What is Sports Massage?
Sports Massage is a type of therapy that is aimed at treating athletes and training individuals to prevent or mitigate the risk of injury by manipulating the injured soft tissue muscles which can improve performance in their respective sport.
Soft tissue problems can be more prevalent in athletes due to repetitive, vigorous and high physical activity. The desired outcome of Sports Massage is to optimise movement and aid in recovery and injury management. Massage techniques can vary and change depending on the outcome, type of sport, stage of training and timing of sports events (pre& post).
