My biggest achievement was to complete the run without any major injury. This was possible thanks to Dr. Mohsin Khan, Sports Physiotherapist from H.E.A.L Institute. He ensured I get right treatment to recover well every day after running.

Ok! So my first time here. Love the atmosphere and the TEAM is great! Thank you for helping and supporting me to achieve my GOAL. Thank you so much!

It was an amazing comeback. Not because I ran but because I had to prove a point to myself that I can run. It was amazing because I was told I can't run anymore due to the issue in my left knee. It's amazing because you Shwetha Rao Warke believed that I can run. After 4 months of hibernation I did a 10k @60mins all thanks to Heal Thane
FAQs
Sports massage breaks down adhesions in the soft tissue, which often develop from overuse.
Overuse injuries are common in activities that create repetitive motion of joints and soft tissue.
Microtrauma can build in the muscle tissue, particularly in areas of weakness, which over time can develop into tightness and areas of tension.
Deep tissue massage techniques help to break down these areas of tension, bringing blood to the area and allowing the body to heal and repair?
Pretty much anybody! Regardless of where you are an elite athlete, mother of two or retired person everyone can benefit from a Sports Massage. Common conditions that respond well to treatment are:
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Upper and lower back pain
  • Tension headaches
  • Knee pain (runners knee)
  • Shoulder pain (swimmers shoulder)
  • Tight calves / hamstrings / ITB
  • RSI in forearms, hands and wrists
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfers elbow
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Whiplash
In an ideal world, we’d have massage every week to flush out all those microtraumas before they become niggles and keep the muscles in good condition. In reality however, and often down to time and cost, most people will visit a therapist when something starts to worry them.
More often than not, it takes a lot longer to treat a full-blown injury than an early niggle, so if you feel a problem brewing, book an appointment sooner rather than later.
Pre-event massage - Pre-event massage is just as you’d expect a massage in the lead up to a big race. Usually, this is a few days to a few hours ahead. Typically pre-event massage will be energising and not too deep to prepare your muscles and joints for the race ahead.
Post-event massage – Post event massage is often available after races to help you on the road to recovery. As well as treating niggles that may have flared up in the race, post-event massage will soothe and ease tired muscles and help to prevent DOMS.
Maintenance massage – Regardless of your level of sport, maintenance massage is something to consider factoring into your training week. This type of massage helps to treat tissue structures that have become shortened, tight and painful and will help to improve performance and prevent injury.
The general rule of thumb is the amount of treatments you need is proportionate to the amount of time it’s taken to build up – if you’ve had years of bad posture that’s culminated in shoulder pain you will need more treatments than if you have a bad back from sleeping on a dodgy bed while on holiday. It varies from person to person and the process can be accelerated if you make changes in your day to day life (stretches, improving posture, etc). We usually say between four to six treatments close together to start, but you may need less or more depending on your individual situation.
This depends largely on your goals and training. Many athletes start out coming weekly and then space massages further apart as the initial muscle tension is reduced. When training for an event you may want to come weekly or fortnightly, but when training less only have one a once a month or every six weeks.
This really depends on you. We have some clients who prefer to weekly sessions, as they have difficulty doing enough stretching or other work on their own, or they have a lot of stress and/or are training very hard. With regard to massage for sports performance, when training for an event you may need to come weekly or fortnightly, but then when not training as hard, only once a month. As discussed above, it depends largely on your own individual situation, and it’s not set in stone: we can always increase or decrease frequency based on your needs at the time.
One massage is fine. We may recommend more than one, depending on your specific situation, but ultimately whether you want one massage or a series is completely up to you.
