Sports massage to ease training aches and pains
Sports massage is a great way to keep your body in tip-top condition while you are training. Fitness training, whether as preparation for running a marathon or just to keep fit, can take its toll on your body.
Regular massage treatments will help you to minimise or avoid common injuries, such as:
- Strained muscles
- Stiffness in muscles and joints
- Runner’s knee
- Achilles tendonitis
- Iliotibial Band (ITB) issues
Aids mobility and enhances strength
Sports massage also aids mobility, increases your energy levels and often improves the rate at which your body recovers from injury and illness. Many athletes use massage to enhance their strength, performance and speed, as it helps to remove toxins and lactic acid after you’ve exercised.
Sports massage treatments
Clarice Fitness offers full body sports massage (usually lasting an hour), deep tissue back massage or deep tissue leg and thigh massage (both usually 30 minutes each). If you require a longer treatment time, this is charged extra – please specify when booking so the time can be catered for.

Chair massage is a great alternative to full sports massage and focuses on your back, shoulders, neck and arms. It is a seated massage that doesn’t require massage oil and is carried out over your clothes.
Typically, chair massage is also relatively short – on average 15-30 minutes – but this can vary depending on your levels of stress and tension.
Even a quick session of chair massage can have beneficial effects. It makes you feel more energised, rejuvenated and relaxed.
The benefits of chair massage include:
- Reduces stress
- Encourages better posture
- Decreases anxiety and depression
