Sports massage or soft tissue therapy is suitable for almost everyone and can have many benefits, helping to improve your quality of life in general as well as in your chosen sport. Sports therapy deals with those nagging aches and pains that plague all of us from time to time.
These problems are usually caused by general day to day living, hobbies, work practices and sport and in most cases can be improved very quickly.
We offer sports therapy treatments which focus on soft tissue injuries, typically affecting muscles, tendons and ligaments. The techniques used by sports massage practitioners have been developed to ensure effective and efficient results are gained from each massage given.
Sports massage can help the following:
- Assisting sports performance in training, competition and recovery
- Post exercise recovery by improving circulation to muscles after training
- Improved flexibility through stretching and correcting soft tissue dysfunction
- Loosening muscles by changing muscle length and tone
- Helping remodel scar tissue after injury
- Injury prevention
It is important to remember that any physical activity can cause a soft tissue injury, not just sport! You do not need to only be a sports performer to benefit from a sports massage. The benefits of a sports massage can also help relieve many day to day problems that everyone experiences such as repetitive strain injury, sprains, tension and fatigue. Many sports massage practitioners work with a great range of clients in assisting with preventive treatment and injury recovery.
