The prime purpose of sports massage is to alleviate the stress and tension that builds up in the body’s soft tissue during physical activity. Sports massage can quickly and effectively help break down adhesions and lesions that can occur due to overuse and over exertion thus improving flexibility and performance.
This treatment is not just for the sports person. Anyone in a physically demanding job or any repetitive activity can benefit from sports massage.
Sports massage tends to be deep, intense and specific to the affected muscle group. It is based on the various elements of Swedish massage but will incorporate advanced techniques such as fascial release, neuromuscular techniques and trigger point techniques.
As a skilled therapist I bring together a blend of these techniques, knowledge and post treatment advice to work effectively with my client to bring about optimum performance and to provide injury free training and minimise post event injuries.
I work closely with Personal Trainer, David Page who founded ‘Your 1 to 1 Fitness’. David will listen to what you wish to achieve and encourage you through an exercise program carefully designed to stretch and strengthen muscles. This will help increase mobility, and increase stamina levels. Deep tissue massage is a perfect compliment to a training schedule.
There are three main areas where you can benefit from sports massage.
