What is Sports Massage?

Regular massage can help reduce the risk of injury in those with active lifestyles, such as athletes or regular participants in sports.

Without relief, muscle tension can increase over time and result in stressed joints and tendons, and pain within the muscular tissue itself.

So what is Sport & Remedial Massage Therapy?

Sport & Remedial Massage Therapy is a deep manipulative therapy that specialises in the management and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body, e.g. muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Remedial Massage simply means using manual therapy techniques to try to remedy a problem.

Sports Massage applies all the same techniques and principles in a way that best meet the specific needs of the athlete. Sports massage is generally a deeper firmer massage, working through to the deeper layer of muscle, breaking adhesions between muscles and muscle fibres that can cause muscle dysfunction.
