Sports Massage

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a practical massage treatment which stretches tight tissues, stimulates inactive muscles and improves soft tissue condition.  Sports massage enables you to move more freely and over time can improve overall posture. 

Sports massage is a popular treatment for athletes and all levels of sports people as it can help prevent injury, aid recovery and improve performance.  However it does not just have to be for sports people, being extremely beneficial for anyone with injuries, chronic pain or a restricted range of motion.

Remedial Therapy

Remedial Therapy

Remedial Therapy uses advanced soft tissue techniques which are aimed at facilitating a positive change to the muscles. Similar to Sports Massage, it is one of the most effective and readily available ways to prevent and treat muscle injuries, pain and soreness. 

Most pain is myofascial (soft tissue) in origin. Trigger points (sensitive points in muscles, which radiate or refer pain to various parts of the body) can mimic many conditions. Treatment employs massage techniques designed to treat both deep and superficial tissues.

Soft Tissue Release (STR) is a simple mechanical lock and stretch technique that is used to assess and stretch soft tissues.  STR targets specific areas of tension within a muscle.

Muscle Energy Technique (MET) is a technique used to release excessive muscular tension and restore normal length and elasticity, normalising joint motion.

Neuromuscular Technique (NMT) is used to reset reflex patterns, using trigger points as a gateway to the neuromuscular reflex system to effect a change, restoring the balance and tone of the muscle.

What My Clients Are Saying About Me

I’ve been going to Amy for a while now. I am in my 40s and have health problems and am not sporty or superfit. I have always found Amy competent, caring and patient, gauging what is needed for the individual and adjusting the strength of her massage accordingly. She listens and is very informed with an excellent understanding of not only her own subject and how the body works but other topics relevant to her work. She works quietly when I do not wish to talk or if I do, we have wonderfully interesting conversations! Amy’s massage is the best I’ve ever had because her technique and skill always ease the tension and stress out of my very tight muscles. It also lasts the longest and is a really lovely and relaxing experience every time. If you are thinking of trying sports massage, I recommend Amy wholeheartedly. Charlotte, March 2017.

We were first introduced to Amy by our osteopath who thought my husband Peter would benefit with regular massage treatment to help alleviate the constant ache in his neck and shoulders due to the pressure of his throat cancer.
Since her very first visit which has the convenience of being in our own home the tightness in Peter’s neck has improved immensely. Amy visits regularly and we both look forward to her lovely friendly manner, she brightens our day! Peter’s ENT consultant was puzzled for a while wondering why his cancer wasn’t progressing quite so rapidly as it was initially, when I explained about Amy’s sessions he was delighted in the difference it was making to his palliative care. She is a treasure to us. Marleen, March 2017.

I can highly recommend a massage by Amy. Although she specialises in Sports massage, it isn’t just for sports people. Sometimes, a deep tissue massage is called for, and Amy really knows her stuff. She will also come to your home at no extra charge. Amy is friendly and I always feel very comfortable with her.  Annie, February 2017.

I have received a series of 4 treatments from Amy which have already been of immense benefit. She has successfully targeted specific problems areas which have been of some concern to me for some considerable time. She is always able to recommend exercises between treatments that support the work that she has carried out so thoroughly. Already Amy has had a positive impact on my physical wellbeing. Thank you Amy.  Theresa, January 2017.

As a working and active person, I often feel the aches and stressors of modern living. For two years, massage sessions with Amy has not only aided in tension release, restorative balance and postural stress, but has also positively impacted my mental wellbeing. Right from the start Amy was brilliant, from contacting her through to taking the time to listen to my concerns over my body’s discomfort. Amy Knight Sports Massage provides a friendly, versatile and extremely helpful and professional experience, all within the comfort of your own home. Each session leaves my muscles soothed and energised and mind encouraged. I am very grateful for Amy’s continued generous advice, reliability and therapeutic relaxation. Laura, January 2017.

About Amy

As a keen sports person with a strong background in biological science I have always been fascinated by anatomy and physiology and fully understand the importance of correctly functioning muscles and keeping injuries at bay.

After gaining a BSc hons in Health Science and following acareer in biology I have since qualified with a Level 5 diploma in Clinical Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy with the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM) and I am also a member of The Institute of Sports and Remedial Massage.
