Sports Physiotherapy & Massage

What is Physiotherapy and Sports Massage?

We aim to promote wellness, mobility and independent function of your body systems, treating and preventing injury or illness with our Sports Massage.

Our Sports Massage in Nairobi helps to alleviate stress and tension that builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur due to overexertion and/or overuse, deep tissue massage can relieve the painful symptoms quickly and effectively.

Sports Massage can help prevent niggling injuries that get in the way of performance and achievement, whether you are an athlete, a regular recreational sportsperson or a once-a-week runner.
