Our service offers a complete package of care from injury management and rehabilitation to injury prevention.

Our physios will then advise you on an individual treatment plan to aid a fast, effective recovery.
Sports MassageAt St Judes our sports massages in Leighton Buzzard are carried out by Chartered Physiotherapists, with their vast knowledge of anatomy and physiotherapy experience, you can expect professional treatment and sound clinical advice. Sports Massage is a deep form of therapeutic massage designed for active, sportspeople to stretch out and relax specific muscle groups or areas of the body. Massage therapy can help:
- Relax muscles
- Increase blood circulation
- Maintain the body and generally keep it in better condition
- Prevent injuries and loss of mobility
- Improve range of motion and provide greater joint flexibility
- Boost performance and improve recovery times following exercise
- Relieve muscle aches and pain and reduces postural tension
The stroking effects of massage helps with the removal of lactic acid and encourages the muscles to take up oxygen and nutrients, aiding recovery. Our experienced Physiotherapists can help break down scar tissue from previous injuries or trauma which can affect muscle, tendons and ligaments. Sessions are often used as a regular treatment to aid recovery and ease tight muscles.
An initial sports massage treatment at St Judes is 45 minutes with follow-up sessions of 30, 45 or 60 minutes. For your convenience, appointments are also available on Saturdays and evenings. Book your appointment today!
