Recovery * Rebalancing * Relieving * Prevention
Sports Massage - is a specific type of massage that uses deeper techniques to treat a range of problems, primarily by releasing and rebalancing muscles and tendons. Consider a sports massage as part of your recovery routine alongside good nutrition, stretching and rest. Sports massage can be used to speed up recovery and assist in preventing further injuries. In addition to relieving knots and tension, both before and after training, other important benefits include increasing blood flow to the muscles which helps carry protein and nutrients for repair.
