Sports Massage generally applies to active individuals who suffer common muscle strains as a result of strenuous activity and need remedial massage therapy. However sports massage serves a number of other important purposes beyond the treatment of sports related ailments. It can play an important role in preventing injury as well as helping to enhance performance.
Keeping the flexibility in the muscles is just as important as the strength. Massage helps strip the muscle fibers of lactic acid and calcium build up!
Here are examples of some of the reasons why people enjoy receiving a sports massage at Alternative Body Works:
- Injury rehabilitation

The team at Alternative Body Works are a dream come true. Being a ‘Crossfitter’ I have been searching for a great remedial massage therapist for ages, but could never find someone who would really get into the ‘right spots’. I sit at a desk all day for work, so often suffer from extremely sore neck and shoulder muscles. The work Grace has done so far has improved my posture, and she always releases the tension. Thank You Grace and Alternative Body Works for always being so professional, lovely to deal with and relaxing. It is always a fantastic treat to have a session with you.

A new chapter in my life headed me to start up crossfit, which I really got into. The exercise was quick, strenuous and I was getting great results with my fitness. I was told by a few people that I always looked still and sore and was given a thought of treating yourself to a massage (which I had never thought of prior). I was handed Chantelle’s number and made a booking. My first session astonished me, all of my aching muscles soon relaxed and I was determined to get regular appointments to sooth the soreness. I have been back for regular massages and have also braved “dry needling” with Grace. Boy did that help. Thank you to the team at Alternative Body Works
One of my shoulder suffered a strain to the supraspinatus tendon which made doing my usual exercises difficult. I consulted a physio several times and started up a recovery program. Once I was back exercising my shoulder and back muscles became very tight and tense. At this time I was looking for a company to do proper sports massages for myself. I came across Alternative Body works at my gym and Catherine worked on my back and shoulder muscles. With the recovery plan from the physio and targeted sports massages from Alternative Body works I am back doing what I want in the gym and in the pool. My strained shoulder gives me little troubled now and the strength in both my arms feels balanced. I have found Alternative Body works and Catherine to be very professional in what they do and I have already recommended this company to my friends.
