What makes a sports massage different from the type of massage that I would get at a spa?

Many of the same forms of techniques and strokes are utilised in both a regular massage and a sports massage. One of the primary differences between the massage techniques used in the two practices is the fact that sports massage therapists usually perform their massages using a firmer grip than a regular massage therapist.

The deeper strokes utilised in massage therapy are helpful when it comes to assisting the soft tissues of the body into becoming oxidised, optimising them both with a continual flow of nutrients and an efficient way of ridding the body of waste.

If sessions tend to involve more deep and firm strokes, will the massage hurt?

While some of the strokes used in massage therapy may initially feel uncomfortable after they are performed, you will experience a level of relief like you’ve never felt before since the deep tissues have become relaxed.

Are there any reasons why I should not have this done?

There are some conditions that may be present with your body that could indicate that you should not receive a sports massage. Because the massage is of a high intensity, it is crucial to be cautious if you have any health problems. Any open wounds, ruptures of the muscles or the tendons, bursitis or tumours are some things that may prevent you from being able to obtain the benefits of a sports massage.

Do massage and chiropractic complement each other?

Massage is often able to help patients before chiropractic adjustments and makes it easier for chiropractors to move the joints back in position.
