What are the benefits of sports massage?

Sports Massage has been proven to be effective for releasing and reducing tension in the muscles, improving circulation, encouraging the removal of waste products such as lactic acid and stimulating or suppressing nerve activity.

Massage also helps to relax the body after exercise which can prevent injury. Sports Massage is highly beneficial for those who are prone to over use injuries, as the muscles are allowed to relax and recover fully before the next exercise session; examples of these injuries include golfer's and tennis elbow and throwers shoulder. 

During Treatment:

Your first treatment includes an initial consultation of 10-15 minutes to find out the clients medical history, personal and lifestyle details. Your sports massage will take place in a relaxed, comfortable and calming environment, with relaxing music playing in the background. 

During your massage, your body will be covered at all times with soft towels, with the exception of the area i'm working on. Products will be selected to create your personalized treatment using a massage cream which will be smoothed into your skin.
