Have you noticed that you feel sore after your workout? Or has your performance plateaued? Don’t feel like you’re getting as much out of your workout as you used to? Does it take you more than a few days to recover from a session? Then sports massage can help!
Receiving regular remedial massage as part of your training regime will not only boost your performance, but it will also reduce your recovery time, prevent joint and soft tissue injury and help to increase your flexibility and range of motion within the joints. By increasing circulation to the muscles, muscle fibres are smoothed out, lactic acid build up is flushed out and nourishing blood floods the area to give muscles the nourishment they need to perform at their best.
Sports massage works deeper into the muscle to ensure the full thickness of the muscle is treated, as well as deeper muscles that sit beneath the superficial layers of muscle. The intensity is higher than a remedial or therapeutic massage, and so can usually be more painful, particularly if there is increased congestion and trigger point activity.
To be able to train at your peak, remedial massage is essential if you want greater range of motion and reduced recovery times between sessions.
The frequency of your massage treatments will depend on the intensity you are training at, what your goals are, and the nature of your chosen sport. We can discuss thus with you during your assessment.
