Whatever your sport, whatever your level, regular sports massage helps maintain good muscle condition and improves flexibility.
In the video below you can see Benedetta demonstrating various massage techniques for loosening off a tight or stiff calf and Achilles tendon.
There are six main benefits of sports massage:
- Preventing injuries
- Speeding up recovery from injury
- Enhancing sports performance
- Quality rest on days off
- Pre-event tune-up
- Post event recovery
Regular sports massage can be a tremendous supplement to serious training, allowing you to train a high level but much more safely.
During the massage the client is unclothed beneath a towel. Only the area of the body being worked on is uncovered.
Sports injury massage
Sports massage uses specific deep tissue massage techniques to help the body recover from the physical stresses of training and competition. It helps prevent the build-up of lactic acid and is an effective aid to recovery from soft tissue injuries.
Benedetta is an experienced sports massage therapist and marathon runner. She will support your training and advise on stretching and other self help techniques.
