Sports Massage

The prime purpose of Sports Massage Therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.

This treatment is not just for the sports person: anyone can benefit from Sports Massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and those not quite so obvious (occupational, emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries).

 

Below are just some of the benefits of receiving a Sports Massage:

  • increased flexibility
  • scar tissue realignment
  • enhanced micro circulation
  • increased tissue permeability
  • stimulates relaxation
  • reduces recovery period following an injury
  • Alleviate delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS)
  • Pain reduction
  • Reduces competition anxiety

 

REDS Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic have a number of qualified Sports Massage Therapists based in Coleford. Sports Massage can prevent injury and aid rehabilitation by facilitating muscle healing and relaxation.

When attending REDS for a Sports Massage you will receive your consultation and massage in a private room. You will be asked to complete a health questionnaire, then just lie back, relax and enjoy the benefits of a Sports Massage!
