Sports massage (sometimes called deep tissue or remedial massage) is a robust style of treatment not just for sports people. It is very effective at relieving the muscular tension that many people carry as a result of stress or activities of daily living like using the computer or driving as well as strenuous sporting activity.
Adam has been providing sports massage to clients in Nottingham for over 10 years. He originally trained as a Sports Massage Therapist before becoming an osteopath and he applies the basic principles of deep tissue massage in many of his osteopathic treatments.
Many of Adam’s clients have an intuitive understanding that they need a good deep tissue massage to maintain good musculoskeletal function but might not fully understand why such tension has built up. Treatments are therefore based on a thorough case history and physical assessment so they can be tailored to the individual client. Sports massage sessions will typically include stretching and joint mobilisation techniques for maximum benefit as well as self care advice. Common sites include the upper back and shoulders and legs particularly hamstrings and calves.
Adam’s membership and insurance supersede any requirement to be a member of the Sports Massage Association. This is because his training and duty of care to his patients as an Osteopath is higher than that of a sports massage therapist.

Sports Massage Testimonials
“I visited Adam for sports massage at the Lace Market Clinic in Nottingham after damaging my bicep. I found my assessment appointment with Adam both informative & reassuring. As with any active person it’s comforting to be told your ailment can be cured. I was finding the limiting effects of my injury frustrating.”
