Sports massages get mixed reviews, and some of the ‘hype’ may not be true, causing many fears which will stop a person trying to become ‘pain free’ in fear of the ‘unknown’.
Did you know that your body is great at telling you what it needs, you only need to listen. It will even let you know when it needs a massage. Your body will indicate when it is tired, weary and full of tension but it cannot tell you what type of massage would be best.
I am an integrated therapist with many years of experience under my belt. Overtime, I have been asked many weird, wonderful and unusual questions, regarding my line of work and how I feel about certain aspects of it. Some are so commonly asked, that I have been able to recollect them and have put them down on paper for you to read.
You have been out on a run and somehow pulled a calf muscle, tendon or maybe even trapped a nerve but you are literally days away from an event and you need help so that you can still participate in your sports event.
