Do you want the best sports massage in Edinburgh?
We are a clinic specialising in the relief of back pain and sciatica. But we’re all into sport. And so it was inevitable that we’d want to be known for having the best sports massage in Edinburgh, here in our own clinic. And we all make use of the service ourselves.
Do you have to be a competitive athlete? No.
Lots of our sports massage clients come from sporty backgrounds. But they may not be active sports people anymore. You might still like to think of yourself as sporty. But, if you’re like many of our clients, your competitive days are over. But you still have the aches and pains. And now they’re more persistent. Don’t worry, we can help.
What sports do we help?
Everything from golf, curling, through running, cycling, swimming, rugby, football. If you play it (or just watch it now), our therapists will provide you with the best sports massage in Edinburgh.
Massage for pain relief
Many of our clients use massage for pain relief. So that they can return to being active. Whether your pain is 2 out of 10, or 10 out of 10, massage can and does help. Our massage therapists also benefit from the “back-up” of some of Edinburgh’s best osteopaths.
More than sports massage
Consistently great sports massage
We know that consistency matters. We find that those wanting sports massage are particularly focused on the degree of firmness (see below). You want to know that every time you have a massage it will be a great massage. Whoever you see. That’s why – at Active X – we have developed systems and training to make sure that you always get what you want.
How firm do you like your sports massage?
We have a system of grading intensity. Tell us how firm you like your massage; on a scale of 1-10. Based on your feedback to the therapist, we’ll re-classify you on our 1-10 scale. That way, whichever of our therapists you see, we know how firm you like your massage.
Of course you can change that at any time. But, this ensures consistency.
Chat, silence, music with your massage?
You tell us whether you like silence, music, whales, to chat a bit or not at all.
You tell us what you want and our therapists will deliver. And this is all decided before you get here. Just fill in our online registration form before you turn up and it’s plain sailing after that.
This ensures we can have you “on the couch” for nearly all of your 50 minute appointment.
Edinburgh Massage Membership Plan
Massage is for life, not just for Christmas and birthdays. Your car gets an annual service. Your teeth twice a year. Yet you put a lot more miles on your body. Why not give it a monthly service? Our most popular package is monthly, but we can suit any budget from bi-monthly to weekly.
When your body goes wrong, it’ll cost you more than when your car goes wrong. Let us look after you. You may have only been looking for a back massage, but now you’ve found a whole new way of feeling great on a regular basis.
Massage is enjoyable. It’s a stress-buster. It eases your aches and pains. It’s time-out. Time for you. Go on, treat yourself!
Clinical backup for massage in Edinburgh
Our Clinical Director, Edinburgh osteopath Gavin Routledge, is at hand should you need further assessment, or specialist treatment.
After visiting Active X Backs today I can highly recommend them! I went in with shoulder pain and had an hour massage with Graham. I came away feeling relaxed, my muscles felt looser and relieved and I had much more movement in my neck and shoulder. The staff make you feel so welcome, relaxed and are really friendly. I would recommend them to anyone with sports injuries, back problems or anyone just wanting a relaxing massage. Thank you Active X Backs!
