The prime purpose of sport massage is to promote healing, restore function and achieve optimal performance for the client. Sports massage can benefit anyone who has soft tissue tension due to over-activity, injury, emotional stress, poor posture, muscle imbalance or general decondition.
Sports massage tends to be intense and deep. It is based on elements of Swedish massage and techniques include effleurage, petrissage, tapotement, vibration, compression, friction, trigger point release and muscle energy techniques. Skillfully applied massage can assist with pain via blocking pain signals sent from the body to the brain.
You should notice a reduction in symptoms after just one session but your symptoms will be monitored in subsequent treatments.
