Sports & Therapeutic Massage
Sport & Therapeutic Massages in Rye
Sports & Therapeutic Massages often have the very specific goal of obtaining a therapeutic benefit. While they can often be very relaxing and simply used as a form of deep relaxation, the end goal is frequently different from the more traditional “relaxation” type of massage.
While the exact objectives of a sports or therapeutic massage will vary depending on each individual’s requirements, common cases will be to improve muscle tone, increase flexibility, loosen muscles or to prevent (or recover) from sporting injuries.
Sports massage is a popular form of treatment for soft tissue injuries and can play an important role in the life of any professional or amateur sportsman or woman. The massage itself has a number of holistic advantages including physical, physiological and psychological benefits. It can help maintain the body, prevent injuries, boost performance and extend the overall life of a sporting career.
Therapeutic massage has also been used for many years as a way to relieve muscle tension that relaxes both the mind and body. It can be used to reduce the symptoms associated with stress, while calming the nervous system, improving concentration, relieving aching muscles and strengthening the immune system.
The technique uses a variety of stroking, kneading, pressure and flowing movements over the body to treat a diverse range of complaints, or can be used to increase energy levels by invigorating the body’s natural systems.
