The way we treat you
Sports Massage is made up of specific massage techniques that are aimed at enhancing an athlete’s performance; it’s a way of working with your body to help prevent injury as well as to speed up recovery. A massage protocol that’s used to treat a sports person, pre, intra and post event, Sports Massage is made up of a combination of remedial and deep tissue techniques. Aimed at restoring musculoskeletal balance it is also a treatment that encourages recovery and assists in the rehabilitation of sports-related injuries.
Sports Massage elongates shortened tissues to help increase flexibility. It also flushes metabolic waste from tissues promoting a faster recovery and through palpation it can identify areas of muscle imbalance, for example tightness or strength. Furthermore, it works to break down adhesions (knots and scar tissue), which enables better movement as well as using specific muscle techniques to improve flexibility and joint mobility.
