Sports Massage

What is Sports Massage?

Sports Massage is a type of therapy that is aimed at treating athletes and training individuals to prevent or mitigate the risk of injury by manipulating the injured soft tissue muscles which can improve performance in their respective sport.

Soft tissue problems can be more prevalent in athletes due to repetitive, vigorous and high physical activity. The desired outcome of Sports Massage is to optimise movement and aid in recovery and injury management. Massage techniques can vary and change depending on the outcome, type of sport, stage of training and timing of sports events (pre& post).

Who can benefit from a Sports Massage?

Sports Massage can be beneficial for individuals who are looking to increase:

Performance

Mobility

Range of motion

Sports Massage can also be beneficial for individuals who are looking to decrease:

Sporting Injuries

Recovery time

A restricted range of motion

What if you’re not an athlete?

Sports Massage can benefit anyone from an elite athlete to a morning walker. For example, you could be a football player who is sore from playing your last game, or an individual who has pain in their feet from walking. This style of massage can assist by improving mobility in order to get maximum output during performance. It also aids in effective injury prevention and management.

Does it hurt?

How a person tolerates Sports Massage can vary from person to person. However, regular maintenance may assist in reducing any discomfort that may be experienced during sessions. If discomfort is experienced, your Massage Therapist will work with you to manage this appropriately.

How often should I get a Sports Massage?

The frequency of Sports Massage will depend on how often an individual trains. Depending on the training regime/s, athletes may benefit from weekly sports massages for injury prevention and management. Individuals who engage in everyday exercise such as gym workouts, running and/or walking may benefit from a Sport Massage every two to four weeks in accordance with individual needs, to aid in recovery and movement efficiency.

Testimonials

  • I had tried other types of treatments for my horrible neck and lower back pain in the past and gave up until I got a remedial massage from James. He works miracles and is always so respectful and professional.

    Rebecca
  • James @ R.E.V. Your Life has worked wonders to alleviate the knot and tightness in my shoulders and I always walk out feeling so much better than when I went in. He has a wealth of knowledge and I usually come out of the sessions with some tips and tricks that I can use at home!

    Sarah
  • James has been able to increasingly reverse my neck and shoulder pain in the short time of one year. I am now 100% confident in my posture and have minimal to no neck and shoulder pain thanks to ongoing treatments with James @ R.E.V. Your Life.

    Kerri
  • I was recommended that I see James @ R.E.V. Your Life for a Remedial Massage after visiting other massage therapists for my neck problems. It was a huge relief to be able to turn my head at a decent range without experiencing so much stiffness in my neck.
