SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY 

 

Sports massage is the manual manipulation of the muscles, helping people who have physically demanding lifestyles and hobbies. This kind of therapeutic massage considers the impact of certain activities on specific joints, muscle groups, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue groups. Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma.

MEDICAL EFFECTS

 

Sports massage releases and reduces tension in muscles, improves circulation and encourages the removal of waste products such as lactic acid which builds up during sporting activities. 

Following exercise, sports massage helps to relax the body which can prevent injury. It is of particular benefit to those who are prone to overuse injuries, as the muscles are allowed to relax and recover fully before the next exercise session.
