Massage

Sports/remedial massage involves the rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. Various massage techniques are employed to manipulate the tissues to provide relief from various problems including:

  • Repetitive strain injuries (RSI’s)
  • Sprains
  • Tension
  • Fatigue

Massage can also assist in the prevention of injury and aid relaxation and each massage is tailored to specific, individual needs.

Anyone can benefit from a sports massage and you don’t need to be an athlete to benefit!

Sports massage may:

  • Improve circulation and lymphatic flow
  • Assist in the removal of metabolic waste
  • Sedate or stimulate nerve endings
  • Increase or decrease muscle tone
  • Increase or decrease muscle length
