The benefits of sports and remedial massage can be enjoyed by anyone suffering from muscle aches and pains, and or muscle and joint movement restriction as a result of recreational or occupational activity. Sports massage can promote relaxation of muscles to improve range of motion, flexibility of joints and healing of muscle tissue. Treatment can improve recovery time especially from DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) by helping to eliminate metabolic waste pooling into the lymphatic system. It decreases muscle tension and helps relax muscle spasms and trigger points on a neurological level with the aid of neuromuscular techniques (NMT). Scar tissue and or adhesions caused by sports or recreational injuries can be broken down using soft Tissue Release Techniques (STR), Deep Tissue Frictions (DTF) and Muscle Energy Techniques (MET). Sports massage treatments can identify problems areas that need work and can help to prevent injuries in the future.
