Sports and Remedial Massage
Everyday life can put stresses and strains on our body without you realising it.
Sports massage therapy is mainly used to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity.
Remedial massage therapy is used to resolve day-to-day problems and for general overuse.
This deeper, more intense form of massage incorporates a number of techniques and can help to:
- Reduce pain
- Increase circulation
- Stimulate metabolic removal
- Speed up healing/recovery
- Improve posture
- Prevent further injury
- Reduce scar tissue
Anyone can benefit from sports massage including sports persons and people in physically demanding jobs. Even those where the physicality is not quite so obvious (occupational, emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries) can experience remarkable benefits.
