Sports massage - what is it?
Put simply, it’s a style of massage that’s designed to get straight to the core of a recurring muscle pain or sports injury. 'While you workout lactic acid builds up around your joints, which is the main cause of the post-exercise discomfort many people experience,' explains Michael. As we’ve discovered stretching this kind of tension out yourself doesn’t always work. The best way to release it is with manually, expertly, applied pressure. 'During your sports massage you’ll be moved into a range of different, supported, positions and your muscles will be manipulated allowing them to recover fully,’ says Michael. Super important if you’re boxing, bootcamping or training hard three times a week or more.
