Benefits of Massage

Sports massage aims to improve the suppleness and flexibility of muscles and joints, improve blood circulation, speed up the healing of damaged or stressed muscles, tissues and joints and prevents future muscle and tendon injuries.

Sports Massage is based on Swedish Massage, a technique that uses the application of pressure to manipulate soft tissue and to break down adhesions in the body. It incorporates a range of techniques including muscle energy technique, soft tissue release, myofacial release and connective tissue release. This form of massage helps to promote healthy wellbeing and prevent any further injury.

Sports Massage is beneficial for:

  •   Athletes
  •   Repetitive Sports Injuries
  •   Office Workers
  •   Repetitive Strain Injuries
  •   Muscle Tension
  •   Frozen Shoulder
  •   Breaks and Fractures to the body
  •   Arthritis
  •   Headaches/Migraines
  •   Postural Problems

Sports Massage involves a postural examination and is an effective treatment aid for those wishing to improve overall posture (especially those sitting in front of computer screens for long periods of time).
You will receive excellent advice for the working and home environments. For athletes sports massage incorporates lots of stretching and trigger point release. Our skilled therapists are also able to offer effective advice for pre and post activity. Sports massage can be carried out prior to a sports event, when it will stimulate circulation, calm nervous tension and prepare the individual for optimal performance whilst at the same time reducing the risk of injury. It can be carried out after a sports event, when it will relieve soreness and assist with the removal of lactic acid and other waste products.

During training it will focus on speeding up the healing of existing injuries and preventing the development of future injuries. Sports Massage is also effective in the speeding up of recovery time with injuries, and helps to regain flexibility through a range of stretching techniques.
