Why use Sports Massage?

Deep tissue massage techniques are used to release muscular tension whether sports related, stress related or simply down to bad posture.
Pre-event massage: Warms up the muscles – getting the blood circulating and allowing longer workout reducing the risk of injury, increasing flexibility and greater range of movement.
Post-event massage: Relieves muscle cramps and spasm, removes lactic acid build up in muscles that occurs with exercise. Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons.
