Sports Massage Therapy for Melbourne Athletes
As the name suggests, sports massage treatments are focused more towards athletes, whether amateur or elite. Whether you’re an occasional weekend cyclist or live in the saddle, the therapists at The Cycling Fix will ensure that you receive a tailored treatment program centred on your body’s specific needs and your goals as an athlete.
We’ve played a key role in helping people of all experience and ability levels accomplish their goals, from completing their first triathlon to shaving seconds off a time trial time. We work as a partner with you in your health, helping you better understand how different parts of your lifestyle impact your body’s performance. We can give you simple, easy to follow advice that will help you take care of your body and ensure that you get the most from yourself on race day.
Why sports massage?
Sports massage is useful both before and after a race or event, helping to prepare the body for both exertion and the healing process. Sports massage is useful for both pre-event preparation and post-event recovery. Our therapists will tailor their treatment depending on your requirements and lifestyle, ensuring that your body is on the right path.
A sports massage before an event can greatly assist with:
- 1. Increasing blood flow and oxygen to muscles
- 2. Stimulating the nervous system to encourage the athlete into their optimum performance zone
- 3. Reducing any residual tension from training
Sports massage is also extremely valuable after an event to:
- 1. Diffuse and flush out lactic acid build up in the muscles to reduce tension and DOMS (Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness)
- 2. Calm the athlete's nervous system to promote rest, recovery and muscle healing
Treatment time: 1 hr
