If you’re in training for a race, recovering from a competition, or if you’re brand new to fitness – Sports Massage is of huge benefit to you. Even if you’re not ‘sporty’, stress and the repetitive patterns of everyday life influence the health of soft-tissue and joints, and ultimately leads to an ‘adapted’ posture, which causes discomfort.
Everyone can benefit from Sports Massage – so even if you’re not regularly taking part in exercise but think that Sports Massage will benefit you, it most likely will!
Muscle injuries are more common now than they were 50 years ago. That’s not because we’re exercising harder – it’s because we’re more sedentary. What’s worse, as we age our joints tend to stiffen, making range of motion and ﬂexibility even more restricted. Sports Massage is a beneﬁcial treatment for maintaining and improving ﬂexibility and motion. By working on muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and joints, regular massage can improve your ﬂexibility and range of motion, keeping your joints more ﬂuid and making them less injury prone.
Sports Massage can be used either in response to injury/pain, or in a regular programme of treatments to:
- Improve overall soft-tissue and joint health
- Enhance athletic performance
- Speed-up post-exercise recovery
- Improve conditioning
- Maintain peak performance, and possibly even prevent injury.
So whether you’re experiencing pain and discomfort through exercise or you’re struggling to sit at your desk without neck pain, Sports Massage will be of benefit to you and your Sports Massage Therapist is well qualified to ascertain the exact type of treatment that you need.
You’re in good hands!
