More about Sports Massage Therapy:

Sports Massage Therapy is a system based on an in-depth knowledge of surface anatomy and
physiology, along with an understanding of the physical demands of various sports. Treatment involves the application of specific techniques to assess and manipulate the soft tissues of the body, in order to prevent or rehabilitate musculoskeletal injuries.

By palpation, the therapist is able to locate, identify and treat areas of specific tensions within the
tissues that could lead to potential injury sites

Sports Massage is adapted to the needs of each individual and is not only for athletes, it is also
beneficial to people who suffer from general aches and pains usually brought on repetitive movements at work or more commonly bad posture. Through treatment, the build up of aches and pains that are often ignored or suppressed with drugs can be alleviated and the risk of further, more serious injury can be reduced.
