Sports Massage

Whether you’re a professional athlete, weekend warrior, or someone who enjoys staying active, sports massage can be a valuable tool in your health and fitness regime.

Sports Massage is a deep tissue treatment that can help alleviate muscular aches and pains whether obtained from bad posture, sports injuries and fatigue or simply a bad night’s sleep!

There are three main techniques in sports massage. Effleurage, petrissage and frictions. The majority of these techniques are aimed to be used in the direction of the heart, in keeping with the direction of venous and lymphatic flow. However, sometimes it is necessary for cross sectional techniques in order to stretch and pull the fibres (these techniques are used briefly).

Trigger pointing and myofascial release can also be used which can involve focal points of pressure and very light superficial pulling. Hacking and cupping techniques are also used which are highly stimulating and help warm the muscles up.
