Sports massage is more than a treatment, it involves an evaluation of how you are using your body in your chosen field. Your pain or discomfort may indicate a weakness where muscle balance can be skewed by activities such as golf,running, cycling, walking etc. This creates a pattern in your body which your everyday jobs and lives also contribute to. So, this pattern is assessed before a plan is devised and treatment recommended to help you enjoy your sport. Exercises and modifications maybe included as part of the plan. During sports activity tension builds-up in soft tissue causing pain and stiffness. This form of deep massage incorporates effleurage, petrissage, frictions, trigger point release and stretches aiming to improve circulation, promote healing and enable relaxation. Such techniques are useful for all types of sports and can help prevent or reduce injury. Many individuals find sports massage techniques relaxing and effective in treating soft tissue injury even if they are not involved in sporting activity. Sports massage helps reorientate and reinvigorate your body. It can prevent or reduce injury and supports you in your chosen sport.
