Sports Massage is typically used before, during and after a physical activity or an event. Pre-event and post-event Sports Massage is tailored to the needs of the client depending on his/her event or activity.
Pre-Event Massage – Light pressure and vigorous techniques are applied to help encourage warmth and stimulate circulation.
Post-Event Massage – Light slow pressure and techniques are applied to help relieve muscular soreness and assists in the removal of waste products such as lactic acid. It can helpful after heavy training sessions as well as competition events.
Sports Maintenance Massage – Helps to alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues, using concentrated firm pressure and specific techniques.
Rehabilitation Massage – Techniques differ from Pre/Post Event Massage. It is used specifically for maintaining or improving range of motion and muscle flexibility. Using soft tissue techniques to aid management and recovery from acute or chronic muscular conditions/injuries. Trigger point techniques reduce the spasm and pain that occurs both in the injured and the compensating muscles.
Sports Massage is not just for the athletes competing in events and competitions. You can benefit from sports massage if you have a physically demanding job, those that enjoy physical activity like walking, using cardio machines or weights in a gym or people that regularly go to fitness classes.
Many of my clients experience a variety of benefits from having a sports massage that have included:
- Reduced recovery time after an injury.
- Reduced anxiety.
- Improved mood.
- Increased blood flow throughout the body.
