Sports Massage Therapy
Sports Massage is for everyone not just athletes.
We at BTST help patients of all ages, physical abilities and backgrounds to work towards better physical wellness through targeted sports massage therapies and complementary interventions.
Some of our patients have injuries sustained through physical trauma or accidents. Others have sports injuries through intensive and repetitive physical activities and many have problems from years of working in sedentary desk jobs.
Whatever your reason for an appointment, our team of highly qualified and experienced professionals will always deliver a professional sports massage treatment, helping you to overcome issues and see noticeable benefits, often from the very first treatment.
Holistic in approach, our practitioners will deliver a manual treatment integrated with rehabilitation work, designed to meet each patient’s needs.
For your initial and following appointments, our therapists will carry out a private and individual consultation to assess your individual needs to ensure a bespoke treatment

How does sports massage therapy work?
The core element of sports massage therapy is the expert massage treatment itself which is tailored to the individual’s needs and the type of soft tissue in focus. Sports massage therapy focuses on all soft tissues that are used in physical activity, including muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and even skin. The massage corrects any imbalances or issues that have occurred through strenuous and repetitive activity, injury or even sustained periods of inactivity.
Sports massage is recognised as being one of the first methods of physical therapy and its use dates back more than 3,000 years with records showing its application in Greece, India and China. Modern sports massage therapy in the UK is a growing field, but it has been widely accepted and valued in the USA, Canada and Australia for some years and used heavily by professional athletes to aid recovery, improve performance and prevent injury.
Working with individual athletes
We provide targeted sports massage therapy services in Nottingham to athletes of all ages, from juniors through to masters. We have patients who perform regularly in sports and fitness endeavours as diverse as bodybuilding, CrossFit and martial arts through to distance running, cycling, gymnastics, athletics and boxing. Whatever your sport, discipline or objective, our team can help you to remain physically well, to perform at your best and to prepare your body to achieve new goals.
Working with teams
Our sports massage therapy team can also work with sports teams across the county from junior to a professional level. Treatment for those involved in rugby, football, netball, swimming, athletic and other team sports can help athletes to reach their full potential. We will work individually with athletes to treat specific issues or injuries or provide group training and workshops in areas such as injury prevention, muscle taping, muscular strength optimisation, anatomy or any other areas that teams require to perform at their best.
Working with children
We also offer specialist sports massage therapies to children and teenagers who are experiencing physical complaints that are typically related to gait abnormalities. Our sports massage therapy Nottingham wide can help to complement medical practices that are designed to counteract these issues, supporting and strengthening soft tissues as they develop and strengthen with targeted exercises. We are adept at helping younger patients to feel confident, relaxed and positive about their treatment and have plenty of experience in putting children (and their parents!) at ease in our comfortable, welcoming clinic.
