Whether you’re a recreational or a competitive surfer you want your body in top condition so you can spend as much time out in the waves as possible. Massage therapy concentrates on keeping your body in a flexible and pain-free state by increasing range of motion and assisting in recovery. Treatments focus on the muscles specifically used during surfing and is suitable for all levels. Massage is beneficial for any ocean sport where paddling is involved (surf ski, life saving, swimming etc.).
There is evidence to show that sports massage can improve athletic performance up to 20% as it increases oxygen flow in the blood and aids the release of toxins from the muscles. Lets face it, if you have ever been in the ocean you know what it is like to get a decent pounding which can leave the body riddled with tight and sore muscles. If left untreated this can lead to nerves, muscles and bones discomfort and damage. Various massage techniques enhance the body’s own recovery processes, and reduce the risk of some common surf injuries such as whiplash, sciatic nerve pain, lower back, neck and shoulder pain and of course sore or fatigued arms!
