Anyone taking part in regular physical activity, whether at professional, competitive, amateur level or just for fun, will almost certainly encounter soft tissue problems of one sort or another at some time. The principal aims of Sports Massage are to help prevent injury, aid recovery after an event, and to enhance sporting performance.

Sports Massage uses similar techniques to clinical  massage and is an effective and beneficial form of physical therapy for active sports people. It involves working on the soft tissues of the body and isolating individual muscles or muscle groups using specific and specialised techniques. Deeper pressures may be used and it can take account of the type of sport being played by either being very focused on particular areas of the body, or more general, depending on the goals and outcomes required.

Categories of sports massage:

Pre-event - which an athlete receives just before a workout, event or competition to assist with warming up muscles, and maintaining flexibility.

Post-event - delivered very shortly after a workout, event or competition and designed to assist with cooling-down, reducing soreness and  relieving cramps.

Recovery - which can be received at least 24 hours after a workout, event or competition to reduce soreness, increase range of motion, promote lymphatic drainage and blood flow and reestablish balance.

Maintenance - used between competitions or events, or when an athlete is not training hard. This may be a deeper, more focused massage and aims to maintain fitness, deal with any chronic injuries, increase flexibility and help build strength.

Injury management - this includes treating acute and chronic injuries as well as rehabilitation. The intention of this type of Sports Massage is to decrease swelling and inflammation, reduce muscle spasms, and increase strength, endurance and flexibility.

A regular programme of Sports Massage may include a combination of some or all of the above. Physical and mechanical effects of Sports Massage are to relieve muscle tension, mobilise muscle fibres, improve flexibility, stretch soft tissues, reduce swelling and inflammation, loosen adhesions, and improve circulation.
