Why get a Sports Massage?
What is Sports Massage like?
If you play sports or exercise regularly, any serious athlete or physiotherapist will tell you that you need to be combining your fitness routine with regular Sports Massage.
Regular massages will reduce your risk of injury, improve your recovery time post-workout, enable you to exercise more frequently and make sure any little tweaks or niggles don’t turn into something bigger and nastier.
Sports Massage is not the relaxing, tranquil treatment that you’d find at any spa. Instead, it’s a sports therapy designed to improve the quality of movement, boost recovery from injury or exercise and ease pain. It is administered by qualified professionals who have been rigorously trained in the musculoskeletal structure and anatomy of the human body.
Is Sports Massage Right for me?
The name Sports Massage defines an overall approach to massage therapy, rather than something that's exclusively for sportsmen and women. Though it has been primarily designed to help improve performance and reduce pain and injury in sport, fitness and exercise, its results-driven approach makes it highly effective for people from all walks of life, particularly for anyone looking to improve flexibility, ease tight or painful muscles or combat postural or musculoskeletal pain – whether from an every day injury or simply (and frequently) from spending long hours at a desk.
Sports Massage techniques can also be used to reduce the impact of previous injuries, and the resulting scar tissue or inelasticity that may be impacting on your body’s ability to heal or move properly.
At BodyTherapy.Health, we provide Sports Massage for everyone from runners, triathletes, tennis players, footballers, cricketers and golfers, to weekend warriors, busy mums and time-poor executives
