Massage for Sports

Through repetitive movement patterns common in sports or through direct trauma, scar tissue develops within the muscles.

Sports massage and other soft tissue mobilisation techniques can help realign any present scar tissue or fibrous adhesions present within the muscles and encourage nutrition to the surrounding tissues. This not only aids recovery but also acts as a preventative measure in reducing the risk of further injury to the area.

After exercise, soreness or fatigue can set in caused by micro trauma to the muscle fibres along with the accumulation of chemicals such as lactic acid. Massage aids with lymphatic drainage which helps flush out toxins and aid with recovery. With the use of certain Muscle Energy Techniques increased strength and flexibility can also be achieved.
