Welcome to

Full Potential Sports Massage

About Me

My name is Richard Brady, and I am a Level 3 ITEC Qualified Masseur, Active IQ Personal Trainer and first aid qualified sports therapist based in the North East. I have both a FdSc Sports Injury and Rehabilitation (Hons) degree as well as a Bsc Sports Therapy degree.

I currently work as a sports masseur at Balmoral Physiotherapy in Gosforth, as well as a Sports Therapist and Masseur at Sports Injury Clinic in Benton, as well as Sports Therapist at Heaton Stannington F.C.

My passion and desire is to improve the quality of life of those with sports injuries as I am well aware of the negative impact sporting injuries can have on an individual both physically and psychologically.

Why Sports Massage?

Sports Massage can be used to treat both acute and chronic injuries. A number of massage techniques are employed such as cross fibre friction, trigger point therapy and connective tissue release. Massage has a number of positive physical, physiological and psychological benefits.

Physical

  • Stretches soft tissue
  • Relieves Muscle Tension
  • Improve Muscle Flexibility
  • Break down scar tissue
  • Decrease swelling
  • Reduce muscle spasm
  • Improves Range of Movement

Physiological

  • Boost blood flow
  • Removal of waste products
  • Nervous system stimulation
  • Increases nutrient flow to soft tissues

Psychological

  • Pain Relief
  • Decreases tension within muscles
  • Stimulates physical activity

Sports Massage can be used for maintenance, pre/post event or for rehabilitation. Maintenance massage is based on the clients sporting activity and allowing the client to reach peak sporting performance through a routine program of massage.

My ability to concentrate on targeted muscle groups as per individualised sports can help decrease injury risk, as well as increasing muscle flexibility, range of motion and allowing optimal performance. 

Event massage can be used to help boost circulation and blood flow to muscles pre-event, as well as reducing physical and psychological pressure on the athlete. Post Event massage helps to reduce waste products such as lactic acid that is a natural by-product of exercise. My techniques can help reduce the chance of injury, decrease potential muscle soreness and allow the athlete to recover quicker.

Rehabilitation massage can help speed healing, reduce injury risk and help reduce aches and cramp pain. Massage can be used to reduce scar tissue which is created in the body after injury and make it more pliable.
