Although sports massage techniques are used as part of a rehabilitation therapy, I also offer it as a stand alone treatment for individuals, organisations and clubs.
There are three main categories this usually falls into...
To open up the muscle fibres, increase the blood flow and motor neuron communication to the muscles and generally prepare the body for the rigours of training and competing.
To help flush out toxins built up which can lead to muscle fibre damage and injury. And to encourage new blood flow and nutrients to help with repair.
To keep muscles joints and connective tissue in optimum condition, and help to avoid accumulative injuries like RSI and occupational related defects from occurring.
