About Post Event Treatment
Post event treatment involves the application of a range of massage techniques to assist recovery from activity. Post event massage can be performed from 30 minutes up to 48 hours after intense exercise. Post-event massage aims to increase the body’s rate of recovery by reducing inflammation in the muscles.
Post event massage also aims to increase vascular and lymphatic activity, aiding the body’s natural process of removing waste products after exercise, such as lactic acid. Lactic acid is produced in the muscles during exercise and contributes towards delayed onset muscle soreness, fatigue and stiffness.
