What is sports massage?
Massage is defined as “the rubbing and kneading of muscles and joints of the body with the hands”. Sports massage takes this one step further and uses specially taught techniques to release muscle tension and areas of pain.
Sports massage uses massage to manipulate soft tissue throughout the body.
Soft tissue is connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines and sheathes the other soft tissues).
Trauma, strenuous physical activity or repetitive strain (such as bad posture or sitting at a desk for hours) can all lead to soft tissue dysfunction and imbalances. Sports massage is a great way to alleviate pain, correct dysfunction and to prevent injury.
