the massage can include enhanced athletic performance, recovery massage, rehabilitation massage, pre-event massage, during event massage, post-event massage.

Sports massage is therefore specific for each athlete based on their requirements.

The best way to think about this is a swimmer will require a different massage treatment compared to a runner or compared to a body builder for example.

Depending on what phase the athlete is in and this includes base training, specific preparation phase or competition phase  the amount of pressure and the techniques used will can also vary. It would be counter productive if the athlete was sore when they went to compete because too much pressure was used in the massage.

Sports massage is therefore specific for each athlete based on their requirements.

This is why the athlete requires a very experienced massage therapist to deliver their massage treatment so they can achieve the desired outcome, which for all athletes is to increase their athletic performance and prevent injuries.

I work with a vast amount of athletes that vary in all abilities. With over 10,000 hours of massage experience and being an elite athlete myself I always deliver what the athlete needs.
