What can I expect from a Sports Massage
Firstly the sports masseuse/masseur will need to ask you precisely what your goals and ambitions are. They will assess your lifestyle, training and working routines. They will assess your body shape including anomolies. A case history of past injuries, illnesses, sports and exercise will be built up. They will screen you for basic health, contraindications to massage. The treatment will consist of a combination of deep soft tissue modalities to seperate the muscle fibres and promote exchange of blood and nutrients to the area. Various forms of advanced stretching techniques are use to finish the session.
How many sessions do I need? This will depend entirely upon your present situation and personal goals. Some people require only one initial session. More benefits will be seen by a course of sessions over a short period followed by regular weekly sessions.
What about home visits? Home visits are possible, however the charges become more substantial. We usually have Sports Masseuses and Masseurs within your area.
