What is Sports & Remedial Massage Therapy?
Sports & Remedial Massage therapy is the practice of massage by accredited professionals to achieve positive health and well-being (physical, functional, and psychological outcomes) in clients. To compliment our physiotherapy treatments, The Body Group is pleased to announce that we shall now be offering a clinical therapeutic massage and sports massage service in our clinic in Hong Kong.
Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. The massage movements focus on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.
Sports and remedial massage therapy is gaining popularity as a useful component in a balanced training regimen. Sports massage therapy can be used as a means to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event. Specially designed sports massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares their body and mind for optimal performance.
Our sports and remedial massages in HK all derive from Swedish massage which uses a firm but gentle pressure to improve the circulation, ease muscle aches and tension, improve flexibility and create relaxation. The remedial massage treatments also combine elements of Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue Manipulation, Strain Counterstrain, and Structural Integration and Stretching.

Sports massage is designed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training.
Sports massage good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion, the therapist will generally focus on a problem area, i.e. a painful back, a pulled hamstring, or a sore shoulder, rather than giving a whole body.
Sports massage is a type of Remedial/Swedish massage that stimulates circulation of blood and lymph fluids. Some sports massage movements use trigger point therapy to break down adhesions (knots in the muscles) and increase range of motion.
A sports massage is a good choice if you have a specific problem -a tender knee from running, for instance. It is also be a good idea to see a movement therapist, who can help you identify and correct the movement pattern that might be causing your injury in the first place. Contact our therapists at The Body Group in HK for details on sports and remedial massage therapy.
Remedial massage is probably the most popular form of massage in Australia. A remedial massage focuses on the treatment of soft tissue injuries, aching muscles and postural imbalances using a variety of techniques. When overworked muscles become tight, knotted or damaged, remedial massage can provide a healing treatment that can be gentle or deep.
Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
Remedial Massage uses several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage and to support and speed up the body’s own repair mechanisms.
Key benefits of Remedial Massage include: the stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed; the calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort; and the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility. An improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension can also be experienced through therapeutic relaxation.
Muscular and skeletal dysfunctions often addressed with Remedial Massage include Fibrositis, Spondylitis, Arthritis, frozen shoulder, muscular cramps, Whiplash, muscular atrophy, sports and dancing injuries.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say how delighted I have been with your service. When I first came to see you some 4 weeks ago I could literally not walk more than 100m, was in constant pain and was feeling very glum.ChrisHong Kong
I had seen a number of other people previously at other establishments and none had made any progress. After 4 sessions with you I am now back swimming and walking and am very positive that we have this sciatica beat and that I will fully recover.
You worked magic and I am very appreciative.
