Sports massage is used to prepare or recover from performance or training and to treat sporting conditions or injuries. Sports massage is not designed to be a relaxing massage, rather it can become quite vigorous at times working on problem areas. Sports Massage can include deep tissue treatment and facilitated stretching as well as other more advanced techniques.
Despite popular belief, sports massage is not only used 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. This form of massage yields benefits that are useful to the average person, such as muscle tension relief and reduction of spasms, cramps and pain brought about by the stresses of daily living, training, busy schedules and computer use.
DO I NEED SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY AND WHAT IS THE PURPOSE?
If you suffer from recurring pain during or after exercise, or you have suffered a specific sports injury, you will benefit from a sports massage.
Sports massage is designed to prevent and relieve injuries and conditions that occur as a result of exercise. It can be carried out before, during, or after playing sport or exercising and uses 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.
