Benefits of Sports Massage
Sports Massage Treatments
There are 2 phases of sports massage that our experienced Registered Massage Therapists at Bronte Wellness offer to those seeking this type of treatment.
Pre-sport is meant to warm up the tissues prior to an event, training, or competition. The goal in this phase is to get you game ready. The point of this phase is not to relax your muscles, but to get them ticking with anticipation and have you performing at your best potential. We target and stimulate specific muscle groups in order to increase blood flow, stimulate the brain body connection, and increase muscle tone. By doing this, we encourage greater receptivity of these muscle groups for improved performance, and help facilitate better mental preparation.
Post-sport is all about recovery, ensuring proper healing after intense competition or training to prevent injury. We do this by facilitating proper metabolism of build-up waste products in muscle tissues, ensuring joints stay lubricated, and promoting proper muscle function by lengthening short muscles and relieving you of painful trigger points (knots) that can create barriers to optimal performance.
Your massage treatments are tailored to suit your needs so don’t hesitate to discuss your needs with our highly qualified Registered Massage Therapists. We recognized that everyone is unique and your massage therapy treatments need to suit your needs to optimize your performance and healing.
