Our focus at ATM is Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Remedial massage. We deliver the best results with proven Sports massage techniques. Don’t put up with a niggle or pain, come to see us for clinical and effective massage therapy in the heart of Auckland CBD today!
Making Sports massage part of your training routine will reduce your downtime and risk of injury and help you achieve your goals quicker. We are always working together with Physiotherapists and other muscular-skeletal specialists to tailor your treatment towards your goal and get you back on your feet.
Most of all we have been there, done that ourselves: Rotorua Marathon, Taupo Ironman, Round the Lake to name but a few, we’ve been there seeing athletes and competitors across the line and into the massage tent for recovery. Sports Massage after an event can speed up your recovery, reduce inflammation and let you focus on the next goal straight away. Your massage therapist is often the first person to help you decide if something is just a strain or fatigue or if there is something to follow up with a specialist. Good advise, great experience and helpful tips – we have it all !
Deep Tissue Massage uses techniques from Swedish Massage, Trigger Point Therapy and Acupressure to effectively release tension. The aim here is to help soften toughened muscle fibre in order to improve function and get the muscle work normally and pain free again. Not all Deep Tissue Massage has to be painful to the extreme. We need to use just enough pressure to get to the deeper layers of tissue, which should be well within your comfort zone.
Sports Massage therapy is an essential tool for recovery in any sport and as part of your weekly training schedule, will allow you to train more efficiently and achieve your sporting goals quicker. Deep tissue work allows for faster recovery, less inflammation and less downtime. Sports massage has been clinically proven to be the best way to keep connective tissue supple and elastic to combat the stress of training on the body. Sports massage increases the localised blood flow to your muscles and helps to decrease the inflammatory response of the body after a workout. Only sports massage can deliver this crucial part of recovery to your system in the context of active relaxation. What is the difference between sports massage and ordinary massage?
Recover quicker, train better!

and his groundbreaking research with competitive cyclists receiving massage after big training efforts in the US.
We have treated Ironmen, Marathon runners, Paralympians and many more. Carmen is a keen runner herself and has helped many a triathlete through those typical niggles of Achilles’ Tendonopathy
, Runners Knee
and other wear and tear injuries. Sports massage is a great tool in preventing injury in the first place. But even once things have gone to the injury stage, sports massage can still help to get you back on your feet quicker.
Auckland Therapeutic Massage will work out a treatment plan that will benefit you the most. We can also provide referrals to other back pain specialists should we feel that you may need additional treatment, such as chiropractic.
No matter the sporting issue or injury , Auckland Therapeutic Massage is here to get you back into good health and help maintain your physical fitness.
With more than a decade of extensive experience in the field of massage therapy, we can even come to your location, sports event or to your home to deliver outstanding results (conditions apply). Don’t suffer in silence, it is unlikely just to go away ‘by itself’. Most of all we feel that massage has benefits for every body. Literally.
