What is Sports Massage?
Clinical sports massage is the application of massage therapy to athletes and others that engages themselves in intense physical activity for performance enhancement and health maintenance.
It is commonly used for conditioning, recover, remediation of problem conditions, and rehabilitation. Playing sports can be harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries that can throw the body out of alignment if not addressed quickly.
The benefits of Sports Massage
Sports massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pain and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility and dramatically improve recovery rates.
Why do I need Sports Massage?
A constant build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves.
These muscle imbalances may develop and can cause the athlete discomfort and impede performance. Regular massage therapy treatments during training, pre and post event, can help the athlete maintain a much healthier physical state.
Sports massage is a specific type of massage that uses deeper techniques to treat a range of problems, primarily by releasing and rebalancing muscles and tendons.
