But can't tell you this week's lottery numbers!
Nov 12th, 2018
Hello, I have been training for a half marathon alongside other activities and am getting a few aches and pains in my lower back and down my left leg which I think could be the result of tight glute and calf muscles.
Do you think a sports massage could help and if so how do I book in?
I work in Belgravia so one of your clinics around there would be great.
The Guru Responded:
I’m sure a sports massage will help – it’ll make you feel better, but I don’t honestly believe that if you’re looking for a longer term solution, training well and managing your symptoms then sports massage is not the long term solution…..
The best, most cost effective solution is ultimately a running rehab program, where you have to do something to see the long term benefit.
Here’s why – you don’t just “wake up” with tight muscles. They develop because of a muscle imbalance elsewhere and you need to rehab this to control and ultimately eliminate your symptoms when training/running.
Have a look here at this video
If (after all that!) a sport massage is for you (and why not)
Chelsea is probably your closest and Serena, Lorenzo and Laura are all bloody brill!
Give us a bell.
Thank you – do you guys offer a running rehab programme?
I definitely need to do more rolling and stretching but will also look at those clinics you flagged in Chelsea.
Take a look at our Running Assessment
Stretching and rolling all very good BUT getting better hip/pelvis stability (starting tonight!!) and gluteal control is key. There’s some good stuff in here too….

Sarah and James are good listeners and reassuring, and don't overload you with rehab excerises just enough to make progress
