Sports & vocal massage

Sports massage can provide many benefits for dancers including:

  • Releasing muscular tension & tightness

  • Can help to increase range of motion at a joint/ flexibility

  • Helps to prevent injuries from occurring or worsening

  • Reduced fatigue & DOMS (Delayed onset muscle soreness)

  • Prepares the muscles ready for dance class

  • Can help to relax the muscles if post-exercise

  • Research has shown massage to have positive effects on self-esteem & anxiety
