The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. It can help prevent niggling injuries can get in the way of performance and achievement, whether you are an athlete, a regular keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.
Sports massage is not limited to just sports people though, if fact most people can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and those not quite so obvious (occupational, emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries).
Sports massage tends to be deeper and more intense. It is based on the various elements of Swedish massage and often incorporates a combination of other techniques involving stretching, compression, friction, toning and trigger point response techniques. Trigger point techniques reduce the spasm and pain that occur both in the injured and "compensation" muscles.
Sports Massage can be used as part of a regular massage treatment programme or pre or post event therapy.
