Real Motion believes sports massage is an integral part of the recovery process. Therefore, using it alongside joint mobilisations, and the prescription of rehabilitation and functional exercise ensures a holistic approach to recovery. As a result this gives the best chance of a full return to optimal functional fitness.
Sports massage is a fantastic stand alone treatment for injury free patients who regularly train for sports or workout in the gym. Therefore, a regular massage treatment can help identify any niggles that may be forming and rectify them before they develop into an injury. A massage treatment should be a part of any active patients training plan, ideal as a rest day treat!
