Virgin London Marathon 2012 – Finding the best sports massage therapy in London


If you’ve been training for the Virgin London Marathon you’ll probably be feeling like a sports and remedial massage is a good idea. Your muscles might be feeling heavy and tight, and your legs and shoulders probably ache. It’s important to prevent sports injuries occurring and deep tissue massage can be vital in maintaining a pre-event balance.

You might have heard about shin splints, Achilles tendonitis, tight calf muscles, and torn hamstrings. It’s enough to make you loose sleep! But the last thing your mind and body need are worry. Stress consumes calories, strips your body of much needed vitamins, and erodes your confidence and well being. Maintaining a balance means looking after mind and body, allowing you to focus on keeping your marathon running training schedule tight. It’s tempting to overtrain, and this is often the reason for frustrating, last-minute sports injuries, especially seen in the run up to the London marathon.

City Sports Massage have an international reputation in using specialist massage therapy to treat sports injuries and stress. We work with our clients as a team – giving and receiving feedback throughout sessions to pinpoint areas that need attention. By listening closely and working efficiently we help our clients maintain a healthy, balanced mind and body – which is why we receive recommendations from marathon and ultra-marathon runners who’ve run the Chicago, Paris, Berlin, New York and Boston marathons.

We operate from multiple Central London locations and our massage therapists work seven-days-a-week to keep London Marathon runners happy!
