What is Sports Massage?
Sports Massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissue of the body. Soft tissue includes all the connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (the connective tissues that lines and surrounds the other soft tissues). Sports massage is designed to reduce the tension and imbalances that are caused from exercise and sport. It can be delivered before and after exercise to enhance performance, reduce risk of injury and improve recovery.
Do I need to play sport to have a Sports Massage?
No, if you do any exercise at all, whether that's going jogging to keep fit, playing football with your friends or children, or playing any sport on a casual level, you will feel the benefits of Sports Massage. Exercise of any form and at any level carries some risk of injury and Sports Massage can help to reduce this risk by keeping your muscles supple and in a good condition. If injury does occur, even if it's only minor, Sports Massage will help to get you back in shape quicker by increasing blood flow to the area, which promotes recovery and helps to reduce any inflammation..
