Sports massage plays an important part in sportsmen and women whether they are injured or not.
Massage has many physical, physiological and psychological benefits such as:
- Increase blood flow
- Breakdown of scar tissue
- Lenghtening muscles
- Pain reduction
- Increase recovery back to sport
- Anxiety reduction
Anyone can benefit from sports massage - not just athletes. The pressure can vary depending on the injury and the patients request.
Sports massage can be given before an event/race to warm up muscles, as well as after to aid recovery and heal muscles.
