If you’re a professional athlete, it’s imperative to ensure you’re consistently ‘in shape’. Besides your fitness levels, this also includes both treating and preventing injuries, and making sure your muscles are ready for an intense session at any point in time.

Our deep tissue sports massage therapists at RLabs are able to effectively and efficiently work with you to create a tailored sports massage plan that optimises your performance. Sports massage increases the blood flow and flexibility of your muscles, as well as allowing you to recover from DOMS (delayed-onset muscle soreness) and get back in the gym quicker.

Sports massage increases athletic performance by allowing muscles to repair faster, reducing fatigue and improving muscle flexibility.

03 / Reduces pain

If you have an injury and the area is inflamed, sports massage can help by increasing blood flow to the area, encouraging the muscles to repair, reducing swelling and draining excess fluid.

Take the time to treat your body properly with the respect it deserves – after all, you’ve only got one.

Have some questions?

What’s the difference between sports massage and remedial massage?

The main difference between sports and remedial massage is that remedial massage can be focused on any area of the body (usually any area the client indicates), whereas sports massage is more focused on sports performance and, therefore, the areas of the body that correlate to this e.g. the knees, shoulders and ankles.

 

How often should I have a sports massage?

How often you book in for a sports massage appointment at RLabs will depend on your unique goals. If you’re wanting to generally increase your sporting performance and muscle flexibility, you might book in for four sessions a week apart. If you’re wanting to treat a specific injury or condition, you may need to have massages more frequently and for a longer period of time.
