WHAT IS SPORTS MASSAGE?

Sports massage is the manipulation of the soft tissue to benefit someone who undertakes regular physical activity.

Soft tissue is simply the connective tissue which has not hardened into bone or cartilage and includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM SPORTS MASSAGE?


Everyone!

It's not just for athletes, sports massage would benefit anyone who has tightness or pain.

Sports massage is designed to correct the musculoskeletal imbalances in the soft tissue which have been caused by repetitive and strenuous activity and trauma.

HOW SPORTS MASSAGE WORKS AND THE BENEFITS?

1. It works by compression causing ischaemia, which is the restriction of blood supply to the tissues, which causes a shortage of oxygen which is needed for cellular metabolism.
2. Pain mechanism releasing endorphins, which help relieve pain and induce feelings of pleasure and euphoria.
3. Assists recovery between intense training sessions
4. Helps recuperation after injury
5. Reduces stress
6. Aids flexibility
​7. Relaxing, energising and restorative
