Sports Massage


Sports massage, applied skillfully, is the most effective therapy for releasing

muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculo-skeletal system. Received

regularly this may help athletes prevent injuries, which might otherwise be

caused by overuse. A constant build-up of tension in the muscles from regular

activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles

themselves. These muscle imbalances may develop and often go undiagnosed

until they are serious enough to cause the athlete discomfort or impede

performance. The skilled massage therapist will be able to detect variations in the

soft tissues and by using the correct techniques, help the sports person maintain

a much healthier physical state.
