The How.

There is a slight stigma attached to Sports Massage Therapy that it is only relevant if you have a sporting related injury. This is not the case. Yes, it’s true that therapists often have an association or interest in sport and injuries which can occur during sport/fitness but their knowledge spans far greater than the sporting world alone. Sports Massage Therapists use many techniques which have been proven to facilitate movement, relieve aches and pains, improve posture, relieve pregnancy aches and relieve some medical conditions such as arthritis. The massage is a dynamic deep tissue therapy. The therapist will identify any problem areas within the soft tissues of the body, such as the muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons and they will provide a customized massage treatment which will aim to maximize functionality of the problem areas whilst also restoring the body to a pain-free, relaxed state. A constant build-up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves. It is an effective, safe therapy which benefits all – young and old!

The Why.

This form of therapy is one of the oldest medical treatments ever used. It not only relieves pain and discomfort but it efficiently encourages the healing of the mind, body and spirit. Sports Massage Therapy is recognized by doctors and other medical professionals as a respected and beneficial therapy for patients. Sports Massage can bring relief from a range of either new or longstanding conditions with muscles and joints. Massage is also an amazing way of counteracting stress!
