About Sports Massage Therapy

The ultimate short term goal of sports massage therapy is to get you, the athlete, into prime condition before events or competitions. Long term sports massage therapy can assist in prolonging one’s career and maintain optimum health and full range of motion for many years ahead. Ensure you find a therapist that listens to your needs, understands your requests and responds to your needs as your body adjusts to every treatment.

Sports massage therapy is key to gaining an edge over your competitors, trimming those few seconds from your race time and simply to prevent injury. At Harbour clinic a sports massage is not simple a deep tissue treatment. There are key points to consider before the application of such techniques. These techniques include kneading, compression, effleurage, cross – fibre friction, stretching, shaking and petrissage just to name a few, and should be used accordingly to either pre or post events.

Sports massage therapy differs from total body massage, in that the entire treatment can focus on one area such as your shoulder or back. Our skilled therapists have a broad range of techniques to specifically target and match each individual’s body composition, activities, age, fitness level and personal training goals.

Can sports massage really help me with an old injury?

The benefits of massage will depend on the extent of the injury, how long ago it occurred and on the skill of the therapist. Chronic and old injuries often require deeper and more precise treatments with less emphasis on relaxation and working on the whole body. Tight and fibrous muscles not only hurt at the muscle or tendon, but can also interfere with proper joint movement and cause pain far away from the original injury. The sad truth is we all experience more aches and pains as we get older and old injuries can come back to haunt us, with more frequent flare ups or repeated strains. The correct application of sports massage for chronic or old injuries can help break down any scarring and adhesions that may have never been treated correctly in the first place. Sports massage will help soften, lengthen and tone the injured site as a prelude to developing a leaner, healthier body.

A little piece of history!!
