Frequently Asked Questions
HOW LONG WILL MY APPOINTMENT BE?
Appointments vary in length depending on what the client has requested. We offer appointments that can last 45 minutes, 60 minutes or 90 minutes.
DOES SPORTS MASSAGE HURT?
Prehabilitive sports massage is not painful as there are no underlying problems. Some of the techniques used in rehabilitive massage can be uncomfortable but should never be unbearable. A massage that causes you to tense up with pain would be counter-productive and pressure can be tailored accordingly.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
It all depends on the individual treatment however towels are always used to protect modesty and require underwear to always be worn. T-shirt and shorts can be worn if preferred.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A SPORTS MASSAGE?
You can see the benefits from sports massage with as little as 1 massage per month but for best results weekly or fortnightly is recommended. Ultimately you know your body the best, just ensure that you listen to what it tells you from a whisper, before it shouts!
