Sports Massage Tickhill, Doncaster

In Doncaster Owen works from his home in Tickhill with people who lead a hectic lifestyle and who have built up lots of tension over the weeks and months. He also currently works closely with both professional and amateur athletes. He has worked with Fraer Morrow (British Champion weightlifting), Curtis Woodhouse (Professional boxer), Russell Downing and Graham Briggs (Professional Cyclists) as well as members of Team Manvers Triathlon Club and Kimberworth Striders, Doncaster A.C. amongst other South Yorkshire Running clubs.  The aim is to provide injury prevention through regular maintenance, release muscle tension and restore balance to the musculo-skeletal system.

Regular maintenance sessions may help athletes prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse. A constant build-up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments and tendons, as well as the muscles themselves. These muscle imbalances may develop and often go undiagnosed until they are serious enough to cause the athlete discomfort or impede performance.

A skilled massage therapist will be able to detect variations in the soft tissues and by using the correct techniques, help the athlete maintain a much healthier physical state. Sports massage should play an important part in the life of any sportsman or woman whether they are injured or not. Massage has a number of physical, physiological and psychological benefits;

· Treating postural deviations
· Relieving pain
· Deactivating trigger points
· Reducing stress and anxiety
· Improving performance generally
· Injury prevention
· Injury rehabilitation
· Increased well being
· Warming up and stimulating the body before a competition
· Relaxing and de-congesting the body after exertion
· Improving recovery between training and competition
· Restoring energy when fatigued

  1. I came to Owen over weight and not too fit (and nearly 50!) with a goal of doing the London marathon in 6 months; I wanted personal training and sports massage.
    In short Owen was outstanding. He has excellent knowledge (sports science degree at Loughborough helps) but more importantly, he can apply his knowledge and is intuitive in his delivery. I have had sports massage (both good and bad) before and I know an excellent session when I get one and Owen gave what was required consistently and in a professional way. I have recommended Owen to family and friends who all appreciated his skill. I can thoroughly recommend Owen James for both personal training and sports massage and without him I would not have achieved my goal ( I completed the london marathon 2012 in 3h58min)
