  • Sports massage can be beneficial from a preparatory, maintenance or recovery perspective. For example if you train regularly throughout the week scheduling regular massages could help you recover quicker and more efficiently between sessions. If you have a particular area that often gives you those bothersome niggles then a massage could be what is needed to keep them at bay. If you have specific events throughout the year then receiving a massage prior to them could be of beneficial addition to your preparation routine. Equally, if after an event you find yourself struggling to get down the stairs then a sports massage may be what you need to get back to normal quicker!
