Sports Massage in Hove

Sports Massage at The Float Spa in Hove, is a specifically designed massage to help sports men and women during training to help alleviate any injuries and prevent injuries.

Sports Massage whilst using massage techniques tends to not be a relaxing form of massage as the massage therapist will work deeper into the muscles and it can feel quite strenuous. 

Sports Massage works by stretching tight muscles, stimulating muscles which are not active and improves the condition of soft tissues.

Benefits of Sports Massage

The aim of a sports massage at The Float Spa is primarily to reduce the stress and tension that can build up in the soft tissues of the body during exercise. 

Benefits of Sports Massage include:

  • increase endurance
  • improve performance
  • reduce the chance of injury
  • reduce recovery time after an injury

What does a sports massage involve?

Before the massage begins, your therapist will talk to you about your health and lifestyle. Which result in your therapist working on the specific areas of concern, you may present with a shoulder injury and the entirety of the sports massage will be focussing on improving this specific area.

Techniques include:

  • soft tissue release: stretching the tissues and muscles
  • neuromuscular technique: targeting trigger points in the nervous system to get rid of pain and tension
  • fascial release: deep, slow kneading used to release the connective tissues around the muscles

You will be expected to move around quite a lot and communicate continually with your therapist so they can respond to how your body is feeling. You might feel some discomfort during a sports massage. Always tell your therapist if you are in any pain.
