Sports Massage

What is Sports Massage?

Sports Massage is used pre-event to warm and awaken muscles and to enable the athlete to train and perform more consistently at a higher level. It is also used post-event to drain fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility, and to prevent injuries.

How does Sports Massage differ from Therapeutic/Holistic Massage?
Sports Massage is a deeper form of soft tissue massage using specific techniques to assess and treat muscle imbalances, potential overuse areas or soft tissue injuries.

How can Sports Massage Help?
Sports Massage is known to:

Improve training
Prevent injury
Enhance self awareness and performance

It is also a natural antioxidant as it helps to remove waste products and refurbishes tissue with essential nutrients which helps the healing process. Used as a preventative measure Sports Massage can detect deep tissue damage and imbalances and possibly correct them before an injury occurs.

Who can Benefit from Sports Massage?
Sports Massage is commonly used prior to sporting events as it can stimulate circulation, relieve stress and assist an athlete to perform in peak physical condition. However this treatment is not just for athletes but for anyone suffering from overuse injuries that can occur in everyday life, such as working at a computer, gardening or carrying children.
