Massage techniques, or the art of therapeutic touch, has been used by mankind for thousands of years.
Specifically, Sports Massage can be an excellent way of helping alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Overexertion and/or overuse injuries can lead to tissue changes which massage can help to treat by restoring good blood flow and stimulating connective tissue repair.
Sports Massage is also great for prevention of those aches and niggles that can get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger. And, it is not just for the sports person: anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and those in sedentary occupations (emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries).
Sports Massage tends to be deeper and more intense, incorporating a combination of other techniques: Stretching, compression, friction, toning, and trigger point response are also employed as part of the approach.
