Sports Massage is a deep tissue massage therapy that realigns deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It is very helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas e.g. sore tight shoulders, neck area, lower back, legs etc. The massage is deep and concentrates on areas of tension and pain.

Deep Tissue massage works by physically breaking down adhesions and rigid tissue in muscles tendons and ligaments. Pressure and friction is used across the grain of the muscle. Neuro muscular techniques are used along with pressure points into areas of tension.

After treatment stiffness and pain may be experienced but this should subside within 3 days. Ice may be recommended to reduce inflammation. Stretching exercises are shown to aid rehabilitation.
