Sports massage applied skilfully is one of the most effective therapies for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculo-skeletal system. Received regularly this may help athletes prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse. A constant build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves.
These muscle imbalances may develop and often go undiagnosed until they are serious enough to cause the athlete discomfort or impede performance. The skilled massage therapist will be able to detect variations in the soft tissues and by using the correct techniques, help the sports person maintain a much healthier physical state.
To benefit from a sports massage you do not need to be a sports performer, the benefits can also help relieve many day to day problems that everyone experiences.
Sports massage sessions available are either an hour or 30 minutes long. It is recommended to book an hour slot initially as the first 10 minutes of the initial consultation is for case history taking.
Caroline and Helen both trained as a sports massage therapists prior to qualifying as Osteopaths and are available to book six days a week. For an appointment, please call The Hayling Clinic (023 9246 0555).
