Proudly Serving Canberra, ACT
A cultural treasure trove, Canberra is the capital of Australia. It is in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and an exciting place to visit or call home. If you’re looking to museum-hop, visit coffee cafes, and enjoy gorgeous natural beauty, then you won’t want to miss it.
Canberra is also home to the only combined zoo and aquarium facility in Australia. It spans a jaw-dropping 19 ha (47 acres) with an equally impressive 200 animals on site, including the only Tigon on the continent and numerous endangered animal breeding programs.
Just 40 km to the south of the city, Namadgi National Park makes for a breathtaking day trip to explore the region, get in touch with nature, and experience the wildlife in the area.
The city features unique architectural and design styles planned by American architect, Walter Griffin along with his wife, Marion Griffin, who won a worldwide competition for the city’s plan, which incorporates sweeping greenbelts and the use of geometric shapes.
Canberra’s fantastic festivals are also a major attraction, including the popular Floriade, a celebration of the city’s many spring blooms. If you’re looking for a great place to start a tour of the city, a fair number of Canberra’s must-see attractions are within walking distance of the Parliamentary Triangle which overlooks Lake Burley Griffin.

How Does Sports Massage Differ From Our Other Services?
If you’re an athlete, there are a range of benefits associated with a sports-focused massage. If you’re planning on engaging in regular physical activity, using massage and other forms of physical therapy can help you perform at an optimal level. Let’s take a more in-depth look at how sports massage may be able to improve your life.
What Is Sports Massage?
Unlike other forms of massage, there isn’t a set description for a sports massage. The type of sports massage you’ll receive will depend on your purpose of the massage and the desired outcome. Different goals will result in a unique kind of sports massage.
The primary aim of a sports massage is to help avoid injury, improve performance, reduce recovery time, and assist in boosting endurance. It’s critical to work with a sports massage therapist that has a deep understanding of the various types of sports massage and how to implement them on an athlete. Sports massage therapists will use a variety of techniques, including stretching, kneading, targeting pressure points, and more. These techniques serve different purposes and provide recipients with a range of benefits.
What Are the Benefits?
If you’re planning on obtaining a sports massage, it’s critical to understand the benefits. Having a deep understanding of how this type of massage can help your body is crucial if you want to get the most from your next massage therapist visit. There are many obvious benefits associated with sports massages.
If you currently have tension or pain in your muscles, a sports massage can help target specific trouble spots to help improve recovery and eliminate pain. Because sports massage has a similar methodology to physiotherapy, you can expect to benefit from improvements in muscle function. As an athlete, your recovery time period is critical to your success. Using a sports massage can help you avoid lengthy and ineffective recovery periods that hamper your next athletic performance.
If you’re suffering from an acute injury, you can also consult with a sports massage therapist to determine if any type of massage therapy may be able to improve injury recovery time. Depending on the injury, a sports massage may be able to accelerate the healing process. Lastly, sports massage can help you relax and prepare for upcoming events. Performing at a high level is stressful on the mind and the body. It’s critical to use relaxation methods to prevent the accumulation of stress.
Contact a Mobile Sports Massage Therapist
No matter what sport you’re playing, or what level you’re playing at, it’s critical to make sure you spend your time engaging in activities that benefit your performance. As mentioned previously, it’s essential to use a sports massage therapist who truly understands sports massage and the related benefits.
If you’re looking for a qualified sports massage therapist to travel to your home, we offer a mobile massage service that ensures you can receive a world-class massage without having to leave your front door.
