What is a Sports Massage? 

The traditional Swedish massage technique is used as part of a sports massage and further enhanced by using advanced soft tissue techniques that include muscle energy techniques, trigger point therapy, soft tissue release and myofascial release. We use a range of advanced techniques and flexibility / motion tests, allowing us to identify the injury area and root cause in order to then rectify the issue.

There are many benefits associated with a sports massage, including its ability to target soft tissue layers, from superficial to deep tissue layers. Other benefits include: 

  • Increased flexibility
  • Enhanced ability of motion
  • Relaxation
  • Relief of muscle tension
  • Reduction of symptomatic pain
  • Identifies any potential problems early
  • Better use of available muscle
  • Improvement in performance
  • Stimulation of micro-circulation which improves rehabilitation and recovery times
  • Fine-tune training
  • More functional balance of muscles
