Massage is recorded as one of the earliest forms of physical therapy and was used over 3000 years ago in China, India and Greece. The popularity of sports massage has continued to grow as a form of treatment ever since.
What is Sports Massage?
Sports Massage involves the manipulation of soft tissue in order to loosen tightened connective tissue. This is great form of treatment for people who struggle with muscular tension.
The massage is designed to focus on stiff and tight muscles, assisting in correcting the imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity, and trauma. Massage breaks up adhesions formed within the muscle, which increases tissue mobility, and frees up movement within the body. Regular sports massage, prior to and after exercise, has shown to enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.
