Sports Massage Benefits

Depending on the injury, the aim of the sessions is to alleviate pain, reduce muscle tightness, relieve muscle spasm, develop strength, improve balance/proprioception, increase range of movement and improve both function and performance. Sports massage is a manual technique applied to the body’s soft tissues. It is a deep and intense massage treatment. In addition, the treatment uses various techniques involving stretching, toning, friction and compression. It is invigorating and can effectively treat muscular damage, overuse injuries, muscle tension and reduce the risk of injury.

When it Can Be Used

Sports massage can be used for maintenance massage, pre and post exercise events and for injury rehabilitation. The soft tissue techniques of this treatment are effective in the management of both acute and chronic injuries. Furthermore, it can speed up the body’s healing process and reduce discomfort and pain from injury. Such intervention combined with an active gym rehabilitation programme guided by our therapists will help manage and improve your condition. For more information, give our team a call today.
