Sports Masseur

Claire Hughes

I have been a part of the beauty therapy industry for almost eight years, and during that time I have amassed a great amount of experience in
therapeutic and sports massage, as well as the many beauty treatments St. Georges offers, such as eyelash treatments and waxing. I am especially
passionate about the benefits of sports massage and it is incredibly fulfilling to see the results of my clients as they progress to being fully fit again. Sports massage is an effective and beneficial treatment for reducing muscle pain and tension, increasing range of movement, improving scar tissue, and speeding up muscle recovery.Sports massage is aimed at athletes and those that partake in regular exercise. It works by deeply manipulating the soft tissues of the body, realigning the muscle fibres and connective tissue and can also help to flush away toxins from the body.

Regular sports massage can increase joint mobility and flexibility reducing the risk of injury during sport and exercise whilst also helping to recover. It can also be used to prepare the body for a sporting event to enhance performance.
