Is Sports Massage for me?

Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just sports professionals who benefit from massage therapies. You do not need to be a top Newcastle athlete to benefit from a Newcastle sports massage!

Sports massage is effective for treating injuries, pain or restricted range of motion; issues that can just as easily arise undertaking amateur sports and exercise, and can be just as debilitating and detrimental to general health and wellbeing (as is anything which stops people from taking regular exercise). It is excellent for helping to treat both chronic and acute issues, focusing on treating both the cause and the resulting symptoms for the most efficient recovery.

Sports massage is also highly effective at maintaining joint range of motion, muscle tightness and relieving the effects of repetitive training activity. Our Newcastle Sports Massage can: 

  • Enhance Performance
  • Correct Posture
  • Improve Sleep
  • Faster Recovery
  • Alleviate Pain
  • Speed Up Healing
  • Prevent Injury
  • Rehabilitate Injury
  • Release Knots and Tension
  • Relaxation and Stress Relief

Deep Tissue Massage

As well as sports massage, we offer offer a range of other therapeutic treatments including deep tissue massage.

Deep tissue massage involves the manipulation of the deep layers of supporting tissues that make up the muscles and joints.

Most deep tissue massages normally focus on major muscle groups, such as the neck or lower back, along with joints and tendons. It’s particularly applied to areas that tend to tense up in times of stress, such as shoulders, neck and hips.

This deep manipulation stimulates blood flow and relieves muscle tension, while simultaneously lowering stress hormones like cortisol and releasing “happy hormones” such as serotonin and oxytocin.

Soft Tissue Massage

The key aims of soft tissue massage are to prevent pain, improve range of motion, spinal adjustments, aid muscle recovery, and generally enhance physical functions.

Improved Flexibility – Soft tissue massage helps to improve overall flexibility and lower the chances of having muscle injury. It involves stretching the muscle fibres, promoting flexibility and maintaining it.

Reduced Pain – An effective way to relieve muscular pain, whether from injury or overwork, soft tissue massage helps you deal with pain effectively and be able to perform your tasks better.

Improved Circulation – Good circulation enhances your performance levels. It has a great impact not only in blood circulation but also in lymphatic circulation, which means better removal of waste, more oxygen and an increased food supply.

Decreased Tension – Sometimes stress can get the better of you, making relaxing difficult – so muscle relaxation is important. With regular soft tissue massage, you can easily learn to relax your mind and body.

Improved Sleep – Soft tissue massage can help improve your sleep patterns. This form of massage reduces that tension, promoting deeper, longer sleep.

Improve Performance

When it comes to sport, there are very few of us who are not competitive. No matter what the sport – and no matter at what level we participate – we all want to perform to our very best.

Incorporating a regular sports massage into your training regime brings very real benefits. Not only does it help improve your overall performance; it also reduces the risk of injuries developing.

Sports massage can release tension as a result of training (or other lifestyle factors), improve circulation and range of motion, as well as reduce recovery time.


Once you have run your race, played your match, or finished your work-out, it’s important for your body to properly recover – and that’s where sports massage can really help.

In the hands of our skilled practitioners, post-exercise sports massage helps by stimulating your blood flow, which leads to greater tissue permeability and speeds the healing of soft tissue.

This type of massage helps reduce muscle soreness and allows your muscular system to heal more efficiently.


Sports Massage is also an effective form of ‘prehabilitation’, preventing physical training and repetitive movement becoming injury by releasing tension before it impacts movement.

At Gosforth Physio & Wellness each massage session is unique and tailored to your individual requirements, and any queries or concerns you may have regarding your symptoms will be discussed during the initial assessment.

We constantly strive to help recovery, enhance performance and aid injury prevention, using a variety of techniques derived from various bodywork styles.

Better by 5

Over 90% of our patients get ‘Better by 5’ sessions.

If you need any of our physiotherapy, sports injury, sports massage or acupuncture services, you should see and feel a real difference by the end of your fifth session.

If, on the other hand, there is no improvement in your clinical condition or in the way you feel – we STOP after the fifth session. At that point, we reassess the reasons why there has been no apparent improvement and, if necessary, we can organise scans and letters to GP's and Consultants. You can be sure that we will never continue treating you unless there is a positive benefit – and only when you (and we) agree on your treatment plan.
