How can Sport Massage help?

Sports massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissues that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity, such as running.

The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury. Following traumatic injury, sports massage may also enhance and improve the quality of soft tissue healing.

For every runner at any level, a sports specific massage can be beneficial at various stages of participation. For example:

  • The conditioning / training phase
  • Pre competition
  • Inter competition
  • Post competition
  • Post travel
  • Injury prevention
  • Injury recovery

Steven will be able to identify anyone for whom sports massage would be ill-advised or detrimental to their short or long-term well being. He will assess each individual and provide the appropriate massage techniques, and advise on alternative action if required.
