The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to alleviate the stress and tension, which builds up in the body's soft tissues during physical activity.
Where minor injuries occur, due to over exertion and/or overuse, massage can alleviate them quickly and effectively. More importantly, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement.
This treatment is not just for the sports person. Anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs, or people with occupational, emotional and postural stress, which may also produce similar characteristics to sports injuries.
