Sports massage provides relief if you are suffering from pain before, during and after exercise, or if you have a sporting injury that requires expert treatment from a professional (and friendly!) therapist.
Sports massage treatments help professional and amateur athletes to prepare for performances, recover afterwards and to keep their muscle health in check. Sports massage can also help to treat your sporting injuries and sports-related health conditions. The sports massage focuses on stretching, deep tissue treatment and other techniques – depending on your specific injury or issue.
Who needs sports massage?
You don’t have to be a professional or even amateur athlete to benefit from a sports massage treatment – anyone who experiences pain around exercising can book a treatment and enjoy the benefits.
Sports massage can help you with:
- injury prevention – regular massage can help to prevent injury with general muscle maintenance
- pre-training – sports massage helps to improve joint flexibility, and warm and condition muscles
- enhanced muscle recovery after exercise – helping to reduce soreness and fatigue
- soreness or pain
- strength and flexibility
- increased circulation
- stress relief
When should I get a massage around a big race?
Avoid having deeper treatment within 3-4 days of the race.
You run the risk of your legs feeling tired, heavy and sore.
Aim for about a week out from the race and make the focus maintenance – not treatment of a specific issue. If it’s not fixed by now, it’s not likely to improve that significantly in a week.
Our professional massage therapists will design a solution to work with your training regime with specific focus on releasing tension and improving your strength, flexibility and muscle rehabilitation.
