If you are looking for Sports Massage with a qualified professional in Nottingham, you are in the right place.

The massage that I offer is tailored to your needs: if you need to address a specific complaint or injury, I will focus on that. If your need is for a more general body session to help release soft tissue, the massage is directed that way. No matter which specific issue you have, you know you’re getting a massage custom-built just for you.

At the beginning of the session I will ask you a few questions about your health and lifestyle, and I will perform a physical assessment: this involves postural evaluation and specific tests to address your issue. This will allow me to identify the cause of your issue and choose the best treatment according to your needs. 


I use multiple techniques to help release tension, relieve pain and improve mobility.  In some cases Sports Massage can be a bit aching, therefore, it is very important that you communicate with me during the massage. I will ask you for feedback so that I can choose the right pressure to use with you and understand in which condition your tissues are. I could also ask you to change position multiple times according to the issue I need to address. Communication will help me to identify if any inflammation is present or if there is any other issue that I should address.


If you want to know more about Sports Massage have a look at the common questions I receive below.


What is Sports Massage?

Sports Massage aims to alleviate pain caused by muscle shortening, joint dysfunction, neuromuscular inefficiency and injuries. Ordinary massage is usually used for relaxation, while Sports Massage is a focused and anatomically specific massage that targets your physical issues. Sports Massage helps to increase flexibility, releasing and reducing muscle tension. Therefore, it’s an excellent way to promote recovery, restore your body after an injury and relieve your pain. Also, Sports Massage improves circulation and reduces delayed onset muscle soreness promoting body relaxation. All these factors contribute to the healing process after injury and to prevent further issues.


Who can benefit from Sports Massage?

Originally, Sports Massage was designed to help athletes before, during and after competition. However, you don’t need to be an athlete to benefit from Sports Massage as it can help anyone who needs soft tissue mobilisation. Whether you are an athlete dealing with injury, an office employee with back pain, or you struggle with conditions such as sciatica or migraines, Sports Massage can help you. 


What happens after a Sports Massage?

The body reaction to Sports Massage is subjective; it varies from individual to individual.

Generally speaking, the same night after a Sports Massage session you will probably sleep better. Then you could feel sore for a couple of days, like if you worked out in the gym, but then you will enjoy the benefits of Sports Massage.



I had plenty of massages before, but nobody has ever assessed my posture before a massage, and that was a very welcome addition to a really relaxing and effective session. I found Valentina professional, trustworthy and capable; at the end of the treatment I was so relaxed that I was ready for a nap, and the fact that Valentina came to my place meant that I could actually have a lie-down and feel even more refreshed afterwards! Highly recommended.
