Regular sports massage isn’t just for elite level athletes, it’s beneficial for everyone. As well as reducing the risk of injury, massage can help you train more often, increase flexibility, aid circulation and flush out toxins. Most importantly it helps you recover more quickly, so you can get more from your training programme. We offer an array of treatments - including an express 30 minute option - that are perfect for busy schedules. The onus here isn't relaxation, it’s performance enhancement, so as with everything we do at Transition Zone, expect to get results.
Remedial Sports Massage
Used to relieve the tension that can build up in muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. It’s the perfect aid for the prevention and healing of injuries, reducing soreness, and reducing blood pressure. It can also help prevent niggling injuries that often get in the way of performance.
Anti-Cellulite Leg Massage
Intense leg massage can actually improve blood circulation and help improve lymphatic drainage throughout the body, thereby releasing the stored fluids and toxins that accumulate in the fatty tissues and reducing those much maligned dimples and bumps.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
A specialised technique that stimulates the lymphatic vessels to remove waste products and lactic acid build-up. Akin to a detox from the inside out, the benefits are widespread, from promoting healing of ligaments and muscles to improving skin conditions and strengthening the immune system.
Deep Tissue Massage
When muscles are stressed they restrict blood flow, which limits the movement of oxygen and nutrients around the body; this causes muscle pain and build up of toxins. Deep tissue massage loosens tension, improves range of movement and helps circulation. It can also accelerate skin cell renewal, increase ability to absorb nutrients and vitamins, and enhance energy levels.

Physical therapy often includes massage as a tool but also uses a variety of additional techniques, including myofascial release, dry needling, ultrasound and active release. Therapists use their detailed anatomy and physiology understanding in order to manipulate soft tissue and bring the muscular skeletal system into alignment - whether the issue is due to age, pregnancy, injury or illness. Ideally you should aim to prevent the loss of mobility before it actually occurs, which is why if you play sports or exercise regularly, deep muscle therapy is vital. That way, not only will you get relief from tired and sore muscles, you’ll also reduce injury risk, improve your recovery time after workouts and make sure minor muscle pulls or strains don’t turn into something more serious. Your body intuitively knows where it should be, it sometimes just needs a helping hand.
