Sports massage is an umbrella term given to the manipulation and stretching of soft tissues in our body. It is used as a treatment method for damaged or stressed muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.
Whether you are an elite athlete trying to improve your personal best, a recreational sports person with tight muscles, an office worker with tense shoulders or a manual worker with aches and pains, our treatments can be tailored to your every need.
Sports massages are commonly used in the rehabilitation of an injury. For specific sporting injuries such as “sprained ankles” or “tennis elbow” specific massage techniques can be applied to alleviate the pain and swelling and bring about a better quality of movement in the joint and surrounding muscles.
For less specific muscular problems, for example, tight hamstrings following knee surgery, or a pulled calf, a sports massage will also be perfect for you; it can help to reduce the tension in the muscles improving flexibility, reducing the pain and generally increasing the quality of movement.
Sports massage can also be used to prevent injuries; regular treatments will ensure your muscles are in top physical form allowing you to perform to the best of your ability making you less prone to injury.
