Sports Massage is not limited to athletes and is suitable for anyone irrespective of age, level of fitness or gender. It is an appropriate therapy for anyone who is in need of soft tissue work, whether this is due to an injury or area of discomfort, or whether they are in need of a general massage. Sports Massage helps create an environment to enable the body to restore itself to its optimal function.
Those involved with sports find that sports massage, as a regular part of their training programme helps with preparation for events, improved performance and recovery as well as reduced injury occurrence. Those not involved in sports can also benefit from sports massage. For example they may have problems due to the demands placed on their body, such as from having a physical job, working long hours at a desk, having children to care for or partaking in gardening.
Sports Massage can be beneficial alongside physiotherapy, osteopathy and chiropractic treatment, as well as in rehabilitative therapy, or as a health benefit, to improve psychological well-being, promoting relaxation.
