Sports Massage is one of the most effective therapies for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the body. A constant build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity can lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves.
Without treatment these imbalances can develop and often go undiagnosed until they become serious enough to cause discomfort or impede performance. As a therapist I aim to detect variations in the soft tissues and by using the correct techniques, help my clients maintain a much healthier physical state.
What is Sports Massage?
Sports Massage is a deep muscle treatment that loosens up tight muscles, breaks up adhesions in muscle fibres, and generally focuses on restoring and/or maintaining the full functionality of your muscles. Sports Massage can help your muscles perform better and prevent injury.
Muscle injuries will often heal more effectively with the help of Sports Massage. Sports Massage has many potential benefits.
Whatever your sporting or exercise level is, massage will help get the most from your body. Any soreness, strain, bruising, tightness, pain or weakness in a muscle is a sign that it is congested and not functioning to its full potential.
Sports Massage can help decongest the muscles and relieve these unwanted symptoms.
Regular treatments allow you to train or work to your full potential, recover optimally and help ensure that your muscles are in peak condition.
Sports Massage concentrates on understanding and preventing soft tissue and muscle injuries including dealing with the effects of physical trauma. The aim of Sport Massage is to return and/or maintain functional fitness in the shortest possible time.
