Sports massage has an increasing profile in sports medicine, offering benefits
for all kinds of athletes, from elite runners, cyclists and footballers,
to recreational joggers and gym enthusiasts. Sports massage is a deep massage
that really works the muscles and is an extremely effective mechanism for
loosening tight muscles and refreshing aching limbs.
Whether you have sustained an injury and are determined to get back to full fitness or you are in good shape and want to stay that way, massage therapy is the answer:
- Reduce the risk of injuries and help you get back to full fitness;
- Aid recovery from injuries and alleviate muscular discomfort;
- Improve posture and reduce pain (e.g. neck and back problems);
- Relieve niggling aches and pains before serious injuries occur;

Refresh aching muscles and limbs
Treatments can be either relaxing or invigorating, preparing the muscles for competition, or afterwards flushing the toxins out and helping the sore muscles detoxify, realign and heal in preparation for the next bout of action.
Massage therapy helps speed up the body’s own repair mechanism; it treats the underlying biomechanical cause of the problem as well as the symptoms. This is achieved through a combination of deep tissue massage and passive joint stretching.
For those who don’t play sports but perhaps work in an office environment, sitting in the same position for long periods, or carrying out repetitive tasks, sports massage is ideal. From a niggling bad back, aching shoulder or even repetitive strain injuries, sports massage provides relief from discomfort and aids rehabilitation.
