Sports massage: not just for atheletes!

What is sports massage?

Sports massage is a remedial massage in which the body’s soft tissues are manipulated in order to improve flexibility, enhance performance and reduce the risk of injury. This type of massage focuses on an individual’s specific requirements and can help promote recovery after injury.

Sports massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, to recover after a big event or to function well during training.

You don’t have to be an Olympian to benefit from sports massage; it is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted motion. This deep tissue massage generally concentrates on a specific problem area and is applicable to anybody wishing to guard against or recover from a soft tissue injury.
What Happens During Sports Massage?
Sports massage stimulates circulation of blood and lymph fluids. The type of sports massage we offer at The Wellness Hub focuses on deep tissue rejuvenation and is aimed at alleviating pain due to injury and returning the body to health.
When Should I Get A Sports Massage?
A sports massage is a good choice if you have a specific problem or problem area, for example a sore shoulder caused by lifting weights. With a sports massage the focus will be on the area causing discomfort and not on a full body massage which may include the problem area.
