Sports massage helps alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity.
Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement.
This treatment is not just for the athlete. Everyone can benefit from this massage, including those who do without physically demanding work and those who are not exposed to such obvious stresses as work, emotions and posture, as these types of stress have comparable characteristics to sports injuries.
Sports massage tends to be deep and intense. It is based on the various elements of Swedish massage and often incorporates a combination of other techniques involving stretching, compression, friction, toning, and trigger point response techniques similar to Acupressure and Shiatsu.
The experienced masseuse combines a blend of massage techniques, experience and advice during the treatment to work effectively with the patient for optimal performance, injury-free training and minimization of stress injuries.
