What is Sports Massage?

Sports massage is a type of massage therapy that is specifically designed for athletes and people who are active in sports. It is a deep tissue massage that focuses on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that are used in sports and exercise. Sports massage can be used to improve performance, prevent injuries, and promote recovery.

If you are currently engaging in some form of sports or activity, you are most likely familiar with the joint pain, muscle fatigue and soreness that comes with the territory. Sometimes, these may even develop into recurring issues over time and the sport you love can end up hurting or restricting you in daily life. Today, Sports Massage – a potent combination of the relaxation created by a traditional Swedish massage with the penetrative power of deep tissue techniques, has wide applications for the general public and in particular, everyday athletes and gym warriors as well as professional athletes who lead an active lifestyle and would be able to reap its benefits by including it in their arsenal.

Sports massage is a safe and effective way to improve athletic performance, prevent injuries, and promote recovery. If you are an athlete or someone who is active in sports, consider getting a sports massage on a regular basis. At Core Fitness, sport massage complements our Private Pilates and Physiotherapy services to help you achieve a mobile and pain-free life.
