Sports massage is recognised as an essential part of a sportsman’s training schedule to maintain healthy muscles and to identify potential weakness in order to prevent injury; as part of a rehabilitation programme; as part of a warm-up for an event and as part of the wind-down after the event.
Sports Massage speeds up the healing of damaged or overworked tissue and muscles thus reducing recovery time and allowing a sports person to regain their health and performance. It increases fitness capabilities, prevents future injury by identifying and treating current muscle weakness, tiredness and problem areas.
Post Event Massage
- helps clear out waste and toxins, e.g. lactic acid from muscles, reducing stiffness and enabling a faster recovery than post-event rest.
- helps break up adhesions that can develop between the fascia of different muscles, thus improving muscle suppleness and mobility.
- enables muscles and joints to heal faster after injury.
- improves flexibility and peak performance can be reached faster and, once reached, sustained over longer periods.
