Discover the power of Sports Massage


Sports Massage is a form of manual therapy, and includes deep tissue massage, soft tissue release and trigger point therapy. Some might find it uncomfortable, but it is very effective at restoring optimal muscle length and decreasing tension within muscle tissue.

Sports Massage not only benefits athletes but can help anyone. It can help individuals who experience aches and pains on a daily basis e.g from sitting at a desk all day, or driving long distances through to those who have physically demanding jobs. It can also help your mental wellbeing, as emotional stress and anxiety can often produce similar symptoms to that of a sportsperson.

Sports massage is as beneficial for everyday injuries as it is for sports-related ones. For many years Savva has worked with both elite athletes and the general public to help them deal with their aches, strains and more debilitating pains. He uses his professional training combined with many years of experience in sports massage to create a truly individually tailored treatment for each client.

When providing sports massage treatments, we will assess you to discover the cause of your pain or discomfort and then work with you to effect a positive change, which may happen straight away or over a number of sessions. How long it takes for each person to return to full health depends on a number of factors, so we don’t like to make any promises – sometimes a condition may improve straight away, while sometimes, it may require a number of sessions.

Sports massage can help with a wide range of sporting and everyday injuries, so whether you’re a sportsperson or member of the public, why not get in touch and see how Savva can help.

  • I came to Savva with an ongoing foot pain condition called Plantar Fascitis. He told me I had some imbalance in my hips which led to my right leg being shorter then the other. He worked on my foot, calf, hips and back. My legs are now level. He also sorted a tension in my shoulder. My foot is much better now. His warm personality helped me feel at ease.


  • As an elite athlete, I am generally tight and always sore. I found Savva to be such a profound professional sports massage therapist. He is very well educated and knowledgeable in his field of work. I would definitely recommend booking in with Savva if you are serious about sports massage therapy. A++

  • After my first sports massage with Savva, I found the treatment really effective as there was a significant improvement. Savva offers a very professional and thorough treatment, with precautions with regards to Covid. Savva asked all the right questions to understand my issues and made me feel very relaxed. Would highly recommend Savva.
