Deep-tissue Massage

Sports massage, or deep-tissue massage therapy, is geared toward athletes of every kind, from weekend joggers to world-class professionals. Before and after a sports event or a running session, specialised sports massage milks the lactic acid toxin from the muscles.

Whatever you are suffering―back pain, neck or shoulder stiffness, muscle injury or stress, a sports massage will make you feel better and get you back to your normal daily routine in a very short time. Although the obvious benefit of deep-tissue massage is for those who have suffered sports injuries, the therapy is also suitable for sedentary office workers, dancers and other non-athletes who can benefit from expert massaging of their muscles and soft tissues.

David Canevaro’s sports massage/deep-tissue massage can help you:

  • Relieve stress
  • Prevent injury
  • Improve performance
  • Improve self-awareness
  • Improve training

Sports massage improves blood flow through your tissues, which effects quicker recovery from hard work or training; you can train more safely, efficiently and effectively. Sports massage prevents delayed onset of muscle soreness and reduces muscular tension helping to improve flexibility. It stimulates lymphatic flow and drainage, assists in the removal of metabolic waste and facilitates the supply of essential nutrients to tissues for the best possible recovery.

Pre-event sports massage is particularly popular with many athletes for relieving nervous tension and stimulating circulation, enabling them to achieve maximum performance. Sports massage allows you to monitor your own condition and adjust your training accordingly. It also enables David to give you advice on specific training, stretching and equipment for the maintenance and improvement of your performance.

David’s deep-tissue massage not only helps you to recover from injury, but to prevent future injuries occurring! This is because it identifies any imbalances and imperfections in deep-tissues at an early stage, so that correction can be made before any damage develops.

David Canevaro’s massage is for everybody, not just sports people! You do not have to be an athlete to benefit from massage therapy. Many of David’s clients are office workers who have developed stiff neck and shoulders from sitting at a desk, pregnant women suffering abdominal and pelvic pain and people who just want to unwind and enjoy the relaxed and loose feeling you get from a massage.
