Sports Massage in Bath

Located in central Bath, Hybrid Health offers high quality Sports Massage to treat a number of issues. Sports massage is used for general relaxation of the muscular skeletal system as well as being directed towards any problem areas.

Sports Massage is a type of massage that stimulates circulation of blood and lymph fluids.

It was designed for athletes to help develop and prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recovery and flexibility.

 

It is especially useful for anyone with chronic pain, injury or range of motion issues or just general demands of life and it can also improve posture and promote a greater sense of well-being.

How does Sports Massage work?

 

During a Sports Massage, our trained therapists use a variety of techniques to target specific areas of the body that are experiencing tension or pain. These techniques may include deep tissue massage, stretching, and trigger point therapy. By applying pressure to these areas, the therapist can help release muscle tightness, improve flexibility, and reduce the risk of injury.

 

Additionally, Sports massage can help increase blood flow to the muscles, which can aid in the removal of waste products and promote healing. This improved circulation can also help reduce inflammation and speed up the recovery process after intense physical activity.

Benefits of Sports Massage

 

There are numerous benefits to incorporating sports massage into an athlete's training regimen. Some of the key benefits include:

 

  • Improved flexibility and range of motion

  • Reduced muscle soreness and tension

  • Enhanced athletic performance

  • Quicker recovery time after workouts or competitions

 

Research has shown that regular sports massage can help athletes prevent injuries, improve their overall performance, and maintain their physical health over the long term.

Sports Massage and Rehabilitation

Sports massage is proven to release and reduce tension in muscles, which improves circulation and encourages the removal of lactic acid during high intensity activity. 

If you play sports or exercise regularly, you should consider combining adding regular Sports Massage to your fitness routine. Sports massage can play a crucial role in enhancing an athlete's performance. By increasing blood flow to the muscles, it helps to improve oxygen and nutrient delivery, which can enhance endurance and reduce fatigue.

 

Additionally, sports massage can help to improve flexibility and range of motion, allowing athletes to move more efficiently and effectively. 

 

It can also help by reducing the chance of muscle injury in future, enabling you to train better for longer.

What is the difference between a massage and a sports massage?

A regular massage, also known as a Swedish massage, focuses on relaxation and overall well-being. It involves long, flowing strokes, kneading, and gentle pressure to help release tension in the muscles and promote relaxation. This type of massage is perfect for those looking to unwind and de-stress.

On the other hand, a sports massage is specifically designed for athletes and individuals with active lifestyles. It involves a combination of techniques such as deep tissue massage, stretching, and trigger point therapy to address muscle soreness, improve flexibility, and enhance athletic performance. Sports massage therapists are trained to target specific muscle groups that are overused or injured due to physical activity.

Sports massage is a specialised form of massage therapy designed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training.
