Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is a hands-on treatment used on the body’s soft tissues to improve health and overall well-being, promote healing and injury recovery, improve flexibility and ease pain caused by muscle tightness. There are many different types of Massage Therapy methods available.

 

What is Massage Therapy?
 

Our sports massage therapy in Cardiff involves manipulating the muscles, tendons, ligaments and associated connective tissues.

This is intended to correct problems and relieve tension in these areas, which can lead to pain and restricted range of motion when left untreated.

The issues usually arise as a result of repetitive motions over a long period of time, especially if those motions are also strenuous.

Trauma, such as being involved in an accident, may also damage these areas (which are known as soft tissues), and patients may benefit from sports massage after experiencing physical trauma. ‚Äč

 

What are the benefits of Massage Therapy?
 

Whether you are training for a competitive event or simply want to ease tight or sore muscles, Massage Therapy offers a number of benefits, including:

– releasing muscle tension and relieving pain

– improving flexibility

– managing niggles and minor injuries

– reducing recovery time after exercise

– aligning posture

Why Get a Sports Massage?
 

If you play sports or exercise regularly, any serious athlete or physio will tell you that you need to be combining your fitness routine with regular Sports Massage.

Regular massages will reduce your risk of injury, improve your recovery time post-workout, enable you to exercise more frequently, and make sure any little tweaks or niggles don’t turn into something bigger and nastier.

 

Is Sports Massage Right for Me?
 

The name Sports Massage defines an overall approach to massage therapy, rather than something that's exclusively for sportsmen and women.

Though it has been primarily designed to help improve performance and reduce pain and injury in sport, fitness and exercise, its results-driven approach makes it highly effective for people from all walks of life, particularly for anyone looking to improve flexibility, ease tight or painful muscles or combat postural or musculoskeletal pain – whether from an every day injury or simply (and frequently) from spending long hours at a desk.

Sports Massage techniques can also be used to reduce the impact of previous injuries, and the resulting scar tissue or inelasticity that may be impacting on your body’s ability to heal or move properly.

At PhysioSpace, we provide Sports Massage for everyone from runners, triathletes, tennis players, footballers, cricketers and golfers, to weekend warriors, busy mums and time-poor executives.
