Sports Massage

 

Whether you are an elite athlete, member of a sporting club or master of your own training regime sports massage can be hidden key to helping you perform at your best and remain injury free.

"Sports massage is the specific application of massage techniques, hydrotherapy protocols, range of motion/flexibility protocol and strength-training principles utilized to achieve a specific goal when treating an athlete." Michael McGillicuddy.

The presentation of a sports massage can vary depending on two factors, when during your training period you have booked in for treatment and why. For example a sport massage pre event as a warm up aid uses different massage techniques and skills than a sports massage during a maintainance period or a post injury sports massage with a rehabilitation focus.
