WHAT IS IT?
Sports therapy massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit people engaged in regular physical activity or after injuries. The soft tissues in the body includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines and encloses the muscle and other soft tissues). Sports therapy massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive or strenuous activity or trauma. The application of sports therapy massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.
