Sports Massage Benefits

Sports massage and deep tissue massage are terms which are often used interchangeably but really should not.

Sports massage refers not just to a technique which employs many hands-on applications, (e.g, soft tissue release, trigger point release, myofascial release), but also a variety of massage strokes and application depths/pressures (light to deep), and ice and heat therapies, all applied in a specific manner pertinent to the status of the individual athlete and their event.

 

It is a very specific education on the effects of movement/exercise/sports on the body and how hands-on techniques may aid in injury repair, maintenance and prevention. Sports massage care was developed to improve physical performance. To provide therapeutic impact for the physical and biomechanical needs of the athlete. For injury correction and prevention by assisting the repair, restoration and enhancement of muscle integrity and function. It increases endurance, aiding circulation and improving elasticity and flexibility, as well as providing a psychological boost to the athlete consistent with his or her commitment to peak performance

 

Advanced fitness instruction and 1-2-1 coaching

In addition to treatment you can also receive one-to-one training to provide continuity of care beyond the treatment room, and to progress your rehabilitation beyond 'activities of daily living'. Or if you prefer, to improve your general fitness and sports performance.

 

Advanced Sports & Exercise Nutritional Advice

To support you further on the way to sporting success we offer detailed analysis and advice regarding your diet and nutrition. Bespoke advice, plans and strategies can be constructed to suit depending upon your goals and current phase of training or competing. In addition, we can advise and provide guidance regarding issues relating to doping in sport, and best practice to avoid inadvertently violating anti-doping regulations which may result in you being banned from your sport.

It does not constitute medical diagnosis, nor does it replace medical advice already received from your doctor or dietician. If you have any health concerns regarding your diet and nutrition you should consult with your doctor in the first instance.
