Olympic fever is rife right now in BloomMe HQ- and the rest of the world , it would seem! The run up to the big 2016 Rio games has sent every Tom, Dick and Jane into a fitness frenzy, making the amount of sports related injuries rise rapidly! We think that with all this excitement over the games, and increase in activity, it’s time to relax.
If you’re more Sporty Spice than Posh or Baby, then a sports massage is the best one for you to relieve the tension in your body. But sports massages aren’t exclusively for the fitness fanatics; and if you’re new to the #FitnessLife this type of massage could also be the answer to all your aching pains!
Why a sports massage?
A sports massage focusses on the recovery of muscles and prevention of injuries, so if you’re sporty or even if you’ve got a dodgy knee that’s causing you angst, sports massages are the perfect remedy for soothing aches. Due to their specific nature of sports massages, it’s worth noting that they’re not intended for relaxation, in order to fix a pulled muscle or damaged tendon the therapist will need to stretch the muscle and can be quite painful- but the result and instant relief you feel afterwards is well worth it! Sports massages pin point specific problem areas that you present and various methods are applied to help with each area, and so are extremely person dependant.
