Why have a Massage

Massage isn’t only for the sports person, anyone can benefit. Occupational, emotional and postural stress can produce symptoms that will respond to massage treatment; it can be also useful to those dealing with muscle strains and other aches and pains.
Sports massage should play an important part in the life of any sports person whether they are injured or not. Massage has a number of benefits both physical, physiological and psychological. Sports massage can improve flexibility of tight muscles, correct imbalances, prevent injuries and loss of mobility, restore mobility to injured muscle tissues, boost performance and extend the overall life of your sporting career.
Some techniques improve circulation enabling muscles to use oxygen and nutrients more effectively which can boost performance. Techniques to promote venous return (the rate of blood flow back to the heart) and lymphatic drainage can help you recover by relieving congestion in the muscles and removing waste products.
Massage can identify areas of tightness you weren’t aware of, nipping potential problems in the bud and preventing injury.
