Sports massage

Sports massage involves the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit anyone who is engaged in physical activity. It helps to correct problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused by repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. Sports massage can enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.
Among the many benefits are:
• Effective treatment for many types of injury
• Helps recuperation after injury
• Release of muscle tension and pain
• Monitors stresses which may be building up in the body and warns against potential injury
• Removal of waste products such as acetic acid and carbon dioxide
• Improved posture and flexibility
