Sport: Activity involving physical exertion
Massage: The rubbing of muscles and joints to relieve tension or pain
A Sports Massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue which stimulates lymph fluid and blood circulation to break down ‘knots’ in the muscles. This stretches the muscles to give a greater range of motion and encouraging blood flow circulation increases oxygen to the muscles which helps with recovery.
This form of massage isn’t just for die-hard athletes. Whether you are training for a fitness event, you are brand new to exercise or you don’t do any exercise and just want a targeted treatment for muscle soreness, this treatment is for you. Getting regular massages will keep the tissues loose, helping to reduce the development of scar tissue, injury and therefore pain. Overall, having a Sports Massage helps to optimise muscle health, improve posture, muscle function and daily performance.
Our Massage Therapists use a tailored approach using deep but controlled pressure that promotes a more long term benefit.
