Pre event massage can be aimed at high level athletes wanting to prepare for intense competitive events and want to gain an advantage over their competitors. It is also for anybody who is preparing for any type of activity no matter how strenuous it may be. It aims at preparing the individual for strenuous or unfamiliar exercise so that the muscles are warmed up in an appropriate way to help increase performance and prevent injury.

Pre event massage assists an individual in the last stages of preparation for their event. Liverpool Physio's specialist's aim is to loosen up the muscles without affecting the psychological focus but whilst positively affecting the physiological effects of the individual.
