Sports Massage is the manipulation of muscle and connective tissue. It is used to
improve the function of muscles and the healing and prevention of injuries. Sports
massage consists of deep tissue work to alleviate tension and stress within muscles
easing movement and posture while reducing pain and discomfort. It is effective in
alleviating muscle tension and restoring natural balance to the body.
Receiving sports massage regularly can help prevent this latent build up of tension
within the body. If undetected these muscle imbalances may at best limit movement
and strength but at worst, if undiagnosed, can become serious enough to cause chronic
pain to muscles and joints in the surrounding areas. Sports massage can detect these
variations in the soft tissues before further complications develop, helping to maintain
the body’s healthy physical state.
Sports massage can:
Increase flexibility and relaxation
Decrease muscle tension, stiffness, soreness and pain
