Sports Massage

What is Sports Massage?

Sports massage is a form of body work involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit people engaged in regular physical activity. Soft tissue is connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. This form of massage has been designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances of soft tissue that can stem from repetitive and strenuous physical activity or trauma. The application of this massage prior to or following exercise/competition can enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.


Sports massage can help everybody!

Sports massage is not only for sports people. Anyone who is experiencing everyday levels of strain and stress will also benefit. Sports Massage releases muscular tension and pain, aids the lymphatic system, improves circulation and enhances the functional quality of muscles.

That being said, if you are an athlete there is very little doubt that this form of massage can have an enormous impact on your performance. Its unique advantages are prevention of injury, controlling repetitive strain and overuse syndromes.

Regular treatment allows you to train to your full potential and recover optimally. It can also help by ensuring muscles are in peak condition to allow you to perform to your best ability.
