Welcome to Blue Sky Sports Massage, I’m Louise and I am a Level 4 trained Sports and Deep Tissue remedial massage therapist iTEC qualified. Fully insured and registered with the Ctha – Complimentary therapies association.
I decided to become a Sports and deep tissue massage therapist as a way to help people with their muscle tension and help them feel better and free up movement. I can work from your scalp to the tip of your toes. Working from Litte Snoring just outside Fakenham, Norfolk.
Anyone can benefit from Sports Remedial Massage, it doesn’t need to be a Sport related issue. It doesn’t matter if your muscular aches and pains are due to injury training or day to day activities. It is beneficial to the treatment of soft tissue injuries and with muscular problems caused by driving / sitting at a desk, manual work / gardening or stress.
Sports massage deals directly with the body’s soft tissues, working on the muscles, tendons and fascia.
Sports and remedial massage is also often recommended after physiotherapy or chiropractic treatment in the rehabilitation of injuries. Treatment will be customised specifically for you. Tailored to your needs.
Mobile appointments available for treatment in the comfort of your own home.

A Sports Massage treatment is focused on specific areas of the body where we have pain & tension. Following a Postural Analysis a variety of massage and stretching techniques incorporating Swedish massage may be applied to work deeper into the areas of tension. This helps prevent injury, enhance performance and reduce stiffness, increase muscle elasticity and joint mobility. Should injury occur help with its treatment & rehabilitation. Including trigger point therapy which is a technique that addresses muscle knots which are sections of bunched up tissue. Knots can be from over use, poor posture, chronic pain, stress and other imbalances. Knots limit blood flow to the muscle and pull on the muscle, they can reduce movement. To address these areas pressure is applied directly on the knot for up to 2 minutes. This is like Reset for the muscle fibres. As pressure is applied, the surrounding area will be flooded with blood & promote better muscle fibre position as they release.
Deep tissue massage addresses stubborn stiff and sore areas. It promotes endorphin release and typically targets problem areas in the muscle or fascia ( a tough thick layer below the skin of connective tissue that separates layers and surrounding muscle.
Using a variety of myofascial release techniques that focus on gently stretching the fascia. These are the connective tissues surrounding muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the body. Myofascial massage techniques involve the therapist applying gentle forces in opposing directions, which relaxes the tissues. It can help ease pain and increase mobility in the tissues and surrounding muscles. Another benefit is reduction in scar tissue and reduction in the pain the scar can cause elsewhere in the body. This massage is done without oil can can be done on its own or before starting any of the above massage.
A Maintenance massage is a more general massage used for overall tightness, through the legs, back, shoulders, neck. The masseuse will work as she finds using a variety of massage techniques. It helps you keep going in your job or exercise, preventing injury and improving recovery, reduced stiffness. Flushing any toxins or lactic acid build up and improving circulation.
It is a far lighter style of massage and can be applied to the whole body to increase blood and lymphatic flow. Swedish massage uses techniques called effleurage, petrissage, kneading and tapotement or percussion. Relieving tension loosening up tight muscles caused by daily activities, stress and anxiety, decreased fatigue and increasing circulation. Creating a calming and balancing affect on the nervous system. Relax, Revive and Revitalise.
Remedial massage can be effective for muscular & joint pain to imbalance & weakness, over use and repetitive strain injuries and accidents. Conditions and problems which can benefit include:
If you are a new client I will need to take some details from you, talk about your general health to make sure massage is suitable for you and that you get the most effective treatment. Conduct a postural analysis before starting a treatment.
For the massage you will usually be asked to disrobe to your underwear, you could wear loose fitting shorts, however you will be covered by towels only exposing the part of the body being worked on.
How often you have a massage is your choice. Some people incorporate massage as part of their weekly training routine. Or find that a weekly massage helps with their stress levels. Others find that a maintenance massage treatment every few weeks or months works for them.
Children under the age of 18 should be accompanied by an adult.
