SPORTS MASSAGE - NOT ONLY FOR ATHLETES...



SPORTS MASSAGE:
Sports massage deals with the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body and has many benefits.
But our sports massage is not only for sporty people and sports injuries, but is very much used as a specific treatment of the muscles and soft tissues of the body for anybody!
But for elite athletes a good sports masseur is invaluable to help their sports injuries and performance.

SPORTS MASSAGE IMPROVES TRAINING
- sport massage increases blood flow through the tissues can improve the recovery process allowing the athlete to train more effectively and safely
- sports massage assists the removal of waste products and helps supply the tissues with essential nutrients to aid recovery
- sports massage increases the understanding of the deep tissues, which means advice can be given on specific stretching, training and equipment to help improve performance.

SPORTS MASSAGE PREVENTS INJURY
- imbalances and damage in deep tissues can be detected earlier and potentially corrected before an injury develops.

SPORTS MASSAGE IMPROVES PERFORMANCE
- pre-event sports massage can stimulate circulation, calm nervous tension and help prepare the athlete for optimal performance.

SPORTS MASSAGE IMPROVES SELF AWARENESS
- through deep tissue massage, an athlete can learn to monitor their own condition and adjust their training accordingly.
