Sports massage and stretch therapy is typically used before, during & after athletic events. The purpose of a sports massage and stretch therapy is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, relieve swelling, drain away fatigue, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility and prevent injury or help with an injury.
This type of massage can be useful for anyone with chronic pain, injury or range of motion issues and it has stretch therapy within it. When you strenuously and frequently use your muscles like, if you're really into weight-lifting, they can become chronically tight or hypertonic, which can make you more susceptible to tears and pulls.
Relaxing and loosening muscles increases flexibility and range of motion in the joints, and helps to reduce swelling. To put it really simply, making your muscles less stiff is really good for moving them around.
A number of techniques can be combined including but not limited to just remedial massage, deep tissue massage, & myofascial trigger point release as it helps to break down adhesions & improves muscle tone, myofascial release, also PNF stretching which was originally developed as a form of rehabilitation, which is very effective. Stretching can assist in improving range of motion using PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) is a more advanced form of flexibility training, which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle group being targeted.
1: Trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.
2: Myotherapy for fascial release involves applying sustained pressure into the fascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
3: Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a more advanced form of flexibility training, which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle group being targeted. PNF stretching is one of the most effective forms of stretching for improving flexibility and increasing range of motion.
Some Of The Benefits Of A Good Sports Massage
Sports Massage helps increasing the flow of blood and oxygen to your tissues. This allows your body to recover faster from training and perform at its peak.
Most strokes used in sports massage are similar to those utilised in therapeutic massage. What differentiates the two is the goal. Sports massage aims to improve exercise performance and muscle function. Therapeutic massage emphasizes stress relief and well-being.
During a sports massage session, the massage therapist focuses on the muscles and tissues that are overused and stressed.
Most athletes experience increased flexibility and range of motion, greater endurance, and reduced muscle pain after a massage. This therapy helps healing and prevention of injuries, leading to faster recovery. It’s an excellent choice for athletes as well as for people with limited mobility, chronic pain, or injury.
Health benefits include:
Better flexibility and movements within the joints.
Reduced recovery time.
Increased energy and stamina.
Improved mobility and flexibility.
Improved blood flow.
Enhanced sports performance.
Stress and anxiety relief.

Glad Ray was recommended to me, usually quite hesitant on trying someone new. Have always had ongoing issues related to being an athlete. He has made my day to day a lot more manageable with reducing pain, tightness, as well a significant decrease in migraines. Very adaptable with treatment dependant on how your body is feeling. Flexible with times. Easy going and welcoming presence. Would 100% recommend Ray and will continue to see him for his great work. Teaghan 2021 On goggle review
I've been seeing Ray regularly in the lead up to competing in the Tokyo Olympic Games, and his care and communication as a massage therapist is outstanding. Ray is exceptionally friendly, professional, knowledgeable and has tailored to my changing needs week to week with patience and consideration. He's particularly helped with both upper and lower back pain, as well as general aches and pains due to the training load of elite level sport. Would not hesitate in recommending. Thanks Ray!

I've been going to Ray for sports massage, trigger point therapy and stretching for years! He is the only remedial massage therapist I have been to that takes the time to work on my problem areas to release the tension in my muscles which helps in my recovery from weightlifting and keeps me mobile to preform my lifts with full range of movement. Highly recommend! Nicky 2020 on Goggle review
