How can Sports Massage Help?
Sports massage therapy services aim to rebalance your body and relieve aches and strains arising from related issues or repetitive strain injuries.
Besides treating sport-related injury, sports physiotherapy can assist patients to develop appropriate strength and flexibility for better sports performance.
Outcome-based Sports Massage
Sports massages are outcome-based which involves the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunction.
Our therapists will conduct an assessment to understand your current health, medical history, and lifestyle habits during your first appointment.
This is so the therapist can find out more and work on your problem areas rather than giving you a full body massage.
Sports Performance and Recovery
Sports massage helps to recover more efficiently after a workout and helps perform better during a race.
It also stimulates blood circulation and lymph fluids, breaking down adhesions or knots in muscles, allowing for a wider range of movement.
Blood circulation is vital for full recovery which ensures injury prevention in the long run.
While our sports massage therapists have gone through additional training or accumulated experience with certain injuries, their area of focus does not lie in rehabilitation.
Remedial massage stimulates the easing of preexisting stiffness and tension as well as the repairing of tissues in the body.
If you are suffering from a musculoskeletal dysfunction, it is important to see a qualified physiotherapist to get your condition assessed before moving on to Sports Massage Therapy.
Aches and Strains
Muscle tension, stress and fatigue can affect all of us, competitively or recreational athletes, busy housewives or stressed executives, specifically.
Many of our clients report feeling those knots being “ironed out” post-massage.
Tight or Tense Muscles
Muscles discomforts can arise due to various reasons – it could be due to poor posture in the office, housework strains that arise from repeated activity such as wringing wet laundry.
Even prolonged use of mobile devices can cause various aches and strains. Likewise, Back and neck aches are becoming a common epidemic in modern society.
Some Frequently Asked Questions
- When Should You Get A Sports Massage?
There are no hard and fast rules as to how often you should get a massage. It depends on the intensity of your training and the propensity for your muscles to tighten up. High-level competitive athletes get massaged once a day to help them recover from an intense training session. Other athletes get a massage 1-2 times every week.
- Should you get one before an event?
Yes, you can. However, do let your massage therapist know so that he or she can avoid going full on with the massage. Too intensive a massage will result in your muscles being too relaxed. This effect muscle recruitment later during your event. You will experience a lack of power and slower firing of the muscles. A full deep sports massage is fine 48 hours before your event. For pre-event massages, like an hour before the event is usually light and aims to limber up the muscles. Not relax it as in the usual sports massage sessions.
