Sports Massage techniques are used as the most effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculo-skeletal system. The main aim is to restore full functionality to muscles and other soft tissues which can simply mean easing the tension which may have built up in your shoulders and neck during long hours at work or helping to aid recovery and restore maximum performance to an over trained muscle-group of a sports person.

Muscle damage and stiffness can also occur as a result of the overuse of certain muscle groups, whether due to work related factors or through sporting activities. A continuous build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons as well as the muscles themselves. Massage plays a big part in the prevention of injuries and is also used as part of a rehabilitation programme to treat an injury.

Sports Massage Therapy combines general and Deep Tissue manipulation with various forms of stretching techniques to loosen up tight muscles, break up adhesions in muscle fibres and restore muscle function. These include techniques such as Soft Tissue Release, Muscle Energy Technique, Neuromuscular Technique and Myofascial Release.

Benefits of Sports Massage include:-
  • Reduces recovery time of a damage or overworked muscle or tissue.
  • Breaks down adhesions within muscles improving suppleness and mobility.
  • Help prevent injury by treating any muscle weakness or problem area.
  • Reduces stiffness and swelling by clearing out waste products and toxins.
  • Enables muscles and joints to heal faster following an injury.
  • Helps improve the flexibility of muscles and joints.
  • De-stress tense postural muscles and improve spinal alignment.
  • Improves lymph and blood circulation.
