What is a Sports Massage?

Sports massage is a form of massage involving soft tissue manipulation to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity. Soft tissue is the connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines and ensheathes the other soft tissues). Massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue caused by repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.

When you should look at getting a Massage.

At Flex Health we recommend having a sports massage once a week if you exercise multiple times a week. Types of regular exercise may include going to the gym, your favourite spinning class, or going for a 5km run. You can have a massage before or after the event.

How often you have a massage will depend on how it makes you feel and the benefits you personally get from it.
