The primary goal of this therapy is the restoration to normal activity of various muscles of the body, while maintaining good physical condition and health. . Whether you are actively involved in sport or do little or no exercise Sports Massage can help maintain a healthy and active body, aid injury recovery and relieve tension from everyday life stresses.

Using a variety of techniques such as classic deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, cyrotherapy (ice), thermotherapy (heat) and a variety of controlled stretches such as STR’s (Soft Tissue Releases) and MET’s (Muscular Energy Techniques), sports massage mobilises and improves muscle tone, promoting relaxation and stimulating circulation, and in doing so has the potential to produce therapeutic effects on many other systems of the body.

Physically, the pressures of massage along the flow of the lymphatic and venous systems encourages more efficient blood flow and lymphatic drainage, and the movement of other substances which in turn are essential for repair and growth. This aids the restoration of normal tissue condition. The process also facilitates the exchange of fluids and helps in the removal of waste products, such as lactic acid.    Massage will also stretch muscle fibres and the fascia surrounding muscles, breaking down scar tissue and adhesions. Physiologically, massage aids in the reduction of muscle pain and enhances relaxation.

Sports Massage Therapy is an effective treatment for:

  • Sporting injury
  • Lack of flexibility
  • Muscular aches and pains
  • Enhanced recovery after exercise
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Pain relief
  • Increased circulation
  • Stress relief
  • Relief of headaches & migraine
  • Sciatica relief

For the athlete, Sports Massage may be used in conjunction with stretching in order to help loosen, warm and prepare muscles so that performance and endurance might be enhanced. Following an athletic event, Sports Massage may be used to relieve pain, prevent stiffness, and return the muscles back to their normal state. It may also be used for injury rehabilitation. By helping to maintain the entire body in good physical condition, it reduces the possibility of injury and the loss of mobility, especially in high-risk areas and potential trouble-spots. It can aid in the cure of injured muscle tissue and restore mobility, boost athletic performance and enhance endurance, extending both the good health and overall life of a sporting career.
