Sports massage is an invigorating treatment to prepare, maintain, enhance performance and prevent injury for athletes and anyone who regularly exercises or works out.

Deep tissue, neuromuscular massage techniques (Muscle Energy Techniques (MET), Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). Post Isometric Relaxation (PIR), Soft Tissue Release (STR),  Trigger Pointing, myofascial Release) are employed to warm tissues, improve circulation, increase flexibility and enhance performance prior to exertion, while more relaxing methods are used post-event to cool down and  return the body to its natural homeostatic balance; reducing residual cortisol and lactic acid levels in the blood, while aiding the elimination of toxins to prevent Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), fatigue and spasms.

The massage is diagnostic in nature, to feel for strains and adhesions and pre-empt and remedy issues with biomechanics, poor technique and unsuitable footwear etc.

Sports injuries can be caused by:

  • an accident;
  • not warming up properly before exercising;
  • using inadequate equipment or poor technique;
  • pushing yourself too hard (overtraining);
  • an overuse injury (repetitive strain).
