Sports Massage

How long does a massage treatment last?

30 minute
45 minute

What do I have to wear for a massage treatment?


It would be wise to wear clothing you easily remove or are happy for myself to adjust - so I can massage the areas you wish without disrupting the fluidity of the massage.

For example:

1) For back massages - anyone who wears a bra - please wear a bra with the attachment at the back as I will be able to unclip and re-attach with your permisson.

2) For Lower body (legs) - anyone requiring this please wear underwear that are not in the style of boxers. If you feel more comfortable then do wear boxers / hot pants and I will adjust them with your permission to a position that will allow me to perform the massage on the relevant areas.

Any other requirements please let me know asap and I will be able to do what I can to accomodate your needs.




What oils do you use?


I mainly use an Almond Oil or Argan Oil.

If you are allergic to these or to anything let me know in advance.

I will let you know of the oil I will use.




Can I bring my own oil?


Yes you can of course - bring it with you and I will use your oil.

I will not use oils you have made yourself at home - only oils bought from shops.




Can I train after a massage treatment?


Yes you can if you have a pre-sport massage or after a normal treatment - low level cardio will be ok. Becareful as always as your body may feel different and relaxed - if you feel like you need to stop - then stop.




What do you recommend doing after massage to relax?


Some of the things which will be good to do is:

1) A nice warm bath or shower to help the muscles relax even more.

2) Add some epsom salts (if your ok with it) to help relax in the bath.

4) After the bath or shower - then do your stretching as you will be more relaxed.

3) At your home - all clients do not require membership. We can use your own equipment or my own. Some of my clients have their own personal gyms which we use.

4) Combination of all the above - so client getting a Pure gym membership aswell as performing sessions there, outdoors or at their home - dependant on their needs.

You can train as much as you like.

I would recommend a minimum of 2 sessions a week to get more out of your sessions.

Once you feel good with 2x a week then you can progress it to 3 if you so wish.

I cant make the same session each week are you flexible?


We understand that people lead busy lives and need to be flexible.

You wont have to stick to the same time each week. We have clients who we arrange sessions weekly with.

Note: Evenings are very busy and times to book may get difficult so book in advance.

A session lasts 60 minutes.




How many times a week do you recommend on training?


I would recommend training at least 2-3x a week.

Anything less will take you alot longer to reach your reach your goals if you are not doing anything alse along side working out.

I have clients who train with me 2-3x week and go out running or partake in sports aswell who are getting better results.

2x a wek training = 8 sessions or 8 hours training a month.
3x a week training = 12 sessions or 12 hours training a month.
