Massage therapy is a popular treatment in sport and also among the general population. It focuses on treating soft tissue problems. Massage is commonly used to treat muscle tension and general aches and pains that typically arise from stress, injury, pain, poor posture or movement dysfunction.
Sports and remedial massage can be used before and after sport and as part of a regular routine to help you maintain performance by preventing increased training stresses developing into longer term injuries. However, you don’t have to be a sports person to benefit from massage. We treat many individuals with, for example, physically demanding jobs or postural problems where this more intense treatment can deliver real benefit.
