Typically used before, during or after athletic events, sports massage can benefit non-athletes, too: we can all injure ourselves in our daily lives, and this treatment involves the mainpulation of soft tissue to release tension, reduce pain, restore range of movement and promote good condition.
During this treatment, I will use deeper and more vigorous strokes to reduce muscular tension and swelling, while boosting circulation and flexibility. This is combined with soft tissue release and muscle energy techniques to stretch and lengthen muscles. I will use trigger pointing to tackle knots, and stretching may also be incorporated.
Sports massage helps speed up your recovery from an injury and, particularly for athletes, enhance performance. Postural assessment and gait analysis may be used, along with a range of movement testing. You may also be given exercises and stretches to carry out at home.
