Sports massage therapy

WHAT IS A SPORTS MASSAGE?

Sports massages will be delivered by a qualified Sports Massage Therapist (SMT) and is used to:

 

  • Help prevent injuries

 

  • Prepare the body for sporting activities

 

  • Help your body to recover from workouts and injuries.

 

Sports massage works deep in the muscles to realign muscle fibres, connective tissue and flushing away toxins that can sit in the muscles.

 

REGULAR MASSAGES WILL INCREASE JOINT MOBILITY, FLEXIBILITY & REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY.

 

A sports massage can help physically with long term injuries and your therapist can give you specific advice on exercises & stretches to aid your recovery.

 

 

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A SPORTS MASSAGE

 

 

Your sports massage will be approximately an hour and will start with discussing & recording your injury/reason for attending and some diagnostic tests on the affected area.

 

You may be required to remove some of your outer items of clothing, but you will always remain covered, ususally using towels.

 

Once a treatment plan has been discusssed with you, your therapist will warm the muscles in the affected area using hands-on techniques, applying hypo-allergenic massage oil. There may be times you could find the treatment uncomfortable, and occasionally some clients may bruise. Please ensure you tell your therapist if you find the treatment too uncomfrtable, or if you bruise easily.

 

After your massage, your will be given a treatment plan for you to carry out at home, including stretches and/or strength-building exercises. Your recovery rate may be affected by negelecting these exercises.

 

While you should notive improvement after your first treatment, most injuries require multiple treatments, especially if your injury is longer-term.
