Promote healing and recovery and improve athletic performance with sports massage.

What is Sports Massage?

Many of us have experienced the aches and pains that can be linked to sports and exercise. This can be a positive sign of your developing strength and fitness. At other times, it may indicate issues that could develop or cause significant discomfort or decreased functionality.

Sports massage is a form of treatment that focuses on the tightness and soreness that training and competing may cause. It also supports recovery and rehabilitation after sports injuries and works towards improving sporting performance.

Various techniques are used by trained and experienced therapists that combine myofascial release, deep and soft tissue massage, and trigger point therapy in a personalised session.

Not only will physiotherapy treat your symptoms for a specific injury, your physiotherapist will provide you with long term health maintenance, and healthcare advice which aims to optimise your quality of life.

How Can Sports Massage Help?

Tending to the muscular tension and tightness that can accompany physical activity may help in a variety of ways. Sports massage may decrease pain, tightness, stiffness, and mobility issues. It also has the potential to improve your sporting performance and decrease the risk of injury.

Sports massage engages the fascia, which is an important part of your connective tissues and plays a crucial role in your movement, function, and healing processes. This focus may promote healing and recovery, allowing your body to gain more benefits from physical activity and sports.

There are various ways in which sports massage may help you. Some of the advantages of this therapy include:

Muscle Relaxation

Various manual therapy techniques encourage tension release and the reduction of body stiffness. This not only increases comfort and mobility but may prevent muscle cramps and spasms.

Improved Circulation

Better blood flow may have a significant impact on recovery due to increased oxygen and nutrients. It also may have positive effects on waste removal.

Increased Range of Motion

Sports massage aims to improve flexibility, release tightness, reduce adhesions, and promote relaxed muscles. This may lead to better overall movement.

Better Posture

Correcting or improving muscle and joint weakness, tightness, or stiffness may lead to improved posture, which can help with comfort levels and performance. Sports massage may also improve your body awareness.

Reduced Scar Tissue

Sports massage may help to minimise the occurrence of scar tissue, which can happen after injuries. This aims to improve recovery outcomes.

Mental Focus

Sports massage may help to reduce stress and promote relaxation and sleep quality. This may help to improve concentration and overall well-being, which might positively affect recovery and performance.

Accelerated Recovery

Sports massage may reduce post-exercise soreness and fatigue, allowing you to return to physical activity confidently and comfortably.

Boosted Immune System

Many people notice a positive link between massage and immune function. This may improve your body’s ability to fight illnesses and infections, allowing you to continue being physically active.

Injury Prevention

Our experienced therapists can assess and identify underlying issues and weaknesses and work towards improving imbalances. Alongside the other benefits of sports massage, this may help to reduce the chance of injuries down the track.
