Sports Massage therapy is used not only by top athletes, but by most people interested in sports and fitness. Sports massage is a speciality within the field of massage therapy that focuses specifically on assisting the training process, preventing injury and aiding the healing process when injury occurs. Both the occasional athlete and the serious athlete can encounter soreness and injury, making this form of massage beneficial no matter how athletic a person is.
Everyone from soccer, rugby and hurling players, marathon runners, and cyclists to gym goers, swimmers, moms and dads can benefit and use a sports massage. It can assist an athlete in all phases of competition reducing soreness and fatigue during the training process, giving a head start before the competition and speeding the recovery period after the event.
Sports massage is a combination of massage, trigger point therapy and mobilisation techniques (where appropriate) with the intention of creating a better range of motion and performance of muscles and connective tissue.
Common complaints treated with sports massage are: frozen shoulders; pulled hamstrings; oedema; muscle sprains or strains. Muscle and tendon injuries can be prevented and the healing of injuries can be accelerated.
If you have ever had cramps in your limbs, torn a muscle or simply overstretched them, then sports massage may be the answer for you.
