Sports Massage

Sports Massage is a form of massage therapy that specifically targets the muscles used in sport activities. It helps to improve range of motion, reduce fatigue & muscle soreness, increase flexibility & circulation, & prevent injuries. Sports Massage can be performed before or after physical activity, as well as during rehabilitation from an injury.

Athletes use Sports Massage for a variety of reasons. Before an event or game, it can help athletes prepare mentally by increasing focus & relaxation. Afterward, it can speed up recovery time by decreasing muscular tension caused by exercise. During recovery from an injury, Sports Massage can also promote healing by reducing inflammation around the injured area & improving blood flow to the site so that more oxygen-rich red blood cells can reach the tissue & carry away metabolic waste.

PRE EVENT SPORTS MASSAGE – Aim is to help increase circulation, flexibility & warm up the muscles to improve your performance.

POST EVENT SPORTS MASSAGE – Aim is to help relax the muscles, improve recovery circulation, restore flexibility & help allow for a quicker recovery with delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)

Sports Massage is an important part of any athlete’s fitness routine, as it helps them to stay healthy & perform better. Even if you are not a professional athlete, sports massage can still be beneficial for anyone who experiences tightness or pain resulting from physical activity.
