Sports Massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, ligaments and tendons. Sport Massage can be used before and after participating in sport to help prevent injury, but it can also be used to aid healing when an injury has occurred during sport.
Techniques employed by sports massage practitioners have been developed to ensure effective and efficient results are gained by the following:
- Improving circulation & lymphatic flow
- Assisting in the removal of metabolic waste
- To sedate or stimulate nerve endings
- Increasing or decreasing muscle tone
- Increasing or decreasing muscle length
Sports Massage techniques have been developed for athletes and people participating in sport but can be beneficial to people in their occupations or any other activity. The techniques discussed can help relieve many day to day problems that everyone experiences.
