Optimal Body operates from clinics on the Gold Coast and in Underwood, and if you need a well tuned body, our specialised sports massage therapists are ready to help your body be the best it can be!


Sports massage is a specialised form of massage that is specifically tailored to sporting injuries or ailments. It is not meant to be a relaxing massage and, indeed, can become quite vigorous at times. Contrary to its name, sports massage is not only utilised by professional sportspeople or people that exercise heavily. It is of benefit to anyone that exercises, even if it is only mild exercise such as regular walking.

The Purpose of Sports Massage

Sports massage is designed to prevent and relieve injuries and conditions that are associated with exercise.  The massage can often be quite strenuous and is meant to relieve and reduce the stress and tension that can build up within the body’s soft tissues while exercising. A sports massage can be carried out before, during, or after playing sport or exercising and uses specialised techniques that are designed to increase endurance and performance, to minimise the chances of injury and, if there is an injury, to reduce the recovery time.

What Sports Massage Can Do For You

A proper sports massage can treat a variety of ailments and injuries that may occur as a result of exercise. There are also other benefits that allow you to train or exercise more efficiently. If your muscles are not functioning correctly, visiting one of our qualified sports massage therapists at Optimal Body’s Gold Coast or Underwood clinic will help your body to be the best it can be, and show you where your body needs improvement. Once you know how to correct any issues, your performance can only improve!
