Why should you choose a sports massage near you?
Finding a good sports massage near you can be challenging; sometimes, it can be worth travelling just that little bit further. But how far should you travel? Well, that depends on you, what you consider a fair distance for the type of relief and benefit that you will get from a sports massage.
Some of our clients will travel from London and others around an hour, while many are happier to travel 30-40mins. Even 30-40mins will give a large catchment for Nicky Snazell's Pain Relief Clinic, which is based on Stafford, but we service areas like Litchfield, Cannock, Rugeley and Uttoxeter.
If, however, you believe that you might have a sports injury, then please visit our sports injury page and contact us.

How long are you sore after a sports massage?
It will depend if you were exercising, the level of exercise you were performing, your age and your health. In most cases, recovery can range from 2-4 days, and this is normal. If you ran a marathon or raced, perhaps had a tough match, it could, of course, be longer.
Why does it hurt after a sports massage?
It can hurt after a sports massage as this is a more aggressive pressure around key muscles. It can make the surrounding tissue tender and enhance your aches for a shorter period. a sports massage is there to help release your muscles, tendons and joints to promote recovery and muscle conditioning. This process can all add to some soreness after a massage.
