Sports Massage is an application of massage specifically designed to prevent and relieve injuries and conditions associated with exercise. It can often be quite strenuous and is designed to relieve and reduce the stress and tension that can build up within the body’s soft tissues while exercising.
This treatment can be carried out before, during, or after playing sport or exercising and uses techniques that are designed to increase endurance and performance, to improve condition and performance of the body, to minimise the chances of injury and, if there is an injury, to reduce the recovery time.
Sports Massage can treat a variety of ailments and injuries that may occur as a result of exercise. It also has other benefits that allow you to train or exercise more efficiently.
What to expect in your session
Your therapist will ask your schedule, and seek information on your current condition and complaints. They may perform some preliminary testing, and will inform you of the treatment plan.
During your Sports Massage, your therapist will incorporate a number of appropriate techniques and levels of pressure, constantly monitoring the response in your tissue to maximise its functionality and enhance its condition. As each of us experiences treatment differently the therapist will ensure that the pressure applied is always within the tolerance range of the client. Following your treatment you may be given stretches or strengthening exercises.
As with all treatment types, it is important to drink plenty of water after a treatment to help eliminate toxins from the body.
