how can sports massage help?
Increasing blood flow through the tissues can improve the recovery process, helping the lymphatic system to flush toxins from the body. This helps increase recovery times and allows the athlete to train more effectively and safely.
Increasing knowledge of deep tissues means advice can be given on specific stretching, training and equipment to help improve performance.
Helps prevents injury
Imbalances and damage in deep tissues can be detected earlier and potentially corrected before an injury develops.
Through deep tissue massage an athlete can learn to monitor their own condition and adjust their training accordingly.
Pre-event sports massage can stimulate circulation, calm nervous tension and help prepare the athlete for optimal performance.
What happens when I visit a therapist for the first time?
Normally your first will last an hour. During this time, the therapist will take a full case history and may ask you to remove some of your clothes, providing privacy for you to do so. Tell your therapist if you feel uncomfortable about this, or if you would like a chaperone. Anyone under the age of 16 is required to have a parent or guardian present. If you have further questions please don't be afraid to ask. You will be asked to complete a questionnaire to establish if you have any conditions which may prevent treatment being possible (contraindications). If you have a medical condition it may be necessary to get clearance from your GP.
Post Massage Care
After the massage it is important to increase your water intake to re-hydrate the body and flush the body of toxins. The therapist may provide specific post-treatment advice customised to the requirements of the condition presented.
