Sports Massage

Sports massage is a type of Swedish massage, it stimulates the blood and lymph fluid to circulate the body. Massage, applied professionally is the most effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring muscle properties. Received regularly injuries can be prevented, and the constant build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity that may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons can be released.

Sports massage can be used in the treatment of specific injuries, such as hamstring strains, as well as to help correct muscle imbalances, overuse and postural issues. It was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. However, you don't have to be elite to benefit from sports massage. Sports massage is good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion.
