Sports Remedial Massage

By Marelie Mey M.Ost ND DO

Marelie May BODY BACKUPSports massage is a soft tissue treatment and is intended to relax the muscles. It can help with sports/gym strains through assisting the muscles recovery process.

It can also help prepare for sporting events or exercise through promoting blood flow tight muscles that are tight to relax. Deep tissue and sports tissue massage work through encouraging new blood flow and drainage of ‘old’ blood. Various pressure techniques used loosen muscles fibres. This speeds up recovery to encourage better muscle function.

Various elements of Swedish massage are used. Some of the techniques used are “slow and deep”, others include “sustained pressure”. There are also faster and more superficial techniques. The choice depends on the findings and on the individuals response to the techniques.

Sports massage is not only suitable for sporty or active individuals. Sports massage can help those with physically demanding or high- stress jobs or high- stress jobs.
