Sports Massage

Are you a professional or amateur athlete, body builder, or just somebody who regularly exercises for fitness and health?  

Sports massage is all about performance. Whether you're training or competing you're muscles are working hard and need maintenance. Like a car engine, with heavy use, wear and tear occurs requiring us to get the engine serviced. 
Muscles under constant use develop micro-tears. This is how our body builds muscle and strength. The down side is we need to stretch and care for the muscles as the micro-tears heal and build the muscle body. Unfortunately we sometimes don't stretch enough or we overload the muscle and the micro-tears build into scar tissue that limits the muscles range, reflex and strength. Sports massage is about correcting this damage, re-lengthening the muscle, realigning the fibres, improving the circulation through the muscle body and promoting the muscle to recover properly.  

When, and why?
Sports massage varies depending on when you seek it. South Gippsland Massage Therapy offers the complete range of sports specific massage including:
  • Game Day / Event Massage - Pre-event, Inter-event, and Immediate Post Event massages.
  • Pre and Immediate Post Training massages
  • Training supportive massages
  • Post-event massage - conducted 2 or more days after a heavy event to promote recovery
