Here is what the Bespoke Therapy team can offer: Pre-event Massage: Before a training session or event you need a quick treatment that will compliment your warm-up, to increase your circulation and flexibility and leave your muscles resilient and ready to go. This can be very specific work on a known problematic muscle or more general. This also provides an excellent opportunity to psyche yourself up before your event. We will use very specific techniques, which provide quick results and ensure the muscles are ready for exercise. Post-event: After a hard training session or event this type of deep tissue massage that will increase your circulation to speed up the removal of toxins, relieve your muscle spasms and prevent soreness.
Fine-tuning you need a regular massage that will search out the areas of biomechanical stress in your muscles and relieve them before they become problems, enabling you to train harder and more consistently. Injury Rehabilitation: For Injury Rehabilitation you need a massage that will speed your healing, increase your range of motion and reduce scar tissue to allow the muscle to expand/contract normally. There is no reason to carry soreness and stiffness from your last session, race or game into the next bout of activity. By taking measures to speed your recovery following exertion you can reach a higher level next workout. Sports massage provides an ingredient for that complete recovery.
Adding sports massage to your workout routine can seriously improve your performance. As the training hours pile up, so do the aches and pains. These little aches and pains can turn into a serious injury. Regular bodywork will help alleviate pain. You can benefit from a half an hour deep tissue massage on a specific area that you feel needs attention or longer for more general and maintenance work. Sports massage techniques, when used regularly, can increase the blood flow that is needed for recovery. It will improve the range of motion and strength of injured muscles and accelerate their healing process. With a full recovery, you will be able to increase your workouts and allow your body to adapt to a higher level of stress.
