Lower Stress, Improve Mental Health
A sports massage helps you relax and de-stress your muscles from working out. The gym can be a grind, motivation can dip, and sore muscles can be annoying. That’s where a sports massage can help.
Pete, our professional sports massage therapist, will talk to you about your exercise routine, what your goals are, and how a regular massage can help you with your mental health and general well-being.
Losing weight and toning your body shape is stressful: tracking your calories, eating some foods that your previous self might consider “boring”, and being a little sore after your workout sessions. You’re putting a lot of effort into changing your body shape to the new and improved you, so why not have a sports massage to relax those muscles and de-stress your mind to feel calm, collected, and happy?
You will feel re-energised and more focused on your health and fitness goals by having a regular sports massage at Masters Fitness.
How Does It Work?
As with all health and well-being services offered at Masters Fitness, we start with an assessment to understand more about you and your body.
Our local professional sports therapist, Pete, will assess areas of discomfort, analyse your workout schedule and listen to your day-to-day activities. Then, he will devise a plan that complements your workout schedule and overall health and fitness goals.
During your massage time, you might find that the deep tissue massage technique hurts a little. Similar to DOMS after your workouts, this is all part of the way the body repairs itself to tone and shape that future body shape.
Having a regular sports massage in East Lancashire can help your muscles feel less stressed and painful, and encourage you to stick to your time at the gym.
Massage & Exercise Benefits
Sports massage helps individuals recover quicker from having sore muscles from training at the gym.
During your massage session, Pete will check how strong the pressure is and whether there are parts of your body that require more concentration than others. This ensures you look forward to your future sports massage sessions.
Pete will work with your personal trainer at Masters Fitness to ensure you receive the best help with your health and fitness goals: everyone on the team wants to help you achieve your fitbody goals, so it makes sense that we work together in all areas.
Sports massage sessions are booked at a convenient time and day for you, so we can fit things in around your schedule and around the fitness regime your fitness coach has written for you.
