Sports Massage is a form of therapy designed to assist in correcting imbalances that have already built up in soft tissue. These imbalances can arise just from using the body in a repetitive way, in sport or in day-to-day life. Tensions build up in the soft tissues as we use them and this is completely natural. However, it is the pattern of the tension and how long it remains that can result in pain/discomfort/stiffness and can also be detrimental to sporting performance.
You can think of Sports Massage as working to dissipate the tensions and “resetting” the body to a state from which it wants to work, making your body happier and more efficient.
