Don’t let the name mislead you. Sports massage should really be referred to as ‘Soft Tissue Therapy’.
Although it was originally developed to improve performance and treat sporting injuries, ultimately, Sports massage aims to combat the negative effects of repetitive actions and movements.
These repetitions can lead to muscular imbalances, which in turn lead to aches, pains, tension and injuries. It is therefore especially advantageous to anyone whose work routine involves repetitive activities e.g desk-based work and driving.
If you exercise regularly or intensely, Sports massage will help you recover better as well as reducing risk of injury and improving performance.
Sports massage is also great for parents who ache from carrying their children around all day.
