Sports massage is a specialised form of massage that can be developed to address the particular needs of participants of sport and exercise.

Why sports massage

Sports massage is normally used before, during and after physical activities.

The purpose of sports massage is to prepare the performer for peak performance, to reduce the effects of fatigue, to relive swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and prevent injuries occurring. Sports massage involves a firmer application of pressure, utilising a mixture of techniques ranging from deep tissue, myofascial release and facilitated stretching.
