What is sports massage
Active sports people know how important it is to look after their bodies well, after all, when you’re injured you can’t play. Sports Therapy with Annette Wrigley & Suzannah Blackwell at the Cenacle Treatment Centre will help you to be your best.
Massage is an essential part of any sports treatment regime. It stimulates the circulation, releases toxins and helps to keep the muscles lengthened. It can be tailored to suit your needs, whether that’s a pre-event warm-up or a thoroughly relaxing post-session treatment aligning muscle fibres and removing lactic acid.
For recovery from injury, a more specific programme is needed. Gentle massage can still be useful to maintain circulation and muscle tone, especially if you have to break your training while you recover.
Particularly useful for:
Runners’ calves and hamstrings
Ankles and knees that feel restricted even after recovery from injury
Footballers’ groin strains
Cricketing shoulders, esp bowlers
Tennis players’ elbows and wrists
