When a regular massage just doesn’t work on your constant muscle aches and stubborn knots, it’s time to consider a sports massage.
While sports massages are mainly designed for athletes, you do not have to be a sportsperson to enjoy the benefits of a sports massage such as the realignment of muscle fibres and connective tissues as well as the removal of toxins. If you really want to know, regular sports massage sessions can help increase joint mobility and flexibility too.
A sports massage at a physiotherapy clinic or rehabilitation centre is possibly the most effective way to de-stress, soothe muscle tension, and promote recovery. What’s more, it can help you prevent injuries and improve sports performance as well!
Below, check out our round-up of the best 12 sports massages you can get in Singapore to fix that chronic neck pain or backache – once and for all.

12. Aylwin Sports Therapy
Aylwin Sports Therapy is set up by Aylwin Aaron, a competitive track and field runner who had to give up his dreams after not having sufficient funds to rehabilitate for a combination of an unfortunate incident and cartilage wear-and-tear from all the vigorous training.
With his new venture, Aylwin’s goal is to provide targeted physical therapy like sports massage and even clinical dry cupping at affordable prices so that anyone who is experiencing a stiff neck from long office hours or have a sports injury can seek help without worrying too much about the cost.
Here, you will also find a combination of services with an affordable price tag. For instance, a 45-minute session of Instrument-assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) with Sports Massage will only cost you $110 – and you’ll get 20% off your booking if you’re a first-time customer too!
There’s also a special student promotion on offer: S$80 for a 45-minute session of IASTM, dry cupping, and sports massage.
