Sports massage, also known as deep tissue massage or soft tissue manipulation, is a form of physiotherapy treatment that you certainly don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from, contrary to popular belief. Sports massage is an excellent treatment for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion. It is often recommended after physiotherapy treatment in the rehabilitation of injuries as it can continue work on the body’s soft tissues, muscles, tendons and fascia.
Sports massage is a hands-on therapy that combines a number of techniques. Whether you are training for a competive sporting event or just carry everyday tightness, sports massage is a highly effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system.
