Sports massage to improve performance and for injury rehabilitation
Whether you are a professional athlete, an amateur sportsperson or simply enthusiastic about fitness, a sports massage from Peak Physique is an accessory as fundamental as running shoes to a sprinter or a racket to a tennis player.
It is important to remember that the most complex and fragile instrument in sports is your own body and that you must care for and maintain it above all else.
Sports Massage uses deep tissue massage and a range of techniques for relief of muscular pain, facilitating movement and improving performance in your chosen sport. It is particularly appropriate for individuals who suffer from: shoulder and neck pain – back pain – limited mobility – sports injuries – repetitive strain injury – posture problems – arthritis – fibromyalgia – muscle tension- stress- headaches-anxiety.
What is sports massage?
Sports massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, ligaments and tendons. It has developed over the years to deal with the specific conditions that the human body experiences before and after being ‘pushed to the max’. When injury to muscle tissue occurs the muscle fibres will often misalign themselves whilst healing.
Is it just for sports people?
No! Because sports massage assists the healing and rehabilitation of injuries and dysfunction it becomes just as relevant to anyone who is experiencing discomfort with their muscles, whether that be an office worker, crippled by an unsuitable desk arrangement or an Olympic athlete suffering a torn hamstring!
