A sports massage is perfect for the treatment of injuries, whether they are sports related or not, and is ideal for encouraging healthy muscles and their connective tissue. The manipulation of soft tissue can help to reduce any pain you may be struggling with, it will release tension and eventually, you should experience the restoration of any range of movement you may have lost.
As a preventative treatment, it can encourage happy, healthy muscles and tissues, this, in turn, will help with the tone and balance of your muscles and your overall posture.
You don’t need to be a sportsperson to benefit from this deeply relaxing and beneficial massage. If you are experiencing discomfort or stiffness from any activity you may have been doing then the combination of techniques involved in Sports massage will be of huge benefit to you.
Gardening, walking, decorating, there is a wide range of activities and overexertion that can cause us to pull or tweak muscles in our bodies (I pulled a muscle in my shoulder while I was taking my wheelie bin to the bottom of the drive the other week, and it wasn’t even full) we never know when or how we’re going to hurt ourselves, but when we do Julie is on hand to help us on the road to recovery. Either in your home or at her clinic at 16 Castlegate, Clitheroe, BB7 1AZ (above Up and Running).
Sports massage is actually based on the technique used in Swedish massage. Where the sports treatment can be very deep and intense involving stretching, compression and friction, Swedish massage concerns itself with the superficial layers of your muscles.
As well as the treatment or prevention of a specific injury this type of massage will promote increased blood flow around your body, it will help to revitalise you with a greater physical and mental relaxation, it should help to relieve some of the stress and tension you are carrying in your muscles and may even result in an improved range of motion.
The Benefits of Massage
Massage therapy is a relatively safe form of treatment, it should negate the need for harmful painkillers and their side effects.
Treatments will last for between 30 and 60 minutes and will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated!
