Sports Massage is the term applied to the discipline of using massage for the specific benefit of all sports and exercise participants. It covers the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body e.g. muscles, ligaments and tendons. It can also be used to benefit those of a less sporty persuasion as it focuses on the individual needs of the client, with massages being tailored to positively enhance one’s ability to perform either on a daily basis in the home and workplace or in a sporting arena.
With the ever growing number of people taking part in sport, combined with the increasing competitiveness and intensity of physical exercise, the demand for sports massage is also increasing and has become recognised as a skill which may aid recovery and enhance performance.
