Sports Massaging

As an avid athlete that has taken part in both the Comrades and Two Oceans marathons, as well as various triathlons, Juan understands the impact that sports can have on one's body. This is why he has committed to helping athletes feel better and find relief through the use of sports massage.

A normal massage is more superficial compared to the deep stimulation of a sports massage. The aim of a normal massage is to alleviate general stress in order to increase circulation and relaxation, working along the muscle surface to relax the body. Whereas a sports massage is more specific, working deeper on muscle fibres with a specific athletic enhancement goal.

Sports Massage is a method of manipulating the soft tissue in order to correct and combat issues in people who are regularly involved in physical activity. The purpose of sports massage is to relieve tension in specific areas in order to keep the muscles supple, promote oxygen and blood supply to them and improve their overall function so that you can reach your full potential.

Sports Massage is not just for athletes though - if you have an active profession or you enjoy physical hobbies, Sports Massage can help you battle muscle fatigue and keep you active for longer. Massage is also an excellent way to manage muscle pain and tension.
