Sports massage therapy is for athletes of every kind, from world class professionals to weekend warriors. The techniques used are specific to every athlete’s sport of choice. We focus on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often explosive movements. Sports massage is also a key aspect of a balanced training programme. It can be used to enhance pre-event preparation as well as reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or post-event.
It is known to:
- Promote flexibility
- Reduce muscle fatigue
- Improve endurance
- Prevent injury
- Enhance injury rehabilitation
- Prepare the body and mind for optimal performance
Sports massage therapy is not just for athletes. As it generally concentrates on a specific problem area, it is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion.
