Sports Massage Therapy
Worthing, West Sussex
Welcome to S.J.A
Sports Massage Therapy
Mrs Sam J Austwick
BSc (Hons) Sports Therapist
I became interested in Sports Therapy from a young age. Following my passion, I studied a BSc (Hons) degree in Sports Therapy at The University of Chichester, graduating in 2011 with a 2:1 honours degree. Post-graduation I worked part time as a Sports Therapist and Fitness Instructor, where I treated a number of private clients. During this time, I also acted as the Sports Therapist for The Royal Artillery Rugby Club, based in Larkhill, Wiltshire.
As life has a tendency to split in different paths, relocating to Sussex meant I temporarily left Sports Therapy and instead worked within education whereby I supported children and young adults with special educational needs. However, during this period, I still provided Sports Therapy to a number of (very grateful!) family and friends. I am now so thankful and excited to be back practicing and can fulfil my true passion which is the joy of helping someone relieve their aches and pains!
Whilst I have helped many clients prepare for marathons and sporting competitions, I have also helped a number of people with stress related tension and muscle aches from sitting at a computer all day. I truly believe that sports massage can aid anyone, not just sports enthusiasts. I have had tremendous results with very happy customers who have chosen to see me for various reasons.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information, or make a booking today by contacting me here.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Commonly Treated Injuries/Aches/Pains
Please see below for examples:
Ankle and foot pain
Such as the injury, 'Plantar Fasciitis'
which is a term given to a person who is experiencing pain on the sole of the foot. Plantar Fasciitis usually develops as a result of a tight calf and rigid foot.
Sports massage therapy can restore muscle flexibility and as a result increase joint mobility helping resolve the issue.
Many patients experience pain in their back, buttock and down their leg. This is often given the term, 'Sciatica'. This pain usually originates in the nerves of the lower back. The symptoms of which can be relieved through massage therapy and strengthening exercises of the core.
Neck and shoulder pain
For example, the injury known as 'Shoulder impingement syndrome'
is caused by the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles becoming impinged as they pass through a narrow bony space called the subacromial space. With repetitive pinching, the tendons become irritated and inflamed. Sports massage therapy can be used to help relax any tight muscles, such as the rotator cuff and upper back muscles.
Stress and tension headaches
Tension headaches typically develop because of tightness in the upper back and neck muscles. Sports massage therapy focuses on improving the mobility of the upper back which takes the tension off of the muscles.
Hip and knee pain
Most hip and knee problems are a result of poor alignment which results in misuse. It is very important to observe joint alignment and ensure all the muscles are working as they should.
