Sports Massage is a targeted massage treatment, focusing on treating injuries, niggles or problem areas identified by the client. Sports massage involves firm soft tissue work such as trigger point release, but can also involve active and passive stretching techniques to achieve improvements in flexibility and muscle tightness. As your therapist will be working on an injury or perhaps something like posture, you may expect a brief assessment to enable the massage therapist to identify areas that require more attention.
Sports massage is not just for those involved in fitness and sport! It can be enjoyed by anybody who is wanting to work on a particular issue. It is however beneficial in terms of injury prevention and pre and post event, to complement training, aid performance and recovery.
