‘Football Fever’ is quickly gaining momentum with another hugely exciting AFL season approaching. Athletes are cramming in their final training sessions to prime their bodies for peak performance, and with physical conditioning being paramount, sports massage is a vital part of recovery. In fact, if it weren’t for sports massage, many footballers wouldn’t be able to get back onto the field.

Given the footballers’ intense physical regime and the sport’s potential for injuries, their muscles are subject to repeated stresses and traumas.  By applying mechanical pressure to the soft tissues, circulation is increased, flexibility is improved, joints have a greater range of movement and stiffness is decreased. Aches and pains are relieved and injuries have a chance of a speedier recovery.

Footballers of all levels need massage to recover from the game and massage therapistsare always in hot demand by football teams, so employment opportunities are excellent. If you love your football, a career in sports massage could be a dream come true.
