Sports Massage is an increasingly popular type of massage. Athletes, both professional and amateur, as well as individuals benefit from this type of treatment given to its great benefits. A sports massage on a regular basis can help prevent injuries by improving muscular fitness.
During sports event’speriods, participants tend to have regular treatments in order to prevent muscles from getting injured during the competitions and to improve overall muscular performance.
Pre-event Massage is normally given any time prior the competition, ideally between a maximum of 5 days to a minimum of 2 hours before. A pre event prepares the body’s muscles to the intensity of the event, it stimulates the muscularsystem and focuses on the main muscle groupsused during the event.
Post-event Massage assists the athlete’s muscles during the warming down process, giving the body the ability to come out the fight and flight mode. The treatment provides a similar effect to a warming down routine session and it is done soby stretching the muscular tissue and removing waste such as lactic acid and dead cells form muscles.
The treatment path
Evaluation (by looking and asking questions)
Palpation (feeling local areas with finger tips)
Cross fibre massage
Along fibre massage
Muscle Energy Technique (MET)
Most common Sports injuries include:
Rotator Cuff Injuries (Shoulder rotator muscles)
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Runner’s Knee (Illio-tibial band syndrome)
Tennis Elbow (Lateral epicondylitis)
Golfers Elbow (Medial epicondylitis)
Torticollis (Neck injury)
These are some of the techniques we use to manage and treat pain and injuries.
Injuries, pain… all these conditions can be caused by various factors. Some are just work-related and others are due to postural issues and sports activities.
Sports activities aren’t always the cause of injuries, but when our bodies are exposed to high speed/strenuous exercise in combination with other factors such as flat feet, bad shoulder posture or slouching, can cause some of the following:
poor shoulders rotation
lower, middle and upper back pain
A sports massage treatment can make a great difference in the way muscles get re-positioned. During a sports massage treatment, muscles tackled on a singular basis ( one muscle at a time), increasing the blood inside the muscle to circulate out thus allowing fresh blood with nutrients and oxygen to enter the muscle which, combined with the right pressure, will allow muscles to deal with tension, knots and tightness.

Deep tissue massage is a technique designed to relieve severe tension in a muscle, a group of muscles like quadriceps or hamstrings, fascia, like iliotibial band or achilles tendon and connective tissue, like the sheath around every muscle.
We can describe Deep tissue massage as a treatment on the body which goes below superficial connective tissue with the aim of breaking up unusual structural patterns and allows nutrients to flow freely, along with oxygen in the blood.
During a Deep treatment, the therapist will apply a considerable amount of pressure over the affected area, which it can cause some discomfort for a very short period of time, normally 3-10 seconds, depending on the muscle and how tense the area is.
BENEFITS OF DEEP TISSUE
Increases range of motion of limbs by restoring mobility
Relaxes and sooth muscles
Breaks up scar tissue due to injury
helps muscles to stay flexible
WHO MAY BENEFIT FROM DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Athletes (weekend athletes as well)
Individuals with chronic joint or muscle injuries
Individuals that perform repetitive work that causes considerable strain on muscles and joints
Individuals who suffer from stress
Deep tissue massage should not be painful but pressure will be relatively strong, the areas that will be more sensitive to this treatment will be around the shoulder blades, calf muscles and hamstrings.
On average, people who do sports will benefit from a deep tissue massage as this will evenly sort out any tension from a muscle group, including tendons and ligaments.
On cyclists (hamstrings and calves)
Runners (quadriceps, calves, achilles tendon and glutes)
Swimmers (rotator calves, hamstrings)
Not only indicated for sports people, deep tissue massage is also beneficial for anyone dealing with muscular tightness given that some lifestyle injuries, or misalignments, can cause muscles to shorten or even create knots and adhesion (which takes place when the muscle sheaths stuck to one another)
in our case, sports massage will include deep tissue strokes as part of the treatment, as a method of preparing the muscles prior manipulation.
