Sports massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. Sports massage is ideal for treating sports injuries as well as a preventative treatment and deals with the health of muscle and connective tissue, range of movement, tone, symmetry, balance of muscle and quality of posture.
Sports Massage may help to alleviate the tension and stress of sports-related injuries and assist in the prevention of injury before and after a sporting event. We use soft tissue massage and stretching, trigger-point therapy, kinesio taping, and exercise prescription as part of your treatment.
It is not only limited to sportspersons, but for anyone who enjoys an active lifestyle. So whether you’re a swimmer, a runner, a cyclist, a racket sports fan or a weight lifter, we can help!
