Sports massage is a soft tissue therapy technique which aims to promote healing of the connective tissue within the body, through enhanced circulation and breakdown of scar tissue. It can also be used to invigorate an athlete prior to intensive training or competition. This type of massage typically targets specific areas of the body which need relief from tension and which may be damaged through injury. During the massage other techniques which stretch and manipulate the soft tissue structures of the body are often incorporated to get the best results from the session.
The benefits of sports massage include:
– Pain Relief
– Increased blood flow
– Reduction in stress, anxiety & muscle tension
– Break down of scar tissue and adhesions
