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. It is a deeper and more intense form of massage incorporating a number of techniques, which work together to bring about optimum performance; provide injury-free training; minimise post event injuries; improve mood, reduce stress and tension and of course aid in the treatment of sporting injuries.
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.
Sports massage therapy can prepare a person for sport; maintain or improve range of motion and muscle flexibility; relieve stress tension and lead to a more positive attitude.
