What is a sports massage?
A hands-on and intensive massage, sports massage is designed to improve sports performance, or post-activity recovery. Sports massage is a manipulative technique that works with your soft tissue to alleviate pain, improve healing, and help to prepare you for the stresses and strains of physical activity. It’s a way to achieve balance whilst releasing tension. The focus is on reducing muscle stiffness and reducing swelling. It can help improve healing times and recovery post-exertion. It’s also used for reducing scar appearance and improving mobility in the fascia around the scar.
