What is Sports Massage?

The common misconception from the treatment title is that ‘Sports Massage’ is only for the sporty, but it is a term used for a deeper variety of massage that was first seemingly popular with people in the sporting field.

This therapy gets deep into the muscle tissue to release trigger points of tension caused by not only activity but everyday postures undertaken in work and home life

It is patterns that we repeat everyday, for example if you sleep on your side every night or work seated everyday for hours – these things all greatly impact your body and in turn create tightness and weakness in muscle tissue resulting in muscular pain. 

Not only can this treatment help to increase range of movement and strength, it can also speed up recovery from injury or pain. It may also boost your immune system, improving lymphatic damage and increasing blood circulation.
