What is sports massage:

“Sports Massage is the term applied to the discipline of using massage for the specific benefit of all sports and exercise participants. It covers the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body eg. muscles, ligaments and tendons.
Sports massage should be tailored to each individuals' needs to positively enhance ones ability to perform.”
(Definition by the Sports Massage Association).

Sports massage is no longer exclusive to professional athletes and sports people. More and more people who take part in sport at all levels are seeking treatment to prevent injury and to reduce fatigue following training.

Sports massage increases blood circulation, removes muscle waste and restores nutrition to the muscle. It promotes relaxation and well being having both physical and psychological benefits. It can considerably speed up your recovery time from training and therefore increase the quality of your training.

A Sports Massage Therapist can identify potential problems at an early stage, and as a result, undertake preventative treatment, and offer relevant training advice. You may also be made aware of areas of tension, previously unknown to you.

Whatever your level of participation in sport, a sports massage can greatly improve your personal performance.
