So you would like to know the benefits you can expect from a sports massage? well, there are lots. Sports and remedial massage is a specialised, dynamic deep tissue massage which can help treat numerous problems in the soft tissues (muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons). A sports massage is designed to maximise physical function and restore the body to a pain-free and balanced state.
My Sports massage techniques have proven to be highly effective at relieving pain, helping with rehabilitation after injury, improving movement and releasing stress throughout the body. A Sports massage is not just for sports people and can help whether the problem is a result of a sport or leisure pursuit, a physically demanding job or lifestyle, poor posture or medical conditions such as arthritis.
Sports Massage and Remedial Therapy has developed massively over the years and is able to help with a wide variety of conditions. The most requested problems include back neck and shoulder pains, muscular pains, aching or stiff joints, an injury that is taking a long time to heal, complaints from people who finish their day with pains in back, neck or wrists.
A sports massage can help, if you have a physically demanding job, if you are off work through back pain or repetitive strain injury or even if you just get aches and pains from cooking, cleaning, gardening or decorating.
