Rugby and Other contact Sports - Sports Massage

Injuries are common in rugby due to the power, speed and contact involved in the game. Small injuries such as cuts, aches and bruises can build up to create a more serious injury and massage can help to ease pain and reduce tension before the injury becomes more serious.

Benefits of massage

Before a game, sports massage can be used to prepare the muscles by increasing blood flow and raising body temperature; massage will help to loosen the muscles and joints which will increase the range of movement. After a game, when a player may be feeling battered and bruised, gentle sports massage will help to speed up recovery by facilitating the removal of waste products such as lactic acid and toxins and reduce tension in the muscles.
