WHAT IS SPORTS MASSAGE?
Sports Massage Therapy is a form of deep tissue massage which aims to improve the suppleness and flexibility of muscles and joints by eliminating toxins embedded in muscle fibres, minimise scar tissue build up and remove adhesions. It can also improve circulation which enhances cell nutrition, and reduces the recovery time of damaged or stressed tissues.
How does sports massage differ from other types of therapeutic massage?
Some of the basic techniques in sports massage can be the same as those used in other forms of therapeutic massage, but the therapist may apply the techniques more deeply and firmly. Some sports massage techniques are designed to shift an old or chronic injury back into its acute stage, to trigger the body’s natural healing process to complete the process of repair.
A regular sports massage is recommended if you’re always pushing your body physically. How long you should go between treatments depends on the frequency and intensity of your training session. But don’t leave it too long between massages, otherwise progress will be very slow.
