A sports massage is an effective treatment to reduce aches, pains, and the ill-effects of injuries, whether from sport or other activities. It is ideal for anyone who is suffering from day-to-day pains and can even be used to reduce the tension and stress of modern day life.
At Kensington Physio, we are a dedicated, professional and compassionate team who listen to each of our clients in order to create the best massage experience.
What is remedial and sports massage?
Remedial and sports massage are scientific therapies that have been developed to use a variety of different massage techniques, together with specific deep tissue approaches to work the body’s soft tissues, muscles, tendons, and fascia.
As the massage encourages deep and soft tissue release, it is beneficial for everyone – you do not have to be a sportsperson to see a range of positive outcomes.

Client reviews ‘A real professional manner’
Amazing Aaron – Sports Rehab Massage
Booked an appointment to see Aaron about a rather unstable knee. He quickly diagnosed it as plantar fasciitis in the opposite foot. He worked on the misbehaving muscle and also worked up into the calf which was also contributing to the issue. I left feeling real relief, strapped and armed with exercises to aid improvement and recovery.
Aaron really knows his stuff and works in a really professional manner putting you at ease super quickly.

Professional and compassionate sports massage
“I recently visited the Kensington Physio Clinic following a long trip from Australia. I suffer from multiple and complex muscular skeletal problems as well as Fibromyalgia. I received an excellent remedial massage from Ian Evans who knew exactly the trigger points that needed attention to relieve my pain. His professional and compassionate approach meant I was able to continue my holiday in comfort. I could recommend Ian for any muscular skeletal problems”.
– Bernie Hollett
Is sports massage right for you?
Sports massages can be booked for a variety of reasons; many sportspeople have them before, after and during competitions and training to maintain their comfort and muscle performance, and even to prevent injuries occurring. It’s also ideal for anyone who is feeling sore and tired in certain areas.
If any of the following applies, now may be the right time to try an appointment with us:
- You work out casually or are an elite sportsperson in training
- You work in an office and suffer from stress and tension e.g. neck, back, shoulder pain/aches, migraines
- You are experiencing muscle soreness and are feeling tired and stiff
- You have a soft tissue injury e.g. sprains, strains
- You are recovery post-surgery
If you are still unsure, our team are on hand to talk you through, when you call to make a massage appointment.
What are the benefits?
The main benefit most people consider is that of easing pain and promoting an efficient recovery from muscle damage or fatigue. However, this therapy can also help individuals manage stress and help cultivate a better state of well-being.
Key benefits include:
- Stimulating blood flow to remove toxins in the muscles
- Calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort
- Toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility
- Improving the health of cells and the repairing of tissues
- Easing stiffness and tension
A sports massage is also known to release endorphins which help relieve pain, reduce anxiety, and improve a person’s mood.
Our remedial massage services
Remedial massage is practised by a number of our professionals and sits within the specialism of sports therapy. It holistically treats the whole body and traces your discomfort back as far as possible to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
It is composed of specialised techniques aimed to:
- Locate and repair tissue damage
- To support and speed up the body’s own repair mechanisms.
During a massage of this type, our specialists will assess your whole body to find the root cause of your pain across your muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues. Once the source has been found, massage techniques can be used to rehabilitate the pain or injury, wherever it lies on the body.
Remedial massage is applied directly on the skin and can range in intensity, based on your needs and our physiotherapists diagnosis.
