Regular massage has been shown to assist with:
Decreased pain and adhesion breakdown
Encourage recovery & fight fatigue
Reduce natural tension build up
relax the body and nervous system

Our team can assist you with your massage needs during your training periods.
Training Management Massage is best suited to all sports and activity.
Regular treatment will help keep adhesions at bay, assist you with pre-empting any potential injury and providing the much-needed recovery during big blocks of endurance training.
The beginning of peak week is your best time to achieve this as training is less intense and as you are cutting water, massage will help further flush toxins.
Leading into competition, massage at the start of your tapering period is ideal as you have a few additional days of recovery before your event.
A potential of accumulated months of training have well and truly paid off on your big day, you have smashed out your best effort yet! …And now your sore!
Post event Massage helps move on lactic acid, helps the body aid in recovery, breaks down adhesions built up during the event and in some people may assist in any delayed onset of muscle soreness
After a large endurance such as an ironman event we recommend waiting at least 3 days before getting in a full massage. This is when we consistently find we get the best results, If your competing in a marathon or a distance shorter, next day massage is fine
Strength athletes are fine to be massaged the day after their event.
