Sports massage is a type of massage that is tailored to preventing and relieving sporting injuries or soreness. It is of benefit to anyone that exercises, even if it is only mild exercise such as regular walking.
It can be carried out before, during, or after playing sport or exercising and uses techniques that are designed to increase endurance and performance, to minimise the chances of injury and, if there is an injury, to reduce the recovery time.
Sports Massage involves the use of lots of specific Soft and Deep Tissue Massage techniques to aid in flushing out the muscles and release built up contractions.
Trigger Point therapy can also be used to decrease any built up tension through the muscles as a result from over training. This frees up muscles to perform at an optimum level.
