Sports massage is a form of deep tissue massage which aims to help relax the muscle, improve flexibility, ease aches and pains and treat sporting injuries. It is ideal for anyone involved in sporting activities to keep the muscles in tip-top condition, as well as helping prevent injuries. Even if you don’t exercise, sports massage is perfect for day-to-day aches and pains and for those who prefer a firmer massage.
For those involved in sports or exercise, sports massage can be used as a regular maintenance tool, or to prepare your body for an event such as a race or match. It is also used as a recovery tool, post competition. Ideal timing when booking sports massage in the run-up to an event is 3-5 days prior. For post-event massage 2-4 days is ideal.
We also see lots of clients for sports massage with conditions such as back or neck pain and this can really help. In so many cases of back pain the cause of the pain is muscular and so a good, deep massage or two can really help in one off cases. If this is a persistent problem, consider booking in for an injury assessment to identify and correct the issues which are repeatedly causing your pain.
