About Sports Massage

Sports massage is a firm and focused massage that is designed to alleviate the tension that accumulates in the body’s soft tissue during exercise. As well as reducing muscular tension, treating minor injuries and easing deep muscular discomfort, sports massage is used to prevent minor injuries which often disrupt physical performance, whether the client is an elite athlete or an occasional jogger.

The treatment is not exclusive to athletes and can be beneficial to those in both physically demanding and sedentary jobs, where poor posture, increased muscular tension, and reduced flexibility produce similar characteristics to a sporting injury.

Sports massage can be used to help with:

  • Injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation
  • Easing deep muscular pain and tension
  • Relaxation
  • Recovery from sport
  • Preparation for training and competition

The effects and benefits include:

  • Loosening restricted joints and easing out tight muscles
  • Warming up the body before exercise
  • Relaxing the body after physical exertion
  • Improving recovery between exercise
  • Preventing the aggravation of minor injuries
  • Improving lymphatic and blood circulation
  • Reducing stress and anxiety
