What is a Sports Massage?

A sports massage is a set of massage techniques that aim to restore mobility, improve circulation, eliminate tension and stiffness, and alleviate pain in muscles and joints. To do so, our professional IMTA registered Masseuse will address deep muscle structures known as fascia.

Sessions last between 30-60 minutes and are completed through hands-on treatments, using massage guns, or a combination of both. This type of therapeutic massage can reach deep into the muscle tissue, providing lasting results.

Despite its name, sports massage isn’t just for athletes or sports enthusiasts. This massage technique can benefit anyone who is struggling with chronic pain, injuries, and with built-up tension. Sports massage can also help people with limited mobility, osteoarthritis, and circulatory problems.

Difference between Deep Tissue & Sports Massage?

Both sports and deep tissue massage use firm pressure to release muscle tension, break down knots and improve mobility and blood circulation. The main difference lies in how specific these types of massages are. Our sports massage in Waterford usually targets specific parts of the body to prevent injuries, help recover from them, or to improve physical performance. This type of massage would suit athletes, people with limited mobility, and those recovering from accidents or trauma.

On the other hand, a PhysioMotion3D deep tissue is usually applied to the general area of the body. As such, it is a good choice for people who are looking to release pain and tension and not necessarily for sports injuries.

What are the Benefits of Sports massage therapy?

Fewer sports injuries

Regular sports massages in Waterford can reduce the risk of suffering an injury during training, workouts, or competition. At PhysioMotion3D, we have noticed that it is particularly true if you practice high-impact sports or follow an intense training programme. If an injury happens, we can address it with therapy.

Improved physical performance

Our Waterford sports massage service can help your body recover faster from the effects of intense exercise. Faster recovery means that your body will stay in optimal condition and your performance will be less likely to be affected. Our services alongside recommended rest times will help with full-body recovery.

Increased mobility

Stretching and relieving tension in deep muscle tissues can bring great improvements in flexibility. When your body is more flexible, your range of motion increases, resulting in improved performance. This is why our experienced team help many of our clients with their mobility through a sports massage in Waterford.

Better knowledge of your body

Our Waterford sports massage experts have noticed that one of the physical benefits of sports massage is that it will help you gain more awareness of your body and its responses. Over time, our clients have learned to identify problematic areas in their body. It is a great way to know which muscles need to strengthen.

It’s important to discuss with your therapist how your body reacts so they can take this into account for future sessions.
