Massage Information

Massage therapy is the practice of using touch to manipulate the soft-tissue muscles of the body. It is performed for a variety of reasons, including treating painful ailments, decompressing tired and overworked muscles, reducing stress, rehabilitating sports injuries, and promoting general health. Clients often seek massage for its medical benefit and for relaxation purposes, and there are a wide range of modalities available.

Sports massage is the systematic manual manipulation of soft-tissues,
designed to produce specific responses in the athlete, and ultimately
improve performance.

Maintenance massage is what the athletes often like the best. It is usually
something to look forward to, is performed in a one to one, relaxed
environment, and attends to the athletes’ current concerns, needs, and
aches and pains.

A stimulating massage is required for sports that require speed, strength and explosive power. For pre event nerves a more calming massage is often welcomed. At this point a well-trained athlete would use massage psychologically rather than physically. In the last hour before the event massage should not suffice as an adequate warm up, only as part of.

Post Event Massage

Most athletes carry out a cooling down routine but often fail to do so after competition because of sheer exhaustion, elation or disappointment.

Massage can be an adequate substitute for a warm down as it can achieve much of thesame effect by removing muscle waste and stretching the tissues.
