No matter which code of football you play, every time you take the field you want to be performing at your best.
Your sport requires you to be able to run, kick, leap and change direction at the drop of a hat and puts enormous pressure and stress into your body which impacts your muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
As a footballer, common areas that are prone to pain and tightness are the muscles of the legs due to the distances that you run during a game and the constant changing of direction. As these muscles become fatigued and tight, they become more prone to injury, especially the calves, hamstrings (back of the thigh) as well as adductor longus, adductor magnus and gracilis (the groin muscles).
So how is a massage going to help me?
To perform and reach your potential, your body needs to be in its best condition. Massage will help you recover quicker from DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) and increase your flexibility and range of motion by stretching out the muscle fibres to a lengthened relaxed state, leaving your body less prone to injury.
Sports massage is not just for professional footballers and it's not just professional footballers who get injuries. You are demanding the most out of your body and you too are also at risk of injury. Even if you don't make your living playing the game you love an injury can impact your ability to work and make a living.
So why is a massage with Laxare Massage different?
When you book a massage, you are not booking a "whole-body massage" where the massage is the same for everyone. You are booking an appointment where the time is taken to assess your body and find out about you, your activities/sports, your pain, your concerns, your needs and together we tailor a strategy that best fits you and your body
