Athletes, fitness fanatics and sports players often need a restorative massage to relieve tired muscles. A sports massage helps manipulate the soft tissues. It focuses on specific muscle groups usually dependent on the individual and the sport or exercise that he or she engages in. Sports massage is important as it helps prevent and treat injuries, works on muscular imbalances, and improves joint mobility and flexibility. It generally enhances an athlete's performance and recovery. Sports massage may include several massage techniques such as compression, friction, focused pressure point therapy, joint mobilisation, etc.
 
At Balima Day Spa, we recommend our Deep Tissue Massage for active sports players and athletes as this focuses on most of the techniques that a conventional sports massage includes. Our deep tissue massage places emphasis on the deeper layers of muscles, tendons, and tissues like fascia and other supportive tissues. Also providing complete stress relief and mind and body rejuvenation. This massage is also good for injury rehabilitation. It works well on releasing muscle tension and helps improve blood circulation and joint mobility, all important aspects of a sports massage.
 
Many athletes of multiple sports are prone to lower back stress. This massage concentrates on the major muscle groups, including the neck. Also focusing on joints and tendons that are vulnerable to strain or injuries. This massage technique involves the use of firm pressure to reach deeper areas and gentle yet sustained pressure to target the myofascial layer. This massage is ideally suited for chronic muscular pain, injury rehabilitation, and muscle tension release.
 
For a sportsperson, a massage on a regular basis is very important and can be considered a part of your training program. At Balima Day Spa, we recommend our massage therapies depending on the needs of our clients. Get in touch with us to discuss your massage.
