What is Sports Massage?

Sports Massage is the term used to describe massage therapy for the positive benefits of all participants in any sport or activity. It can also help those suffering muscle stress from inactivity, such as long distance driving or computer work.

Through the manipulation and stretching of muscles and connective tissues, sports massage can help you achieve optimum performance.

It is stronger and deeper than most massages and is specific to parts of the body that are affected by stress or injury.

The benefits of sports massage

  • Reduces muscular tension, stress and fatigue
  • Improves flexibility and suppleness
  • Improves responsiveness of muscles and joints
  • Improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow
  • Rehabilitates soft tissue after injuries or over-use
  • Helps with mental and physical relaxation

About Janine

Image: Janine Sharpe, sports massage Derbyshire, based in Youlgrave.  Massages in Rowsley, Bakewell, Buxton, Matlock, Darley Dale Ashbourne Derbyshire Peak District.Qualifications

I have a Level 4 SPS Diploma in Sports Massage. I qualified in July 2008 having spent six months gaining practical experience and studying at Nottingham University.

Level 4 is the highest level of qualification attainable in Sports Massage and is the level required for membership of the Sports Massage Association. As a member of this professional organisation I am required to regularly attend seminars and tutorials to help keep my knowledge and practical skills up to date with the latest developments. The Sports Massage Association is the only organisation recognised by the International Olympic Association.

I have full professional insurance and, unlike some practitioners, I am fully covered for all treatments. I also have an appropriate first aid qualification.

All in all you can be assured that you are in good hands!


As a former rugby player for, amongst others, London Welsh Ladies, I have a strong appreciation of the physical demands of sporting performance on the muscles. This knowledge is fundamental to my ability to maintain an athlete’s muscular well being.

I have now retired from rugby and train as a recreational tri-athlete, last year completing the Salford Olympic Triathlon.
